Rouge Smoking BDK Parfums note


I decided to get a box for myself to learn about this trendy perfume.

The bottle design for BDK Parfums’ Smoking Rouge, a highly traditional scent, is also obviously inspired by traditional elements. The bottle from Gris Charnel, which is made entirely of glass, impresses with its stark minimalism and an immediate nod to vintage Art Deco. The bottle’s minimalist design also draws attention to the hue of the scent, which is dormant inside and waiting to reveal its aromatic subtleties to us. To more than do credit to the premium aesthetic underlying Gris Charnel, the Eau de Parfum has a beautifully red-color liquid.

The only thing that distinguaishes it is the front’s white label, which features the name of the Gris Charnel scent in bold, eye-catching black characters. The black cap, which sits on the bottle like the Gris Charnel perfume and whose rounded shape immediately invokes the domes that also adorn the Paris Palace, completes the contemporary design of the Smoking Rouge.

The Red hue of the Eau de Parfum not only adds to its premium aesthetic but also creates a sense of heat and seduction. The black cap, reminiscent of the iconic domes of the Paris Palace, further enhances the contemporary design, making Smoking Rouge a truly captivating fragrance.

Rouge Smoking BDK Parfums


Smoking Rouge is a fragrance that initially seems unimpressive and unappealing for the first two hours. However, as the third hour progresses, it grows on the wearer, with soft vanilla wisps andsweet sense appearing and then disappearing. The alcohol accord in the bouquet begins to weaken in the third hour, and the soft, sweet aura and spices reappear before fading away. The scent’s development depends on the amount of smell used. The Tonka accord becomes a layer within the bouquet if there is less smell.
The Cherry Accord always becomes an impressionistic blur on the wearer’s skin by the end of the fourth hour. The Vanilla may return simultaneously as a strong, prominent note that shares and occasionally dominates the center stage. The notes in Smoking Rouge become more abstract and hazy as the seventh hour progresses and more concentrated on santal-like woody and ambery scents.
The sillage and longevity of Gris Charnel depend on the amount of scent used. After a small application, the scent becomes softer at the beginning of the third hour. It lingers on the skin for around 8.5 hours in total. Overall, the Smoking Rouge lasts for 11.75 hours before becoming a skin fragrance.

  • LENGTH: 12-14 HOURS

Where and When?

The projection on this one is modest, but the longevity is 8 hours. At the five-hour point, it begins to smell like skin. The perfume is pretty straight and doesn’t vary much. I would wear this to formal gatherings or as nightwear. I would not wear this to work (primarily because I have other fragrances for that). But then again, you can wear whatever you want. Rouge received an 8/10 rating.

Overall, Rouge is a reliable and long-lasting fragrance that is suitable for special occasions. Its moderate projection ensures that it won’t overpower others in formal settings. However, if you prefer more dynamic scents with varying notes, you might find Rouge to be a bit monotonous. Nonetheless, personal preferences vary; ultimately, deciding what fragrance to wear is entirely up to you.
