Fresh. Modern. Airy. Individual. Addictive. Sensual. Not words you'd automatically associate with a rose fragrance. But the moment you mist Paul Smith Rose, you abandon all preconceptions. Paul Smith brings to this fragrance his signature skill an instinctive knack of redefining the classics, introducing an unmistakable note of edgy elegance. This is, quite simply, a rose fragrance for a new generation. The Rose at the heart of this fragrance bears Paul Smith's name. It was cultivated and given as a gift from Paul's wife for his birthday. This proved to be an inspiration for a fragrance. The Paul Smith Rose is a potently fragrant, cochineal pink bloom, with a tight peony centre and full outer centre was first presented in 2006 at the Chelsea Flower Show. No blooms are harvested, crushed and distilled - instead the living flower is isolated in a glass bell and equipment 'inhales' the scent. The rose's scent has been blended with Turkish rose oil and green tea with a sparkling halo of violet and magnolia flowers. A woody accord, with touches of cedar, provides depth and structure, which along with soft husks, give it an addictive quality. A rose by any other name might be something you expect.... Rose by Paul Smith is something altogether different. Fresh and individual, modern and memorable.

I can't get enough of Paul Smith's Rose. I started wearing it 18 months ago, and have repeat-bought it several times now as I wear it every day.
I'm very particular about fragrance. Many perfumes make me feel sick and dizzy, but Rose is so light, soft and natural smelling: like crushed rose petals. It is beautiful and inviting, not complex and not too strong. It's still there at the end of the day and does not go "off". My scarves all smell of it now, and it's left a fresh and comforting scent on them, not a stale one.
Even if you're not a floral person, I urge you to try it next time you're near a tester bottle :)

I switched to this conditioner along with the shampoo nearly a year ago after deciding that my hair did indeed need some "Recovery" after much dying and heated styling.
This conditioner is a high quality, luxurious product with a sweet, fruity fragrance that is soothing and pleasant. It leaves hair feeling smooth, silky and frizz free. Used along with the shampoo and Tigi's Small Talk, my hair has never felt better! So smooth and healthy and under control, I've not needed to use a blow dryer or heated tools since I began using these products, which of course combats the underlying problem. I cannot emphasis enough how Urban Antidotes No 2 outperforms other products that I have used in the past.
Very high praise. Recovery complete!

This caring formulation is packed full of conditioning agents and natural oils to moisturise hair and control frizz, while energising ingredients add oomph to hair for serious body and shine. Limp locks are animated with health, volume and light control, and hair looks thick and full. Great for all hair lengths and textures, the protective formulation also shields hair from heat and environmental damage. Pump a small amount into the palms and work through wet hair. Style as usual. Blueberry fragrance. Vitamin B5 conditions and moisturises. Jojoba Oil shine and manageability. Sunflower Seed Oil natural emulsifier.

Small Talk does exactly what it claims to do: body, volume, and separates and controls for no frizz.
I work into damp hair and let it air dry, and my word, it's such a time saver. I haven't used heated tools or a blow dryer at all since I started using this nearly a year ago, as when my hair is dry I give it a little ruffle and it's already styled. As such, my hair is in much better condition now. The smell is lovely too, like fruity sweeties :)
My bottle is coming to an end after, like I say, nearly a year of use and I'm about to order some more. It's an utter bargain for the quality of product, the length of time it lasts, the amount of hassle it has saved and the compliments I get ;)
I will not be without it now!
My hair style: tousled bob.
