Lemons To Lemonade – Review: Vero Profumo Rubj Voile d’Extrait

By Sandra

Sometimes life throws us lemons. My answer to that is always try to laugh at it not just make lemonade. But sometimes that does not work very well. I have to improvise at times and also lay off the chocolate so I turn to perfume. Neroli and orange blossom scents are known to evoke a happier place. I on the other hand have always turned to tuberose or jasmin to lift my spirits. Now I have a perfume that is so utterly perfect it is almost genius.

I have said it before and I will say it again – Vero Kern from Vero Profumo has perfectly stunning perfumes and now they are in the concentration of Voile d’Extrait.

A couple of years ago I read Birgit’s reviews of Vero Profumo perfumes in extrait. I immediately ordered the sample set of all three (at the time) extraits and fell madly and deeply in love with Rubj. The only problem was that after I ordered the bottle of extrait, I left it standing on my dresser for fear of running out of the beautiful perfume.

Here comes the Voile! I was thrilled to learn of the new launch and immediately bought a decant to see if it lives up to the extrait version. On first spray I was immediately transported to the first time I tried the extrait and have been wearing this quite regularly. It lifts my spirits instantly and centers me.

Notes include:
Bergamot, mandarin, neroli, orange flower absolute, tuberose, jasmin, cedar, mousse de chène and musk. (as noted on Cafleurebon and on Bois de Jasmin.)

Rubj is perhaps the most perfect happy perfume for me. It is an orange blossom scent with swirls of tuberose and jasmine. Rubj makes me feel all dressed up and ready for a night on the town. This is a hypnotically luscious perfume which brings an instant smile to my face.

If I think about it, I believe that Rubj is aptly named. Ruby the precious stone is available in all facets of the red spectrum. Red is such a warm and inviting color – it also means luck and good fortune to many. This is a red perfume as best as it comes. It is voluptuous and warm. But what is so wonderful is that this perfume does not screech in its wake. It warms on my skin and in the later dry down stage, it is more of a skin scent.

When I first spray Rubj Voile d’Extrait I get mostly neroli and orange blossom. It is almost – can I say – delicious. The tuberose and jasmin are beautifully blended and it becomes a red bouquet of tropical flowers. A few hours in the bouquet is still lush but quieter, closer to the skin. There is a very soft hint of musk intertwined with the orange blossom and tuberose.

Sublime.

    Sounds beautiful. Must try and get some! Haha. Gorgeous review. xxx

  2. Sandra says:

    Thank you for introducing us! Must get full bottle. xo

    I have the EDP and while I would love to try the other versions of the scent I don’t know if my pocketbook could handle it. As it is I want Onda too. I’m trying to avoid Kiki and Mito because I have a hunch I’d like those as well. I bet the voile is wonderful…now I’m going to keep thinking about it.

    • Sandra says:

      Haha! I know exactly how you feel. This is all terrible for my wallet. Don’t even get me started on her new perfume which I am dying to try.

    I think that Rubj is my favourite Ver Profumo scent. I have only tried it in eau de parfum. Extraid and Voile are beyond my reach at the moment because the brand is not being sold in Poland.

    • Sandra says:

      Rubj is a fine perfume indeed. The perfumes are not sold in Vienna either. Thankfully we can sample them with online shopping.

  5. Tara says:

    …and my third Vero lemming springs into life :)

    Sandra, I’m adding this to the list along with Mito and Rozy thanks to your gorgeous review. A version with more orange blossom than tuberose sounds perfect for me. I could appreciate the joy of it before but this makes me want to own a bottle. My next visit to Bloom is going to be a costly one!

    • Sandra says:

      Sorry Tara! :)
      There is a nice amount of tuberose in Rubj. I hope it will not be too much for you. Which are your other two lemmings? When are you headed to Bloom again? I think I need I teleport myself to London…

  6. Hey there Sandra,
    I have a bottle of Rubj EdP here, unopened. I bought it in LA when it was sprayed on me in Scent Bar and I nearly had a Stendahl Syndrome moment. I am scared to open it in case it sends me
    Portia xx

  7. I love perfume from Vero Kern, and I’m kind of scared to try new ones, because I’m afraid to like these too. If only finances were not limited I would buy all…. Rubj is a masterpiece and I hardly find words to describe it. So I’ll just stop here.

  8. fruwinther says:

    Rubj is a masterpiece indeed. Love the edp, which I own. When I recently bought Mito in Voile, I also got a tester of Rubj in the same concentration, but sadly it’s either off,or the chemistry with my skin just horrible. What I got was rotting flowers on a bed of orange blossom and some cured ham…and something fecal…BUT your review was GREAT!

  9. Sandra says:

    So glad that you got your Mito Voile. But oh no – that is just horrible! I can only hope that the sample is just off.

  10. Vanessa says:

    Just in the last week I have been enjoying Rubj in both edp and extrait form. Thanks for whetting my appetite with your luscious description of this third variant!

  11. Kandice says:

    I have not tried any version of this fragrance yet, but I really want to after reading your review. It has several of my favorite scents all rolled up into one – neroli, orange blossom, tuberose and jasmin. I hadn’t tried any of Vero Kern’s fragrances yet because I didn’t know what to start with – now I know! Thanks for the review.
