Rosy & Earnest Pistachio Delight (Nathalie Feisthauer) 2024

by Olya Bar

“It’s an afternoon in a bustling New York City restaurant. I’m there, laptop open, fingers tapping away at the keys, when something on the menu catches my eye—a pistachio crème brûlée. As someone who holds a deep appreciation for the classic dessert, this discovery immediately sparks excitement. When it arrives, it’s everything I imagined and more: creamy, perfectly toasted, and wholly addictive. This moment of indulgence parallels my experience with my first wear of Rosy & Earnest Pistachio Delight.

The award-winning women-owned brand that stands out for its luxurious, fine fragrances with 100% transparent, non-toxic, and worry-free ingredients was launched in March of 2023, by two friends who sought a health-conscious lifestyle after becoming mothers, aims to create fragrances that are both clean and safe. The brand’s commitment to transparency, clean ingredients, and quality has garnered recognition with awards such as the Consider Beyond Conscious Brand Award (2024) and the Global Green Best Ethical Fragrance Award (2023). All Rosy & Earnest formulations are vegan, cruelty-free, and in environmentally friendly, minimalistic packaging

EWG (Environmental Working Group) verification

What also sets Rosy & Earnest apart is their commitment to transparency, epitomized by their EWG (Environmental Working Group) verification. This certification is not easily attained, demanding rigorous scrutiny of ingredients and validation of the brand’s claims by an independent third party. In an industry fraught with unsubstantiated promises, Rosy & Earnest’s dedication to honesty is refreshing and they deliver. Their collaboration with Lab Scent’s award-winning perfumer Nathalie Feisthauer, resulted in fragrances that are not only safe but complex and beautiful. Notably, they are the second Eau de Parfum to receive the EWG-verified certification and the first in Canada.

Rosy & Earnest fragrances are composed by master perfumer Nathalie Feisthauer and Pistachio Delight is a gourmand composition that defies expectations. Through it hints at sweetness, it reveals a savory and transparent complexity that is intriguing and quite addictive. Rosy & Earnest Pistachio Delight opens with a bright burst of bergamot, which elegantly balances the roasted pistachio notes. A sweet gourmand accord, reminiscent of berry meringue, adds a touch of brightness, while pink pepper provides a subtle, fragrant counterpoint. The result is a fragrance that is deliciously nuanced and decadently complex, evoking memories of pistachio ice cream, crème brûlée, and freshly baked cookies. The dry down is warm, ambery and with soft woodsy nuances.

The fragrance industry has recently embraced a variety of nut-based scents—caramelized, green, milky—from walnuts and hazelnuts to peanuts, we savored many. Yet, for me, pistachios remain unparalleled. As I continue to enjoy Pistachio Delight, I find comfort in knowing that it is both a luxurious indulgence and a safe choice for my skin.

With that in mind, I will envelop myself in this olfactory delight, order another pistachio crème brûlée, and surrender to the pleasure with a clear conscience, knowing that what I put on my skin brings no harm—only joy and olfactory indulgence.

Notes: Bergamot, Pink Pepper; Roasted Nuts, Pistachio Mastic (Lentisque); Gourmand Accord, Amber Xtreme, Woodsy Notes, Vanilla Absolute, Musk.

The bottle was kindly gifted to me but opinions are always my own.”
