Rose that smells a little sweet like candy and is also a powdery rose scent. It’s supposed to smell like the candy “Turkish Delight” and it does, but I still can’t get into this. Is it a floral? Is it candy? It was okay but didn’t really excite me a whole bunch. Pretty pink colored water.


Product description from Early Fall 2003 LT (Hard):

If the Sex Bomb is the ballistic you’d take out on a hot date, then the Absolute Delight is the one you’d want to spend the rest of your life with. It may not be quite so bright and flashy – “obvious” as my gran would have put it – but it is gentle, kind, and lovely, the kind of ballistic you’ll never tire of coming home to. We scent it with Turkish rose absolute, the perfume made from fresh rose petals, with balancing geranium, with a touch of relaxing sandalwood and sesnual jasmine and as it looks a little like Turkish delight (the rose scented sweetie dusted with icing sugar*) we thought that Absolute Delight would be a very appropriate name for it.


From the Festive Christmas Issue 2003 LT (Inhale):

Often when we use the words “absolutely delightful,” we mean “quite nice,” really, but occasionally we find something which really deserves the compliment. If we are being strictly literal about it, the Absolute Delight deserves its name because it is scented with Turkish rose absolute, a perfume made from rose petals. However, we can also justify calling it that because it gives you a truly lovely bathing experience. It’s not full of petals or glitter; it merely makes bath time a gorgeously sensual, relaxing treat which makes you feel wonderful.
