I totally fell in love with this balm but I so wanted to hate it because of the extreme price tag. However, the brume de rose is super luxurious, delivers on quality you expect from a luxury lip balm, and also offers flattering color. I personally have the coral stellar color and it's sheer yet feminine on. There is a very strong scent of rose if fragrance isn't your thing, it'll probably bother you. (fyi-the scent does go away and doesn't have the gross perfume or floral taste!) If you're in the mood to splurge on an every day item you'll use up- this is a good one!
