Rumba Perfume by Ted Lapidus, Rumba is an oriental floral fragrance for women that was launched in 1989. It opens with top notes of plum, bergamot, peach, raspberry, orange blossom, basil, and mirabelle. Its middle notes consist of honey, tuberose, jasmine, carnation, heliotrope, gardenia, magnolia, lily of the valley, orchid, marigold, and rose. Its base contains notes of vanilla, ambergris, leather, tonka bean, patchouli, musk, sandalwood, plum, cedar, styrax, and oakmoss.

His son took over the company in 1989, and the label ended its clothing division in 2000, choosing to focus solely on accessories and fragrances. All products are original, authentic name brands.

Hey, everyone! Rachel here, and today, I'll be reviewing Rumba by Ted Lapidus. This fragrance is great for fall and winter nighttime wear and is dominated by sweet, floral, and balsamic accords. Honey and plum dominate this sweet confection of a scent, but those notes are supported by plenty of others, including but not limited to basil, white florals, rose, leather, oak moss, ambergris, styrax, and bergamot. The scent has enormous staying power, so you really have to try it for yourself. That's all for today. Remember to follow FragranceX on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and subscribe to our YouTube channel for more of this kind of content.

Hot Rumba!

Lots of fruit and florals in the top and heart, but Rumba does not come off as sweet; instead it is passionate and rich. The dance it is named after is hot and sensual and this perfume epitomises it perfectly. It has a sensuality that is for women who are daring, and who want to be noticed. Top

RUMBA PERFUME (Ted Lapidus)

I wanted the "original" RUMBA by Balenciaga ; instead I got something that says on the bottle "TED LAPIDUS" ; don't get me wrong ; [...], - its not exactly the same ; I wanted the packaging to be identical to what I have used in the past ; the smell is NOT exactly the same ; but its nice enough -
...
have given it to my mum and have now re-ordered today what hopefully will be the ABSOLUTE ORIGINAL "RUMBA" BY BALENCIAGA PLEASE THANKS

Not for everybody but nice for me

I don't think I will use it for going out but it is a great perfume for wearing at home for me. I like the bottle too.

Bottom Line

Yes, I would recommend to a friend.

awful

Most awful smell ever... like a cheap perfume... for someone born in 1901 It is going in the bin as I would not even give it away and it will cost me as much as I paid for it to return. A very expensive mistake. We live and learn

Bottom Line

No, I would not recommend to a friend.

Not What I Was Expecting

I read some awesome reviews about Rumba. I did see it is an older scent and most comments looked as if they were from a slight older generation than mine ( I am 36 ). I took a chance and ordered it. I opened it immediately once it arrived! I was so excited to get it! It smelled like an old lady for sure! I was hoping it was just me... so I sprayed it once I got home. My 9 year old son rounded the corner and went running in the opposite direction! He said "it stinks so bad, please don't every spray that stuff again!" So... back in the box it went and it's being shipped back today for a refund.

Bottom Line

No, I would not recommend to a friend.

Very nice scent

I have the gel and lotion, I thought it would be more vanilla but there is a good amount of spice.

Bottom Line

Yes, I would recommend to a friend.

Sultry, rich and exotic fragrance

Have used this fragrance for many years. Generally lasts quite well, even better when layered with matching body lotion and shower gel.

Bottom Line

I would buy this product again and again!

Someone bought me a bottle of Rumba many years ago and I love it to this day. You cant find it anywhere except on FragranceX and I am so thankful. Its Unique and Classy smell is always a conversation starter and as your body warms its Fragrance, it gets even better! Thank you FragranceX for continuing to provide New and Ol' School perfumes at affordable prices. I only buy my from FrangranceX and will continue to do so for many years to come.

Bottom Line

Yes, I would recommend to a friend.
