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. This head-turning fragrance has enormous sillage and is very long lasting.

Ted Lapidus is the maker of this fragrance. He is a Parisian designer that launched his own brand in 1951 after completing an apprenticeship with Christian Dior. While he originally focused his label on fashion, he expanded into accessories and fragrances in the 1970s. He launched his first fragrance under his name in 1970 in collaboration with L’Oreal. 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. We do not sell knockoffs or imitations.

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

I love it!!!

This is a classic. However my last order doesn't smell the same nor last longer which is a disappointment and I hope that you are not starting to mix your products with knock offs. I already wait too long at least 3 weeks to receive my orders and I don't have the patience to be sending items back.

One of my old time favourites

I adore Rumba having bought it regularly when visiting France. I was introduced to it by a friend and it very quickly became my signature perfume for work. I was a community nursing sister and and my patients would also comment on the wonderful aroma coming into their homes. Perfumes can be sickly if you are unwell but this was always welcomed because of its oriental waft. I was so pleased to see I could still get this without leaving the comfort of my armchair, without import taxes and at a fantastic price.

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

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.

I would not buy this again.

This perfume is too strong for my taste. Its scent lingers in the air after you've left the room. Some scents might leave a favorable impression, but not this one - not for me, at any rate. However, one scent by Ted Lapidus I do like is "Creation". This scent is strong too, but is more "me".

No, I would not recommend to a friend.

Interesting, but not too classy

Definitely an interesting big fume, but you have to be careful because it may be perceived as slightly vulgar and/or obnoxious. Takes some getting used to. Does not smell too expensive either, because of the ingredients, but not as cheap as most overpriced recent perfumes, if you will...

Bottom Line

No, I would not recommend to a friend.
