A tribute to femininity, À la rose is a declaration of love for all women captured in a fragrance. Queen of flowers, the rose knows no boundaries and has inspired those in the creative arts for centuries. Poets, painters, musicians ... and perfumers alike. All have sought to capture its aura, its magic and its secrets.
A rosy duo in one fragrance: Two varieties of rose have bestowed the radiance and richness of their petals on this Eau de parfum: two hundred and fifty Centifolia roses from Grasse (May Rose) in the form of an absolute produce a very floral base note with sweet honeyed and carnal accents. One hundred and fifty Damascena roses from Bulgaria in the form of an essential oil create a top note with a playful blend of pear and lychee.
À la rose has the crisp tenderness of rose petals, a whimsical free-spirited style and an elegance that radiates femininity.
In the top notes, Damascena rose from Bulgaria, bergamot from Calabria and orange from California offer radiance and a breath of femininity.
In the heart notes, an accord of violet and magnolia blossom brings fullness and generosity.
Finally, a woody cedar and musk accord mingles with Centifolia rose from Grasse to release an airy and carnal sillage.
Olfactive family: floral/woody.
