The bedrock of perfumery, roses are inextricably linked to the fragrances we’ve come to know and love. In fact, rose comprises more than 400 known constituents, with a variety of reconstructions across every price point. Its scent is powerful and rich, with floral and fruity facets of contrast: sweet yet spicy, green yet honeyed. Rose is often described as a feminine note with floral, powdery facets.
The list of perfumes that could be mentioned as being iconic of the rose is quite long: Rose Jacqueminot by Coty, Nahéma by Guerlain, Paris by Yves Saint Laurent, Trésor by Lancôme…, but Chloé, created in 2008, offered a revival to the rose, by proposing a natural, modern and feminine illustration. The rose leans on the peony in the top, drawing the moisture of a morning dew, and on the lychee for a juicy and attractive touch. It holds its freshness and lightness right to the base, where it embraces an ambery and musky cedar.
