The Queen of flowers, the rose, is an international symbol of love, femininity and beauty.
In Greek mythology, Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love is believed to have created the rose from her tears and the blood of her lover, Adonis. The stunning beauty and rich perfume of the rose evokes strong emotions and nothing says ‘I love you’ quite like a bunch of these crimson beauties.
In the fragrance world, this emotionally charged flower is as versatile as it is hypnotically fragrant. Just as the rose comes in a wide spectrum of colours, from deep burgundy to baby pink, in a fragrance, rose can be anything from girly to glamorous. Rose has the ability to effortlessly change the whole feel of a fragrance, depending on what it is paired with.
When rose is at the heart of a Floral Oriental fragrance, such as Paris by Yves Saint Laurent, it gives a rich and classic aroma. Rose does not always have to feel opulent and traditional, in fragrances such as L’Eau D’Issey Florale by Japanese designer, Issey Miyake, the rose note is paired with Crisp Citrus caresses and is refreshing in its lightness.
Rose is a note that can be enjoyed by women of all ages. The sparkling and contemporary chic fragrance, Parisienne by Yves Saint Laurent gives a modern twist on this traditional note, making the fragrance twinkle with stylish, vintage charm. This rose fragrance is accentuated by whispers of floral notes that have a crisp edge, making Parisienne appeal to young, fashionable women.
Rose is one of the most versatile fragrance notes. From flirty to classy, rose can suit your every mood, while all the time retaining its stunning feminine beauty.
