A velvet rose, persistent and unique, dedicated to one of the leading artist of Dadaism: a homage to Marcel Duchamp and to his “double” Rrose Selavy. With Rrose Selavy, Maria Candida interprets the “double” of Marcel Duchamp, and his jeux des mots Rrose Selavy which sounds in French like “eros, c’est la vie”, or “arroser la vie”, to make a toast to life.

Maria Candida pays tribute to Duchamp, making a toast to life with her velvety, soft, fresh, just harvested Rrose Selavy. The name Selavy emerged in 1921 in a series of photographs by Man Ray of Duchamp dressed as a woman. Through the 1920s, Man Ray and Duchamp collaborated on more photos of Selavy. Duchamp later used the name as the byline on written material and signed several creations with it.

  1. Nikolai

    An enormous, multifaceted, non-linear rose. It starts out with a punch of fresh red rose which quickly softens into fresh, more pink rose petals, and develops strong herbal facets. For a few hours it is like those rose petals have been drizzled with a blend of herbal teas, which is at once elegant and comforting. Then the rose becomes very plush, a little powdery, but continues to develop with different nuances emerging at different moments. Hints of lipstick rose, rose candy, rose leaf, bergamot rose. In late drydown, it seems to settle on a green stemmed rose, a bit spicy.

    There is a definite play between the more masculine/unisex herbal rose and the distinctly feminine powdery rose, both intriguing and perfect for the inspiration. Sillage is extraordinary and longevity is very good.
