A daring interpretation of the rose, where the flower reveals itself as urban and mineral
The perfumer Céline Perdriel highlights two exceptional varieties of rose: the Damascena rose from Turkey, with its floral, fruity and spicy notes, and the Centifolia rose from Grasse, with its round, warm and honeyed facets. In ROSE ARDOISE, the perfumer plays on ambiguities, combining femininity and masculinity, transparency and texture, minerality and sensuality. The fragrance opens with fresh, spicy notes of schinus molle and nutmeg that reflect the clear, crystalline vibration of sage. Then, the rose expresses itself entirely before progressively melting into an overdose of ambroxan. A singular composition that affirms its androgynous and contemporary character.
