Le Galion created La Rose, dedicating it to all women. Paul Vacher smelled over 70 species of rose to select the bloom used in this composition. Elegant and subtle, Le Galion dedicatedly reinterprets La Rose from the original formula.
Our modern La Rose is no longer a soliflore, but it still expresses the solitary, unique power of a single, perfect rose. Sensual and refreshing, accented by subtle aquatic elements, this bloom smells as if it was hand picked by your beloved. Bergamot shines down, a friendly glint of sunlight enlivening the dense coil of rose’s petals. Violet leaf approximates the piquant tang of rainwater on wild flowers. Rose is a plummy, profound flower that leaves an irrefutably romantic impression on skin. Ylang ylang is a tangy, sumptuous texture that both leavens and grounds ylang ylang. Water peach is cruciferous and sweet, a luminous texture that contributes bounce to La Rose up. Royal lily is clean and pure, a celestial quality that lifts La Rose up, allowing its heady waft to diffuse appropriately. Cedar is a shift back to a richer, red texture, its dulcet smolder reinforcing the fire of rose. Patchouli melds a green smoke with cedar’s red, while vanilla and musk weave all elements together, into a bewitching trail. Delectable yet seriously beautiful, La Rose is nouveau classic.
