The classic symbol of love and devotion is updated in Rose Noir. A traditional olfactory rose, the Damascena, is empowered and modern. Rose Noir is decadent, dark and refreshingly dirty.
Cardamom and freesia initially lend this rose piquant levity, while grapefruit and red berries polish this damascene rose to a hypnotizing shine, until resembling a large ruby or the eyes of a panther glinting in the night. The lush florals at the heart of Rose Noir enable rose to wallow, with wild abandon, in romance. A Watteau-like depiction of flirtation and lust, heady jasmine, ebullient lily of the valley, bittersweet raspberry and a tease of violet enable rose to recline into the splendor of big emotions. Beneath the seamless surface and emotional heart of Rose Noir lies its soul; rich, intense, and animalic in character. Labdanum is a smoldering mirror of rose, a shadowy apparition that reflect rose’s thorns as much as it’s picture perfect petals. Moss, musk and patchouli illustrate the unctuous, earthy setting from which Rose Noir springs. Rose Noir is a terribly captivating fairy tale.
