Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle - D. Ropion - Portrait of a Lady - Body and Hair Oil
Perfumer: Dominique Ropion
An infinitely seductive classic - bursting with a luscious concentration of Turkish rose, sensually linked by blackcurrant and rasberry, and mystified by amber - is unleashed in a select blend of oils: apricot kernel, evening primrose, argan, almond and sunflower seed. Warmed in the palm of your hand, a few drops are enough to caress your body, instantly softening and enhancing the skin. Run through your hair, each strand is given renewed brilliance. Portrait of a Lady Hair and Body Oil is a new dimension in beauty, for a living, breathing Scheherazade - bold yet controlled, sensual yet strong.
Portrait of a Lady is a new breed of oriental rose, a baroque perfume. It is based on an accord of benzoin, cinnamon, sandalwood and, above all patchouli, musk and frankincense. It takes off with an excessive dosage of the best Turkish rose essence that Dominique Ropion linked to the rest of the formula, thanks to a red berries and spice accord.
After hundreds of trials needed to balance such an excessive formula (Portrait of a Lady is undoubtedly the perfume containing the strongest dosage of rose essence and patchouli heart), a rare symphonic perfume appeared: a new oriental rose, a sensuous beauty that attracts people like a magnet, a modern classic: Portrait of a Lady.
