Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle - D. Ropion - Portrait of a Lady- Shower Cream
Perfumer: Dominique Ropion
Is it the woman, her skin or her perfume? With this alluring shower cream, Portrait of a Lady reaches new heights. Dominique Ropion's novel interpretation of an oriental fragrance, driven by an overdose of Turkish rose that is woven with the evocative perfume of incense and patchouli, is in full bloom, turning shower and bath time into a splendid ritual where water, cream, scent and skin unite in a living, breathing Scheherazade - bold yet controlled, sensual yet strong, causing every head to turn.
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.
