Van Cleef & Arpels - Collection Extraordinaire - Rose Rouge
With ROSE ROUGE, Van Cleef & Arpels reinterprets the queen of flowers and at the same time opens a new chapter of olfactory expressiveness.
Perfumer Julien Rasquinet created his rose composition on the basis of two particularly luxurious rose scent chords, distinguished by their extraordinary quality: he chose intense, sensuously fruity Turkish rose essence and Rose Essential™ - a blend of the finest rose essences. These two rose chords alone bring us close to the heart of the rose and remind us of the velvety tender feeling when its fresh petals caress the skin.
"I wanted to preserve the noble character of these extremely valuable ingredients, but at the same time interpret them in a new and modern way. So I combined the bouquet with proud, very confident wood nuances and an unexpected hint of real dark cocoa." - Julien Rasquinet
The top note leads from a distinctly frosty hint of Pink Pepper to the heart note with those gorgeous Turkish roses and the incomparable Rose Essential™ chord. The Absolute of black current from Burgundy gives the composition an irresistible, refined sweet-sour aroma. Vetiver and patchouli intensify the noble aura of the roses and enhance their majestic elegance. In the finale, the nuances of the dark cocoa and patchouli melt on the skin before gently interweaving with the musk.
