Les Nombres d'Or: Rose


Pin It Fancy

Release Date:  2012
Perfumer:  Mona di Orio
Description:  Launched as a salute to Mona di Orio’s life and work as a perfumer, Rose Etoile de Hollande is the culmination of Mona’s study of a special rose that climbed the walls of Maison Sainte Blanche in Cabris, France. And like her other layered and yet legible perfumes, Rose Etoile de Hollande is no ordinary rose: powdery and spicy, with a round, lush white peach note lifted by aldehydes, and sprinkled with clove.  Heart notes of warm cedar, earthy patchouli and a sly leather note adds to the scintillating heart while a hint of powdery heliotrope conspire to create an innocent, yet joyously carnal scent.  This perfume manages to evoke a rose at once regal, joyous and sensual, its progression from top notes to base notes gathering depth and beauty as it progresses.  To put it succinctly, Rose Etoile de Hollande is mesmerizing.

Notes: Bergamot, clove, aldehydes, peach (white), geranium (Egyptian), rose (Bulgarian), rose (Turkish/Ottoman), heliotrope, cedarwood (Atlas), patchouli, amber, balsam (Peru), benzoin (Siam), vanilla (Madagascar)
