Yves Rocher has released Rose Absolue, the second creation to grace his collection of higher-end perfumes called Secrets D'Essences. The new fragrance is a rose-violet floral and was created by Christine Nagel. Nagel is also the composer of Narciso Rodriguez for Her together with Francis Kurkdjian. The perfume follows Voile D'Ambre, a light woody powdery oriental.
It is described as having a "short structure, a precise script" and ingredients for which “money was no object.” According to Osmoz, "A cinnamon opening ensures a spicy allure. At the heart, waves of two rose absolutes, Turkish and Moroccan, treated by molecular distillation to isolate the roses’ fresh, dazzling scents. The voluptuous Moroccan rose absolute, ‘bursting with honeyed waxes’ is a creamy treat. Patchouli combined with “a good bit of tonka bean for mellow warmth”, ensures long-lastingness."
Top note is cinnamon. Heart notes are Turkish, Bulgarian, and Moroccan Roses absolutes. Base notes are patchouli and Tonka.
