Perfumer Jean-Michel Duriez who is the in-house nose for Jean Patou has created an anniversary fragrance for Procter & Gamble Prestige Products' 15th anniversary. P & G acquired Jean Patou in 2001. It is called Coming Up Roses and showcases a central note of Bulgarian Rose. Duriez based his inspiration on the fragrance name borrowed from Stephen Sondheim's song Everything's Coming Up Roses: "Things look swell, things look great, Gonna have the whole world on a plate. Starting here, starting now Honey, everything's coming up roses.".
Other notes include Ambrette oil, pear, white flowers, lily, white musk.
Says Duriez "I think of P&G Prestige Products as the rose and the fragrance ‘Coming Up Roses' as the dew on the petals."
