Les Parfums de Rosine are continuing their focused exploration of the rose note with a limited-edition this summer called Une Rose au Bord de la Mer (76€) (A Rose by the Sea Shore.)
This marine-rose composition is inspired by the hedonistic picture of a summer spent at the beach. The breeze is lightly blowing, the sea is blue as can be and dotted with white. A white rose in a garden above the coast is rocked to and fro by the breeze; its petals are lightly covered by sand, dust and sea-air film...
The perfume opens on fresh notes of Neroli, Italian Bergamot, Rose Oil, Bitter Orange, and Mandarin. The heart rests on Immortelle absolute, rose absolute, white jasmine. The base notes are Cistus oil, amber, ambrette seed, white musk.
The concentration of the fragrance is that of a lighter Eau Fraîche and contains less alcohol than is usual.
Une Rose au Bord de la Mer is a particularly exclusive launch and will be available only in 200 copies from May 2010.
A 100 ml bottle is priced at 76€
A recent release by Les Parfums de Rosine is Secrets de Rose, a dark-rose composition.
