In the Christian tradition, saints are said to exude ineffable perfumes. The Virgin Mary is most often associated with the scent of roses as a sign indicative of her mysterious and enveloping presence...
Mike Rabbanian, the co-founder of the LVDG Group - short for La Virgen de Guadalupe - has decided to give a more literal illustration of that mystical phenomenon by creating a scent of rose bottled in a flacon representing the image of the Virgen de Guadalupe.
He explained that he was able "to register her image with respect to a fragrance," which sounds like a veritable coup. It sounds even bigger than licensing her erstwhile follower Madonna. At the same time, the perfume product looks so much like a religious souvenir that the fragrance it contains better be more than rosewater to qualify as full-fledged perfume creation.
The question now remains, what kind of a rose perfume befits the Virgin Mary if it's anything else than the natural scent of roses?
