Rochas is launching a new summery interpretation of one of the house's classics, its perennial agrestic opus, Eau de Rochas (1948 / 1970), called Eau de Rochas Escapade Tropicale, which takes inspiration this time from the luxuriating nature of the tropics and the tradition of fantasy it evokes for the imagination...
Perfumer Michel Almairac of Robertet signs the new composition, which he has built around main ideas of freshness, over-the-top vegetation and "delicate fruits." The result is said to be "colorful, contrasted, and rich in development twists."
The eau de toilette opens on top notes of lemon and cassis seguing into a heart of water fruits, juicy mango and cedarwood, the latter reportedly for an enveloping aura effect. The base rests on musks, Ambroxan and less expected there, a note of raspberry.
SRP: 74€ for 100 ml of EDT.
