Introducing Maison Francis Kurkdjian À La Rose

 

A fragrance inspired by Marie Antoinette’s love of roses and a portrait of the infamous doomed Queen entitled A La Rose. Love captured in a bottle infused with 250 precious roses from Grasse.

“This is my tribute to femininity,” says Francis Kurkdjian of his À La Rose Eau de Parfum. This beautiful fragrance is blended with two types of Rose – the Damascena Rose from Bulgaria as a pretty and sensual top note, and the Centifolia Rose from Grasse to give it a deep and musky undertone. Pear and Lychee draw down to heart accords of Violet and Magnolia Blossom, while a Cedarwood base adds a sophisticated finish to this heady scent.

This fragrance is a love letter to femininity and sensuality.

 

WHAT IT IS:
A fresh, true rose scent

NOTES:
Damask rose, bergamot, orange, violet, cedar, musk, and Centifolia rose

WHY WE ADORE IT:
At this point, saying you don’t like rose perfumes is about as original as bragging that you don’t own a television. Anyone who still thinks the classic floral note automatically makes a scent grandma material needs to find a bottle of Kurkdjian’s light, pure creation immediately and start spritzing.

After the bright citrusy notes dissipate (quickly—think seconds, not minutes), you are left with pure flower power: two kinds of rose absolutes that smell as fragrant and pure as an armful of real, sun-warmed garden blooms.

The formula is so light that it fades into just a trace of powdery musk, but that didn’t turn out to be a bad thing—we actually look forward to reapplying after a few hours to get another addictive hit of the rose notes.
