Purity, innocence, love and passion - it’s all about roses. Quite common worldwide, this tender flower has a special meaning and symbolism in almost every country and religion. And most of these symbols in one way or another connect Rose with a Woman. From Greek Aphrodite to the Christian Virgin Mary, roses were used to illustrate the Femininity itself. Can it be because of the softness of rose petals, so reminiscent to women's skin? Or shall we blame the opulent scent, sweet and emotive? We don’t know exactly.
What we know for sure, is that despite old romantic aura, modern roses are not for the tender princesses only. They are for everyone: warriors, careerists, poets and weirdos. They are foe Women. That’s why today, anticipating International Women’s Day, we want to introduce you to such a different (and not always traditional) facets of the Queen of Flowers - Rose.
WHICH ROSE ARE YOU?
LE GALION - LA ROSE EDP
The rose by the French House Le Galion is probably the coldest one we know. The freshness of its petals is sleeping under the late March snow. But don’t think about her as the Snow Queen: this ice armors are hiding the wild heart of patchouli and green cypress. Wear it when you want others to keep the distance, but still turning their heads when you are passing by…
MILLER HARRIS - ROSE SILENCE EDP
If a mystery is your alter-ego, Rose Silence should be your perfume. This rose is dark and slightly melancholic but so charming with its pure blossom of blushing ivory petals and the delicate sensation of cashmere. Black currant adds a little piquancy and sweet darkness to this innocent picture. Mysterious and sophisticated. Just like you.
PARLE MOI DE PARFUM - UNE TONNE DE ROSES / 8 EDP
Probably, the rosiest rose in our collection. No, the whole tonne of roses: fresh, young, jammy and intoxicatingly beautiful. Perfect choice if you want to highlight your femininity. Because, why not?
HISTOIRES DE PARFUMS - ROSAM EDP
