Eau Rose pays tribute to the queen of flowers, the rose. Forever immortalised by Ronsard's famous poem "Mignonne, allons voir si la rose...", it was only a matter of time before diptyque decided to showcase the rose.
The top note, a sharp, fresh surge of bergamot and blackcurrant, gives the rose a lively, even piquant, freshness. A flower covered in early morning dew, with a fruity note of lychee which further accentuates the petal sensation. The middle notes contain a majestic rose, both discreet and powerful, unveiling all its force through a subtle combination of two roses. But not any roses: the Centifolia rose (or Rose de Mai) and the Damask rose. Here, they are infused, a very traditional method which involves macerating the flowers in alcohol. This gives a more diffuse effect, enveloping the note and making it rounder and more enhanced. The base notes evoke a rose warmed by the sun, almost at dusk, when its floral richness exudes sensual, balmy, more intense tones. To make it more fleshy, carnal and sensual, it is carried here by the round, woody imprint of white musk, the leathery, mossy, woody scent of cedar, and embellished by a touch of sweet, delicious honey.
