Portrait of a Lady is a new breed of oriental rose, a baroque perfume. It is based on an accord of benzoin, cinnamon, sandalwood and, above all patchouli, musk and frankincense. It takes off with an excessive dosage of the best Turkish rose essence that Dominique Ropion linked to the rest of the formula, thanks to a red berries and spice accord.
After hundreds of trials needed to balance such an excessive formula (Portrait of a Lady is undoubtedly the perfume containing the strongest dosage of rose essence and patchouli heart), a rare symphonic perfume appeared: a new oriental rose, a sensuous beauty that attracts people like a magnet, a modern classic: Portrait of a Lady.
Whether the woman or her perfume, we are carried away in her wake. So much so that we went in search of other ways to bring the fragrance to life, for a blossom that endures forever.
First with Portrait of a Lady shower milk, an essential addition that suggests the perfume’s very vibration exists both to languish and surprise. It exudes a sensual embrace – a feeling of being cleansed from the inside out and deeply hydrated by soft safflower and organic olive. Shower and bath time are thus transformed into a splendid ritual where water, scent and skin unite in the perfect woman.
Once out of the water, it’s time for Portrait of a Lady hair and body oil. Here, the scent’s sex appeal and allure blend and blossom in a one-of-a-kind alchemy of organic oils. Warmed in the palm of your hand, a few drops are enough to caress the body, instantly softening, hydrating and enhancing the skin. Run through your hair, each strand is given renewed brilliance.
Finally, the pleasure is taken to new heights with Portrait of a Lady body butter. Applied to the legs, up the hips and over the stomach, chest, arms and neck, it is a sumptuous cream that nourishes the body with voluptuousness, radiance and unparalleled softness.
Cleaned and hydrated by its shower milk, illuminated by its gentle, invigorating oil, then nourished by its body butter, Portrait of a Lady transports you into bliss. Is it her skin? Her perfume? The brilliance of her hair or the sparkle in her eyes?
With Portrait of a Lady every sense is heightened, for a living, breathing Scheherazade – bold yet controlled, sensual yet strong, cloaked in a velvet evening gown of unparalleled crimson luxury, causing every head to turn.
