I have turned into someone who is completely infatuated with gorgeous fragrances lately. I love all of the pretty florals that debut in the Summer and Fall. L’Occitane is about to release their brand new fragrance called Roses et Reines.
“The queen of flowers is an olfactory, evocative muse that inspired L’OCCITANE, perfumer in Provence, to create the captivating tale of a fresh and velvety Eau de Toilette Roses et Reines. This tale goes back to the legend of the Count of Forcalquier and his four daughters, who became queens through love, and through their favorite roses.” – L’Occitane
The fragrance opens with the citrus freshness of bergamot and blackcurrant leaves. Intense heart notes reveal the floral, silky encounter of four varieties of roses (from Bulgaria, Turkey, Grasse and Morocco) and the fruity notes of the precious rose extract, obtained by enfleurage, colored by raspberry and blackberry. This harmony is prolonged by a woody base of white cedar, which mingles with the softness of heliotrope and musk.
Notes: bergamot, blackcurrant leaves, Grasse rose, Bulgarian rose, Moroccan rose, Turkish rose, Haute-Provence rose, raspberry.
I, for one, love the scent of roses. Roses et Reines really showcases the beauty of that fragrance without SCREAMING ROSES. I think it could be the touch of raspberry and bergamot that changes it up in that perfectly citrusy way.
The fragrance Roses et Reines screams “old glamour” to me. I mean old in the best sense of the word. Think Audrey Hepburn or Liz Taylor. This fragrance is how I imagine them to be scented. Simple. Classic. Gorgeous. This scent will come in the following products:
