FRAGRANCE FAMILY: FLORAL
A mother-daughter collaboration, Dear Rose is a brand with beautiful scents inspired by women, roses and music.
The duo in question is Chantal Roos – renowned in the perfume industry for the ground-breaking launches she masterminded for YSL, Jean Paul Gaultier and Issey Miyake, among many others. Today, she works alongside her daughter, Alexandra Roos, a classically trained musician with four albums under her belt. Together they make scents that sing a beautiful song…
Song for a Queen is a delicate composition of bergamot and jasmine that flows onto a heart of powdery heliotrope, orange blossom and an osmanthus, renowned for its animalic qualities. It’s the base, meanwhile, which delivers the warmth to the scent. Black vanilla, benzoin, cashmere wood and white musk make for a dry-down that’s so comforting, it’s reminiscent of your favourite jumper.
Accompanied by a poem that captures the essence of the fragrance, this is a song we think you’ll have on a loop, after you’ve worn it…
‘Oh you perfume… you proclaim me queen, priviledge just behind my ear, and I, as a sacrilege, all day long I go on singing my song’
‘Song for a Queen’ by Dear Rose
