FRAGRANCE FAMILY: FLORIENTAL
It was clear in our minds when we set about curating a fabulous new edit of fragrant gems to celebrate niche and independent perfumery that a fragrance from his signature collection by Pierre Bourdon had to be on our wishlist…
And following the wonderful comments we received about the beautiful La Fin d’un Été in our Hidden Treasures Perfume Discovery Box (see here), we bring you the ‘Secret Scentsation’ that is La Dame en Rose. (Bourdon clearly has a poet’s heart when it comes to naming his beautiful collection of fragrances.)
This thoroughly feminine perfume was created for independent, strong and elegant women, inspired by notes of pink hue – and by a figure in the novel of the French poet Marcel Proust, which give this fragrance its name.
Red fruits offer a fruity introduction, married beautifully with rose at the heart and musky sandalwood at the base.
One for romantics – never mind literary heroines – everywhere…
