Rose Privée, the new fragrance of L’Artisan Parfumeur is a celebration of the iconic May Rose of Provence, dazzling and sophisticated.
This May, L’Artisan Parfumeur launches a new and irresistibly modern Eau de Parfum. Rose Privée is a celebration of the rare and iconic May Rose (Rose de Mai). This Eau de Parfum is the result of a singular collaboration between a master perfumer, Bertrand Duchaufour, and his apprentice, Stéphanie Bakouche.
A floral fragrance of striking beauty, Rose Privée interprets the May Rose in a contemporary way. This extraordinary flower is emblematic of the Grasse hinterland, the epicentre of modern perfumery. This particular rose is fragile and precious, and thus highly prized as it can only be picked when in bloom during the month of May. And so with this fragrance, L’Artisan Parfumeur enters into the very select circle of brands using the true May Rose.
The absolute of May Rose is the central ingredient of Rose Privée, and is married with carnation, magnolia and lilac, perfectly completing its complex facets. Wrapped in an aromatic bouquet of basil and violet leaves, this fragrance unveils a refreshing and dynamic rose which melts into notes of patchouli and hay, evoking the sun of the South of France.
The fragrance itself was created in a unique way with Master perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour accompanying his apprentice, Stéphanie Bakouche, an in-house junior perfumer, based in Grasse, who has been an employee of the brand for a number of years. Bertrand shared his passion, knowledge, and talent with Stéphanie guiding her to find the right proportions, and a memorable ‘hook’ to the fragrance. He shared his savoir-faire, helping her to be objective regarding her creation and to build longevity into her fragrance.
Through this Eau de Parfum, L’Artisan Parfumeur illustrates its unique approach to perfume-making, with a Master training a new generation perfumer, in the great tradition of French craftsmanship. Rose Privée is presented in a luxurious packaging decorated with precious colours.
