If there is a flower that is synonymous with the love and innocence, then there can be no other that symbolizes it better than the perennial Rose. So in view of the upcoming Valentine’s Day around the corner, I’m celebrating this historically rich flower in its many incarnations by sharing some of my favourite Rose-themed beauty picks!
Wear your heart on your sleeve
… with the A la Rose by Maison Francis Kurkdjian, a whimisical, luscious medley of duo rose varieties: 250 Centifolia roses from Grasse (May Rose) create a rich floral base note with sweet honeyed accents. Another 150 Damascena roses from Bulgaria in the form of an essential oil, create an unforgettable top note, topped off with the sparkling nuances of Calabria bergamot and Orange. At the heart notes, a blend of violet and magnolia blossom accords adds fullness to the woody cedar and musk accord base notes. If Love could be bottled, it would smell something like this.
A la Rose by Maison Francis Kurkdjian (70ml) is available at Escentials Paragon.
