Roger & Gallet recently released a line of Extrait de Colognes in collaboration with expert perfumers. Loyal to the spirit of the house that has produced perfume gems like Jean Marie Farina, Lotus Bleu, Thé Vert and a beautiful selection of the best scented body care products, the new “colognes” are unique, long lasting and formulated with 87% naturally derived ingredients for an intense olfactory experience.
My favorite of the line is Tubéreuse Hédonie . Tuberose is making a big comeback in perfumery and here perfumer Anne Flipo has delicately blended it with the other ingredients to create a soothing and calming effect on the senses.
The notes are: tuberose, bergamot, pink pepper, petigrain, orange blossom, neroli, celery, jasmine, lemon, ylang ylang, elemi, orange
Very true to the Roger & Gallet spirit, the cologne is fresh and sparkling and yet intense and sensual due to the tuberose that shows us it’s delicate side as it’s blended with jasmine and bergamot. Pink pepper adds that extra sparkle while elemi in the base, the depth and warmth necessary to prolong the long lasting effect on the skin.
The duality of freshness/sensuality is a very interesting game expertly played by Anne Flipo that has given us a rich, mysterious and yet very fresh take on tuberose.
All the Extrait de Colognes are a must try for me as you’ll definitely find one you love!
