Description

Description

For the first time in perfumery, Jean Jacques offers a title role to the mahogany flower, taking the form of a sumptuous soliflore fragrance. He explores its both facets by combining a white flowers bouquet with the juicy acidity of a star fruit.

To transcribe the rich and exuberant white flower facet, Jean Jacques has incorporated exceptionally powerful ingredients. Two jasmine absolutes, a fleshy and sensual “open flower”, and a sambac with petal-like and fruity accents, blossoming alongside a highly rare ylang ylang absolute.

To convey the green and flavourful facet of the flower, he refreshes this white floral cocktail with a burst of exotic and invigorating notes. The crisp freshness of star fruit and juicy watermelon are blended with essence of magnolia flower. This exotic, just-ripe fruity sensation is enriched by tangy notes of blackcurrant and a green mango accord.

Story

Story

Belle de Niassa testifies to the power of olfactory memory through the story of a quest to northern Mozambique, in a stunning natural setting, to find and recreate the bewitching scent of the mahogany flower.

In the heart of the Niassa plains, the bush stretches endlessly over the arid land. As far as the eye can see, areas of open savannah alternate with shrubby vegetation. The dry season is at its peak. In the afternoon light, the sun animates the grasses and the foliage of the shrubs with golden reflections. Suddenly, an unexpected odor bursts forth. The dry air is charged with an opulent perfume of white flowers, powerful, addictive, captivating. This scent is that of the mahogany flower.

Did you know ?
Unpredictable, the mahogany flower’s blossom announces the arrival of the rain. Invisible at first sight, ephemeral, it reserves its perfume to a few privileged people who are lucky enough to catch it between October and November, at the very moment when it blooms.

The creative duo

The creative duo

Ariane de ROTHSCHILD has retained a particular attachment to Africa and its fabulous fragrances after spending her childhood travelling through several continents. They have always nurtured and inspired her.

Belle de Niassa translates an enchanting olfactory emotion experienced every year when the mahogany flower blossoms in the Niassa province of northern Mozambique. In 2019 she invited Jean Jacques, CARON’s in-House perfumer, to share this magical moment with him and let him discover this opulent fragrance. To breath in this unique scent in perfumery. To capture it. To retain it. To transcribe it. To then recreate it, preserve it forever. And relive, intact, this emotion. This was Jean Jacques’ mission.

Belle de Niassa testifies to the audacity of the House and reflects the curiosity and openness to the world of its creative duo.

Simply lovely

I wear a fragrance every day and this quickly became one of my favorites, along with Caron’s Fleur de Rocaille. They are both lovely. They are not easy to find in the US, so had it imported.

Étonnamment : j'aime

Je me sens existante, vivante, accueillie et réconciliée avec des parfums boisé, végétaux, épicé, chypré ((ex : tabac noir ....wouah!). Étonnamment, alors que je n'aime pas les parfums plus floraux, j'ai beaucoup apprécié Belle de Niassa, sans savoir pourquoi !!
