Plunging into the formula of his predecessor, our perfumer Jean JACQUES fell in love with the special alchemy between mandarin and gardenia. And it was his idea to give them a starring role in an irresistible floral fragrance! Overdosed at 8% of the formula, Italian mandarin essence gushes forth in every direction with juicy, tangy notes:A deliciously tart blackcurrant bud absolute sourced from France supports these notes, softened slightly by the apricot-like effects of carrot essence. Endlessly lively and luminous, the notes that greet you last on the skin in a gentle, rich bouquet of opulence. It’s a great way to add pizazz to the heady scent of gardenia, that white flower with sensual and divinely solar notes. What a burst of radiance! This scent proves it: it light, but it gets noticed!
This Eau de Rocaille is a radiant, delectably fresh scent!
La Collection Merveilleuse wears its name well. Combining the gems of our heritage with very contemporary creations, every last detail illustrates the overwhelming creativity, daring spirit, and generosity of our House. Refillable, stackable and customizable, the O bottle is our emblem. Free to be different, La Collection Merveilleuse is the most beautiful expression of French Haute Parfumerie by CARON.
The fragrance is guided by one goal: to smell fresh! Keep this in mind: it isn’t in the fleeting style of a traditional eau that evaporates within a few hours. With Eau de Rocaille, Jean JACQUES has been able to steer clear of the clichés of the genre by making it generous, powerful, and tenacious. That’s quite an accomplishment!
DID YOU KNOW?
Before arriving in Europe in the early nineteenth century, mandarin had long been a typically Asian fruit. Chinese, to be precise! It is said to be named for its colour, which evokes the silk robes of the mandarins.
