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.
This creation reinvents the rose. In this woody floral amber fragrance, the queen of flowers drops her mask to reveal a fiery and powerful facet! The idea of our perfumer Jean JACQUES was to combine the intense, leathery scent of a natural coffee extract obtained by CO2 extraction, with the delicate floral scent of an essence of Turkish rose.
Our rose, highlighted by a hint of cardamom, invites itself into a world of contrast; dark and opulent. The coffee extract, accompanied by a leather accord, birch wood and styrax, sees its smoky notes exacerbated to perfection. In the trail, the essences of patchouli and vetiver darken the composition and give it a deep woody anchor.
A trail of light and shade.
Rose, the ultimate symbol of femininity, often comes off as a gentle flower, maybe even cloying. He couldn’t resist – our perfumer, Jean JACQUES, loves to put a spin on clichés. As soon as he joined CARON, he breathed an air of modernity into our favourite flower. The first fragrance he devoted to was Rose Ivoire, which showcased every nuance of white : it needed a dark alter ego, in shades of black. At CARON, we love to create opposing fragrance duos. And then we had it: our icon in the first role of a dark amber rock-star scent. The fragrance is full of contrast, in the style of our most emblematic creations. Neither masculine nor feminine (actually, both at the same time), Rose Ébène beautifully proves that the queen of flowers has something to gain from being shaken up.
DID YOU KNOW?
Supercritical CO2 extraction may have a rather barbaric name, but we love it twice as much. First, because the process is carried out at room temperature, with no need to heat the raw material. This ensure the extracts are remarkably close to nature. And this cutting-edge technique also presents a major ecological advantage: it generates no greenhouse gases or pollutants.
