Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle – D. Ropion – Carnal Flower
Perfumer: Dominique Ropion
Carnal Flower is master perfumer Dominique Ropion´s very personal interpretation of the “olfactory Himalaya”: the tuberose…
With tuberose, nature offers her own take on dramatic olfactive clashes. These pretty flowers exude a mixture of flower shop freshness and carnal opulence. This natural contradiction has fascinated generations of perfumers including Dominique Ropion. He started to compose his interpretation of the mysterious flower from the latest high-tech analysis of its evaporation. To remain as close to nature as possible, he decided to use a mix of the best natural extractions and high-tech ingredients. No other fragrance features so much natural Tuberose Absolute. Finally, to generate a link between this flower’s scent and the wearer’s skin he exaggerated some aspects already existing in the scent of natural tuberose, such as coconut and salicylates, and added a trace of musk.
18 months were necessary to find the perfect balance.
