In the creation of l'Homme À la rose Eau de Parfum for men, Francis Kurkdjian orchestrates a captivating reinterpretation of the classic rose, infusing it with distinctly masculine overtones. From the very first encounter, this fragrance is a symphony of olfactory elements that redefine the boundaries of traditional scents, inviting the modern man to embrace the alluring power of the rose. The journey begins with an immediate burst of intensely fresh green notes, where the zesty essence of grapefruit intertwines seamlessly with the delicate yet robust fragrance of Damascena rose sourced from the scenic landscapes of Bulgaria. This harmonious union creates a natural and vital force, capturing the essence of life in every drop of the perfume. As the fragrance evolves, the heart notes unfold with a delicate dance between rosy and woody accords. The rose, now transformed with a masculine touch, takes center stage alongside woody elements that add depth and character to the composition. This phase of the fragrance encapsulates a dynamic and balanced interplay, symbolizing the duality of strength and elegance that defines today's modern man. The journey reaches its crescendo with the gradual reinforcement of amber woody facets, leaving an indelible and sensual trail. The warm, ambery notes infuse the fragrance with a timeless allure, creating an aura that lingers on the skin and captivates the senses. It's a signature trail, a distinctive mark that sets the wearer apart with sophistication and charm. In presenting l'Homme À la rose Eau de Parfum, Francis Kurkdjian offers today's man a refreshing and light olfactory experience, challenging traditional norms and allowing the power of the rose to become a statement of masculinity. It's an embodiment of confidence and modernity, providing a unique opportunity for men to embrace and celebrate the timeless allure of this iconic floral note in a way that is both fresh and empowering. With each spray, this fragrance becomes a testament to the evolving landscape of contemporary masculinity, proving that the power to wear a rose is a distinctive and captivating choice. Grapefruit The real name of the variety that floods market stalls with sunshine is the pomelo. Botanists prefer to talk about Citrus x paradisi. As with other citrus fruits, its oil is extracted by cold expression of the rind. Its scent differs from the orange by a slightly green bitterness. In a perfume, it conveys a similar very fresh, fruity, juicy sensation, with tart and slightly sulphurous undertones. With its high volatility, it fuses and adds vibrancy to any composition. Clary Sage Native to southern Europe and western Asia, this herb has been known since the dawn of time and was used by the Romans to cure many ailments. Hence its name, derived from the Latin salvare - to heal. Among the multitude of varieties, the sage used in perfumery is Salvia sclarea. Francis Kurkdjian gets his supplies from the Drôme region, an important producer of excellent qualities known as "pays". Obtained by distillation, the oil is complex and multi-faceted: fresh, zesty, green, but also floral, similar to lavender, with camphorated nuances. This heart note is also slightly warm amber. Centifolia Rose Also called the May rose - because that is the month of its flowering - the Centifolia rose Pays blooms in Grasse, in the south of France. It is the other variety used in perfumery, along with the Damascena rose. Its name, "one hundred leaves" in Latin, is explained by its numerous overlapping petals. Particularly delicate, it flowers only once a year which explains its rarity and its high cost. The roses are picked by hand, early in the morning. Too delicate to be distilled, the harvested rosa Centifolia blooms are extracted with volatile solvents to obtain an absolute. This rose absolute is used in the heart and base notes of a perfume. Its generous and complex rose floral notes stand out by their beautiful petal-like effect and honeyed facet. Amber woods While there is a multitude of amber woods, their common denominator is the strength they bring to a fragrance. The range of possible tonalities is as vast as with musks. Some of them replace the animal effects once used, namely ambergris, a sperm whale excreta. Each major supplier of raw materials offers its own amber wood developed by synthesis. They are called Ambroxan, Ambrocenide, Cetalox or Cashmeran. Francis Kurkdjian's amber wood accord combines these synthetic notes with natural ingredients such as patchouli, sandalwood, cedar and vetiver. It contains multiple facets, powerful, dry, enveloping and rising. Its ingredients amplify the scent's sillage and hold. Damascena Rose In perfumery, only two varieties of rose are used for their fragrant properties: rosa damascena and rosa centifolia. The Damascena rose or Damask rose's appeal lies in its highly distinctive honeyed accents and slightly spicy scent. Originally from Persia, this very old variety is the most used in perfumery. It is now cultivated in Bulgaria, Turkey or Iran. Different perfumed products, such as rose water, rose oil and rose absolute, are obtained by using various methods of extraction, each with their distinctive olfactory characteristics. Rose oil is obtained by steam distillation. The Bulgarian rose has fruity facets with hints of pear, lychee and raspberry.
