The embodiment of the confidential nature of the Centifolia Rose (also known as the May or cabbage rose), ROSE MILLESIMÉE is an olfactory metaphor for a moment frozen in time, the reflection of a story, a region and a tradition of craftsmanship. In homage to the Centifolia Rose, this absolute hangs back yet asserts its exceptional character. In Vanina Muracciole’s interpretation of the Rose Centifolia, attention to detail meets a quest for the sublime.
“ For years now, I’ve wanted to reproduce the Centifolia rose without artifice, without a dominant synthetic environment that would make the note consensual. It was about conserving the flower’s natural properties and suggesting comfort.”
To the Grasse region’s native blossom, Vanina Muracciole has added a dash of spices, candied apples, essence of Bulgarian rose and white musc to create a “powerful and carnal soliflore.”
The fruit of nature’s whims and unrivaled, nuanced soil, it tinges each vintage with its signature and patina.
