The Roses et Reines collection uses rose extract derived through enfleurage, a traditional process innovated by the L’Occitane research team. The freshest of rose petals are steeped in oil, allowing it to become saturated with the natural fragrance of the rose, resulting in a fruitier scent.
Roses et Reines Eau de Toilette is a fresh and velvety fragrance, a floral tale that celebrates the flower of queens. The muses that inspired this fragrance, the four daughters of the Count of Forcalquier, all cherished roses: the flowers that were said to have made them queens.
The fragrance opens with the citrus freshness of bergamot and blackcurrant leaves. Intense heart notes reveal the floral, silky encounter of four varieties of roses (from Bulgaria, Turkey, Grasse and Morocco) and the fruity notes of the precious rose extract, obtained by enfleurage and coloured by raspberry and blackberry. This harmony is prolonged by a woody base of white cedar which mingles with the softness of heliotrope and musk.
