This is a rose with undulating hips and every sway of her elegant walk will chip away at your will to resist and not give in to her sweet sensuality. But why would you? She’s as beautiful as they come, all deep pink petals, glistening leaves, and more than anything, that honeyed, creamy smell of her rosy heart.
“La Rose” is perfumer Thomas Fontaine’s reinterpretation of the original Paul Vacher composition, who was particularly interested in the creation of soliflores. Of course no soliflore is a true single note fragrance, as many ingredients are used to create the multifaceted scent of a natural flower, and is often very difficult to capture the various nuances with enough finesse for a really tridimensional experience. In the case of “La Rose”, not only the delicate balance is achieved but also a sense of something novel and unexpected, as the smell is both fresh and voluptuous. The violet leaf gives it a green, crunchy feel which serves as an excellent counterpoint to the almost tropical, fruit tinged sweetness of the middle chords.
It is a very refined, sultry rose that captures with great subtlety the ultra feminine mood of the fifties, the decade in which the fragrance was initially released, as a tribute to all women. It is still delightful in the 21st century.
‘Les Parfums Le Galion appartiennent à la même famille de fragrances passionnées, à la fois ardentes et subtiles, qui créent un sillage d’admiration derrière celles et ceux qui savent les porter.’
L’Officiel de la Mode, 1956
The name of this beautiful brand, inspired by majestic seafaring vessels with their vast square sterns, evoked thoughts of freedom and escape. Some of the beautiful fragrances associated with the brand have stayed in our memories: Sortilège, Brumes, Snob … But this once glorious perfume house, Le Galion, has faded from our memory and consigned to the past.
Now, more than 30 years after closing its doors, like the phoenix, Le Galion Perfume House is reborn from the ashes. Back are the original, exceptional, fiery and subtle fragrances – rare luxury and refined creations.
