Founded in 1896 by Charles Arpels and his brother-in-law Alfred van Cleef, French Maison Van Cleef & Arpels created since then the most beautiful jewelry and watches. The pair opened their first boutique at the prestigious Place Vendôme in the heart of Paris in 1906. They gained notoriety for their use of precious stones and their expertise and innovation in stone setting techniques. Since then the beautiful Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry has adorned the bodies of royalty, prominent political figures, socialites and numerous actresses and entertainers.
The Maison’s first foray into fragrance came with First for women in 1978, a beautiful timeless classic floral, aldehyde scent. First remained a popular choice and inspired a lot of flankers over the years. Other notable releases include Feerie, men’s classics Pour Homme and Tsar. and the Collection Extraordinaire, a luxury line whose first first fragrance was launched in 2009.
Van Cleef & Arpels Rose Rouge is a new luxurious perfume for both men and women as part of the French Maison’s famous Collection Extraordinaire.
For its Collection Extraordinaire, the Maison Van Cleef & Arpels has drawn its focus to an exceptional flower, the Rose… The bloom that is also known as the ‘Queen of Flowers’ has been the center of attention for centuries, and an endless source of inspiration for poets and writers, painters and perfumers. The Maison approached its new creation just like those botanists, crafting a Rose from scratch: the Van Cleef & Arpels Rose…
Van Cleef & Arpels Rose Rouge opens to impress with an aromatic bouquet of scented notes that brings up a natural/perfumed sensation on the skin. It is more of an oriental/woody perfume composed by the famous perfumer Julien Rasquinet. It has a nicely balanced opening made of fruity notes along with oriental black currant and pink pepper nicely mixed with floral/woody ingredients of Turkish rose, musk, cocoa and patchouli note.
Van Cleef & Arpels Rose Rouge is synonymous with luxury, very high-quality, and eponymous wearers.
Van Cleef & Arpels Collection Extraordinaire Rose Rouge is available as 75ml. Eau de Parfum.
