Rose Nacrée du Désert by Guerlain showcases a magnificent Persian Rose specially selected by Thierry Wasser. Its characteristic essence gives a delicate, clever feel to this composition in which oud wood accord with smoky and amber accents finds full expression. Subtle and voluptuous, it represents a continent where beauty is tangible from the first promise of dawn.
The Déserts d’Orient fragrances are housed in simple, streamlined bottles gorgeously illuminated by a shower of gold, like a symbol of riches: a sign of belonging to a world in which this precious material has always been given pride of place.
Persian rose, grown in Iran, was used in this fragrance, marking its debut in perfumery. This very woody saffron-like rose melds with an oud wood accord, composed of patchouli, gaiac wood and a dry amber note, created by Thierry Wasser.
Ideal for men and women alike.
The composition of this fragrance is Woody Floral, Rare, reassuring, rich. Top notes are saffron note, Persian rose, patchouli. in the Heart consist of cardamom, curcuma, cedar wood, oud accord.while myrrh, benzoin wraps up the base.
Over time spicy notes develop: saffron, myrrh and oud – but on my skin all these, which often tend to push themselves into the foreground – especially the oud – remain remarkably restrained. This leaves the rose proudly in the centre of attention, like the solo violin in a violin concerto, and the other notes constitute the orchestra.
I get moderate sillage, very good projection and four hours of longevity on my skin.
A well-made rose scent beautiful in spring, bright, not heavy or rich and more in the elegant side.
