Frederic Malle Rose & Cuir was created by Jean-Claude Ellena and launched in Fall 2019. This fragrance is meant to interpret rose in a very modern way - to control the sensuality of the rose with the other leather. A rose that is and isn't.
Notes of rose, pepper, geranium bourbon, cassis, vetiver, cedar, leather make up this EDP, eau de parfum.
Reviews of Frederic Malle Rose et Cuir
From Colognoisseur - "I have recently been reminded the soul of modern perfumery is not to slavishly replicate nature. Instead it is meant to interpret nature using scent. Rose & Cuir lives up to this as there is no rose and there is no leather. What replaces them is geranium and isobutyl quinoline. M. Ellena uses them to create a bitter green facsimile of the titular notes."
From A Bottled Rose - "A fragrance of this quality that is so against the tide might not have existed without the full artistic freedom that Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle affords perfumers."
From Australian Perfume Junkies - "This is an adult perfume. It is erotic, and fiercely feminine, and elegance pure. Bitchy with class."
