Notes of roses, pink pepper, vanilla, more roses, incense and tolu balsam. Maison Lancome Parfait de Roses is an eau de parfum, edp.
Lancôme has appointed some of the greatest contemporary perfumers to pay homage to Lancôme's founder, Armand Petitjean. The result is Maison Lancôme, a collection of fragrances that so exquisitely touch upon and carry on Petitjean's dream. This line takes a creative stance: the very French art of blending. Each fragrance is crafted in the same manner that one composes a wine of the most superior grade (grand cru), with a combination of varieties, origins and extracts that are all specially selected according to precise criteria.
Maison Lancome Parfait de Roses Reviews
From EauMG - "Parfait de Roses opens as a jammy, sweet rose that is almost like a rose custard. It reminds me of candied rose petals. It’s like rose petals glimmering in sugar crystals placed on top of a creamy, rich vanilla crème pâtissière. There’s a side of red berries but they vanish rather quickly. It’s not a note listed, but in the heart, I pick up on iris that is starchy and reminiscent of unbaked dough. The rest of the perfume is like a “doughy” rose with a creamy, rich tonka bean which provides an underlying balsamic sweetness. The dry-down is a creamy vanilla (and even more tonka). It’s like this perfume starts as silk and dries down to cashmere."
From Perfume Posse - "In French, parfait means perfect – but it’s also a frozen custard-like dessert made with cream, eggs and sugar, often with a fruit component. Parfait de Rôses has the same creamy softness without being overtly edible – the rose is jammy, the base vanillic rather than sugary, with a hint of fruit compote and a dash of pepper. Reviews on Fragrantica mention the smell of Turkish delight without the intense dusting of sugar; I’d say more like the smell of a rosewater-raspberry macaron sitting on a cashmere pillow."
