Description

RETRO - Coty La Rose Jacqueminot EDT (from The Chateau Collection) 

Year Introduced:  1986 - Feminine

Notes:   Rose, honey, cardamom, clove, musk and amber

 

In 1986, Coty released three scents in a set called The Chateau Collection. This collection of old favorites was comprised up of La Rose Jacqueminot, Chypre and Muse which was rechristened as Les Muses.

La Rose Jacqueminot was discontinued for many years before being reformulated and relaunched in 1987.

A wonderful advertisement packed inside the box reads:

The Chateau Collection - Now Every Woman Can Have a French Accent! $5.00 for all three, regularly $11.25. La Rose Jacqueminot, Chypre and Les Muses. It's so easy. All it takes is a little dab of the right fragrance in the right places.

Lesson One: How to Flirt: Fascinate them with La Rose Jacqueminot. Romantic. Captivating. The scent that started it all in Paris in 1905. Wear it and absolutely no man will be able to resist.

Lesson Two: How to Keep Them Guessing: Intrigue them with Chypre. Elegant. Evocative. The scent that has inspired so many imitations. Yet it has gone unrivaled. Its sensuous aura says you're a woman of style and a bit mysterious too.

Lesson Three: How to Command Attention: Seduce them with Les Muses. Coty's highly guarded secret. Dramatic. Sensuous. A multifaceted scent that leaves men longing for your attention. Now that you're fluent in French, its up to you to decide exactly what to say.

Excerpt from EssenceQuintessence

The fragrance starts out with a bright mix of spicy greens and soft honey, creating the impression of a rosebud preparing to unfurl and reveal its bright petals. While some sources list La Rose Jacqueminot as a rose soliflore, I find this to be far from true. As the fragrance progresses, the honey impression is punctuated by warm Autumn spices of cardamom and clove which make for a dark and complex rose. As the fragrance warms on the skin, the spices settle and the rose becomes more subdued. Thereafter, as the more animalic basenotes of musk and amber emerge, the effect is more of a chypre tinged with rose than a true rose scent, as though the rose is simply there to temper the complexity of the chypre accords.

    Coty La Rose Jacqueminot EDT

    The most incredible, beautiful rose scent I have ever smelled in my life. It really is just like a rose in the height of summer, a deep and haunting perfume which is truly remarkable. The rose is joined by lavender, ylang-ylang, musk and sandalwood, amongst other notes, to create a ravishing bouquet. It is so very lovely, and such a pity that the scent is now discontinued and we may only buy it in sample form. I suspect that modern regulations would prevent a perfumer from re-creating this fragrance due to the sheer amount of costly aromas it contains. It is to be regretted that we may no longer buy a full bottle from Coty, but i am pleased that Surrender to Chance provides a very worthwhile alternative in the form of samples.
