HOW IT SMELLS
Rose Poivrée is a juicy succulent rose with the mandarin and peppery top note, however as it settles there is a soft earthiness to the rose that is elegant and also kinda sexy. A smooth resinous depth creates a soft pillow for this peppery rose scent.
We love imagining that this is how the studio of Giambattisa Valli smells and we just love it. It’s a cool, elegant rose fragrance that has a Parisian chic vibe to it. We also love how Rose Poivrée seesaws between pretty and innocent then to sexy with a little bit of an earthy grunt to it so seamlessly.
