Part of Keiko Mecheri’s Soliflorals range, Mogador is all the most coveted roses gathered in one iridescent, modern perfume. Velvety, rich petals of Moroccan rose give the tempo. Jasmine notes reaffirm its suave femininity. This perfume brings one closer than ever to the roses chanted in the poetry of Rumi…
What was said to the rose
that made it open
was said to me
here in my chest.
Top: May Rose
Middle: Jasmine, Bulgarian Rose, Dades Rose
HOW IT WEARS
Mogador opens with a vivid, verdant snapshot of rose and jasmine. From there it toggles between a jammy, sweet rose to a green rose with freshness that at times is almost aquatic. A realistic exploration of the rose, this scent will last a good 6-8 hours on the skin.
We imagine Mogador as a pristine, leafy rose preserved and displayed under a sparkling glass cloche. It is the head of a pink or red rose with just the suggestion of the green leafiness underneath. A must try for any rose lover.
ABOUT THE BRAND
Founded by its namesake in 1997, Keiko Mecheri is all about unconventionality and the reinterpretation of tradition in fragrance. Keiko herself was born in Japan, studied in Europe and then eventually settled down in Los Angeles, California, where she founded the brand. The fragrances reflect this worldly influence while keeping a distinctly LA feel – bohemian and laid-back, but also diverse, imaginative and innovative.
Keiko Mecheri serves as a point of difference to the more traditional French perfume “establishment”. Its fragrances take ingredients and notes we think we know, and re-create them with a modern twist. To Keiko, fragrance is about capturing a brief moment in time. She acquires inspiration from travel, music, film, photography, and her own memories, which can really be felt in each one of her fragrances.
