“After having offered a subtle and modern lily of the valley with LE MUGUET DE ROSINE, Marie-Hélène and Louis Rogeon wanted to introduce a new soliflore in the collection, and they choose the magnolia. Even if magnolia tree does not come in their garden in Picardie – situated too much in the north of France – Marie-Hélène and Louis both have a strong relationship with this flower. Marie-Hélène as a child spent some holidays in Britany, and she remembers the huge, strong and dark magnolia trees, exploding in August with velvety, creamy flowers, surrounding the atmosphere with their fresh citrussy smell, covering the fragrance of the rose bushes. A memory of a solar perfume, synonymous of joy, with the delicacy of the roses as a background. For Louis, the story is more unusual. Very near to our boutique in Jardin du Palais Royal, in a street named rue Notre Dame des Victoires, one magnolia tree has been planted. And every summer, this part of the city, when you close your eyes, becomes a garden. As an enchantment, the powerful of the fragrance is such that it covers all the other urban smells.
Pierre Bourdon created LE MAGNOLIA DE ROSINE with the idea of a very pure and natural magnolia fragrance,
and Delphine Lebeau put her feminine touch. Based on a pure magnolia essence the formula is short and goes to the essential. The top note evokes the solar and bright smell of the flower with citrus essence, blackcurrant and freesia. The heart is deliciously floral with magnolia essence, rose essence, lily of the valley and peony. The base is white musk for a clean and long lasting fragrance. As a limited edition, LE MAGNOLIA DE ROSINE comes in our classic bottle adorned with a white velvet knot evoking the touch of the magnolia flower. The sticker on the box is also in a velvet material.” – a note from the brand.
Le Magnolia de Rosine was launched in 2018.
