Les Parfums de Rosine Vive la Mariee: new fragrance

The Fragrance of happiness!
A bride likes to choose a delicate fragrance. Vive la Mariée is a very feminine and subtle perfume, in harmony with the feelings she feels in her heart. The floral composition of Vive la Mariée has been devised like a bride's bouquet. Benoit Lapouza is the nose who has made this gentle floral scent, based on an idea by Marie-Hélène Rogeon, the creator of Les Parfums de Rosine.

A gentle floral fragrance.

 A harmony of flowers and green, made from bergamot, neroli, and lychee, comes to mind. This fades gently to allow the white flowers to appear. At the heart of the fragrance are jasmin sambac, peony, magnolia flowers and freesia accompanying the rose and orange blossom. Then, toned down but still there, are the happy scents of celebration. Wedding cake, sugar almonds and little choux pastries can be found in the sweetness of the praline, the fruity sensuality of peach and the whipped-cream of vanilla-tonka beans. The fragrance keeps its magical bridal train for us for the finish. A procession of Patchouli, Cedar, Musk and Sandalwood creates a drifting note, unreal, which will be difficult to resist.

Vive la Mariée’s tender trail will make it unforgettable for brides, grooms and their guests.

    Just in time for June weddings! Sounds pretty. :) ~~~Lilybelle

  2. A Rosine not centered on rose? Progress! Not my type of scent, but I do like many Rosines (and just bought a bottle of the intriguing, raspy Twill rose).

    By chance, I just had the chance to smell the Osmotheque Fruit defendu, from the original incarnation of the brand. Likely, a more adventurous line, which likely will not sell well now.


  3. L,

    indeed that was part of the marketing!

  4. M,

    indeed, hurray!

    I do like Rose d'Homme. I need to resniff Twill Rose.

    I had once heard from someone unnamed that the production of the modern Rosines was like spitting on the face of Paul Poiret. It's not something that is nice to think of or even with which I agree 100% but the thought has stuck all the same.

  5. It seems an exagerated judgement. I think the current Rosines is an excellent line, which manages to create intriguing variations on the central rose theme, unlike most houses, which become boring when paying their duties to the rose altar. But the old line (from the names at least, I've only smelled the forbidden fruit) was a true, broad line that did not take its name literally. And was likely more true to the avant-garde (for the era) Poiret style (I saw an exhibit at the Metropolitan museum a few years back, quite impressive).

    In any case, current Rosine favorites for me are Twill rose (a greenish, raspy rose with dirty undertones, not quite as musky as Turin makes it in his book, but certainly dirtyish), Rose d'amour (a green rose chypre'), and the patchouli rose Folie de rose (which was suggested to me when I told the sales assistant that my mom likes Aromatics Elixir - and for once, a good suggestion).


  6. M,

    it could be yes, but I mentioned it to show how people think of the principle of the thing.
    After all Poiret dedicated the original line to his daughter, Rosine, so the adherence to rose wasn't de iuro attached. ;-)
    Forbidden Fruit is a glorious name for a glorious composition, so saturated. Isn't the Osmotheque a most interesting experience?
