Diptyque will launch Essences Insensées 2016, the third limited edition harvest-based fragrance in the La Collection 34 series (see Essences Insensées 2014 and Essences Insensées 2015). This year's edition centers on the May rose of Grasse.
Essences Insensées 2016 was developed by perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin, who noted...
I used several different yet complementary rose extracts to create this unique composition. I captured the scent of a live rose which I blended with a rose centifolia absolute to render the scent of fresh rose petals. In the end, the rose infusion boosted the intensity of the fragrance, generating a one of a kind, almost tangible floral bouquet.
Additional notes include red fruits and honey.
Diptyque Essences Insensées 2016 will be $180 for 120 ml Eau de Parfum.
