The fragrance Rose et Cuir reveals a unique simplicity imagined by Jean-Claude Ellena. The floral beauty brought by the rose accompanied by blackcurrant and geranium plunges us into a minimalist universe. Leather brings mystery to this world and completes this fragrance that seduces us with subtlety.
Frédéric Malle Rose & Cuir can be pre-ordered now from Nose in France, in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
Update: additional notes include vetiver, pepper and cedar. It reportedly smells like rose, but has no actual rose in the ingredients. (via Elle Spain August 2019)
Another update: the description from Liberty London...
On the surface, this rose is pure, streamlined and uncompromisingly modern, blended with a unique extraction of timut pepper, geranium bourbon and a note of cassis. Peel back the layers, and a quiet storm reveals itself; a dark and mysterious bed of earthy vetiver, cedar and leather, with IsoButyl Quinoline at the centre – an intensely bitter synthetic molecule resurrected from its since-forgotten debut in the daring perfumery of the Jazz Age. Equal parts sparkling and sober, perfumery's most iconic floral is shadowed by a dramatic yet controlled sensuality.
