Lancôme has launched Mille et Une Roses Le Domaine de la Rose, a new fragrance in the Maison Lancôme collection. Mille et Une Roses was originally released in 1999 and was first relaunched in 2006 as part of the La Collection Lancôme series; the new version is billed as the brand's first natural fragrance.
The 2022 version of Mille et Une Roses was developed by perfumer Louise Turner, and features the natural essence of 6 varieties of rose, including May rose from Lancôme's ecological horticultural site in Grasse, Domaine de la Rose (see also: La Vie Est Belle Domaine de la Rose). 97% of the ingredients are of natural origin.
Lancôme Mille et Une Roses Le Domaine de la Rose is €188 for 100 ml Eau de Parfum.

Another update: the description from Lancôme...
To celebrate the opening of the Domaine de la Rose in Grasse, Lancôme revisits its historic fragrance Mille et Une Roses, now made of 97% ingredients of natural origins, capturing the essence and poetry of our unique domaine. The quintessence of the Rose. Sublimated, natural and modern. Unveiling its most surprising facets.
WHAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE At dawn, during the first days of May. The fields unveil their brightest sparkles of mandarine and bergamote. We take a moment to breath deeply into a bouquet of freshly picked Roses. Some are still blooming, others are thriving. Their petals still beaded with dew. Their perfume fills the air with fresh, vibrant notes, so particular to the Lancôme Rose.
WHAT ELSE YOU NEED TO KNOW With 97% naturality, the reinvention of our long-loved fragrance is the promise of a refreshing floral journey. For the first time, Lancôme created a natural fragrance, celebrating our exclusive rose. Mille et Une Roses has been formulated without any colorant, to let the natural color of juice stand our in a precious bottle, like a forever vase of 1001 roses dipped in pure gold. The heritage doors are engraved in the fragrance’s golden plate, taking you to where poetry hides, under the southern sun. An olfactive journey made golden. An invitation to pass through the golden doors of our Domaine de la Rose in Grasse.
My goodness. I still have about a third of the teardrop-shaped bottle I bought as a college student in 1999. It was a beautiful rose then and it has kept very well. I am so happy rose perfumes seem trendy/fashionable again as I love trying them, but I think I will continue to treasure my little bottle rather than seeing this as a chance to replace it. I wonder if there will be any similarities between the old (and well-aged!) and the new?
that bottle is gorgeous
Agreed, but…ouch to the price. Thought it’s been so long since I’ve looked at a Lancôme fragrance (Magie Noire was an early love) that perhaps this is their price point now.
It was such a pretty fragrance and I almost bought it a dozen times, but never did.
Betcha this is cleaner and lighter, but I don’t know.
That bottle was my first perfume love. My grandmother gave it to me.
I doubt this will be similar but we can only dream!
Oh what a wonderful gift to have been given!
