This Enthralling Fragrance By Rochas Transports You Back To Paris

It’s true — we’ve all been transported somewhere by a scent — a sunlit rose garden, Sundays in bed, a summery afternoon in Paris, and the list goes on. Especially when it comes to fragrances, you’d best believe that we’re huge believers in using a scent every day as a way to — literally, take a breather. So what kind of scent would a chic French girl, or a friend who knows the City of Lights like the back of her hand opt for you might ask?

 

The next scent to spritz on in the day, to uplift your spirits, or even transport you to faraway destinations, check out Rochas Mademoiselle Eau de Toilette. With just a spritz of this gourmand fragrance, Paris doesn’t seem quite so far away.

The Scent 

The new sparkling and refreshing chapter by Rochas introduces us to a whole new take on fruity-floral blends in the world of fragrances. Accompanied by a musky-green-floral accord, Rochas Mademoiselle EDT highlights a more playful, charming and amusing facet for the indispensable “Frenchic” girl.

 

Inspired by Rochas’ airy, flowing dresses, the latest eau de toilette by Rochas opens with a burst of pink peppercorns, violet leaf and blackcurrant for a more seductive take on a fruity and tangy cocktail blend of scents. With a smell that’s so compelling, so intoxicating, it’s layered in deliciousness without being too overpowering — we were definitely hooked at first whiff.

At the heart of this chic, yet daring fragrance lies a bouquet of white flowers, sambac jasmine, and energised by the freshness of honeysuckle, transforming it into a scent that’s sparkling, fresh and spicy.

The base reveals a seductive facet of cedarwood, benzoin and white musks to accentuate the sensuality of the fragrance — leaving medium-heavy sillage that lingers on throughout the day.

The Inspiration

Like the women behind the fragrance — the sparkling, fresh and spicy scents featured in the Rochas Mademoiselle EDT draws from the joie de vivre of a pretty young girl that is as radiant and exciting as the promise as happiness — exuding positive energy that enthrals both boys and girls alike.

With a fresh and spontaneous personality, she’s the perfect embodiment of a young Parisian girl who follows her dreams but keeps her feet on her ground. Take, for instance, Sheena Phua.

 

Sure, the perfect female fragrance may be entirely subjective, but we think an eau de toilette like Rochas Mademoiselle fits the bill. It’s romantic, feminine, and effortlessly alluring.

The widely adored charm of Sheena’s style resonates well with the sexy femininity of your Parisian gal. But that’s not all — in fact, behind her façade of gentleness lies a strong, independent entrepreneur. At such a young age, it’s hard to believe that she already has her own bridal gown business, a.k.a. Blush House Bridal, and you’ll also notice her donning some of them as well. With such spontaneity and positivity, it comes as no surprise that she identifies well with the Rochas’ Mademoiselle’s fragrance itself!

The Bottle

Ask any fragrance buff and chances are they’ll tell you the same thing: the importance of fragrances and its packaging cannot be simply ignored. And as much as you want to deny it, you know it’s true.

Keeping its original curves, the Rochas Mademoiselle EDT is engraved with the couture house’s favourite pinstripe motif, topped with a dainty fuchsia ribbon — an essential wardrobe accessory seen on the necks of many Parisian women.

With its clear bottle design, the fragrance displays a delicate rose-coloured juice — recalling the fruity-floral gourmand that’s striking and formidable, yet elegant and feminine.

On the contrary, you can also opt for a different alternative from the fragrance line such as the Rochas Mademoiselle EDP. While the Eau de Toilette takes on a vibrant and mischievous facet, the Eau de Parfum by Rochas, on the other hand, sees itself as a playful fragrance that boasts positivity for the young, active and cheerful Parisian that we all know and love.

The Rochas Mademoiselle EDP opens with a tangy sparkle of red fruit accords that refreshes your senses, while crisp ivy develops a contrast, and toffee apple accords wrap it up for a sweet intoxicating blend. At the heart of the fragrance lies a burst of florals from wonderful Egyptian jasmine to distilled rose petals, before ending off with a base of sandalwood, ambergris accords and Chantilly Musks for a seductive touch to the fragrance. We’re hooked!
