Les Parfums de Rosine Clair Matin ~ new perfume

Les Parfums de Rosine Clair Matin fragrance

Les Parfums de Rosine has launched Clair Matin, a new limited edition fragrance inspired by a salmon-pink climbing rose:

The rosebush Clair Matin was the first rose bush that Les Parfums de Rosine creator Marie-Hélène, planted in her garden.

It is a simple salmon-pink and very thorny rose with golden stamens in the heart. A rose that shows its best side just after daybreak where it suffuses a wonderful tangy, fresh fragrance.

The fragrance Clair Matin is like morning dew. Only during the course of the day does it give up its warmer, more fruity notes.

The notes feature raspberry leaves, lemon, black currant, chamomile, violet, Turkish rose, peony, musk, apricot, sandalwood and ambergris.

Les Parfums de Rosine Clair Matin is available in 100 ml Eau Fraîche, and can be found now at First in Fragrance in Germany. (via first-in-fragrance, additional information via extrait.it)

    None of the Rosine fragrances work for me I so wanted to love these.

    • Robin says:

      Wow, none of them? It is such a huge line.

      • Lovetosmell says:

        Yeah and I love Roses so I thought this would be for me it just doesn’t work for me.Except the one I did like is discontinued.

  2. Tara says:

    It sounds intriguing, but it might be too fruity.

    • Robin says:

      I was thinking it sounded so much like other Rosine fragrances. The line really is just huge now…it’s kind of daunting.

    • Haunani says:

      Agreed. I would try it, but it sounds dangerously fruity. I’ve learned that I generally don’t care for fruity roses.

  3. Is it bad that I read, ‘a new limited edition fragrance inspired by a salmon’ and stopped there and pictured salmon swimming upstream bottled as a fragrance?

    That said, it sounds extremely fruity but I kind of like the colour explosion of the bottle. I have this weird infinity for bright neon colours where things like perfumes & cosmetics are concerned, though where the perfumes are concerned, the juice and I nearly never get along.

    • boojum says:

      It’s always nice when your warning signs can be in neon…

    • Robin says:

      I love those colors too. Wonder if the juice is really that bright.

    • Marjorie Rose says:

      Ha! Eau de Salmon (Poisson Rouge? Not sure what the French call Salmon. . .)! Anyway, I’m imagining a salty scent with hints of earthiness, cedar, and tobacco smoke. Maybe a touch of sweetness from berries? Not so terrible. . . :)

  4. What a beautiful name.

    And it might not be so fruity. All the initial notes are very bright–it’s the leaves of the raspberry not the fruit, lemon, blackcurrant can be a very green scent–so that just leaves us with the apricot, which hopefully will be closer to osmanthus than candy. Guessing it will based on the light touch they’ve employed with their others.

    • annemarie says:

      Yes, I was not so struck by the danger of sweet fuit, from that description. And chamomile is not at all fruity. And I agree about the name, really lovely. Not sure about the bottle. That bright pink cap is a worry.

  5. breathesgelatin says:

    I love the aesthetic of the bottles in this line and that the name evokes Paul Poiret’s perfume line, but none of the notes on these has ever seemed to die for.

  6. mals86 says:

    Despite loving that Bond #9 pink-and-green bottle the other day, I really don’t like this bottle at all. (Okay, I admit I didn’t like the black-capped one either… Secrets de Rose, I think?)

    Notes? Eh, I dunno. Not grabbed. I still want to try that Bord de Mer one from last year, but it was LE and is probably gone.

  7. lovethescents says:

    This sounds young and pretty, not particularly novel, but fun anyway. I won’t be seeking this out as I’m up to my eyeballs in rose fragrances :-)

  8. ggperfume says:

    I’ve wanted to buy every Rosine bottle I’ve ever seen. I’d better start ordering samples to see if I even LIKE any of their fragrances, which are hard enough for me to find.

    • rziest says:

      I ordered the sample set from their official site recently, and I’m /still/ working through them all. Nice to weed some out finally, but at about halfway through it’s looking like there are several I’ll want full bottles of. Ack!

      • Bee says:

        same here, folie de rose is winning for the moment, rosissimo coming in second, maybe?

      • ggperfume says:

        Thanks for the nudge – I just ordered a sample set.
