Les Parfums de Rosine Ballerina No. 1 ~ new perfume

Les Parfums de Rosine Ballerina No. 1

Les Parfums de Rosine will launch Ballerina No. 1, a new 'soft and delicate' fragrance for women.

A rose-tree with a fleeting perfume, a spiny bush which opens the olfactory field to every possibility and allows the nose to create, by means of the perfume, a flesh and blood ballerina - in Marie-Hélène Rogeon’ s imagination, a mischievous and delicate dancer.

Like the flower, the perfume begins with the rose, and is adorned, at its heart, with pale - almost white - shades.

The first notes, peach and pear, spring out with the grace of a leaping cat: sparkling, multi-coloured. The rose and the peony, the floral fulcrum of this tender heart, spread their gentle, pastel facets wherever the dancer’s arabesques take them. Like a flowing veil of milky white, the final harmony enfolds the skin and gives it the transparent hues of a porcelain figurine.

Les Parfums de Rosine Ballerina No. 1 will be available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum.

    Love the concept, love the notes, like the pink and gold, but, good heavens, loose that tutu! LOL.

      Must be the most frou-frou bottle they’ve done.

    Reads like some kind of pulp horror!

    I’m so turned off by the bottle I won’t even try the juice.

    Glad I am not the only one finding the print to be slightly disturbing…
    Firstly the aforementioned “Flesh and blood ballerina” then comes “Springing out of the leaping cat”, which I could only imagine as a wide-eyed frightened cat with extended claws leaping out through the velvet red curtains. Then lastly the unfolding of the skin (Black Swan anyone?) with a now porcelain figurine!? I thought she was alive…

      My thoughts exactly.

    • Merlin says:

      Mainly I just got the sense that the writer had got pretty knotted and confused in his/her figures of speech, lol!

    “…..wherever the dancer’s arabesques take them.”

    An arabesque is a position in Ballet technique – not a traveling step….so an arabesque wouldn’t take the dancer anywhere. Funny.

    • Merlin says:

      Couldn’t work out why that sounded so wrong!

    This bottle so isn’t me but I LOVE it. Tulle skirt and all. I doubt that the fragrance will ever replace my favourite Rosine Ecume in my affections but, I’ll say it again that bottle is gorgeous.
