The fourth and latest fragrance to join Aesop’s collection is Rōzu Eau de Parfum (HK$1,300/50ml), a unisex scent that draws inspiration from the life, work and enthusiasms of muse and celebrated French modernist designer, Charlotte Perriand, and the Japanese rose that bears her name. Lending his nose for the new launch is perfumer and long-time collaborator Barnabé Fillion who you may know from previous Aesop favourites such as Hwyl Eau de Parfum (a natural fragrance rich in dark green textures and robust spices) and Marrakech Intense (a journey of the senses encapsulating evocative spices in local fare, and woody and oriental aromas).

Taking Charlotte Perriand’s passion for extensive travels, egalitarianism, a love for the wild outdoors and modernism, Rōzu is a reference to a blend of her lifelong affections including her love for Japan. Appealing to both genders, the fragrance opens with rich floral notes of rose, petitgrain, bergamot, shiso and pink pepper; while the heart is composed of headier florals such as ylang ylang, jasmine and guaiacwood, with hints of sandalwood, vertiver, patchouli and myrrh to end.

 

The Rōzu Eau de Parfum is available in a 50ml glass bottle, encased in an elegant box featuring an image from Perriand’s personal photographic archives.
