Start the week with a new mood-boosting scent and indulge in Rōzu Eau de Parfum’s unexpected coupling of sweet rose and icy shiso, with a touch of woody spice to bring you back down to earth
Self-care is not confined to meditation, journalling and skincare, sometimes the practice can be as simple as lighting a scented candle or spritzing a fragrance you love — after all, scents have the power to affect your mood and your memories. With that in mind, this week’s dose of self-care is dedicated to Aesop’s latest aroma: Rōzu Eau de Parfum.
The brand’s fourth fragrance, Rōzu Eau de Parfum, is inspired by the life and work of renowned French modernist designer Charlotte Perriand, and the Japanese rose garden that was created in her name. Top notes of floral rose are complemented with shiso, guaiacwood and powdery base notes of patchouli, vetiver extract and myrrh (aromas often linked to traditional men’s colognes).
An intense, yet tender olfactory that reflects Perriand’s bold character, the scent is designed to appeal to both genders and brings together paradoxes; think, warm and complex florals, mixed with green citrus, wood and earthy smoke, to find an unexpected balance of floral and musk.
Encased in one of Aesop’s minimalist glass bottles, in a box featuring an image from Perriand’s photographic archives, the fragrance is brimming with nostalgia and memories — whether it’s the scent of Perriand sat prettily on your desk, or the memories you are yet to create, wearing the floral-meets-woody perfume.
A calming and alluring blend, Rōzu Eau de Parfum brings a bouquet of roses to your a vanity table. If that’s not spirit-lifting, we don’t know what is.
Aesop’s Rōzu Eau de Parfum is now available in Dubai via Ounass, or in store at Aesop Dubai Mall and Aesop Mall of Emirates.
