Chopard Rose Malaki is the latest addition to the Malaki line. This spicy floral fragrance is a sensual tribute to one of the most revered ingredients in the ancient art of perfumery: the Rose. A symbol of love par excellence, roses were used as early as the first century B.C. to create perfumes in Morocco but the process was greatly refined by Ibn Sina (Avicenna) who discovered how to extract rose essence from the petals of the regal flower.
Chopard Rose Malaki revisits these oriental origins through the unique combination of Damascena Rose absolute and a rose petals accord. The Damascena Rose is one of the oldest cultivars in existence, renowned for its voluptuous, almost carnal scent and its addictive honeyed undertones. The rose petal accord conceived by master perfumer Amandine Clerc-Marie (Firmenich) adds to this intense sensuality a fresher and brighter dimension, a dewy quality.
This bouquet of roses is artfully facetted by the noblest of all spices, saffron. Like the Damascena Rose, saffron originates from Persia where it has been used for millennia as a pigment and a medicinal component. Its very demanding cultivation commands such high prices that it has been dubbed the red gold. Its scent is unmatched: warm and vibrant, it carries a slightly leathery quality, reminiscent of suede. Adding to the natural sensuousness of the rose, it brings to Chopard Rose Malaki a subtle note of mystery and fascination.
Chopard Rose Malaki closes on a third distinctively oriental note, Atlas cedar. Growing in the mountain chain of Morocco and Algeria, this noble wood possesses a warm and enveloping tonality. Slightly camphorated, it creates a captivating trail, a mesmerizing aftertaste that enriches the Rose Malaki experience.
Wearing Chopard Rose Malaki provides an empowering feeling of sensuality and refinement. This fragrance for men and women is a tribute to a timeless form of luxury, striking a perfect balance between elegance and seduction.
The pure lines of Chopard Rose Malaki’s heavy glass bottle and the anthracite sobriety of its solid metal cap allude to Chopard’s watch-making origins. They evoke its universe of fine workmanship and reliable quality. The golden pink hue softens this rigorous design and alludes to the key ingredient of this unique fragrance. The matching box is stamped with the Chopard signature, token of taste and seal of excellence.
