La Rose Boudoir

Our delightful La Rose Suite was inspired by a memorable visit to the famous small town of Grasse on the French Riviera during their annual Rosa centifolia harvest in May 2007. An hour’s drive from Monaco, Grasse is noted for its narrow streets lined with pink-painted buildings and, thanks to what some perfumers consider a perfect microclimate (it’s in a hilly, irrigated area that’s far enough inland to be protected from sea breezes), an outsize reputation as a perfume capital since the late eighteenth century. Many of the elite French fragrance houses, including Hermès, Chanel, and Dior, source their roses and jasmine here. 

When is a Rose not just a Rose?

When it’s Rosa centifolia, an old varietal so highly scented that it makes the florally obsessed downright covetous. It’s a little fruitier, deeper, and more voluptuous than any other rose, known for its complex yet clean, single note–inspired scents. Centifolia’s allure is heightened by the fact that it’s still grown commercially in relatively few places: The most famous is of course the small town of Grasse which we visited, where sadly decades of rising real estate prices have shrunk thousands of acres of rose fields to just a few plots.
