The House of Van Cleef & Arpel�s couture perfumery collection �Collection Extraordinaire� is an exquisite collection of rare and luxurious fragrances. The beauty of nature, which is always a major source of inspiration for Van Cleef & Arpels High Jewellery, is elementary to these compositions.
Rose Velours, is a sensual and opulent take on perfumery�s very finest flower.� The epitome of femininity, it has never ceased to inspire perfumers with its slightly lemony freshness, sweet fruity accents, honeyed warmth and woody scents.� Rose Velours contains Rose Absolue, the noblest and most precious extract of this legendary flower.�� The top notes are fresh, crisp and colourful, evoking the spring�s morning dew. They feature citrus (Italian Bergamot essence) playfully mingling with Violet Leaves. Rose Velours then becomes enveloped in golden honey and turns velvety with the addictive temptation of Iris, both soft and sweet. Then, dense, sensual, daring richness of precious woods add vibrancy to the rose, now infused with ravishing Benzoin.
In this couture collection, bottles are sculpted in pure and slender shapes. Glass is heavy and precious. Like a jewel, the bottle is signed with a stamp on the bottom and topped with a black lacquered cap.
