Who doesn’t love receiving a beautiful new bottle of enticing scent that fills your senses from the first spritz?
Mademoiselle Rochas is my newest scent-sational indulgence… This is a typically French-style perfume that has a modern energy.
Perfumer Anne Flipo wanted this new scent to reflect the playfulness and impertinence of today’s young Parisian woman.
Inspired by two beautiful fragrances, Femme and Madame, Mademoiselle Rochas has her own personality which retains their original French elegance, but is totally living in the present day.
The top notes sparkle with red fruit accord (red and black currant, blackberry) as a reminder of a carefree childhood. The crisp ivy of a French garden enhances it while creating contrast while the toffee apple accord adds an addictive quality.
At the heart of the fragrance an explosion of flowers – rose petals (from the exclusive Rochas fields), jasmine, violet. This is the essence of elegance and an expression of magnetic seduction.
The base notes highlight the character of this subtle composition: creamy sandalwood, comfortable ambergris accord and wispy Chantilly musks create a fragrance that seductively lingers on the skin…
The bottle is a simple and perfect circle of glass, evoking the softness of femininity.
The slightly pink juice reflects the floral and gourmand character of the fragrance, while a silk ribbon, iconic of Rochas, is beautifully wrapped around the edge of the bottle and delicately decorates the neck of the silver cap.
The box is stylish with embossed material and its pastel pink colour reflects the juice inside. With a timeless and refined design, its black outline perfectly matches the precisely spaced capital letters of Mademoiselle Rochas.
Actress Noémie Schmidt was chosen to embody the Frenchic character of this scent. She perfectly represents the freshness, spontaneity and elegance of Mademoiselle Rochas.
In the commercial, the young woman has a date with her lover on the terrace of a Parisian cafe. Mischievous and carefree, she takes her time and lingers in the bath, before realizing that she is late (Parisian women always are!). She puts on her dress, takes her stilettos and runs barefoot along the banks of the Ile Saint Louis, crossing the street in front of an amazed car driver, to finally meet her lover with a natural and relaxed smile on her face.
Her lover then hands her a large box decorated with a ribbon bearing the Maison Rochas logo and a lovely surprise….
