I am wearing it I wore it… It inspires me It doesn't inspire me


The sunny opening heralds a gentle but persistent rose, with a powdery tonality reinforced by iris. The musky base is warmed up with a touch of amber. Designed by: Alberto Morillas, Firmenich.

Radiant rose


‘essence’ is the second perfume for women from American designer Narciso Rodriguez. The couturier wanted a timeless fragrance with ‘the duality of a woman’s nature – the intense and the ethereal, the simple and the complex’. The sophisticated mirror bottle shelters a radiant rose essence. A sweet, powdery rose over a base of musk, the couturier’s signature ingredient.


Eau de Parfum 50 and 100 ml ; body lotion 200 ml ; shower gel 200 ml ; Deodorant 100 ml.


The glass bottle’s interior has been lacquered with metal to create a mirror effect. Designed by: Ross Lovegrove.

    I can't decide yet whether to wear this scent or Forever Vera by Vera Wang to an upcoming wedding.

    I love the silver lacquer bottle and the powdered rose mixed with stark clean Iris.

    Pour moi , c'est une mauvaise nouvelle car il m'est arrivé de l'offrir à plusieurs reprises et, à chaque fois, mes amies ont été conquises. Mais, il est vrai qu'avec toutes ces sorties en cascade, il faut faire de place sur les rayons des parfumeries !

    Il est discontinué ou en voie de l'être. Il ne méritait pas un tel sort tout de même.
