Inside its verdant bottle originally
designed in the momentous year of its
name, 1872 for Women houses an
effervescent rose whose clean, fresh and
green notes burst forth as if from a
popped champagne bottle. Interestingly,
for a perfume named after the past, 1872
for Women recalls nothing of rose's
usual conservative and stodgy
reputation. This is a young and fresh
rose, with top notes such as bergamot,
tangerine and lemon and a light chypre
dry down of patchouli, moss, cedar,
sandalwood and musk.
A sheer and fresh Rose de Mai — whose
green facets are pushed to the fore by
lily of the valley — glimmers at the
heart of 1872 for Women. Also known as
the “painter's rose, ” this precious
flower blooms only for three weeks in
Grasse, France, and it takes 170 heads
of Rose de Mai for just one drop of 1872
for Women. With intense projection and
longevity, 1872 belies its central
flower's poetically short life.
Hesperidic, clean and cheerful, 1872 is
a jolt for the senses.
