Within Guerlain Haute Parfumerie, Rose Barbare belongs to L’Art & La Matière, a collection of olfactory masterpieces for true lovers of all things beautiful, born of the encounter between the finest raw materials and the talent of the House of Guerlain Perfumer.
The most universal of flowers, the most cherished, the most praised and especially the most celebrated by perfumers. The Guerlain perfumer envisioned it very differently from all the stereotypes: an unexpected and contemporary rose. Rose Barbare is a proud Ottoman that also offers the fresh and spontaneous sensuality of a honeyed chypre base. Uncontrollable, this desirable, sensual rebel captures the heart.
The fragrance dresses up in a bottle with clean, contemporary lines, decorated with a golden metal label on the side, like a precious book. An elegant wooden cap adds the finishing touch to this beautiful piece. The bottle nestles in an amethyst “leather feel” case (which may be transformed into a jewellery box as you wish).
This unexpected and contemporary interpretation of the noblest of flowers combines rose essence and absolute with surprising peach honey and forest floor notes. A thorny rose with mysterious accents.
Top notes: aldehydes, Bulgarian rose essence. Heart notes: Turkish rose absolute, fenugreek. Note de fond: peach honey, patchouli, forest floor notes.

Rose has always been a favourite raw material of Guerlain, the muse of five generations of perfumers, from Nahéma to La Petite Robe Noire, by way of Idylle. This mysterious rose can also appeal to and be worn by men.
