Rose deMai

The queen of flowers

And even when the party is over, the rose will continue on as the privileged companion of our Nose. Not just your standard ordinary rose, but the magnificent pride of the people of Grasse: the Centifolia, or the “Rose de Mai”. You won’t find her frequently within Exporose… As she is not used so much for decoration as for her divine fragrance, tucked within her delicate petals that open each morning of the month of May through the beginning of June. The Centifolia must be picked at dawn to capture the ultimate noble fragrance. 

The rose from every angle

A cornerstone of fine perfumery, the powerful scent of Centifolia provides unlimited inspiration for perfumers. It is often used in the most prestigious perfumes and blends with the most timeless, as well as the most extravagant compositions.

The Centifolia signature can be soft, smooth, fruity, intense, delicate, deep, and opulent.. it blends just as well with powdery notes as with animal, sweet, or spicy. It can be the heart or head note.

Create your perfume

After a walk up the steps or a fun dance on the place aux Aires, come by and learn about perfume creation during an Atelier at the Studio des Fragrances ? And compose your own perfume following the inspiration of the festival, to create a memory you will never forget!
