Rose Royale, Shiseido

Rose Royale, Shiseido.
Perhaps taking inspiration from the manga series, “The Rose of Versailles” which tells the romantic story of Lady Oscar (a character perhaps inspired by the Chevalier D’Eon), a girl who dresses as a boy and who becomes Marie Antoinette’s royal guard and assists in helping to cover-up  Marie Antoinette’s meetings with her lover Count Axel von Fersen.  Described as an aristocratic, luxurious and sophisticated fragrance, an indispensable attribute of the noble, self-confident and sensual ladies.  Rose Royale is able to emphasize unique individuality, grace and timeless beauty.  Notes include Bulgarian rose, Magnolia, Bergamot, Rosa centifolia, Ylang-ylang, Jasmine, Iris, Oakmoss, White cedar. Launched in 2006 however exclusive to Japan.
