Rōzu Eau de Parfum

Aesop’s fourth fragrance, Rōzu Eau de Parfum, with its rich floral notes of Rose, Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, sweet herbal notes of Patchouli and musk (just to name a few) smells absolutely divine! This perfume was created in partnership with Aesop's long-term collaborator Barnabé Fillion. Inspired by the life, work and enthusiasms of the prominent French modernist designer Charlotte Perriand, and the Japanese rose that bears her name, it is an intense yet tender fragrance—nuanced and expansive, with remarkable longevity. This fragrance will appeal to all genders.
