Rouge Malachite is an expression of Russia's contrasting culture, with its mysterious, intoxicating power, and by its women, whose fair complexion lights up with red full of life and hope. In Russia, red protected crops and made them fertile; secure in this belief, peasants tied a sheaf with red twine for the heavens to grant them a rich harvest. At the end of the harvest, the last sheaf gathered will be decorated with a red ribbon and preserved in the same manner as religious icons. The colour of passion and power, this imaginary stone, Rouge Malachite, becomes a fragrance that pulses with energy. Rouge Malachite transports us to the centre of an incandescent world, where tuberose revels in its opulence and voluptuousness. A carnal accord with exuberant notes oscillating between strength and gentleness. It is a vision of a solar tuberose created by Pascal Gaurin (IFF). A singular, massive presence in the head notes, tuberose meets clary sage essence, creating an unexpected sharpness, enhanced by pink peppercorns. At the heart, tuberose, orange blossom, ylang ylang and sambac jasmine absolutes combine, diving into a voluptuous and deep vibration of Cashmeran wood and benzoin resinoid. Finally, the tuberose, perfectly structured, burns red like a radiant sunset, contrasting with the AmberXtreme©* in a surprising dosage to give verticality and strength to this fragrance of fire and ice. A fragrance for men and women. *Ingredient exclusive to IFF. 100ml A STONE BOTTLE As though carved in malachite, a stone bottle was created in two variants, intense green and vibrant red, to represent two facets of Russia. As a result of clever craftsmanship, the bottle features the iridescent banding characteristic of the stone. Each bottle is unique, surmounted by a cast resin cap.
