BALLERINA is this lovely rose bush in Marie-Hélène Rogeon’s garden which gave its name to a perfume collection asserting at LES PARFUMS DE ROSINE house the idea of a perfumery very « à la française », very feminine, delicious and affordable. The first in the saga, BALLERINA N°1, a tender and innocent fragrance, is illustrating “le petit rat d’opera”. Then BALLERINA N°2 is magnifying the prima donna in her art, with a wide and assertive perfume. Then two creations inspired by the famous ballet Swan Lake completed the collection : BALLERINA N°3 for the black swan, mysterious with its double facets of rose and oud; and BALLERINA N°4 for the white swan, a luminous, deep and pure perfume of white flowers. Today the ballet THE BAYADERE is giving the tuning of BALLERINA N°5
THE BAYADERE ballet, created by Marius Petitpa is extraordinarily rich, bursting with colors and where gold is omnipresent. Of course, the love affair lies in India, and we imagine this mysterious country, whose smell can be « infinitely sweet » as Pier Paolo Pasolini wrote
It is therefore a shimmering and rich fragrance, like gold and vibrant with a thousand of colors that Delphine Lebeau is offering us. We enshrined it in a silky matte gold bottle, decorated with a golden organza tutu. Then for BALLERINA N°5, the rose is treated with “ infinitely gourmand” accords : we are dreaming of candied roses, rose petal jellies, crystallized flowers…
An infinitely suave perfume, undeniably elegant and desirable.
