Chypre | Small Batch | Seattle, WA
Ballets Rouges is a classic chypre with a base of oakmoss, musk, patchouli and labdanum, a floral heart, and citrusy top notes that include aldehydes and bergamot. The use of contemporary musks rather than the traditional ones results in a classic fragrance with a modern feel. The heart includes a fresh rose accord, rose de mai absolute and ylang-ylang. Red thyme and red mandarin add novel top notes.
Ballets Rouges is for all those who have been craving a full-bodied, updated vintage-type rose perfume complete with natural oakmoss. It’s a thickly layered, jewel-colored perfume in the grand style, perfect for those occasions when only a boldly sensuous statement and the romance of a dozen deliciously fragrant, musky roses will do.
