Key Notes of Collection Extraordinaire - Rose Velours
What Does Collection Extraordinaire - Rose Velours Smell Like
Collection Extraordinaire - Rose Velours by Van Cleef & Arpels opens with a distinct freshness, as the crisp and green scent of violet leaf is delicately highlighted by the subtle citrusy note of bergamot. From there, it gradually transitions into a blend of sweet and floral heart notes. The rich and almost nectar-like sweetness of honey emerges, intertwining seamlessly with the intense, velvety fragrance of rose absolute. The floral bouquet is further enriched by orris absolute, which lends a powdery touch, enhancing the depth and complexity of the scent. As the perfume settles, it reveals a comforting and warm base. The slightly musky and earthy nuance of Ambroxan is paired with the sweet, resinous scent of benzoin. The soft, subtly woody aroma of cedarwood adds an undercurrent of natural warmth, grounding the floral and sweet notes. The resulting composition is a blend of floral, sweet, and powdery essences, punctuated by woody and fruity undertones. Despite its complex array of notes, Collection Extraordinaire - Rose Velours maintains a sense of inviting softness throughout, presenting an aroma that is at once enveloping and striking in its delightful simplicity.
