Inside its verdant bottle originally designed inthe momentous year of its name, 1872 Feminine Edition Eau de Parfum houses an effervescent rose whose clean, fresh and green notes burst forth as if from a popped champagne bottle. Interestingly, for a perfume named after the past, 1872 Feminine Edition Eau de Parfum recalls nothing of rose’s usual conservative and stodgy reputation. This is a young and fresh rose, with top notes such as bergamot, tangerine and lemon and a light chypre dry down of patchouli, moss, cedar, sandalwood and musk.
A sheer and fresh Rose de Mai—whose green facets are pushed to the fore by lily of the valley—glimmers at the heart of 1872 Feminine Edition. Also known as the “painter’s rose,” this precious flower blooms only for three weeks in Grasse, France, and it takes 170 heads of Rose de Mai for just one drop of 1872 Feminine Edition Eau de Parfum. With intense projection and longevity, 1872 Feminine Edition belies its central flower’s poetically short life. Hesperidic, clean and cheerful, 1872 Feminine Edition is a jolt for the senses.

Patricia Choux was already dreaming of creating perfume while still in her childhood, and with her admission to the renowned ISIPCA school for perfumers in Paris she achieved the crucial step towards fulfilling her dream. Her training in Paris was followed by years of practice with Symrise in Holzminden, Germany’s largest fragrance company, and further assignments as a perfumer in London, Paris and New York, where she has been living and working since 2005.
Her style is bold, crazy, chic. Her creations are determined by impressions gleaned during her travels: landscapes, colors, smells and cultures become the essences of her fragrances, combining into fresh, exciting compositions. She experiments as much with the exotic as with the endless facets of the scent of jasmine, her favorite blossom.
