Among all the existing varieties of Roses, only two are used in perfumery: The Damascena Rose and the Centifolia Rose. Depending on the extraction processes, different facets of the Rose can be brought out - Green note, Honey note, Verbena note, Bubble-gum note, sometimes even Artichoke note - the possible descriptions are numerous. It is the work of the perfumer to carve the raw material, like we would a precious stone, in order to bring out the desired characteristics of the Rose.
Intense, woody, leathery, the Black Pepper gives depth, dimension and “teeth” to any olfactory composition. When associated with the Rose, it releases its sensual, almost animal aspect. More powerful and spicier than Black Pepper, the Pink Pepper can also perfectly be used to give nuance to a perfume. Beyond power, it brings some fresh woody notes to compositions.
