A Blackcurrant Rose Chypre - the fragrance of our dreams
Rosa Ribes is now ready. Thanks to everyone who took the plunge and bought it before you'd even smelled it so we could raise the funds to go to Fragranze, the 2016 scent trade show. This really is the perfume of our dreams - technically, Sarah's dreams - a rose and "Ribena", pink grapefruit chypre.
If we had all the time in the world we'd probably make fruity chypres from dawn til dusk; there's something about the rich, depth that just a drop of moss gives a fragrance. In Rosa Ribes, we use cedarmoss. Even if you can't pick it out as an obvious note, it gives perfumes an unmistakable feeling.
Indie perfumers have brought chypres back into style, refreshed with a new top and heart notes, 21st Century materials with anicent opoponax resin.
