Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Beauty -

DID YOU KNOW? The Greeks and Ro­mans be­lieved

roses to be in­car­na­tions of Aphrodite and Venus, and that the flow­ers

used to be white but turned red af­ter Cupid’s ac­ci­den­tal spill of a glass of

wine on them. Ac­qua di Parma Rosa No­bile EDP, RM448 (50ml) & RM657 (100ml)

An ode to a rose that only blooms in Italy, it opens with ra­di­ant man­darin and berg­amot, lead­ing into cit­rus, rose, muguet,

vi­o­let, and peony. His­toires de Par­fums 1740 Mar­quis de Sade EDP, RM582 (120ml)

His­toires de Par­fums im­mor­talises the he­do­nist in an un­doubt­edly dis­tinct blend. Dom­i­nant leather, dark in­cense, im­mortelle and var­i­ous woody notes are all suc­cinctly ev­ery bit as enig­matic and lib­eral as the

Mar­quis him­self. Dip­tyque 34 Boule­vard Saint Ger­main EDT, RM550 (100ml) Bot­tled nos­tal­gia of un­bri­dled youth in hal­cyon days. Top notes of black­cur­rant and green leaves yield to the familiar, com­fort­ing rose heart. Sink into its base of woody notes,

bal­sam, resin, and a touch of eu­ca­lyp­tus.

Ate­lier Cologne, Gold Leather cologne ab­solue, RM1,289

(200ml) Boasting a hand­crafted leather cap and golden bot­tle, this so­phis­ti­cated blend in­cludes Ja­maican rum, plum, Seville or­ange, gua­iac wood, saf­fron, and of course, smooth leather.
