Rochas takes us on an exotic getaway in 2019
Since 2016, this juice, initially very fresh and chypre, is also available in limited editions specifically designed for the summer season. These perfumes are brought together under the name Escapades de Rochas and focus on more solar accents. In 2016, Rochas made Eau de Rochas Escapade en Méditerranée, followed the following year by Eau de Rochas Escapade Estivale, then Eau de Rochas Escapade Tropicale in 2018. Once again, the tradition continues. In this year 2019, the newcomer is called Eau de Rochas Escapade Exotique.
L’Eau de Rochas Exotic Escapade, the evocation of a distant landscape
Let’s start by setting the scene for this new perfume. Since its launch in 1970 , Eau de Rochas has the gift of offering us incredible fragrant journeys. It all started with an inspiration from Delphi, when Nicolas Mamounas, the “nose” of the Rochas house, was on vacation in this place. It was there that he had the idea to make this legendary essence! This time, Rochas decides to take us much further, to a paradisiacal and exotic island. L’Eau de Rochas Exotic Escapade gives us the decor of a postcard. Just imagine yourself: a lush island, whose white sands are warmed by the sun, while in the background a fresh, sea spray floats directly from the ocean. This is precisely the contrast found in Eau de Rochas Escapade Exotique.
The fruity breath of Eau de Rochas Exotic Escapade
L’Eau de Rochas Escapade Exotique relies on a play of chiaroscuro and opposes very fresh and transparent top notes to a much darker and warmer background. L’Eau de Rochas Escapade Exotique begins with a fruity trio of orange, blackcurrant and apple. Its first breath is therefore infinitely airy and energizing, sparkling and crunchy. Then, the Eau de Rochas Escapade Exotique preserves all its freshness in its heart, by the presence of watermelon and melon. These typical summer fruits are associated with the more opulent jasmine, one of the most popular flowers by perfumers in feminine creations. Finally, Eau de Rochas Escapade Exotique ends with a more sensual and woody base of cedar, musk and ambroxan.
Rochas chooses to dress its bottle in a new pink color
All that remains is to discover the bottle of this new summer fragrance. As in the past, the Eau de Rochas Escapade Exotique is presented to us in a thick glass cylinder, the walls of which are finely sculpted, as if resulting from erosion in contact with water. A sphere evoking a transparent quartz overhangs the whole. Exotic birds are this time drawn on its label, in a pink color perfectly matched to the base of this unique bottle.
The summery smell of a Rochas getaway in summer!
The Rochas house was born out of Marcel Rochas’ passion for haute couture, but above all for perfumery. Very early on, despite the success of his fashion creations, Marcel Rochas offered his first perfumes and great successes such as Woman in 1944 or Mustache in 1949, while choosing to give up sewing in 1953.
L’Eau de Rochas, inspired by the peaceful stays of Marcel Rochas at the water’s edge, will once again affirm the imposing status of the Rochas house in terms of perfumery.
L’Escapade Exotique de Rochas, a summer olfactory rendezvous signed by perfumer Michel Almairac
L’Eau de Rochas was released in 1970, however it was born long before that in the mind of the great creator Marcel Rochas. As early as 1948, he asked Edmond Roudnitska, the perfumer, to compose a fresh fragrance for him that would modernize the Colognes of yesteryear, the scented composition is formidable , however it is still too early for her. It will emerge from the boxes in 1970 thanks to the talent of the appointed nose of the Rochas house, Nicolas Mamounas, who will bring it back to life by modernizing it. An incredible success then begins for Water of Rochas …
Moreover, the success is such that the beautiful fresh composition will be available in Eau de Rochas for men in 1993 then in Eau sensuelle in 2010. Finally , under the aegis of the great perfumer Michel Almairac, a new collection will be offered in 2016. in a limited edition each summer, Les Escapades de Rochas.
Les Escapades de Rochas will therefore take us in 2016 to the Mediterranean, in 2017 in a citrus paradise, in 2018 under tropical skies and in 2019 in lands where fruits are king and water refreshes the burning woods thanks to the Exotic Escapade of Rochas.
Fruity and aquatic notes for an Exotic Escapade like a dip on a paradise island
With the Exotic Escapade, Rochas once again offers us the waterfall of he intense freshness offered by Eau de Rochas while adding modern and precious fruity and aquatic notes for this new opus.
Thus, perfumer Michel Almairac has managed to preserve the beautiful orange of Eau of original Rochas. However, he added a hint of blackcurrant and a dash of hot, sweet apple to infuse energy and vitality into the Exotic Escapade. At the heart, the pretty jasmine brings its sunny opulence while the melon and the watermelon offer their sweet aquatic scents to the exotic flower.
Finally, the perfumer did not hesitate to reinforce the woody depths of the Original Rochas water to create an even greater contrast between exotic freshness and burning summer sensuality. Thus the woody notes of cedar and musk are densified by a note of ambroxan bringing them a new sensuality, immediate and ultimately very representative of the sensuality that reigns in tropical paradises at the end of the world.
Once again the Exotic Escapade captivates us and makes us dream of a holiday in the sun!
