Discover two fresh scents from luxe-y French brand Rochas. Mademoiselle Rochas Eau de Parfum and Mademoiselle Rochas Eau de Toilette. Editor Trudi Brewer shares a fragrance duo that will ensure you won't smell the same as everyone else?
We never tire of feminine, fruity scents and the latest duo under the Rochas label are perfection. From the vintage-inspired bottle to the pretty floral scent inside. These scents are the work of Anne Flipo, who's a prolific perfumer. Her creations include Jo Malone London The Herb Garden collection, Basil & Neroli and Honeysuckle & Davana. From another British brand Burberry Brit Rhythm, the classic, pretty Chloé Love Story, and the more commercial Lancome La Vie Est Belle to name a few. Now, two new delightful additions to the Rochas collection, inspired by the alchemy of fragrance and fashion.

What is in it?
The epitome of French chic Mademoiselle Rochas Eau de Parfum pays tribute to classic Madame Rochas that launched back in 1960. But this new interpretation promises to leave a floral fruity trail behind the woman who wears it. Plunge your senses into this exuberant bouquet of jasmine, rose and pretty violet. Sweetened by toffee apple and redcurrant, there is a crisp, green addition of ivy leaf that gives it a refreshing edge. Finally, the voluptuous, blend of sandalwood, ambergris, and whipped-cream musk give this fragrance hearty longevity.
Mademoiselle Rochas Mademoiselle, Eau de Toilette, 30ml $72.
What’s in it?
The brand calls this fragrance a delicate, musky green floral; we call it a sunbeam of summer goodness. The combination of blackcurrant and blood orange gives it a holiday vibe; what you would expect a tangy cocktail to smell like sitting poolside. The dash of pink peppercorn, violet leaf, and blend of white flowers, including velvety rose petals, sambac jasmine, and delicate honeysuckle is divine. Finally, the creamy, woody facets that smell differently on everyone are a blend of cedarwood, benzoin and white musks and promise to give this fragrance a sexy boost, which helps it linger for hours.
Why do we like this duo?
It's been a while since this classic fashion house has had a fragrance launch. In an industry characterized by signature scents, this duo comes with an excellent pedigree, and the ingredient blend is set to shake things up in fragrance circles. Women love perfume and newness is what drives this competitive market, and in the case of Rochas, the only thing better than a pretty, new fruity floral scent (which happen to be a top seller right now) is two of them. They are exquisite.
