Featured in each and every Lancôme fragrance for women, and often in the background of many of its compositions for men, the rose is the brand’s emblematic signature. This most majestic queen of flowers has become an emblem of femininity and deserved a singular homage. Created as a limited edition in time for the new millennium, 1001 Roses concentrates exceptional quality absolute and essence of Damask rose, sourced from Turkey and Bulgaria. Adorned with ambrette seed, tangerine and pepper, this rose starts as a closed bud, still bejewelled with fresh morning dew. The closer you come to skin to breathe in its fragrance, the more the bud flourishes. Petal by petal, it generously opens out, exuding incomparable radiance. Amber, vanilla pod and white musk then emerge, revealing their sumptuous scents on skin. The flower then takes on a subtly oriental accent, prolonging its hold and growing in body. A rare essence born of the world's finest and most noble raw materials.

The bottle is a pared-down, contemporary reinterpretation of the early 1960s glass bottle designed by artist Georges Delhomme, a key figure in the creation of Lancôme’s first fragrances. Transparent and refined, it allows the preciously coloured elixirs encapsulated within to be exalted by light. A most precious case dressed in fine golden lines, an object of luxury and signature French refinement.
