Just in: Indus by Ormonde Jayne, an homage to roses grown around the Indus river valley in Pakistan. These roses have a heavenly sweet aroma. The flowers have to be harvested before dawn in mid-spring, to preserve the fragrance. It’s an ancient trade, dating back to the times of Silk route merchants. Amazingly the roses are still grown and harvested in very much unchanged way. The note of fabled Indus rose in this perfume is framed with delicious tart nuances of Armenian plum, Chinese patchouli and a drop of lychee.
