ChauganOver 2500 years ago, a noble sport for warriors was born in the Orient. Chaugan was invented in Persia, and there is evidence that it was played at the time of King Darius the Great (522- 486 B.C.). It soon became the preferred pastime of the King and a sport admired by all. The game’s appeal lived on through the centuries, as chaugan spread to Arabia, Tibet, China, Japan, Egypt, and then to India in the 14th century, finally reaching England after 1850.
Chaugan’s noble heritage takes us back in time to a past that is the stuff of legends, a sophisticated Orient where princes set the tone for refined living. The palaces, their architecture as finely wrought as jewels, are fragrant with delicate perfumes; the draperies swing in the warm breeze caressing figures reclining on plush silk carpets. The women groom themselves, awaiting the return of the warriors: they drape their bodies in silk and adorn themselves with precious jewels, in an atmosphere perfumed with veils of incense...
Chaugan’s spirit and elegance has survived through the ages, never losing its original values. Naming a perfume after this unique sport is paying sincere homage to it.
La Rosée desThe unique personality of La rosée des jardins d’Ispahan lies undoubtedly in its supremely addictive base notes. The milky orange blossom extends its reassuring, enveloping notes, rendered warmer by a pulse of vanilla. This extreme femininity is infused by precious woods that temper the initial gourmandise: oud, powerful and generous; sandalwood, evoking distant lands; and a strong burst of leather and dry wood. The last two notes at the core of this fragrance express its roots, stretching back to a distant past shared with chaugan. They are the ultimate signature of this vibrant perfume’s strong personality.
The woman who wears this fragrance is easy to picture: haughty, beautiful and independent, but also charming in her fragility, her delicate femininity. And when she walks past, La rosée des jardins d’Ispahan spreads behind her a delicate and mysterious wake.
