Somewhat dry, this scent echos its namesake in Italy.
I imagine it to be sunny, warm and mellow,
although I have never been;
cool in the dusty shadows.

Like a sumptuous tapestry, the perfume unfolds.
The scent of the rose is slowly revealed
from the depths of many colors.
Pepper and coriander, peony and currant buds;
flowers and spices amuse and bewilder.
Traveling through time with this delightful elixir.

Paestum Rose was created by perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour
and is designated as a unisex scent.
The notes include davana, cinnamon, black pepper, pink pepper,
coriander, black currant buds, Turkish rose, peony, incense,
osmanthus, elemi, tea, papyrus, benzoin, myrrh, opoponax,
vetiver, patchouli, cedar, wenge wood, amber and white musk.
