Paestum Rose is a scent of dark and dried out things, of fruits and flowers (blackcurrant, osmanthus, rose) and woods (myrrh, patchouli, cedar) in their twilight phases. Itís a dusty draught of cinnamon and incense. And if comparing it to potpourri didnít sound like a backdoor insult Ė Bertrand Duchaufour probably isnít even capable of suburban twee Ė I'd use it here to get at the spicy, desiccated, compact quality of its charm.
