Bosquet d’Apollon by Rosine c1922

Bosquet d’Apollon by Rosine: launched in 1922. The name means "The Grove of Apollo" and represents Versailles.

The Grove of Apollo, 1922, referring to Louis XIV, Paul Poiret, used a pattern shown in the Salon d'Apollon at Versailles: the face of the Greek god of light circled by rays. Fascinated by this prosperous period, Poiret organized several receptions around the XVIII century with the rise of the small king.

Fragrance Composition:

I have no published notes on this perfume. "all the foliage, the verdure there, after a rain, the scent that comes from the grass and the leaves as you crush them underfoot in walking."

So what does it smell like? It was a green floral fragrance for women.
  • Top notes: green leafy notes
  • Middle notes: floral notes
  • Base notes: myrtle


Fate of the Fragrance:
