Before the princess cut, the Asscher cut, or even the round brilliant cut, there was the rose cut. This method of cutting a diamond, popular in the 1500s, was meant to mimic the progressively unfolding layers of the rose. Most common in antique diamonds, the rose cut doesn't so much reflect a fiery light as emanate a soft warmth—and so it is with Rose Cut, the newest perfume from Parisian jeweler Ann Gérard. Rose Cut goes on with the lightest fizziness of champagne and the boozy glow of a rum note before evolving into a dark red rose accented with cinnamon spice and woods. Rose Cut is as soft and warm as a cashmere wrap. Notes include aldehydes, rum, pink pepper, rose, peony, patchouli, vanilla, oakmoss, and benzoin absolute.
Ann Gérard is a Paris-based jeweler with modern-classic jewelry designs and a line of four blockbuster perfumes. She created her fragrances in collaboration with renowned perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour. Learn more at www.anngerard.com.
