Voleur de Roses captures the chaos of a rose garden shattered by a thunderstorm. The rose notes are dark and spicy and rounded with plum. Patchouli captures the smell of rain, muddy earth, and lightning in the air. The name translates from French as "The Rose Thief," seeming to refer to how nature, with her destructive forces, has stolen back the rose from an idea of perfection—and created something entirely more perfect than what was there before.

Voleur de Roses was inspired by a collision of nature: the beauty of a rose garden and the destructive forces of a thunderstorm.
