La Rose Aime le Poivre
With its apothecary-shaped flask, the fragrance diffuser welcomes the spiced love between the pepper and the Damascus Rose. ‘Queen of flowers’ originally from Turkey, the Damascus Rose has been praised since Antiquity for the finesse of its scent and elegance. Historically celebrated from China to Persia, rose is a divine symbol. Equally rare and noble, pepper has been traded since Antiquity: a scarce commodity, it was used as a currency and is even mentioned in Roman figure Apicius’ book “De re culinarian libri”.
Pepper is known for its intense taste and stimulating medicinal properties. Similarily to its lover, the rose has been celebrated since ancient time for its stimulating power and aphrodisiac properties. Together they're known to help:
✓ Overcome anxiety, tension and sleep disorders,
✓ Soothe the nervous system and encourage letting go,
✓ Naturally stimulate, energize and invigorate.
In between the two families - Rosaceae and Piperaceae – there is no love lost. Stimulating, the pepper escalate the sweet, rich and opulent fragrance of the Rose. A spicy but soothing union.

With high-quality components, untreated rattan sticks, a recyclable cork stopper and 100% recycled and recyclable glass, each diffuser demonstrates Carrière Frères’ commitment to sustainability.
Handcrafted and made in France, each diffuser is filled with 100% natural alcohol from French beetroot. Its fragrance is a blend of natural raw and synthetic materials.
To limit the packaging’s environmental impact, no plastic or non-essential materials are used. Carrière Frères opts for a natural approach with boxes made from 100% recycled and recyclable FSC paper, labels made from FSC paper (40% recycled) and printing using vegetable-based inks.
Rattan sticks diffuse the perfume by capillarity for a constant and light diffusion.
On first use, for an immediate release, soak the rattan sticks in the bottle and flip them so that the scented part of the sticks is outside of the bottle. In order to obtain a continuous diffusion, flip the sticks during the first two weeks of use and then every four days until complete evaporation of the perfume. Changing the number of sticks allows to modify the intensity of the perfume.
Perfume diffusion will last about 8 to 12 weeks. This duration may vary depending on the size of the room where the room fragrance diffuser is located, the room temperature, the exposure of the diffuser to direct sunlight, and draughts, which increase the evaporation of the perfume.
