For all of those ladies who don’t have time to stop and smell the roses, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bond No. 9 are introducing a bouquet in a bottle, Saks-en-Rose, a contemporary blend of rarely used topnotes-succulent dry dates and verbena-like lantana leaves, wrapped around a heart of rose.
There are thousands of varieties, but it is the pink rose — a symbol of grace and happiness — that is the key ingredient in the third scent venture between Saks Fifth Avenue and Bond No. 9.
Saks-en-Rose marks a departure from your grandmother’s rose. This is a self-possessed, future-oriented and multi-functional rose — beguiling on an evening out, informal over the weekend.
This garden in a bottle will cost you $215 for 100ml; $145 for 50ml
