Volume 19: Le Premier Mai, May Rose

Volume 19: Le Premier Mai, May Rose

As we celebrate “le premier mai” or “the first of May,” we look to spring and all of the season’s beautiful creations.  Inspired by the fragrance and vibrancy of the natural garden, May Rose captivates all of your senses. 

The May Rose is picked in the Southern French town of Grasse and cultivated for its opulent and sweet scent. As the signature ingredient in many fragrances, the rose is picked just after it blossoms during the first few days of May to mark a celebratory tradition dating back to the 16th century.
