Perfumers and former fashionistas, Elise Juarros and Rosa Vaia introduced TUDOR, the final fragrance in Coquillete-Paris’ sextet at Pitti Fragranze 2014. When they began their Company in 2013, they decided only six perfumes were to be made; that all would reveal abit about their lives, travels and personalities. They made their debut with Herat, Moramanga, Sulmona and Sumaterra. Later that year Tan Tan followed. It is bittersweet to know that you will only create a limited number of scents; so they left the best for last.

As in every Coquilette Paris perfume there is a back story. Tudor takes its name from the "Tudor rose" the white and red rose that became the symbol of British union. Henry VII, Born to both Lancaster and York parents, took the crown in 1485, bringing an end to "The War of the Roses", a hundred year war that divided the country into two camps uder two colors; The House of Lancaster and The House of York. For Rosa and Elise, the history reminded them of struggle, resolution and the acceptance of the war within themselves. According to Rosa, "TUDOR reminds us that we should come to terms with our wounds and life’s obstacles, since these challenges keep us away from ourselves. It is a fragrance that frees us from fleeting artifices and reveals pure beauty. TUDOR is the sixth and final perfume of the collection. It is the last step of the journey, the most demanding: one that leads inside ourselves". (It is also the first time they have used a male model in an ad, as TUDOR is a rose fragrance for both genders).
TUDOR reveals an otherworldly beauty. Rose Petals are swept away by the autumn wind and fly in the night sky like fragrant stars. The land rises to meet it – a jumble of bushes, dark wood, forest roots, and earthy soil. Deep, enigmatic and penetrating notes that end on an amber accord.
Notes: Top: rosewood, Chinese geranium, lily of the valley; Heart: amber wood, benzoin, soil; Base: rosewood, benzoin, labdanum, ambergris, vanilla from Madagascar
