Exhibition « Secrets of the Rosa Centifolia »

Get out your diaries! The Rosa Centifolia, the ultimate scented flower, is on display until 5 July at L’Occitane en Provence Museum located in Manosque. Discover the true story of this sublimely Provencal flower.
By Justine Fiordelli

Perfume-lovers, take note! The Rosa Centifolia rose is currently on display in all its glory at the L’Occitane Museum via a series of photographs taken by two photographers, Richard Romenville and François-Xavier Emery. Throughout the exhibition, visitors are invited to discover the main processing steps of this so delicate and feminine flower, used in the creation of L’Occitane fragrances.

Rosa Centifolia has place of honor in this exhibition. Grown with passion by Emmanuelle Ravel in Roumoules on the Valensole Plateau, it calls on many skills. Its petals are harvested at sunrise to preserve their freshness and are then transported to the Crieppam, the French fragrant plants research organization, where they become, after distillation, rose water, a divine substance used in the creation of precious perfumes and cosmetics. A process that is perfectly illustrated throughout this exhibition by Richard Romenville and François-Xavier Emery.
