La Fete des Roses by Caron c1936

La Fete des Roses (The Festival of Roses) by Caron was launched in 1936. Created by Ernest Daltroff.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like? It is a rich, floral fragrance for women with a dominant sweet rose note. It was based on blend of Bulgarian rose, May rose, and Damask rose with a dose of Anatolian carnation and geranium resting on a base of vanilla, musk and vetiver. Spicy and rosy...refined and elegant.
  • Top notes: geranium
  • Middle notes: Anatolian carnation, Bulgarian rose, May rose, Damask rose, lilac, iris, violet
  • Base notes: orris, vanilla, musk, vetiver


Presented in a bottle designed by Félicie Vanpouille. Two versions of this bottle exist, the original clear glass version and a luxury version which was released as a special collector's edition in 1949 which was given an all over gilded enamel finish.
