In the language of flowers, the wild rose (Églantine in French) symbolizes poetry. Its porcelain pink flower buds emerge like a beautiful mirage amid brambles and underwoods. It is the ancestor of the rose bush found in our tamed gardens. Also referred to as "dog rose", it has grown naturally in our forests since ancient times. Celebrated by illustrious poets, it has also adorned the buttonholes of laborers.

THE ROSE OF POETS


The flower of poets, the wild rose, with its frail, graceful petals and wild yet vulnerable personality, is the muse of many works. The Floral Games were created in Roman times to honor the goddess Flora. During this
festival, young women improvised poems and received wild flower crowns as prizes.


Hoisted to the status of royal academy by Louis XIV in 1694, the Academy of Floral Games is a literary society still in existence today. Every year it rewards the finest poets with five golden or silver flowers: violet, wild rose , marigold, amaranth and lily. Many great French authors have won floral prizes, including Pierre de Ronsard, Voltaire, the young Victor Hugo, who received one of his first prizes at the age of 17, Chateaubriand and François Fabre d´Églantine.

“I asked him which way to take He held a lute in one hand, In the other a bunch of wild roses."”

- "L'ÉGLANTINE" -
BY FRAGONARD



"L'Églantine" by Fragonard, a creation signed by Karine Dubreuil:

"The wild rose is a small, fragile and fleeting flower. Its highly delicate petals wither very quickly. During the creation process, I kept the idea of a wild garden in mind, evoking strolls in the forest, stumbling upon this shy flower on your way. Of course, it remains a rose, but I added some transparency to it by combining its classic notes with little semitones to create lightness.

L’Églantine by Fragonard is a rose fragrance with "petal-like" notes, lending it a fresh, natural personality. And although light in themselves, the notes are upheld by white musks, in perfect harmony with the heart notes of wild rose and raspberry. Its "petal" dimension lends the fragrance grace and subtlety."
