Damascena by Keiko Mecheri Perfume. Introduced in 2000, Damascena brings together three intense floral notes and adds warm, sensual undertones to
produce an unforgettable scent. It combines three rose cultivars: the titular Damascena rose, the May rose and the Dades rose. Grown in Turkey, Damascena roses have an intense and slightly spicier aroma than their common garden cousins. May roses are grown near Grasse, the perfume capital of Europe, producing the same iconic rosy ingredient present in
Chanel No. 5. Grown in Morocco, Dades roses offer a heady and mildly honeyed scent. Musk finishes this fragrance with its characteristic warm and earthy essence.
Producing over 60 niche fragrances since 1998, the Keiko Mecheri label was originally founded as Bazaar Des Senteurs. At first, Keiko and Kamel Mecheri crafted body care products and scented candles. After releasing Hanae, Te En and Loukhoum, the company shifted its focus to perfumes. Today, its offerings are created by Keiko and fellow perfumer Yann Vasnier.
