October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Annick Goutal's Rose Absolue

In October, Annick Goutal perfumery honors Annick Goutal who passed away from breast cancer with Rose Absolue perfume. Pure, elegant, unassuming and feminine; Rose Absolue is the absolute essence of a rose. A single-flower fragrance that brings together the rarest roses from East and West; the Bulgarian, Turkish, Damask, May, Egyptian and Moroccan rose. During the month of October, Annick Goutal will donate 30% of Rose Absolue sales to Breast Cancer research.

Price: $140 for 1.7oz Eau de Parfum Spray, Available at Saks

It's not yet October, but I thought I'd go ahead and post this, since it is almost there. And I've tried Rose Absolue. It's pure rose, which isn't my thing, personally, no matter how sumptuous the rose (I turned down Montale's Roses Petals too, and hesitate to buy Patou's Joy over his Sublime). For rose lovers, however, this will be something to investigate.

On a side note, is it wrong to use breast cancer research contributions as a marketing device? Actually I think it's a stroke of genius. People shop; it's something they do anyway. Research centers partnering with private sector businesses, is perhaps the most intelligent way to bring the money where it's needed. It's a chick thing. :)
