Eau Illuminée was inspired by the beauty, light and physicality of San Francisco and the Marin Headlands, a protected area north of the city, via the Golden Gate Bridge. The Headlands are bordered by the Pacific ocean and San Francisco Bay. The area is reminiscent of the “garrigue’ in southern France with a similar climate and vegetation.
Eau Illuminée opens with cool and refreshing rays of citrus.The fragrance warms as it progresses, much as the sun warms the day, evolving into an sumptuous and aromatic eau fraiche.
Eau Illuminée is aristocratic and classically refined as the ‘little black dress’ or the perfect white shirt. An elegant and timeless fragrance.
The Creators: DelRae Roth / Michel Roudnitska
“Eau Illuminée is the new modern classic...”
"My scent fern fantasy revealed itself in Parfums DelRae’s Eau Illuminée. The perfume’s surprise is orris, its scent reminiscent of violets and frozen carrots, and when this is inserted into a fougère accord it creates a curious illusion – once bergamot and lavender quiet down and mossy woods linger on my skin, I smell ferns from a rain-drenched Estonian forest."
