Rosa Rugosa - Rubber Incense



To release perfume for a long time without burning, using electricity or refills. Rubber Incense is a kind of high-tech version of a classic lavender sachet, designed to perfume small spaces like closets, dressing rooms or car interiors. The idea originated from candle prototypes scented with Saint des Saints perfume hidden in Frédéric Malle’s closet. These candles emitted such a marvelous fragrance that opening the closet became a true pleasure.

Rubber Incense was born, a 100% recyclable plastic rubber.

The dry, cold, almost astringent-like scent of these wild rose bushes which grow against the wind on the Atlantic coast. The reconstitution of the fragrance of these ancestral roses was developed by Carlos Benaïm “au nez”, just by using his nose, much like how an artist would design an object.
