Designed to engage the root chakra, Le Quatrième pays homage to our ancient connection with the earth. Known as the Muladhara in Sanskrit, the root chakra constitutes the border between our animal and human consciousness. Like the sturdy roots of a tree, this chakra (our most physical energy center) is the stem of life, the smoldering origin of sexuality. Located at the southern-most tip of the spine, Muladhara is also the chakra of scent, our most primal sense. Rum is a soft, smooth introduction to this dense, smoky-sweet scent. Tobacco is a slightly more obtrusive texture, a green, sweet, ripe facet. Myrrh is remarkably bright, a golden curlicue of smoke spiraling heavenwards. Indonesian patchouli marries the rich verdancy of tobacco and the searing smoke of myrrh, marrying both effects in one note. Peru balm is aromatic, a resinous, herbal segue into the bittersweet viscous flow of honey. Vanilla subtly underscores the more strikingly textured aspects of this scent, throwing their starker shape into relief against it’s creamy, satin expanse. Plum is a final, savory-sweet flourish, a deeply tangy note that instill energy, even at the tail-end of this fragrance. Le Quatrième focuses the root chakra, resulting in a balance between the sensual and instinctual, personal magnetism and personal control. Grounding, exotic, lush and passionate: with the energy of the earth surging through your body, you hold the key to your desires.

About the Brand
As the granddaughter of Marcel and Helene Rochas, Pauline Rochas grew up steeped in the legacy of the Rochas fashion and fragrance house. Her grandmother immersed Pauline in the Rochas heritage and philosophy, and the iconic Rochas fragrances became the springboard that propelled Pauline’s love of scent and her leap into the world of perfumes.
While our ultimate strength lies within ourselves, the power of scent to fuse mind, body and spirit is undeniable. From this inspiration Rochas created a lifestyle brand as intricate layers of an evolving Sacred Universe, unifying the senses to harmonize our physical and spiritual bodies through the art of fine perfumery.
Rochas collaborated with Carole Beaupre to conceptualize The Seven Collection by Coolife. Displaying Rochas’ modern holistic approach to perfumery, the collection is influenced by the seven Chakras of ancient Ayurvedic wisdom that harness vital energy centers through which our lifeforce flows, and draws upon legendary Shamanistic and medicinal uses of precious aromatic raw materials.
Fueled by her passionate belief in the power of scent as a means of artistic expression, Rochas has worked with some of the most creative and sought-after perfumers in the world and evolved the line to include seven compelling fragrances with exclusive blends of luxurious, rare and minimal ingredients sourced meticulously from around the globe.
With a goal to help people navigate our stressful world , feel more energized and reconnect to the earth, Rochas’ unique fragrant vision with Coolife goes far beyond skin-deep and transcends mere adornment. Coolife hopes to unleash the vitality of the seven Chakras and nurture the complete being.
