Allure is about danger, sharp intelligence, imagination, power - with a gentle side - and good legs. One would not necessarily want to live with such a person - the spirit being more sexy than the body.
I would even go so far as to call the Rosa Mutabilis the MILF of all roses. No girlishness here. It´s a grown-up rose, the equivalent to tousled hair and laughter lines. Slightly disheveled looking from the start, its colours change from yellow to apricot to pink. It´s intriguing.
If this rose was a woman, it would be Hanna Schygulla. Or Charlotte Rampling. More Romy Schneider in La Piscine than Jane and her youthful attitude. A certain weariness can be incredibly alluring.
The Rosa Mutabilis requires exquisite yet weathered garden furniture. French garden furniture is what you are looking for.
These Mathieu Matégot chairs are everything.
This is a late-night-party rose, so drink the leftovers and share your last cigarette and an illicit kiss with someone you adore.
