Created in 1984, Elisabethan Rose is playful and wistful interpretation of the classic British rose. The bubbly head notes of geranium and aldehydes make this fragrance sing and dance while camomile, violet and of course rose swell the heart notes, filling your senses with the intoxicating aroma of bruised rose petals. The surprising base notes include musk, amber and sandalwood; further deepening the wonderful delicacy of the rose and emphasising its heady, cool and mysterious nature.
Imagine a premier cru champagne, frothy and gorgeously light, softly fizzing, shot through with heady rose scented bubbles. Effortlessly British, velvety garden roses after light summer rain, bruised petals giving up their intoxicating aromas. Chamomile, Violet and of course Rose swell the heart notes, filling your senses and the surprising base notes include musk, amber and sandalwood, deepening the wonderful delicacy of the rose, emphasising its heady, cool and mysterious nature.
Inspired by the Rose Garden at Sissinghurst in Cranford, Kent, famously cultivated and designed by Vita-Sackville West, the writer, and her husband, the diplomat and diarist Harold Nicolson, in the 1930s.
