The Romance of the Rose

The Romance of the Rose


The Rose is perhaps one of the most celebrated flowers in perfumery, and also in love.

As we head towards the end of January and look forward to celebrating love and friendship for St Valentine’s Day on 14th February, my thoughts and olfactory desires are shifting from the comforting woody notes of winter, to the more uplifting fragrant notes of the rose.

So walk with me through an olfactory rose garden, if you will, for a tour of timeless and elegant rose scents that are equally as lovely to wear or to scent your home with.

We are celebrating the collection of rose perfumes created by Angela over the years. Floral notes hold a special place in our hearts, as we are surrounded by flowers each Sunday and the rose is a note that we hold especially dear.

Rose can be uplifting, comforting, sensual and elegant. It is gorgeous combined with both deeper sensual notes or lightened with elegant touches of feminine scents, the choice is yours.

So let's summon up some love in the midst of these bleak grey days and enjoy the romance of the rose together.


1. Columbia Rose

Our deepest rose fragrance, Columbia Rose is a rich and velvety rose perfume inspired by London's famously vibrant Columbia Road Flower Market in the East End.

Dusky and luscious crimson roses are lifted by a touch of violet, deepened by sandalwood and amber, resting on a shadowy base of aged patchouli.

With its dark and woody tones, this fragrance is also popular with men.


2. Moroccan Rose

Years later this perfume holds a special place in my heart. Moroccan Rose was uplifting and distinctive at a time in my life when I needed a boost.

Celebrating the pure essence of Moroccan Rose, rich and honeyed yet with a subtle muskiness which is natural to the rose make this perfume a timeless classic.



3. Rose Poudree

A delicate and ultra feminine rose fragrance inspired by an elegant boudoir, and reminiscent of the scent of a luxurious lipstick or make-up powder.

Gossamer rose petals layered with powdery iris, violet and heliotrope, resting on a base of soft musk, ambrette and smooth sandalwood of this ultra feminine fragrance.



4. Rose Sauvage

Inspired by the delicate notes of the briar or wild rose, this is a fresh and youthful rose fragrance that will bring a smile to your face.

Sparkling and dewy, this feminine fragrance blends wild rose with fruity top notes and a hint of mouthwatering red berries.

5. White Roses

Botanists, gardeners and seekers after the perfect rose fragrance all agree that the fresh green, dewy quality of this rose scent has an elegance and freshness not usually associated with rose.

Imagine a bouquet of white roses on a summer day, the true fragrance of dew spangled roses, on a soft green mossy base, a chic and modern scent.
