Penhaligon's Elisabethan Rose
Thanks to Sali I was able to test Penhaligon's
Elisabethan Rose, it's described on the site as the cool, heady scent of roses in high summer: an effervescent appeal to the creative, artistic spirit as embodied in the English garden.
I was unable to locate any notes for this fragrance. On initial application it smelled a bit like nail polish remover but that went away in mere seconds. After a few minutes there is something in here reminds me a bit of Eau de Charlotte, there may be an incredibly tiny hint of blackcurrant bud in here or something similar. As this fragrance is so light, you really have to take a whiff of it but that too fades and you are left with a very fresh smelling rose.
While this is easily a year round fragrance, I'd prefer to wear this in warmer months from day to night. It's much lighter than most rose fragrances making this decant worthy but not unique enough to buy the entire bottle - unless it were on sale!
It retails for $85/3.3 oz. or $65/1.7 oz. at Penhaligons
