Fragrance: Penhaligon’s ‘Elisabethan Rose’

Penhaligon's Elisabethan Rose perfume fragrance edt


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.


Top Notes: Aldehydes, Geranium

Heart Notes: Camomile, Violet And Rose

Base Notes: Musk, Amber And Sandalwood

My Thoughts

Be still my beating heart, Penhaligon’s Elisabethan Rose is a dream. I am a huge fan of Penhaligon’s perfumes, from their classics which are over 100 years old, to their modern creations, everything they do is beautiful, well-considered and unique. They tell stories with their fragrances and somehow they make their classics modern, and their latest innovations classic. Impressive, but when you really get down to the day-to-day nitty gritty, they are fragrances I really want to wear, day in, day out. I’m not the only one, my boyfriend is a huge fan of them too! Penhaligon’s Elisabethan Rose is one of my favourite rose perfumes ever, it has a mix of red rose headiness, but also fresh, crisp florals and a hint of green. It’s old meets new in the best possible way.

Penhaligon’s Elisabethan Rose is available at Penhaligon’s, Fortnum & Mason and House of Fraser.
