Penhaligon’s Duchess Rose | Vegan alternative | No.612
Main accords : Rose, musky, woody, citrus, floral, powdery
The Duchess; she is the essence of rose. The first sharp tang of the petals mixed with the bright green of the freshly cut stem. Goes on rose, stays rose but with a green freshness that is wicked and keeps on delivering. The initial whiff is naïve, yet it quickly becomes seductive. She’s sweet, yet spicy. Fresh and breezy, yet rich and warm… She’s an enchanting paradox in a bottle. But damn she’s unreachable. That’s my last Duchess painted on the wall. Looking as if she were still alive. She had a heart – how shall I say? -Too soon made glad! Oh, sir, she smiled, no doubt Whene’er I passed her but who passed without much the same smile? This grew; I gave commands. Then all smiles stopped together – My Last Duchess, Robert Browning.
