MUST HAVE: Penhaligon's The Coveted Duchess Rose

The Penhaligon's Portraits collection is a tribute to the aristocratic English spirit that embodies the ideas of establishment, humour and provocation. Each scent in this collection is named after a member of the fictional Portrait family and their scandalous exploits.

The Coveted Duchess Rose is a fun fragrance that seeks out the frivolity of life. This Eau de Parfum showcases a not-so-innocent fresh rose blended with a daring note of mandarin and an unexpected musky wood.

A fresh, sweet Rose — ready for the picking.
Ever since her recent marriage (anything but a bed of roses) our demure Duchess is urgently desirous of desire.
Her bosom is aching for release from the corsets of Victorian life, she dreams of nothing but Paradise Regained, again and again.
When one’s husband is at the theatre every evening, one does become terribly bored….

Her Fragrance
Oh, heavenly joy!
As pure as the first rain. As crisp and sparkling as a chilled Rosé.
The sweetest rose whose fresh innocence, and general constitution is without compare.
But by golly… quelle surprise… these corporeal, woody notes seem to reveal indiscreetly something else. Something that French women might wear. At night. In the dark.
When delicacy takes on an Epicurean allure.
