Elisabethan Rose

DSC01671 (2)

Penhaligon’s Elisabethan Rose (Penhaligon’s 1984) is especially rosy at first.  Elizabethan Rose is a rose in full Summer bloom – bright and cheerful.  It’s slightly creamy, with a few complimentary florals mixing with the predominant rose (chamomile, geranium, and violet).

In the late drydown Elisabethan Rose is very green in a 70’s or 80’s sort of way, with a slightly masculine bent. However, regardless of whatever notes play alongside it, rose predominants this elegant fragrance from start to finish.

Top notes: aldehydes and geranium.  Middle notes: chamomile, violet and rose.  Base notes: amber, musk and sandalwood.

I just keep thinking that the more things change the more they stay the same, for better and for worse…    I feel like that’s been a theme of this year up until now, but we’ll see.


We made it to the farmer’s market in our area.  It was fantastic!  I just need to find good recipes for fresh dill.  We bought a lot of it and I don’t want to waste it…  🙂

Until tomorrow.  🙂
