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. 🙂
