My Eglantine Rose Parfum has been a long time coming with a lot of attention to details. Branching out into the world of fragrance is something I knew I wanted to do after reading Justine Picardie’s The Legend & Life of Coco Chanel. Coco Chanel’s contribution to women’s fashion in the twentieth century cannot be overlooked, so I wanted to follow her footsteps in my own tiny way.
Since everything is my wedding headpiece collections is made by hand, I was looking for something very special that I could offer to my brides, even after they marry, with the same design sensibility as my bridal accessories.
I have had to learned a new language as I trained my nose to detect the multiple layers that combine to create a pure perfume oil, encountering the vocabulary of top notes, base and what is called the heart — the middle note or very soul of a perfume.
Eglantine is a captivating blend of tea rose, gardenia and Arabian rose with a heady top note of blood orange. Its deep, warm base notes of rich amber, incense and African musk linger on the skin long into the night. Modern, fresh and sexy, this is a scent meant to seduce. And be warned: this is not your grandmother’s rose perfume.
The provenance of the name, Eglantine, can be traced to the Middle English eglentyn and from Old French aiglantin. Meaning “wild rose,” the term was coined in the 14th century to describe a particularly beautiful blushing rose growing wild in the European countryside. My wish is to beguile all you blushing brides-to-be with the sensual joys of this lush, rosy scent.
Eglantine is now available for purchase in a gorgeous ½ oz. “crystal like” glass bottle with a globe sphere stopper that is manufactured in the old world ways in Normandy France.
We recommend you try a sample vial first as returns are not permitted.
