FAMILY: FLORIENTAL
TOP NOTES: rose
HEART NOTES: Damask rose, violet, clove bud
BASE NOTES: patchouli, sandalwood, amber, musk
Columbia Rose is a rich, dark and velvety rose fragrance created by award-winning perfumer Angela Flanders. It blooms with an exquisitely opulent bouquet of dusky and luscious crimson roses, suffused with an audacious whisper of elusive violet.

The heart of Columbia Rose belongs to sensual layers of resinous ambers, yielding to velvet textured sandalwood, before surrendering to a seductive base of rakishly aged patchouli. A characterful and passionate rose which invites you to explore the depths of its raw beauty with abandon… Mysterious, definite and a just a little edgy, Columbia Rose seeks inspiration from the place Flanders fell in love with over 30 years ago on the now famous Columbia Road Flower Market in East London, where her perfumery has been a fragrant jewel ever since.
