FRAGRANCE FAMILY: FLORAL
Quintessential British fragrance house Atkinsons has reimagined the quintessentially British flower – the rose – with Rose in Wonderland.
Lusciously dewy, this stunning recent launch embraces every element of the rose – from petal to thorny stem via the earth it stands in. It’s one of what we’re calling ‘the new roses’, at The Perfume Society – designed to make even non-rose-lovers think again about this cornerstone of perfumery.
And unlike other roses you’ve worn before, this one stands out from the crowd: ‘a rose fragrance to wear and beware’, as Atkinsons put it.
A strong sharp blackcurrant bud softened by a rose dew accord ushers you on towards rosa Centifolia, earthy geranium and vetiver in the roots. An English garden in a bottle, it takes you away to lazy days lounging on lawns with rose bushes in bloom.
We think you’ll fall more than a little in love. (But just be careful not to fall down a rabbit hole, en route for Wonderland…)
Atkinsons Rose in Wonderland from £120 for 100ml eau de parfum
