– Pretty, romantic, edgy…there’s a rose for everyone
Look around you and chances are you’ll find something touched by the rose – be it in a gloriously scented candle, rose perfumes, or even a trellis of colourful climbers. With a history dating back over 35 million years, it’s fair to say that roses have an enduring appeal.
Our love for roses show no sign of slowing down. The flower is Google UK’s most searched fragrance ingredient in the past year, with over 50,000 searches each month. And the newest crop of modern rose fragrances offers something for everyone, whether your tastes run to the luminous and airy or something thornier, darker and altogether more Gothic. There’s never been a better time to stop and smell (and wear) the roses.
Keep on reading to discover spring’s latest rosy launches along with the rose perfumes the GH beauty team are spritzing this season.
British-brand Parterre is a prime example of ‘slow perfumery’, a thoughtful approach that considers the ingredient’s provenance, ethical sourcing and environmental impact. Key ingredients for its fragrances are grown and distilled at the brand’s Keyneston Mill botanical estate (it’s also open to the public).
For A Tribute To Edith, co-founder Julia Bridger longed to capture the vibe of Jazz Age nightclubs. “It’s sophisticated, it’s rich, it’s glamorous. But it’s also slightly edgy and not too sweet,” she tells GH.
In it you’ll find Keyneston Mill’s geranium oil which has the velvety sumptuousness of rose but with a green-citrusy pop.
