Fragrance of the Month: Yardley London English Rose EDT

Pink roses have been symbolic with love, romance, youth and beauty for as long as Shakespeare’s words: “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet,” have been recited from books and spoken across theatre stages. It certainly explains why we still gravitate towards rosy coloured and scented perfumes, like Yardley London’s English Rose.

Flirty and romantic with an undertone of purity and strength, this eau is as multifaceted as the flower it’s named after. On first spritz the scent is fresh and green, bursting with notes of rose and geranium. Soon, creamy magnolia, violet and rosebud blooms blossom alongside fruity-floral cassis berries for an added layer of warmth, comfort and sunshine. Last but not least, an intimate and exhilarating blend of wood, spice and musk notes make their presence, giving the perfume depth and a hint of mystery. The overall effect is refreshing and light, velvety and soft, classic and clean, and everything Juliet alludes to when she speaks about her beloved Romeo.

Crafted with just as much love, albeit with none of the heroine’s heartbreak, this English Rose is comprised of 94 per cent naturally derived, vegan and cruelty-free ingredients. And like Shakespeare, the parfum’s scent and the brand’s legacy—which is celebrating 250 years of fine fragrance—have such timeless appeal that this is one rose that seemingly, wondrously, never stops blooming.

Yardley London English Rose EDT $18.99 for 50 ml, available at Shoppers Drug Mart.
