The rose at the heart of this fragrance bears Paul Smith’s name. It was cultivated and given as a gift from Paul’s wife for his birthday. This proved to be an inspiration for a fragrance. The Paul Smith rose is a potently fragrant, cochineal pink bloom, with a tight peony centre and full outer centre. It was first presented in 2006 at the Chelsea Flower Show.
No blooms are harvested, crushed and distilled--instead the living flower is isolated in a glass bell and equipment ‘inhales’ the scent. The rose’s scent has been blended with Turkish rose oil and green tea with a sparkling halo of violet and magnolia flowers. A woody accord, with touches of cedar, provides depth and structure which, along with soft husks, give it an addictive quality.
A rose by any other name might be something you expect... Rose by Paul Smith is something altogether different. Fresh and individual, modern and memorable.
