Imperial Rose Recipes

Rose Solid Perfume Blending Guide

Here are a few recipes to help you get started.

Hints: You can blend the solid perfumes in any order. Try varying the amount of each solid perfume too e.g. a lot more lemon and a little less amber. Sniff and adjust the blend accordingly. You are in control so experiment and find what feels right to your nose.

Tip: Try blending on paper with cotton buds. Just layer one solid perfume over the other as you would on your skin. This way if you make a scent you don't like, you won't need to wash it off.

We hope you have fun and enjoy these recipes. Please get in touch if you have any questions.

A MIDSUMMER TWILIGHT

Neroli

Imperial Rose

Tonka Bean

 

INSPIRATION
'A mystical fairy woodland where mischief is afoot.
As the sky darkens and twilight approaches, the forest comes to life with magical creatures.'

 

Neroli introduces the fragrance with a brightness to capture and entice. Just like the sunset it fades to give way to Imperial rose. The rose note adds a mysterious and seductive depth, with dark and spicy elements. Tonka bean in the base gives the feeling of warmth and creates the image of soft glowing lanterns in the darkening forest glen.

'A spectacular British summer's day spent picnicking on the lawn. Complete with gingham cloth topped basket, delightful finger sandwiches, cream cakes, and surrounded by elegant manicured gardens.'

 

The scent of Imperial rose sets the scene, symbolising England's national flower. Elegant jasmine radiates, conjuring up images of sunny weather and feelings of optimism. This floral blend feels full bodied, bold and classical. Fruity pear in the background hints at the orchard in the distance and the walled gardens beyond.

BABYLON

Peony

Imperial Rose

Amber Resin

 

INSPIRATION
'The grandeur of the hanging gardens of Babylon. Is it a myth or did it really exist? Dense, lush green leaves, spilling, cascading speckled with bright exotic blooms. The enticing and seductive flowers exude their nectar and aroma, casting its spell on those lost in the foliage.'

 

Fresh sweet peony draws you in leading to a hypnotic and intoxicating rose. Imperial rose adds boldness and abundance, a floral tapestry. Amber resin in the base creates opulence and intrigue and also a sense of closeness and humidity. The scent feels dynamic and alive with images of animals and birds playing in their habitat.

SCEPTRE & ORB

Virginia Cedarwood

Bergamot

Imperial Rose

 

INSPIRATION
'The coronation day of the queen. She walks towards the throne to accept her crown. Lords and ladies dressed in robes and finery can be seen throughout the cathedral. An exciting and monumental day.'

 

A scent with pomp. Virginia cedarwod is the main element in this scent. Its strong woody scent lets the mind imagine old church pews and carved wooden statues. Imperial rose reminds you of medieval England (Tudor Rose) and the history of the monarchy. Bergamot brightens up the scent adding a touch of modernity and excitement.

MASQUERADE

Iris

Neroli

Imperial Rose

 

INSPIRATION
'The crowded Venice masquerade has just begun. The guests wear masks and costumes in every colour, adorned with feathers, intricate lace and sumptuous fabrics. The waterways are filled with gondolas and lit by romantic candlelight. There is energy in the air, but who are the people behind the masks?'

 

Iris and imperial rose blend together to create a noble and aristocratic ambience. Iris (orris root) has been grown in Italy for centuries and symbolises royalty. Intoxicating imperial rose creates opulence, extravagance and intrigue. Citrus neroli complements by adding radiance and lift in the top notes.

AROUND TOWN

Iris

Bergamot

Imperial Rose

 

INSPIRATION
'A snowy winter's day just before Christmas. The town is bustling as people rush to get presents for under their tree. You're wrapped up in a thick woollen coat with a scarf twirled around your neck. It's icy cold outside but the lights of the shop windows make the atmosphere warm and full of spirit.'

 

A heady floral fragrance perfect for winter. Full bodied imperial rose creates warmth, festiveness and colour in the bleak snowy landscape. Powdery iris adds a metallic note that feels icy and cold. Fresh bergamot and iris mimic the frosty air as you go around town.
