Rosebud is for those who love the scent of garden roses, not the synthetic versions. This is carefully constructed with natural constituents of rose, to blend rose Centifolia and Damask rose. (Roses have roughy 400 constituents, although not all are detectable through smell).
There are top, heart and base notes in this perfume, but not obviously so as it is designed as a linear scent, so the rose is apparent from the first spray to the dry-down. It opens with a faint ‘green’ rose and a few seconds later, begins to fill out. The different aspects of rose unfurl over the next few minutes. The lighter, slightly lemony and geranium aspects lead into the denser sweet myrrh and vanilla notes. The initial rose-petal freshness evolves until it becomes a full, velvety rose, when the perfume is warmed by the skin. It dries down to a soft, almost snuggly, rose and this final aspect is deeper and a little longer in the Pure Perfume, but the Eau de Parfum lasts very well.
Rosebud has very little spice, for a heavier, spicy perfume, with a prominent rose: Aroma Borealis is very deep and rich; Pavlova has rose with a sandalwood base and Elfin Glen has rose amongst the bluebells and other wild-flowers. For another light, clean floral, Freesia is a popular scent.

Pure Perfume/Extrait is a stronger dilution at roughly 25-32%.
Concentration varies between perfumes, some suit a higher percentage than others.
The 10ml is in a clear, screw top bottle, if in an oil dilution, a roller-ball bottle is supplied. All other sizes are in spray bottles.
All sizes are available in an oil base, rather than alcohol, this will make the scent more intimate; it will sit close to the skin, but lasts about 8-10 hours. We use golden jojoba oil as this is the closest to skin sebum and is least likely to cause any skin irritation. Perfume in oil comes in the same bottles as the ethanol based ones, or a roller-ball bottle if you prefer. Just select oil option with the size and concentration you want: for instance EdP 50ml and Oil option.
Available sizes: 10ml, 30ml and 50ml
