Originally launched in 1860, White rose became a legend at the beginning of the 20th century as the signature fragrance of Aleksandra Fedorovna Romanova of Russia, born Alix of Hesse and of the Rhine. Next to the grand matriarch sat her beloved bottle of White Rose in a beautiful bespoke bottle, today housed in the Tsarskoe Selo Museum in St Petersburg.
White Rose de Alix faithfully revives the romantic essence of its predecessor, with a ravishing update of the palette of ingredients. Blending the quintessential brightness of white rose with the sweet-citrus notes of raspberry and lychee, the fragrance’s opening radiates ethereal seduction. The warm chypre harmony of patchouli and white musk delivers sensual depth, whilst a bouquet of peony, freesia and jasmine petals lend shimmering garden freshness. Precious stigmas from the autumn flowering saffron crocus suffuse the softest warmth and distinctive golden colour.
