A walk through a rose garden, with a touch of geranium, patchouli, musk and fruits.
Raw Silk & Red Roses first came out as one of the Crimes of Passion. It was a bit like a self-imposed apprecenticeship piece. To show yourself (and the world) that you can make perfume, you have to do your own version of a classic, and this was ours.
Sarah chose a really rosy rose, a 1980s style scent, like a walk through an overgrown rose garden. She loves her rose fragrances, and although she had been dabbling with rose and violet, rose and herbs and rose and vetivert, she'd wanted to take the plunge with pure rose.
Her aim was "Wow! Roses!" but surrounding the rosy heart, you may also detect a handful of flowers, fruits and resins.
