The rose at the heart of this fragrance is one that bears his name. “My wife, Pauline, created a wonderful birthday gift - a rose cultivated specially for me. This proved to be an inspiration for the fragrance,” says Paul.
[...] Antoine Maisondieu, the perfumer who worked with Paul on its creation explains: “I wanted to combine an airy quality with a soft, velvety feeling on the skin. I blended Paul Smith ScentTrek with Turkish rose oil and green tea, adding a sparking halo of violet and magnolia flowers. A woody accord, with touches of clear cedar, provides depth and structure, which along with soft musks, give it an addictive quality.”
Paul Smith Rose is available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum and in matching body products. (via paulsmith.co.uk, found via selfridges) According to thelondonpaper, it smells "fresh, light and fruitily rosy".
