Roses are Back, Violets are too, Floral Lovers Form a Queue

Word on the street is that floral fragrances are making a comeback. Traditional scents of Rose and Violet are set to be two of the freshest fragrances for Spring 2019.

Here at I LOVE, we aren’t surprised to hear that these vintage fragrances are making a revival. We’ve long been fans of these floral classics and believe that with a carefully-chosen and complimentary combination of top, heart and base notes, they can hold their allure in the modern day.

 

Roses are Making a Comeback

There’s no denying the romantic allure of roses and that’s why they’ve remained a timeless classic. It even has the royal accolade of being Queen Victoria’s favourite fragrance which just demonstrates the timeless beauty of rose.

With that said, rose fragrances tend to get a bad reputation. People often associate rose fragrances with the musky days of yesteryear. With a few uplifting changes, rose can be revitalised for 2019. And that’s exactly what we plan to do…

 

I LOVE English Rose Signature Scent Trio

 

The English Rose fragrance in our Signature collection offers a fresh take on the classic rose scent. With top notes of bergamot, pear and green accord, English Rose greets you with  sweet and crisp fragrances for a lively first impression.

Once the top notes fade, the heart notes of rose, orris and jasmine start to bloom. Unfolding like a bouquet of freshly cut flowers, this English Rose fragrance offers a lively yet delicate take on the classic Rose.

Long after the fruity and floral fragrances are gone, you are left with the heart-warming base notes of vanilla, musk, amber and patchouli. These warm and luxurious musky base notes add a touch of nostalgia to this perfume to evoke feelings of happiness and create the perfect Rose fragrance for Spring 2019.

Reaffirming our Love for Violet

The delicate and powdery scent of violet has long been associated with vintage and old-fashioned perfumes. It's a floral scent that's often overlooked. Yet, it's one that can be so magical and graceful.

That's why we are here to modernise violet and provide a fresh alternative to this well-known sweet and woody fragrance.

 

I LOVE Violet Dreams Signature Scent Trio

 

 

With dreamy opening notes of bergamot, green apple, kumquat and parma violets, it’s evident that our Violet Dreams signature fragrance puts a sweet spin on this classic powdery scent.

These ethereal and fresh top notes lead to a romantic floral heart of white lily, jasmine and violet. Offering bursts of flowers, our Violet Dreams is a euphoric floral fragrance, unlike the powdery violet scents you may be familiar with.

All of this then comes together to rest on a heavenly pillow of patchouli, vanilla, candyfloss and dry flowers. The candyfloss adds a sweet and playful edge to this violet fragrance, helping to keep it fresh for the modern day.
