Anya's Garden launch Royal Lotus perfume

by Grant Osborne, 05th October, 2011

Anya's Garden's latest limited edition fragrance, Royal Lotus will be available from her website until October 15, 2011. In addition, a free sample of Royal Lotus will be included with an order of Anya’s 10-perfume sample set, also on sale for $60.

Anya McCoy, founder and perfumer of Anya's Garden says:

Royal Lotus perfume is a 21st Century-specific design, containing only one wildcard from the 20th Century [Clementine from the USA]. I realized as I was making modifications on the blue and pink lotuses, that several of my aromatics had royal names associated with them, so I changed the name from Purple Lotus to Royal Lotus. It is a sweet and beguiling perfume, with a citrus cocktail opening that evolves into a slightly smoky rich and luxurious floral. The smoke dissipates, and a seamless floral extravaganza unfolds for hours. The sandalwood, tonka and ambergris base is lush and smooth, like the feel of a royal silken garment.

A slight spray of this unctuous perfume in your hair will reward you with at least 24 hours of floral and coumarinic, sandalwoody pleasure.

      Wow! This will probably be richer and more enchanting than her other luxurious perfumes, and THAT is saying something!
