    I believe you'll find more Anglophilia in Italy, where both male clothing and care/fragrance products in a conservative style frequently rely on british trad imagery (and actual brand names). I don't find Equipage or even MdM/Jicky particularly English myself. Lavender, yes, but Jicky has that classic French dirtyness unthinkable for the Victorian English and I can't evemn picture the Coumarin load of MdM in a Brit frag of that time.

    I assume Tea for Two would be one since it's a French fragrance with an English name. Also, to go along with the_good_life's Italian idea, Lorenzo Villoresi's Wild Lavender used to be called Inglese.
