EGLANTINE ROSE PARFUM ON CHIC VINTAGE BRIDES

What can I say about my favorite wedding blog Chic vintage Brides! Amy is always so generous with her creative writing talents. She is a blogger that actually writes her own content & does not simply post submissions. I very much enjoy visiting Chic Vintage Brides on a regular basis to see all of the wonderful historical images & to read her articles about what is trending for today’s bride.

I am beholden to this touching paragraph she wrote about her own personal experience with my Eglantine Parfum.

Please take a monument to visit Chic Vintage Brides to see my feature on Eglantine Rose Parfum & why not order a sample vial to see if you too can have this fun back to beauty experience.

Many thanks Amy!

Also, many thanks to Caroline Tran for the beutiful images!

Eglantine Rose parfum

Wearing Eglantine is such a luxury! It feels like a special occasion every time I open the box, elegant in its simplicity and so pretty with a pale pink lining; to see the gorgeous little french glass bottle (manufactured in the old world ways in Normandy, France) nestled within. Its gold rimmed neck is decorated with a tiny delicate pink ribbon and topped with the gorgeous glass globe stopper that gives it such an opulence and vintage charm. It makes me feel like one of the sirens from the silver screen, who in my favourite black & white movies always used to dab their perfumes so seductively on their pulse points. And it reminds me of when I was little, and my Mum would elegantly dab Chanel No 5 on to her wrists before going out, I used to love watching her do it. So now applying my perfume each morning is no longer a quick spritz and go, it is a luxurious ritual.

VALENTINES DAY PERFUME GIFTS TO CHERISH AND LOVE

With Valentines Day right around the corner, we have thoughts of love & relationships of all kinds. 

I remember a simpler time when Valentines Day was about buying those silly yet adorable paper valentines that you would bring to school & pass out to all in your classroom.

Now, we must buy expensive gifts for our special loved ones to prove our affections. So, if that be the case, my Eglantine Rose Parfum is the perfect gift for your loved one.

Or why wait for someone to gift you? How buying one of these beautiful bottles of heaven for yourself!

I am wearing this intoxicating scent myself everyday as it gives me pleasure all the day.

We have the beautiful glass globe stopper top French imported ½ oz bottles available for purchase & immediate delivery.

EGLANTINE ROSE PURE OIL PARFUM

The rose is a timeless metaphor for romance: Poets pen sonnets to its fragile beauty; musicians sing the praises of its perfection; artists are inspired to capture its radiance on canvas. Lovers have long relied on the rose’s ephemeral mystery for seduction, strewing petals in the bath and boudoir, signifying the pleasures to be had. The essence of the most timeless garden delight is now formulated in an unforgettable blend of dusky Arabian and tea roses, with a sparkling top note of blood orange. Finished with a deep, warm base of rich amber, incense notes and African musk, Eglantine lingers on the skin long into the night, a sensuous, sexy rose blend for today’s women.

Eglantine Rose Parfum is available for purchase in precious French made bottles on Erica Elizabeth Designs!

OCTAVIA ROMAN CROWN IS READY TO SHIP

Octovia is the first Roman crown in the Erica Elizabeth Collections. Following a visit to the Getty Villa in Malibu, I drew inspiration from Roman heads of state who adopted golden crowns as emblems of rank and honor. Then followed my gorgeous shoot with Stephanie Williams of This Modern Romance. I have enjoyed many sales of this beauty & now she is finally ready to ship in 1 to 2 weeks!

ERICA ELIZABETH DESIGNS READY TO SHIP

What an amazing 2014 wedding season this has been! Busy as bees over here filling orders while trying to make a few extra stock pieces that are ready to ship. The metal fabrication designs are the hardest to produce for rush orders due to the many processed of the production, not to mention the high skills that are involved from start to finish.

Shown here are a few of bride’s favorite headpiece design for the 2015 New Year wedding season, which are now ready to ship in 1 to 2 weeks.

I am also very pleased to announce that I have finally been able to fulfill one of my long time dreams, which is to produce a beautiful custom keepsake box for my headpieces.

All orders over $150.00 that fit in the box will be shipped in my pinstriped shadow paper box. Due to the large minimum order that was required, storage was an issue. A clever origami-folding box was designed that pops up into a refined strong walled box that will keep your headpiece safe & preserved to treasure for always.

Also, my Eglantine Parfum is ready to ship and rave reviews are starting to come in!

Many thanks to Caroline Tran for the beautiful photography!

CHOOSING YOUR BRIDAL VEIL

One of the most important roles of being a full service wedding accessory house is that complete lines of bridal veils are offered. Since a large portion of my sales come from veils, it has always been a vision of mine to create an informative page on my website to help brides understand the many choices available when choosing their veil.

So much thought goes into deciding what gown to wear so when it comes to choosing the veil, it is important that the veil is in proportion to the gown & the bride’s personality.

Of course I enlisted my gifted team Caroline Tran & Victoria Rothwell of Moira Design Studio to help with the details.

LAUNCH OF ERICA ELIZABETH DESIGNS EGLANTINE ROSE PARFUM

My Eglantine Rose Parfum has been a long time coming with a lot of attention to details. Branching out into the world of fragrance is something I knew I wanted to do after reading Justine Picardie’s The Legend & Life of Coco Chanel. Coco Chanel’s contribution to women’s fashion in the twentieth century cannot be overlooked, so I wanted to follow her footsteps in my own tiny way.

 Since everything is my wedding headpiece collections is made by hand, I was looking for something very special that I could offer to my brides, even after they marry, with the same design sensibility as my bridal accessories.

I have had to learned a new language as I trained my nose to detect the multiple layers that combine to create a pure perfume oil, encountering the vocabulary of top notes, base and what is called the heart — the middle note or very soul of a perfume.

Eglantine is a captivating blend of tea rose, gardenia and Arabian rose with a heady top note of blood orange.  Its deep, warm base notes of rich amber, incense and African musk linger on the skin long into the night.  Modern, fresh and sexy, this is a scent meant to seduce.  And be warned: this is not your grandmother’s rose perfume.

The provenance of the name, Eglantine, can be traced to the Middle English eglentyn and from Old French aiglantin.  Meaning “wild rose,” the term was coined in the 14th century to describe a particularly beautiful blushing rose growing wild in the European countryside.  My wish is to beguile all you blushing brides-to-be with the sensual joys of this lush, rosy scent.

Eglantine is now available for purchase in a gorgeous ½ oz. “crystal like” glass bottle with a globe sphere stopper that is manufactured in the old world ways in Normandy France.

Wholesale sales are welcome. Please inquire at Erica (at) ericaelizabeth (dot) com.

We recommend you try a sample vial first as returns are not permitted.

There are no international sales on fragrance.

So many thanks to Caroline Tran for her amazing photography & talented eye.

 Also to Victoria Rothwell of Design House of Moira

With Love,

Erica
