EGLANTINE ROSE PARFUM SOON TO BE AVAILABLE

I am finishing up a few last details before the launch of my Eglantine Rose parfum. This pure oil blend makes me absolutely insane! Every morning I look forward to getting ready for my day & applying a precious dab on my pulse points that sends me into pure bliss.

Eglantine is pure parfum oil, which is the most concentrated, long-lasting form of fragrance. It is also one of the most intimate forms of fragrance one can wear because it lacks the alcohol that is in eau de parfums and eau de toilets.

Immediately familiar and yet absolutely unique, Eglantine is the darker side of rose. 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.  Indulge your senses with this sumptuous bouquet, a decidedly sexy spin on the classic floral.

Very soon will be available on ericaelizabeth.com in a gorgeous ½ oz. / 8 ml glass bottle with a globe sphere stopper that catches light at every angle. This beautiful “crystal like” bottle is manufactured in Normandy France from a more than century old traditional glass making factory.  

-We recommend you try a 1 ml sample vial first as returns on fragrance products are not permitted.

-We are sorry to say that there are no international sales on perfume!

-Arrives beautifully package and ready to treasure within 1 week by post Priority mail.

NEW ERICA ELIZABETH DESIGNS ROSE COLLECTIONS 2015

I am so happy to present a few of my favorite images from my recent photo shoot with Caroline Tran, featuring beautiful gowns from both Sara Janks & Jenny Yoo. It was so kind of both these talented designers to lend us there beautiful dresses that go so well with my headpiece & veil collections.

This year’s inspiration was based on my coming venture into the world of scents. After reading Justine Picardie’s Coco Chanel The Legend and the life, I knew I had to develop a pure oil perfume that I would wear myself on a daily basis. I knew the moment I decided to do this, what my scent would be based on, the ever classic & seductive English rose.

Eglantine Rose Parfum

For generations, my family history has been entwined with the wonders of the garden, and roses have always held a special fascination.  My father was a particularly gifted gardener; once retired, word of his talent for cultivating exquisite roses spread and found him designing cutting gardens to grace the yards of Hollywood celebrities.

My dear father’s talents have inspired me to develop a strong passion for roses, in particular the very fragrant English rose. The English rose was always on my mind while designing this season’s collections. You will see handmade silk flower crowns in delicate soft blush colors, romantic long French lace trimmed veils & delicate fashioned crowns in my 2015 wedding season collections.

I’m delighted to contribute to this shared family history with the creation of Eglantine, a pure perfume oil that’s a sophisticated, modern take on the timeless floral scent. To create a private label perfume that captured this intoxicating garden smell, I collaborated with a master perfumer. After extensive testing and many formulations, we were able to create the signature scent so cherished by my family – the rose, reimagined, with a darker floral heart.  

My goal was to create a custom perfume oil with the same design sensibility as my bridal accessories, a captivating scent that aligns with this most romantic time in a woman’s life.  Science tells us that our sense of smell holds the most powerful memories and triggers emotions that last a lifetime.  My wish is for you to build your special moments and make them unforgettable with Eglantine.

Sample vials will be available for purchase soon!

With love,

Erica

Many thanks to Theresa Huang & her adorable team on hair & makeup and the beautiful Anjelina Afanasyeva from Next.

STEPHANIE WILLIAMS & JENNY YOO SHOOT

When asked to design a collection of silk flower crowns for a shoot by Stephanie Williams of This Modern Romance with Jenny Yoo of New York it required no thought to say yes! I love working with Stephanie. She is a bit of a master at creating styled shoots filled fun and whimsy.

From the always-present talented KC Whitkamp on hair and makeup, to the adorable Susan from Peony and Plum on floral designs, the main focus was on the amazing gowns from Jenny Yoo. Jenny’s sister Ellen organized the most beautiful shoot, along with Stephanie, to showcase their brilliant Nabi dress design with clever front and back panels that can be raised and wrapped to create many different dress designs. Available in many shades of gemstone colors, I had so much fun creating hand pressed silk flower crowns in luscious hand dyed silks to compliment these wonderful gowns.

 Feast your eyes on a few of these beautiful images that Stephanie Williams captured. I especially love this first one with the bride kissing the horse in the lavender field!
