Much Ado About The Duke
Conforming to the pressures of his heritage (and pocket book) Duke Nelson snapped up London’s most coveted prize in the now Duchess Rose. Eccentric and uncommon, the Duke’s whimsical ambivalence animates society gossip (which is adamant that the marriage has yet to consummated...). A man of the arts, the Duke attracts both floral delicacy and rooted masculinity. An English hound – he is loyal to a fault but endlessly bounding after strangers. But flamboyancy isn’t a sin. He carries both an air of his wife’s peppery rose, and also the leathery woods of the hunt – all washed down with gin (as every gentleman should). The Duke is exotic, rich, ephemeral and decadent. Extravagant in his tastes and liminal in his inclination
An unconventional and eccentric scent, just like the Duke himself. A masculine rose, itself a contradiction, that captures the spirit of modern dandyism – dynamic and effortlessly chic. The sparkling, aromatic character of a spiced gin opens the scent, airy and clear. A handsome rose, ambivalent with woods and smoke, is amplified by a debauched and shameless touch of cumin. Suggestive and ambiguous.
