Master perfumer Dominique Ropion concocted this scent with a dominant Turkish Rose Essence and Patchouli heart atop a sensual base of Benzoin, Cinnamon, Sandalwood, Musk and Frankincense. It is, as the brand describes, a "modern classic."
Portrait of a Lady is a modern, elegant and unusual expression of the Victorian novel, its heroine, Isabel Archer, her fate and the quest for freedom. She smells of dark roses, mystical and intense.
- The fragrance is intensified by the warmth of your body. Make sure to apply in the creases of your knees and elbows for a longer-lasting, stronger scent.
- Do not rub or sab the skin after applying as this breaks down the fragrance, causing it to wear off more quickly.
- If you apply the fragrance to your wrist wrists, be sure to reapply after frequent hand-washing, as this will rinse off the scent.
- Replace the fragrance after 12 months. Most perfumes expire within a year and will lose the integrity of the original scent.
