A Dozen Roses New Fragrances: Shakespeare in Love, Gold Rush, Iced White


Those who did not get enough roses this spring can anticipate three new rose fragrances to discover this summer. A Dozen Roses, a niche fragrance brand, is launching three new fragrances, Shakespeare in Love, Gold Rush and Iced White, on July 17th.

The collection is described as, “luxurious, delightful and inspiring, utilizes rose essence as never imagined. Perfumers were given free reign to create the fragrances in the collection based on original artwork and the emotion of roses that inspired them. The results are unique artisanal scents unlike any other: fragrances that are artwork unto themselves. Each uniquely original fragrance is imbued with 100% natural rose absolute essence wrapped in a complex, sophisticated, and modern creation.”

Shakespeare In Love
“A pure lasting romance. Warm, wonderful, memorable. A Dozen Roses Shakespeare in Love hugs you with jasmine, gardenia and fresh pear that blend to creamy woods and vanilla. At the heart a beautiful blush rose and A Dozen Roses signature rose absolute.”

Gold Rush
“A rush of ecstasy. Sexy, rich, wild. A Dozen Roses Gold Rush is an intoxicating combination of blackberry, neroli and ylang-ylang layered with the richness of bittersweet chocolate and ebony woods, all wrapped with the aura of the gold rush rose and A Dozen Roses signature rose absolute.”

Iced White
“A bright, white flash. Icy, edgy, effervescent. A Dozen Roses Iced White is a brisk mix of white on white; white peony, white primrose and osmanthus that cools down with vanilla, white musk and at the center a fresh white rose and A Dozen Roses’ signature rose absolute.”

A Dozen Roses fragrances are available exclusively from Neiman Marcus, $95, 3.4oz/100ml Eau de Parfum. (via press release)

  • Suzanna: Even a rose fan like myself can occasionally suffer burnout (and go running for the jasmine or the tuberose). The idea of these hasn’t tripped the olfactory trigger enough to make me drive two hours to Orlando to try them. The mention of pear and vanilla isn’t heartening to me, but I won’t pass them by if and when I see them on the NM counter.

    They sound sweet. How much so remains to be seen. Gold Rush sounds as if it might be the equivalent of Gaga boots. July 15, 2011 at 9:28am Reply

  • Victoria: They do sound sweet, but I am curious about them. Gold Rush caught my eye. I recently tried a rose flavored chocolate candy, and it was absolutely heavenly. July 15, 2011 at 10:24am Reply

  • dee: Well the bottles are beautiful, even if they don’t set off my lemming-O-meter. 😉 July 15, 2011 at 8:45pm Reply

  • Bulldoggirl: Interesting! I would love to do a comparison with the Rosines, many of which I consider to be the “rose standard.” July 16, 2011 at 7:55am Reply

  • Suzanna: I find rose an interesting flavor. It isn’t used at all in American cooking. It tastes exactly as it smells and I imagine the pairing with chocolate is divine as something to eat. Chocolate notes in fragrances always seem to have strange nuances to me: waxy, coconutty, sugary, etc. Always flat and too sweet.

    Perhaps “ebony woods” will offset this tendency. I envision a bitter chocolate note as complement to a striking dark woods note, as if organically related. July 16, 2011 at 8:31am Reply

  • Victoria: I love the bottle design too. Although I am not as crazy about that heavy golden top. July 16, 2011 at 5:09pm Reply

  • Victoria: I would be curious to try them and compare. Rosine collection is definitely one of the most interesting among the rose dominated fragrances. July 16, 2011 at 5:10pm Reply

  • Victoria: In Middle Eastern and Indian cooking, it is very common and not just in desserts. I always liked the combination of rose water and spices rubbed into the lamb. Rose is actually very citrusy, so it cuts down on the richness of meat. July 16, 2011 at 5:12pm Reply
