Duke Nelson has to conform to his class, his family’s high expectation and stiff upper lip. He married the most loved girl in London, the Coveted Duchess Rose as expected. He keeps up appearances, but rumour has it their marriage has never been consummated. Infact rumours abound that this is a marriage of convenience. The Duke is flamboyant, he has a whimsical way about him. He is wonderfully unusual and eccentric, so naturally the high society types love to gossip. Word on the street is that The Duke and Terrible Teddy are more than just friends. Much Ado About the Duke is the ultimate fusion of florals and earthy tones. A gorgeous spicy Rose with a hint of Gin and a Leathery base makes this the most exquisite fusion. Fancy that!
Top: Peppery Rose
Base: Leathery Woods
HOW IT WEARS
Much Ado About the Duke is such a wonderful earthy Rose scent – it lasts well. We generally get up to 8 hours, sometimes longer on clothing. The silage is good, this perfume makes an impact without overwhelming.
We love the Rose and Gin combination, its a winner and this scent has a touch of spice and a gorgeous depth to it aswell which makes it amazing on the skin!
ABOUT THE BRAND
A classic English perfume house, William Penhaligon owned a barber shop which became a perfumery in 1870, launching his first fragrance in 1872. This fragrance was created regularly for its many fans until the store was destroyed in The Blitz of 1941. Despite the store being destroyed, the fragrance house endured and was honoured with a Royal Warrant by the Duke of Wellington in 1956 for manufacturing toiletries. Many of the classic scents in Penhaligon’s collection remain to this day, while many modern scents have been added. Penhaligon’s remain true to William Penhaligon’s vision of fine, traditional perfumes and techniques.
