Anne Boleyn Perfume oil
A unique scent inspired by Tudor perfumery, a blend of aromas able to take you back in time, with the use of herbs and spices which were in contemporary use, as perfumes or in pomanders (scented pouches).
The Tudor age saw exotic explorations undertaken by the likes of Christopher Columbus and Sir Francis Drake, who brought back fragrant herbs and spices. Some of these imported substances became favourites of the wealthy to wear as perfumes. Popular scents of the Tudor and Elizabethan eras were orange blossom, jasmine, rose, agarwood and sandalwood.
Anne Boleyn’s scent has been inspired by these new and exciting aromas of Tudor times. The top notes of this perfume are English rose and honeysuckle, as Anne’s heraldic badge depicts red and white roses, and honeysuckle was a part of Henry and Anne’s private motif. Rose and honeysuckle have been blended with orange, jasmine, agarwood and sandalwood oils, delivering an authentic, if more powerful, historical scent.
Essential oils have been blended with a sweet almond oil base, and will arrive in a 5ml amber glass bottle.
