A Twist in the Myth
Not only because of the almost casual, superficial design language of the flacons (which remind me as a single-malt-lover of the bottlings of the Caol Ila distillery), but also because of the task Anglia Perfumery has dedicated itself to, this perfume has a rather protocol review; strictly English, so to speak. This perfume house has set itself the task of preserving the essential creations of the lost British fragrance institution "Crown Perfumery" for posterity as best it can. And that is worth all the honours, regardless of individual displeasure or displeasure! Here now my recordings collected over several test runs.

Start: Naturally green-citric (more lime juice than peel), but also strongly spicy-herbal (with a later look at the pyramid probably moss and sage, but that will only be half the story). But there is also a fragrance impression, which I can't quite figure out. The discreet "fartiness" of other classics such as Guerlain's "Jicky" can be explained quite easily by the existing Zibet share. But where the hell does the association of cauliflower come from that creeps up on me in the first half hour?!

And it says, "A hole." Very withdrawn, transparent, in fact like a ventilated bedroom in the green, furnished with fresh bed linen, combined with a bitterly ethereal note that reminds me of a woodruff grinded between my fingers. In this phase I like "Imperial Limes" best!

Finale: The Woodruff Association is joined by a very discreet soapiness. The "herbaceousness" (ethereally bitter bitterness) increases parallel. Very interesting and unexpected in its intensity, but at least give me a little too much.

For the sake of completeness, here is the reaction of the housekeeper (who likes most of my Englishmen): "Bah! How extensively used rinse water."

Well, well...

With many thanks to the good Yatagan for sending it! There are still two more "Anglesen" waiting for their review; "Imperial Limes" occupies the last rank in their series, so much is revealed.
