You said the brochure from Monopteros wasn't to be scoffed at? Let's go in that direction together.
Anglia, the third.

I would also like to remain true to the British sober protocol style in my third discussion of a fragrance in this House. So, straight up:

Start: Reminiscent of a kind of light variant of very kümmellastiger Trumper fragrances. Although no caraway is listed, the association is still present. Perhaps the combination of carnation, nutmeg and moss is also responsible for this impression. In any case very peculiar, radiant and pleasant - not least because of a certain coolness, which I would attribute to eucalyptus. Overall far, far less citric than the previously tested candidates from the same institution.

History: The fragrance becomes greener, more herbaceous and almost a little salty. This, together with the remaining eucalyptus freshness, leads to a touch of modernity, as I feel distantly reminded of "Feeling Man" by Jil Sander or "Beach Hut Man" by Amouage (but without the scratchy tidiness of the latter).

An altogether effortlessly timeless fragrance that very casually and skilfully redeems the "park walk in the English park" theme that it promises in its name: A little tree, a lot of shrub and cabbage, a little sea breeze from the English Channel, and at the same time quite "perspective", since the freshness of the top note appears again and again. Generally a very fine, archetypal British trait of the Anglia or Crown Perfumery to choose speaking names for their creations that anticipate the fragrance experience quite accurately (see my commentary on "Spiced Limes"). By the way, shelf life and sillage are really remarkable for such an old recipe, so that "Park Royal" is my personal number one of the Anglia perfumes tested so far. Well done!

Many thanks again to the good user Yatagan for sending it! One last "Anglese" of his discussion is still waiting: "Russian Water" has appealed to me so strongly by name alone that a few millilitres had to be souked up.
