Perfect Expression of the Brand
In the 1980s, Laura Ashley cornered the market on floral prints: floral printed garden-party dresses, floral printed wallpaper, floral printed fabrics for housewares, floral printed everything! For a while, this Victorian tea-cosy aesthetic conquered the world, like the British Empire on which the sun never set. it even extended into... perfumes. Like the other LA products, the LA perfumes were well-made and fussy. And floral, naturally. LA No. 1 in its floral-printed bottle is a high-80s Victorian nosegay -- roses, Iris and jasmine of an amped-up variety. Very well done if you like that sort of thing, over the top and precious if you don't.
