The Coveted Duchess Rose

To avoid the suffocating drama of her house, Duchess Rose (the daughter of Lord George and Lady Blanche) married a duke.

Clandestine Clara

Clara is a sweet beau of Lord George’s dynasty with a complex personality, unquestionably living ahead of time. Unlike other women of her time who are girly and gentle, Clara is rather rebellious and antithetical, a strong and independent woman. Nobody would have expected a girl to smoke or hide behind a car wheel, but she does them.

Such robust and distinguished personality is best reflected in this sweet, but equitably spicy and woody scent. It is sexy and appealing, a temptation overall. Just like Clara, this scent is irresistibly graceful and sensual.
