Day 6: Fragrant Rose Advent Calendar
The start of the new millennium! Starting with 2001.
Heat tolerant, mauve, and fabulous fragrance? Yes, Please! I use Angel Face all the time in my designs as a landscaper. I suggest this gal for any beginning rosarian, and there always seems to be one lurking at a nursery along the Wasatch Front. It was patented by Swim and Weeks in 1968.
It smells delicate, citrus-y, with a little bit of parsley. Firmly in the citrus fragrance family with a subtle note of centifolia. I would argue that its fragrance is the purest citrus note in all of rosedom. COCO Mademoiselle L’eau Privée by Chanel is a good match.
When I pick a blossom from Secret, I almost feel like I have the world’s most perfect hand-sized soap. The large multicolored petals are reminiscent of porcelain. Created by independent hybridizer Daniel Tracy in 1992, I like it best when it’s a little warm and the whites pop.
The fragrance is a combo of centifolia and multiflora, with the smallest pinch of pepper at the end. It fits in the soft floral family and Idôle by Lancôme is very similar.
