Perfume has always been a romantic sort of gift – it’s certainly intimate – and with a name like Ralph Lauren Romance the popular scent seems tailor made for weddings.
Now Ralph Lauren has come out with another version of the signature fragrance – Ralph Lauren Romance Always Yours. It comes in a limited-edition Parfum (at the link above), $225, and also an Elixer de Parfum Spray, $72.
More reasons it would make a lovely wedding gift? Launching 10 years after the original Ralph Lauren Romance and was created by the same perfumer, Harry Fremont, it “celebrates a deeper commitment with a more complex formulation.” It’s limited edition, so only available in this , the year of your marriage. And, the hand-crafted glass dauber is faceted “in the spirit of a diamond, the modern symbol of commitment and love, and the traditional gift for 10 years of marriage.”
So, he would only buy this for you and never some tramp off the street is what they’re saying.
The perfume is very classic, much like the Ralph Lauren customer. Top notes include Sun Goddess Rose, Yellow Freesia and Ginger, with mid-notes of Lotus Flower, White Violet and Fresh Daylily (I hate stale Daylilies) and a dry down of Patchouli Concentrate, Creamy Sensual Musk and Oakmoss. If those base notes scare you, don’t worry, it’s very light and the rose and floral elements are most obvious to me.
The Elixir de Parfum Spray comes in the traditional Romance bottle with a diamond-inspired cap, and will be a permanent part of the collection.
