BACKORDER: SHIPS Late Nov/Early Dec 2018
“The fragrance Hollyrose is a black leather rose. Inspired by the teenage groupies who ruled over Sunset Boulevard in the 70’s (Anita Pallenberg, Bebe Buell, Pamela Des Barres) these muses and queens of the Hollywood scene (dating the likes of Jimmy Page, Mick Jagger, Alice Cooper, Robert Plant, Iggy Pop) hung out in L.A and became the next somebody, fashion icons, actors, rock stars in their own right.

Purity and unabashed sensuality (rose and orchid) intertwine and paint a portrait of women driven by their own desire and the desire they awaken.

Patchouli belies the natural, mother earth magic that infuses each of ever Hollyrose with her inimitable ability to keep on trucking. A transfixing trail, Hollyrose alternates between romanticism and steely self determinism, decadence and down and dirty delights. For all the good bad girls out there, Hollyrose has a hold on we.
