"I know a bank where the wild thyme blows, Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows, Quite over canopied with luscious woodbine, With sweet musk-roses, and with eglantine: There sleeps Titania sometime of the night, Lulled in these flowers with dances and delight."
~ William Shakespeare, Midsummers Night Dream
"When I first smelled the Atelier Cologne fragrance Rose Anonyme and Vetiver Fatal, I immediately fell for the sheer, smoky roses and left the vetiver to languish on my desk. Perhaps that day I craved more flamboyance and more glamour which Rose Anonyme amply delivered. The scent on my skin was bright but moody, rustic but sophisticated. It smelled of sliced oranges, damp earth and fallen leaves–a little vignette of late summer."
~ Victoria Frolova, Bois de Jasmin
