Lady Primrose - Fragrance Forward, Regal Style
A legacy that spans decades, Lady Primrose fragrance company was founded in 1990 by scents that date back centuries. Commissioned by the famed Lanesborough Hotel in London to create luxurious fragrant amenities for their discerning guests, the hotel amenity program contributed to the launch of Lady Primrose and the founding fragrances, Tryst and Royal Extract. Inspired by and created in part from archival scent recipes from vaults of London and Parisian perfume houses dating back to 1677, Tryst and Royal Extract lead the portfolio to this day. The beloved Royal Extract fragrance remained a part of the Lanesborough amenity offerings for 25 years gracing guest suites and rooms with scent infused soaps, lotions, bath gels, dusting powders and more.
Lady Primrose has since curated lifestyle collections with scent offerings not only in Tryst and Royal Extract, but also in Momentous, Necture, Celadon, Blue Agave, and a most recent launch of Gentlemen 1677 which expands the portfolio into the men’s category for the first time. All distinct and subtle with unique profiles, scents are inspired by a variety of florals, spices, fragrant gardens, citrus, mint, woody bases, fruits, teas, honey, and herbs completing an elevated fragrance wardrobe.
The first discovery of perfumes was embraced circa 3000 BC by the Egyptians blending cinnamon with cassia bark. The first ever modern perfume was produced in the 1300s blending orange blossom and thyme commissioned by Queen Elizabeth of Hungary. In this century, fragrance-loving consumers fuel a multi-billion-dollar perfume industry. Lady Primrose works to capture this consumer online, through fine retailer partnerships and top tier hotel and resorts around the world. By delivering unique, reminiscent, and unforgettable fragrances, Lady Primrose focuses in on “celebrating a little luxury every day.”
Fragrances that capture feelings and foster memories reign in a customer loyalty. And this is how Lady Primrose steps in brilliantly. A stay at the One&Only Palmilla in Los Cabos experiencing Lady Primrose’s Blue Agave will prove it. Produced exclusively by Lady Primrose for the resort, Blue Agave is one of our most memorable scents and quite literally, is an infused part of a guests stay at this award-winning resort. And a visit to the iconic Stanley Korshak store in Dallas or Fortnum & Mason in London reacquaints loyal shoppers to the Tryst and Royal Extract collections.
