Killer Rose ought to have been made in the 1980s when floral fragrances had no fear. It was a time of big hats, big hair, bright colours, glossy lips, shoulder pads and outstanding scents.
They fell out of fashion, washed away by the fresh-light-watery trend.
Sarah McCartney loves making retro-scents, so she took one of her own rose blends and added it to a rich, smooth 80s style accord that she named Felix Fixer (after her first tango teacher because he was so smooth and strong).
There are fruity notes, a dash of citrus, patchouli, vanilla, woods, even a drop of jasmine sambac, a powdery iris heart, and a bucket load of roses.
