Dirty English is from Juicy Couture, the American casual apparel company founded by Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor in 1997. They launched the fragrance n 2008 saying in an interview that the fragrance is a mixture of Anglomania, CZ Guest, and a "dash of attitude inspired by a 1976 review of a Sex Pistols concert." Its name is a reference to Nash-Taylor’s husband, John Taylor of Duran Duran fame.

It opens spicy and warm from exotic peppered mandarin and cardamom – kind of like a wink that says ‘follow me’. As it progresses, the spiciness deepens as it a gets an herbal lift from marjoram. Cypress wood, ebony and vetiver root give it a pungent piney, woody, irresistible heart -  so powerful, so persuasive. At the base, notes of leather, amber and musk give Dirty English its resinous, animalic  swagger.

Deep dark and delicious, Dirty English doesn’t smell ‘dirty’, so much as it makes you think that way.

Notes: peppered mandarin, cardamom, marjoram, blue cypress, cedarwood, vetiver root, ebony wood, amber and musk.
