Let it Rock


Launched in 2007 by fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, Let it Rock is named for the King’s Road shop Westwood and McClaren opened in the 1971. It opens with citrusy, bitter, bergamot along with juicy, sweet, mandarin, that gives way to a peppery note of freesia. Beautifully fresh and floral, there is a whiff of anise-like tarragon from the freesia that is just heart-grabbing. As it develops, the freesia blooms and leads to a wild heart of sweet, narcotic, animalic jasmine, it’s floral aspect highlighted by a touch of lush rose. Skin heat brings amber up from the base – sweet, warm and resinous, it’s joined by earthy, woody, patchouli that’s been dirtied up, just a bit, with coumarin.

The drydown is a little sweet, a little dirty, warm and, surprisingly, not at all naughty. The only sin in this juice is how much I love wearing it, especially in warmer weather when the heat just seems to open it up.

Notes: bergamot, mandarin, freesia, jasmine, rose, coumarin, amber and patchouli.
