Botanical Essence™ No.9 Eau de Parfum

About this fine fragrance

Be allured by nature’s rich decadence with the warm, evocative scent of succulent forest fruits in a bottle. This evocative modern scent contrasts the warmth of a traditional chypre with the rich succulence of dark forest fruits.


Juicy top notes of blackcurrant bud are complemented by crisp bergamot and vibrant red ginger. Beyond, a heart of velvety rich osmanthus is offset by the intense exoticism of Damask rose and smooth patchouli. Created around a base of woody oakmoss and Haitian vetiver, enveloped within the warmth of vanilla. Over 90% derived from natural ingredients.

Skilfully handcrafted by contemporary French perfumer, Quentin Bisch, Botanical Essence™ No.9 captures the unique energy that you feel, moments after a rainstorm, as the clouds part and the sun begins to warm the forest floor. Our latest eau de parfum takes the wearer on a mysterious olfactive journey right to the fragrant heart of a lush and verdant landscape, laden with the scent of ripened berries.


Top notes: Blackcurrant bud, bergamot and red ginger

Heart notes: Osmanthus, Damask rose and patchouli
Base notes: Oakmoss, Haitian vetiver and vanilla

“I loved this perfume for its distinctiveness. There are not many chypre scents in this price range and here the quality is outstanding.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Internet shopping blotches I bought no 15 a few months ago and love it, I could jump in the bottle, so for Christmas I thought I’d get myself a scent for the festive season no 9 & I hate it, I can’t put my finger on why- just personal taste I suppose but, it’s quite sweet. Just rolling a dice choosing a scent on content/reviews,.. no problem with Liz Earle just next time I’ll try getting to a shop to smell it before I buy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I love the smell but… It just doesn’t last. Such a shame as it’s beautiful, my favourite out of the collection. I’m just not organised enough to carry it around with me for top ups throughout the day. Sadly, I won’t be purchasing this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this fragrance Love all Liz Earle fragrances but No.9 is really special. Unusual, woody with underlying sharpness. Couldn’t resist a spare one at a bargain sale price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favourite fragrance I am allergic to most fragrances but this Liz Earle No 9 suites me and causes no reaction. I have just had major surgery and treated myself for a little bit of therapy. Excellent customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely fruity fragrance This purchase was a repeat one. This fragrance is perfect for autumn - it is warm and full of red fruit. However, I also layer it in summer with other Liz Earle fragrances, particularly number 1. I have four of these fragrances currently open and love layering the scents! Each of them lasts all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I usually buy no 15 snd nothing would beat this but I’m smitten with no 9. It’s as strong as no 15 and I put it on this morning and I love it! I have worn no 15 for a long time and couldn’t find anything as strong long lasting but I’m delighted because I’ve found another one which I love and that’s no 9. It’s strong and long lasting and I’ll be buying this again and again . Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely perfume In these times of Covid where you cannot go anywhere to actually try the perfume before you buy, I was taking a chance, but as it was on a really good deal bundle went for it and am not disappointed. I normally purchase No15, this is much lighter but lovely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A warm and fruity scent 2 colleagues at work use this fragrance and although I have used Liz Earle for years I have never tried the scents. Bought some for myself & absolutely delighted with it. It’s a warm and mellow fruity fragrance & I use it for day wear - every day! Shall be buying it for others now. Great value compared to other makes. Thanks Liz Earl - another triumph .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No 9 Eau De Perfume Absolutely stunning, really rich tones of ginger and bergamot. A real winter perfume.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heady, warm and sensuous. Love this new perfume, I've been a fan of the botanical range, but this new fragrance is lovely. It stays well on the skin and is noticed by friends who ask what it's called. Can be worn all day and is special enough to be worn in the evening and on a special occasion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful This really is a bright and modern fragrance, it has warmth and depth but is lifted by the sparkling green and fruity notes. I think it's playful and fun. My younger sister who hates almost all my fragrances liked this one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like a whisper. A subtle, frothy, clean berry aroma that permeates the senses like a whisper stealing across an open moor. This is a beautiful, sophisticated scent for a reflective personality. Someone who appreciates a cosy night in by an open fire with a quality red wine, spoilt only by the luxurious melt of a chocolate truffle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it but .. I got this as a free gift too with a purchase from LE. I love the fragrance quite woody / spicey however a bit like other reviewers say, it doesn’t seem to last. I have to keep applying so that is disappointing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lovely fresh perfume I was given a small sample of this perfume with a previous order. This gave me the chance of trying it over a period of time. I came back and bought the full size - a lovely perfume.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great for sensitive skin I adore Liz Earle products and this is no exception; it has a lovely fragrance and so delicate on sensitive skin; I can get a rash from some perfumes but not this one! The packaging is lovely too so great for a gift!
Date published: 2019-07-29
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for me I received this fragrance as a free gift with purchase which was lovely, however it's not for me. I love the other Liz Earle fragrances but this one smells like the blackcurrant throat sweets Tunes! Its quite overpowering so I have not used it since first trying it
Date published: 2019-05-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fairly new to me. I wanted to try something less "chemically" as I am now a little older and find they react badly on my skin. I can't believe how beautiful no.9 smells. It is unique and fresh and clean and no chemical manufactured type smell at all. Even better, it lasts for hours and even more wonderful at the end of the day. So happy with my new find. Hope it's never discontinued or changed. Thank you Liz Earle x

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous fragrance! This is one of my many favourite perfumes by Liz Earle. It’s a strong mixture of sweet and woody and I can really smell this perfume all day long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Really different and very appealing This perfume is entirely different to the other, often rather samey ones that are currently available on the High Street, and I love it! Imagine the fragrance you get in the sort of shop which sells bath bombs and handmade soaps and you will be on the right lines. There's definitely floral and fruity, possibly blackcurrent, notes in there. It's just stunning and I can't get enough of it. I was given a sample bottle and now I have the full size. In terms of fading, it doesn't last all day on the skin, maybe a few hours, although it lingers on clothing longer, but when it's gone I just give it another spray because it's just so lovely...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from gorgeous but ... Absolutely loved the smell of this delicious perfume. However, the delicious smell soon disappeared. So disappointing. Fairly priced for its size but you do need to reapply sooner than you would wish.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as expected I got this as a free gift from Liz Earle .I had been so looking forward to it .I wear it for work and have to keep reappplying it it fades so fast .Glad I did not buy it .
