Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I was wanting to replace/replicate my now obsolete all time favourite rose perfume, which lasts all day and evokes compliment upon compliment - doesn’t get anywhere near. Not a single acknowledgment or comment and totally lost on me. Sad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful fragrance Disappointed with fragrance no. 1 so tried no. 20, wow it is gorgeous, my go to favourite. It is summary, fragrant & long lasting, everything I wanted in a summer perfume, will definitely buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favourite Love Liz Earle Eau de Parfum. I have no's- 1, 9, 15 and now 20, which has to be my favourite. Each scent can be worn on its own or combine with another. The scent really last, if you spray on or around a scarf or piece of clothing it will be there days later! It is a very natural scent, no brash or harsh artificial notes, just gorgeous aroma. Always on my present list, whether for someone to buy me or for me to buy myself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a rose garden after a summer shower... Wanted to replenish my suite of LE frangrances and repurchased my favourite- No.20. Love the sherbety florals that last throughout the day. Always get asked what I’m wearing so it’s nice to share the Liz Earle botanical love. From the exquisite packacking to the first know you’re in for something special.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice fragrance I’ve previously had No.15 which I really liked but thought I’d try something different. It’s a nice fragrance but I would probably go back to No.15 next time. I’d agree with other reviews that say it doesn’t last very long compared to other brands

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed. Beautiful but doesn’t last. I have all the others in the range and re-buy when I run out but this one doesn’t last more than 20 mins (to me and to others). It smells beautiful and i now layer it (have to) with my other perfumes which do last all day. Disappointing as if it lasted all day it would be amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely beautiful! This is the most beautiful perfume I have ever smelt! It was by chance, that I tried the tester at the till in John Lewis. I find this fragrance really delicate and light- the scent lasts for ages on my skin. The only downside, is that it only comes in a 50ml bottle :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Botanical essence no 20 The most gorgeous smell. It’s very similar to the toner. Love it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful! This is my 2nd bottle of No. 20. I think it smells gorgeous! The reason I've only given a 4 rating is the smell doesn't last long on me, but i still love it, and it's not tested on animals so definitely will buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Botanical Essences Now have all the fragrances, so can chop and change as I please. No. 20 was the first one I bought and I think it is still my favourite! Have sent different ones to friends as gifts and they are always delighted with them. Have bought several handbag size (10 ml No 15 ) as Christmas gifts. They are light to post but will be lovely to receive. Bought an extra one for myself too😀.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sorry not for me I have been wearing no.100 for many years but it was out of stock. I wear it every day and its my little luxury as I don't wear much makeup. I phoned to see when it was expected in, but no-one knew. So I ordered no.20 in desperation as it seemed nearest with rose scent. Unfortunately it's not at all similar and as you don't do testers to try so £56 wasted, especially when less than a week later I was notified no.100 was back in stock ...i was not amused. Ive now ordered no.100 which I know and love and brings me joy, i have many compliments. I've learnt the hard way. Suggest you please start doing testers on request, I'd have been more than happy to pay for one to be sent rather than guess.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refreshing I was attracted by this rose Eau de Parfum because it contains other ingredients which allow it to be refreshing rather than cloying as Rose can be sometimes. I think this will be a 'go to' perfume in future.

Hi, Are Liz Earle perfumes vegan?

Asked by: Ly222
Hi, thanks for getting in touch! In some formulations we have harnessed the naturally active properties of beeswax, propolis and Manuka honey which are harvested as by-products from the honey industry.  While we can confirm which products include these ingredients, without completing a full assessment of the entire supply chain we are unable to declare that our products are suitable for use by vegans – we are sorry. However, we can confirm that from day one we've had a very strict no animal testing policy and quite proudly display the leaping bunny symbol on all of our products. We can also confirm that none of our Botanical Essence contain beeswax, propolis or Manuka honey. I hope this information helps however, if you do require any further assistance, please reach out to our Customer Centre by calling 01983 813913 or email

Hello - can anyone tell me whether this smells anything like the rosemary and rock rose body/hand wash please?

Asked by: Jax66
Hello, thank you for your question. Although the Botanical Essence No 20 is not the same fragrance as the Rosemary & Rockrose Body Care products, with its top notes of Pink pepper, rose essential water, bergamot and mandarin, heart notes: Damask rose, Indian jasmine and carrot seed, and base notes: Amyris, sandalwood and vanilla bean, it will compliment them beautifully. I do hope this helps, but please do not hesitate to contact us directly on 01983 813 913, if you require any further help or advice, Best Wishes - The Liz Earle Beauty Co Team
