Penhaligon's: "Being secretly the son of Lord George and Clandestine Clara certainly explains Radcliff’s weakness for the flesh, but his illegitimacy may have its advantages. Unburdened by title or propriety, Radcliff indulges in fast cars and even faster women - his raison d’être parties and provocation. A prominent note with Roaring Radcliff is of course tobacco - strong, smoky and distinctive to his set. He also always carries with him gingerbread - adding its sweet spiciness to his father’s love of liquor - in Rutherford’s rum. Sexy and rebellious - what well-bred girl would not succumb to his charm? As he is wont to whisper in their inclining ears… The night is young…"

The nose behind this fragrance is Daphné Bugey. Top notes are bergamot, tarragon and rum; middle notes are ginger, rose and tobacco; base notes are amberwood, beeswax, cinnamon, honey, leather and tonka bean.

Available as a 75 ml EDP. Roaring Radcliff was launched in 2016.

Roaring Radcliff Fragrance Reviews


Love this. It has citrus in the top but quickly leaves to become a soft, powdery tobacco with a hint of sweetness. The honey is not prominent. It's there but not in a sickening sweet way. This entire Portraits line reminds me of Histoiries de Parfums. That kind of soft, powdery base. Of those I've tried so far, this is my favorite. It is not boring, gourmand or boisterous. In the complete dry down there is serious musk or civet. Six hours later: like vintage Habanita had sex with Salome.


Started out quite delicious (I thought I'd finally found something in the collection worth purchasing!), but soon turns into a boring almondy gourmand, then slowly adds elements of Tobacco Vanille.


Roaring Radcliff is a boisterous fellow. His dramatic entrance with strong navy rum would have you believe you'd been transported from Park Lane directly to Martinique. Radcliff's easy manner hides a complex character, once settled, he exudes the aroma of fine tobacco and hints of spice. Men choose Radcliff as a friend and confidant, women desire him without restraint.
