This Is England ’90 E02


There’s a satin glass bottle of Yardley Lace in Lol and Woody’s bedroom. I’ve always wondered what perfume the former-skinbyrd-turned-lunchlady wears, and now we have an answer. According to Fragrantica, this fragrance, originally launched in 1964, is built on three notes – aldehydes as top notes, rose as heart notes and wood and oakmoss as base notes. It sounds like a very feminine and romantic scent, something which definitely appeals to Lol’s sentimental side. This specific bottle could be the 1982 formula, created by Dominique Ropion, or even a more recent version, since this perfume is still available in shops.

Thanks to Stephan Matthews and Jane Daly for the id.
