Elizabeth of York was an inspiration behind the creation of this velvet body scent oil. She was an exceptional woman, renowned for her beauty and courage, and she revealed much of wisdom and political skill in ensuring the survival of her line. She was born in February 1466, in times when the wars of the roses raged on, with people taking sides: Lancaster vs York.
Elizabeth of York played an important role in the wars of the roses and the early Tudor story. She was the eldest daughter of the Yorkist King Edward IV and through her arranged marriage to Henry VII she became the mother of the Tudor dynasty, with her children including a king of England (Henry VIII) and queens of Scotland (Margaret) and France (Mary Rose), and her direct descendants including three Tudor monarchs. Their mothers planned for Henry Tudor to take the English throne and marry Elizabeth of York, uniting the houses of Lancaster and York.
What started off as an arranged marriage for political reasons turned into a true and faithful love between Elizabeth and Henry VII in a time when loveless marriages was the norm. The marriage of King Henry VII and Elizabeth of York was hugely popular, for the union of the White Rose of York and the Red Rose of Lancaster and it was seen as bringing peace after years of dynastic war. Elizabeth was reported to have been extremely beautiful, pious, and abundantly generous to those in need, kind-natured, patient and deeply loving of her children. She also cared for her sister's children and gave charitable donations to religious houses. Elizabeth of York was the perfect image of a queen, wife and mother. She performed her queenly role to perfection, understanding exactly what was required of her, and conforming seemingly effortlessly to the late medieval ideal of queenship, which constrained her to a role that was essentially decorous, symbolic and dynastic. She was beautiful, devout, fertile and kind – the traditional good queen.
It is often said that, apart from this role, Henry allowed Elizabeth no power at all. But evidently it was known that she exercised a gentle, unobtrusive influence on him, as is evidenced by the endless stream of gifts to her from powerful persons who clearly believed that her patronage was worth having. Henry VII had come to rely on Elizabeth so absolutely that he confided his intentions to her, essentially entrusting her with a state secret of the highest level. Her goodness shines forth in the records; she was greatly loved, and deservedly so. Elizabeth is often unfairly overshadowed by her successors, the wives of Henry VIII, but she was a more successful queen than any of them. For this, her integrity and her sweet, good nature, her memory deserves to be celebrated.
Elizabeth of York was definitely the mother of a new dynasty, and perhaps the mother of the English renaissance as well. Nymphaea represents the scent of a quite feminine power. Strong and light at the same time. Natural yet refined. An ideal harmony between the uplifting delicateness of citrus and sparkling fruity green notes of ylang-ylang and melon. Enchanted and mysterious. Evanescent breath of jasmine that shines through completes the shimmering scent with perfect balance.
