Hello lovelies, I thought it would be fun to do a video about Rose DeWitt Bukater’s favorite beauty products from the movie Titanic. I have always been a huge fan of Titanic and wanted to do a video about different beauty products inspired by the Edwardian period.
RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner operated by the White Star Line that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early morning hours of April 15, 1912, after striking an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. Of the estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, more than 1,500 died, making the sinking one of modern history’s deadliest peacetime commercial marine disasters. RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time she entered service and was the second of three Olympic-class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line.
Rose DeWitt Bukater:
Rose Calvert was born on April 5, 1895, was an American socialite and later actress. In 1912 she was returning to America aboard the RMS Titanic, with her aristocratic fiancé Caledon Hockley. However, during the voyage, she and third-class passenger Jack Dawson fell in love.
The voyage came to an abrupt end when the ship struck ice and sank. Rose survived the ship’s sinking, but Jack did not. She later married a man called Calvert and had at least two children.
Legacy 1912 Titanic by RMS Titanic is a Floral Woody Musk fragrance for women. The nose behind this fragrance is Adolphe Saalfeld. The fragrance features hyacinth, lemon, rose, orange blossom, and violet.
This fragrance was launched by QVC to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, and the scent has a story as compelling as Jack and Rose’s! Legacy 1912 Titanicä is based on the perfume vials brought onboard by passenger and British perfumer Adolphe Saafield. He survived the ship’s crash, but his scents remained on the ocean floor until they were recently recovered by RMS Titanic Inc, and replicated for QVC’s fragrance.

Victorian Original Recipe
In 1901 natural beauty instead of heavy makeup was all the rage! Healthy and smooth skin with a porcelain glow and healthy pink cheeks- that is what women were after. White skin was en vogue, so women protected their skin from the sun. This isn’t to say women didn’t wear any makeup. The popular cosmetics were found in natural colors, nudes, and soft shades with a lot of skincare products like cold cream.
While cosmetics took the back burner in this time period, Skincare was held above everything. Women would use cold creams on a daily basis for cleaning, moisturizing, softening the skin, and preventing chapping. Rose was one of the most favored cold creams because the Rose water works as a natural cleanser, toner, and has a wonderful light scent.

Most of us don’t know what Vanishing Cream is, so let’s start there. Vanishing Cream is so-called because it “vanishes” into the skin. It also is touted to “vanish” skin discoloration and acne as well as moisturize the skin. But the main attribute associated with Vanishing Cream is for making a protective layer against your skin and the makeup you are applying. This is meant to protect the skin. So apply this first, rub it in- then apply your makeup.
