The Anthology collection breathes new life into ten of our heritage fragrances dating back as far as 1927.
Penhaligon’s has a long and distinguished history in the world of British perfumery dating back to the 1870s when William Penhaligon moved to London from Cornwall and started creating fine fragrances for discerning gentlemen. With this rich heritage and an archive of formulations, it’s no surprise that in 2009 we decided to embark on the journey of reviving our heritage fragrances.

Orange blossom is one of the perfume world’s most radiant raw materials. A variety of beautiful ingredients can be extracted from the citrus aurantia tree, depending on the processes used.
Gardenias are recognised as one of the most loved exotic flowering plants. They were originally found only in China and Japan, but today there are over 200 different species of gardenia in existence throughout the world.
The Anthology Collection contains ten stunningly diverse scents, lifted from our archives and given new life. A selection of these formulations have remained unchanged, offering a unique insight into the fragrance tastes and trends of the era, whilst others have been carefully reformulated to ensure they appeal to modern fragrance wearers while still retaining a unique heritage feel.
