Inspired by the scent of the Turkish Baths on Jermyn Street, Piccadilly, Hammam Bouquet is a daring oriental created by William Penhaligon in 1872. Animalic and golden, it is warm and mature, redolent of old books, powdered resins and ancient rooms. At its heart is dusky Turkish rose, with jasmine, woods, musk and powdery orris. Heady and glamorous.
This fresh Blenheim Bouquet bath and shower gel gently cleanses the skin and leaves it soft and refreshed.

Genies Of Luxury And Yet Chummy Sanctum.
Hammam has been my inner sanctum of scent for very many years, and never fails to summon up the genies of rich Turkish rose and sharp sandalwood as befits the furnishings suggested by its name.
Both my first and latest passport into Penhaligon's luxury and yet somehow chummy world.
Would you recommend it? : Yes

Redolent Of A Bygone Age......
After some deliberation, I bought this for myself despite it being marketed primarily as a scent for men. I love it - it's powdery, evocative and definitely something different for the discerning customer.
