Penhaligon’s have caught wind that William Penhaligon is returning from his voyage to the mystical lands of Egypt, an oasis of inspiration for such a perfumer as he. His letters expose his elation, he speaks of the butterflies in his stomach, though many argue that this was due to his drinking straight from the Nile, and that he should consult a medical professional. But William worries not. He claims to have something rather remarkable to share, a new fragrance inspired by the city where he has resided for the past few months.
An olfactive stroll through the ancient spice trade route allows one to discover the precious goods that may be obtained here. Notes of saffron, sandalwood and cedarwood connote the atmosphere of this wonderous city. A rose of a thousand seductive facets mirrors Cairo and its thousand minarets. Labdanum, cypriol and vanilla pod burst through, accompanied by the murmur of early morning life in the land. Dionysus rests in Greece, but the workings of Osiris are ever-present here, rising with the plumes of incense that dance in the air, beckoning one to take a closer look at the carnal sensuality of this fragrance. William suggests that those who adorn themselves in Halfeti would share a certain fondness for Cairo. Their resemblance to one another unveils itself through woods, patchouli and, of course, rose.
