  • Whether at sail on the High Seas or at home in one’s private London Club, refreshments are essential. The British penchant for gin and tea is renowned and well-known - but there is nothing familiar about this scent.

    From a fresh opening like a Captain’s tipple of gin-grapefruit tonic, it settles into a fig and black-tea signature. From High Seas to High Tea, the surprise lies in the reassuring comfort that comes next, as the milky-fig-tea accord takes hold. Progressively smooth; now magnolia, now lavender, but ultimately, the daring, dark and debonair woods (cedarwood, wenge) leave a trail as striking and vigorous as the wake of the East India Clippers, fast, cargo-bearing ships bringing teas, for the Earl of Grey, back from Darjeeling and Assam.

    A fragrance as novel as (finally!) the sight of land on the horizon, and at the same time as reassuring as - tea.

Top Of Penhaligon'S Review
Lothair is a great perfume, a very beautiful fougère! It is good and consistent in all its phases. Especially the balance between tobacco and somethin...g of fig, with a special personality. And most importantly: Lothair "sounds good and for a long time" because it is not as weak as Quercus, and English Fern, and it's not as heavy as Sartorial. An additional aesthetic detail: the label has a beautiful combination of white, orange and dark blue, the box is made of wood - but do not like the look "wooden" of the box.  ... more

The Magic Of Time Review
Each time I visit England, it is a must to see The Orchard - Grantchester. It is a place where time stopped and I'm definitely in love with it. I wan...ted to take this complete feeling with me back home, so I told the charming lady at Penhaligon's in Cambridge to suggest me the fragrance which would hold the memories of The Orchard within. She recommended LOTHAIR. And she knew what she was saying! As if described by Rupert Brooke: "Where Beauty and Beauty met,/ Earth's still a-tremble there, And winds are scented yet, / And memory-soft the air, / Bosoming, folding glints of light, / And shreds of shadowy laughter /Not the tears that fill the years / After. Lothair is pure magic. Thank you :)  ... more

Rebecca Review
Lothair smells like a forest in the summer. The woody base notes are brightened by sun-warmed ferns and woodland foliage, with berry top notes lending... a whisper of sweetness and, thanks to the juniper, a naughty hint of gin! Ambergris ensures the lasting effect of this scent on skin, adding a gorgeous depth that, with the smoky tea, evokes a wonderful sense of intrigue. The forest is mysterious.. This is my partner's preferred scent, and I love the the way it lingers on his skin. I find this fragrance extraordinarily elegant, a scent for the sophisticated.  ... more

Memories ....Of Things Past And Still To Come Review

Evoking impossible memories of past voyages on spice laden tea clippers this invigorating scent is perfect for inspiring your own daily expeditions .....  ... more

Magic Every Time Review
It started with a whiff outside Penhaligon's shop in Paris - Lothair sprayed on a ribbon. It instantly caught me, the scent sending me off to far away... places in another time. With a bottle at home and a spare in my travel kit, I now enjoy the magic of Lothair every day, every time.  ... more

I both this fragrance recently. It is a very particular fragrance, unusual but really impressive. It is at the same time light but consistent. I like ...most the back fragrance of the wood that comes after few minutes that give you an exotic aroma. I will recommend such fragrance to everyone who like something particular, that catch immediately the attention.   ... more

Another Great Penhaligons Men'S Fragrance Review
I tried a few of the new men's Penhaligons fragrances at the Burlington Arcade shop yesterday. Always so difficult because there's so many good ones ...to choose from, but this was a clear winner for me. I like the grapefruit tang at the beginning, which settles down into a warm fragrance, which has, so far, lasted all day - without it being overpowering or cloying. Highly recommended. The staff at Burlington Arcade shop are very helpful, as well.  ... more
