  • Conforming to the expectations of his class, Duke Nelson married the most coveted girl in London: the Duchess Rose.

    Yet the Duke is eccentric and unusual, his whimsical airs set society tongues wagging. Rumours abound that his marriage is yet to be consummated!

    His perfume is as ambivalent as he is: a floral yet masculine woody fragrance.

Mysterious Review
This was my second foray into the Portraits series, and is kind of an antonym to my first (Roaring Radcliffe). When they say it's ambiguous, they're ...right! This could almost be a unisex scent, both floral and woodsy. It's fresh but also has an undercurrent of a more masculine smell. It feels a little like you can't quite figure it out. I would love for my entire house to smell like this one, actually.  ... more

True To The Image Review
I initially bought this because of the dog. I love dogs, so I figured why not. The scent is not too overpowering. Some scents feel to scream masculini...ty, others are too feminine. However, this is the perfect in between. Its floral notes create a welcoming scent. However, the lasting notes of Gin show strength and personality. Also, my dog loves the scent. She is all over me whenever I wear this cologne. I definitely know why they chose a dog for this particular portrait.  ... more

A Warlock Review
There are too many perfumes in the market, there are mediocre and there are wonderful, even there are too many wonderful, among the latter, The Duke h...as touched my heart (and Pocket), when something touches your heart must be well led, at the time and place appropriate, even in private, nude looking out the window a Sunrise, reaching optimistic quote from your lover, and you leave that luxury and timeless aura, many do not dare to ask yourself what is your perfume, perhaps seem something feminine but not stop smelling it get closer to you, you know it and you feel good. I don't want to describe it and analyze it, that if you have class, that if the rose, that if gin... I like it so much!!! I think that The Duke is already a classic, Penhaligon's, you don't produce it.  ... more

This is simply divine. It smells like romance, confidence, and lust. Just purchased a second bottle for my boyfriend. He's tried almost the entire Pen...haligon's range and this is his favourite.  ... more

Much Ado About The Duke Eau de Parfum Review
If you are looking for an unusual rose fragrance, that's it. It is real beauty. Rose, heady sexy rose! With nothing waxy or overly balsamic. It's spic...y, cool with heady alcohol touch. First time I've tested it I smelled something boozy and that was quite unexpected and that's Gin! Cool, a bit piny and seducing. Love it! And it is very special indeed. I honestly can't think of any other rose scent that would be as fresh and elegant but at the same time as sexy as this one!Oh, and absolutely unisex. I find that men and women would love to smell it of opposite sex. I am judging a sample. The projection is quite moderate. It's noticeable but not too much. Best Penhaligon's for me:)  ... more

The Plot Thickens Review
Love all the PORTRAITS except perhaps Rose as I prefer more masculine scent. Waiting for the story to unfold, adding a gay member to the family would ...make it so much more interesting!  ... more

Never have a scent so special. It contains scents which seem so unrelated, yet smells so united.
