  • A most ferocious matriarch, known for her sharp mind, even sharper wit and a secret fondness for the company of young men and scones!

    A fragrance that has impeccable manners. Refined and thoroughly reassuring. Both are misleading.

    Revenge. It's even better than biscuits.

One Of A Kind Review
I know many perfumes, but this one got my attention because it's very different. It starts off with the scent of berries and ginger, later on vanilla ...(tonka bean?) and an almost curry-like flavor kick in, making "The Ruthless Countess..." somewhat gourmandy without being sweet. Ginger and cashmeran stay longest on my skin, lasting for about 6 hrs. on skin and much longer in clothing. Probably not a scent for everyone - make sure you give it some time to test -, but then: Who wants a scent that's for everyone?  ... more

New Classic Review
Finally something new (and I get to test perfumes constantly as I am a blogger)! This one hits me. It's a keeper: mysterious , unique, deep and at the... same time not heavy. Can't stop smelling it and can't remember having experienced that (except from smelling men).  ... more

Smell Is Amazing...But Not Long-Lasting Review
I absolutely adore this fragrance - it's gingery, biscuit-y (without being cloying or over-sweet) and there's something really interesting about it. I... normally go for Halfeti everything so thought I would branch out and try something new. I can't get it to last on my skin for more than about an hour. Doesn't happen with any other Penhaligon's fragrance - Empressa, Yasmine, Halfeti all last on me, but not this. And with no body creams, shower gels or other products to help it go that bit further, it's too expensive for me to justify buying another bottle of it, given the amount I have to spray to get it to "stick".  ... more
Would you recommend it? : Don't Know

Sweet & Elegant Review
Recommended by a lovely sales person who knows I use Halfeti and Juniper Sling at Regent Street branch and instantly loved the scent despite I normall...y prefer uni-sex scent. Something very pleasing about this scent. Not complicated, sweet, simple and elegant. Also love Load George and Duke and they are now my wish list.  ... more
