The Favourite

Waiting won't do for this lady. She knows exactly what goes on behind Palace doors, and her golden mimosa sways society's opinion. Her majestic scent of iris and musk greets with a darling smile as she begins to emerge on a sandalwood stage.

To The Favorite, This is a beautiful story inspired by Sarah Churchill bring it to the feminine and bold floral scent with a fresh zesty Mandarin and Bergamot as opening with a blend of violet leaf! Velvety oversized bow tie in pink with velvety finish trigger the powdery scents like orris, and later then mimosa and jasmine scent is well combined. The base with Indian sandalwood, amber and musk for the soft touches finish! This is one of my favorite perfume I will never forget! I loves to spray The Favorite at my skirt line and while I am waking the scent will surround around me! I always get compliments while I wearing The Favorite! From, Me, My Favorite!

Absolutely loving this fragrance. It was purchased for me by my sons. I'd never smelled it previously. It's certainly a little more powdery than my usual purchases but that's not a bad thing. I've had numerous compliments to date. It's my second favourite after Halfeti.

My new favourite

This was a blind buy for me. I love Penhaligon fragrances. My favourites are Artemisia, Luna and Empressa. I read the ingredients in this and thought what the hell. I’m not disappointed. This is my new ‘favourite’. It’s so pretty. Lightly floral, lightly powdery, extremely feminine with just the right amount of sweetness. Don’t me afraid to purchase if you like, pretty fragrances. This is perfection and the bottle is beautiful. Thank you for an amazing fragrance ❤️

optimism In a bottle

It’s more than a fragrance, it’s a feeling. A feeling of sunshine and powdery notes of Iris and sandalwood but honestly, the mimosa sold me. This fragrance is my 2020 fragrance, despite what’s going on in the world today this fragrance brings me joy and happiness. I’m looking forward to wearing it this summer when out with friends.

Make way for the Queen of Parfums

What I like about this beautiful fragrance is its queenly scent that leaves an evocative smell, hinting on playful memories and creates a luxurious air around one. There are not too many floral notes in this Eau de Parfum, but the golden mimosa is prominent, creating a sense of elegance in a powdery fashion, enveloped by the creamy layer of sandalwood. This baby-pink aroma is the perfect element to elevate one’s day, encapsulating the bold presence of The Favourite’s persona. If you want to feel opulent at minimal effort, then this is a must-have fragrance to have! @zena._

The Favourite, always has & always will

This bottle of wonder needs not be introduced. Here we have her wrapped up in a velvet bow waiting to be undone and to rest upon your skin. One may look shy but looks can be deceiving. She shall leave her mark of musc on you and the vanilla cloud will carry you through the day. What a playful sweet fragrance she is! The favourite : always has and always will be.
