My signature

Oh my goodness, where do I even begin with this scent?! It is quite simply divine. Perfection in a bottle and it looks stunning displayed on my vanity! This one is so deep and luxurious, I really feel so glamorous every time I wear it. Yet somehow, its the perfect scent for every occasion - it's still light and airy enough to wear during the day (which is why it immediately became my signature scent) but also deep and sultry enough for after-hours! It is remarkable how dynamic this fragrance is... IG @graciedarl

Fresh reminiscence

Memories of a beautiful day rush back as I catch the subtle notes of the Empressa: the fresh, fruitiness of the fragrance lingers not only in my mind, but on the veil that was placed so delicately on my head. The graceful scent that fills the bottle gives true to the name, and the vibrant green ribbon so finely wrapped around the neck adds to the elegance. It’s a special perfume; well-crafted, empowering, strong yet delicate. It’s the Empressa: bound to make you fall in love. @asmahsacha

All Hail The Empress

Courtly but also comely, Empressa undoubtedly leaves the heads you turn reeling from gentle wafts of quiet yet impressionable confidence through exotic spoils of refreshing citrus and warm florals. Truly, the elegance of an Empress comes from making a bold statement without so much of a word — the perfect scent for the perfect inner power. (Instagram: @la_ninners)

Nostalgic Prowess

With essences of fragrance past and a rich, but delicate aromatic blend of citrus, vanilla, patchouli and sandalwood, creates a beautifully floral, woodsy and citrus-based aroma. Both sweet and punchy - and with a luxurious Emerald green bow and case - you will be a woman to be reckoned with when wearing Empressa. After convincing my flatmate to purchase this because it is such a 'her' signature smell, I found I became enchanted with Empressa's nostalgic prowess and it will now forever hold a special place in my heart as it reminds me of a dear, dear friend.

A Delight

Empressa is a magical fresh and powdery scent that lingers in sensuality and elegance. It is most loved by those who envelope in it's super lightness and luxurious scent - my mum is a convert after relying on overpowering scents of high-end brands perfumes. It is the perfect day to night perfume with the scent of vanilla with hints of fruits and woody smells ever so present. The gorgeous bottle and green bow is a perfect encapsulation of it's luxury. I have the rollerball to accompany me on my trade routes travels. Empressa does impress! IG: babymelon

Best feminine fragrance ever!

When you get your first sniff of the sweet and fresh notes of this fragrance you can't help but love it! It is a very well balanced scent with feminine and elegant notes without being overpowering which makes it perfect for day and night use equally. The scent on the skin feels like a luxury treat and if you combine it with the matching body lotion it becomes a truly heavenly experience for all your senses. .

Shimmering.... yes!!

A sparkling chypre fragrance, silky and delightful to wear. Blood orange, mandarin and bergamot open over rose, geranium, cassis and cardamom. These facets give Empressa a sensual, floral, fruity, citrus feel over the slightly sweet fragrance of frankincense and caramel. Happy to see that the earthy and tart absolute of patchouli is present in the base. Shimmering.... yes!!

Beautiful Scent

Empressa was my first Penhaligon’s fragrance purchase and it is my favourite for daytime. Although it has beautiful citrus notes, it feels opulent and makes me feel special wearing it. It is incomparable with fruity scents I have tried before, much more complex and the fragrance lasts well during the day. It is a subtle yet luxurious scent which I love.

I was going to buy my usual blenheim bouquet fragrance and the manager offered this new fragrance to smell. I was impressed with the lightness of this and how it keeps a fresh feeling when I'm wearing this. Definitely recommended to everyone

Simply The Best

I was given a sample of heaven I believe (thank you Regent Street store). Recently discovered the wonderful world of Penhaligon's and although i love pretty much every perfume by this house, Empressa is my no.1 choice. It's so unique, spicy, pink, woody and fruity. All at the same time. Not overpowering but you know she's there. So simple yet so complicated. Absolutely fabulous. Christmas can't come soon enough (this is the only item on my list!)
