Penhaligon’s Essences Of Esteem Await You

We’re sure you’ve missed the great waft of Penhaligon’s that greets you as you step into our fabulous boutiques. Perhaps – heaven forbid – you have even forgotten some of the most iconic scents to grace Penhaligon’s shelves during the time that the doors of our boutiques have been firmly close. But, no matter, just in time for the reopening of our splendid stores, allow us to refresh your memory as to the most refreshing fragrances you’ll find there, as well as so much more.​

They’ll assist marvellously with the impression you make on others at your next picnic in the park or visit to the school gates.​



Rich, noble, deceptive. Like our patriarch, this woody perfume has secrets.



Every family has its secrets. But some have more than others. So, discover a fragrance family quite unlike any other, where nothing is quite as it seems. Portraits is a tribute to the good old English spirit: stiff upper lip, caustic humour, and a knack for provocation. What lies behind their good manners? Perhaps it’s time to find out.​

Trade Routes


What gifts will the ships bring home? Tea, spice, silk… Revel in our most exotic perfumes and journey to a bygone era of exploration and daring discovery. Trade Routes is infused with the vast array of decadent ingredients that sailed into the London docks at the end of the 19th century.​

Treasures Await

Juniper Sling Unboxed

This eau de toilette is a gin lover’s delight. Better make it a double.



We’ve picked up many a story since our humble beginnings in 1870. Legends of Jermyn Street, rumours of St. James. Rifle through Penhaligon’s library of British Tales, where we boldly celebrate our illustrious history, as well as our glorious present. When it comes to education, neglect your nostrils no more. After all, aside from a book, the best place to stick one’s nose is a sublime scent.​
