So this is love. An intoxicating, mysterious fragrance: vigorous grapefruit, Levantine spice and rose tangle in the moonlight. But what’s that upon the riverbank? Could it be the fabled black rose?

The Scent That Turns Heads

The most beautiful scent I have ever smelt. It is truly such a complex and very opulent scent. So many layers to the smell. When I wear it, it makes me feel so empowered and it really completes me. You only need a small amount as it is very strong and long lasting.

Colourful And Vibrant

First impression: heavy notes dominate the lot. You get hit by a zesty-sweet spice, followed by Patchouli in abundance. Accompanied by a bunch of flowery notes. Opulence is the right word to describe it. Maybe a little bit too much of the very heavy scents. It lasts for days, but do you want it to?

Wonderful Exotic Fragrance

A beautiful, complex scent which develops throughout the day and makes me feel very special every time I wear it. It is exotic and envelops you in a luxurious spicy scent. The fragrance isn’t at all cloying or heavy but has the perfect balance of notes.

I have tried a number of fragrances with this house. This parfum-Halfeti- is the one which gets the most response when out and about among my acquaintances. It was stronger than I anticipated so I was putting a wee bit too much on. I normally wear colognes. But, I find myself going back to it more often and really enjoying it. Being a parfum, it last longer. Excess within control here. Please. Women also apply this fragrance. Keep an eye on your bottle - it is sure to gain admirers. I do enjoy it very much!!

Amazing Take On A Rose

This is dark and less floral than you would expect from a perfume built around a rose. Its an exceptional fragrance. My wife and I both wear Halfeti, I would recommend this to anyone looking for something deep and unique.

I tried this today after hearing the devastating news that Elixir is going to be discontinued (Bought more to keep in stock) The good news is Halfeti is AMAZING, fell in love with it and I am now excited about wering this with the pride it deserves. Thank you to all in it's creation.

The Best Oud Scent You Can Get

I have Aqua di Parma Oud which I thought was great and got so many compliments but this is better. I tried Floris oud but not as good. Nothing beats Halfeti . I want to find something else but keep coming back this.

Beautiful Addition To The Trade Routes

This is a beautiful fragrance. The oud comes through but its the fruity elements that are the stars in this creation. The scent develops amazingly. A worthwhile purchase and a great addition to any collection. Thanks Penhaligon's for another amazing creation
