WELCOME TO THE FAMILY, THE INIMITABLE MR. PENHALIGON
When Mr Penhaligon first made cologne (for royals and nobility,) he had set up in Mayfair, (the centre of Old-World civility).Our Dear Queen Victoria, and the Shah of Persia soon wore his scent, and the request for a Royal Warrant had swift regal consent. This was 1870, and the world was discovering what would one day be his legacy.
The above is all true.
Majestic and chic. Like a good friend, stimulating and comforting in equal measure. Like great art and music, uplifting. Composed in expert, meticulous detail, but with strong, confident brush strokes - William Penhaligon ́s own scent.
Beyond distinguished. A timeless classic, since 2020. Created with Vetiver, one of perfumery ́s master ingredients. Earthy, warm and fresh. Woven inside an Oriental structure, one of perfumery ́s mistresses of sophistication.
Bergamot & Jasmine
Vetiver, Incense & Cedar Wood
