Our Portraits collection is quite unique from the more traditional Penhaligon’s fragrances. One can tell at a glance at the intricately hand-drawn packaging designs by talented Icelandic illustrator Kristjana Williams.
Portraits perfume bottles are different, too, made with slightly heavier glass bases than our classic bottles. Each one is topped with a hand polished animal head, inspired by the character they represent.
To create the distinctive Portraits scents, we enlisted the help of some of the best noses in the industry – Alberto Morillas, Daphne Bugey, Marie Salamagne, Christophe Raynaud and Juliette Karagueuzoglou to name just a few.
Our Portraits collection has caused quite a stir around the world. Indeed, the exuberant family of scents has ushered in a new generation of passionate Penhaligon’s devotees.
With over 60 fragrances in our collections, we’re proud to say there truly is something for everyone at Penhaligon’s.
