Portraits Fragrances Revisited – Et in Belgravia Ego.

Penhaligon's Times

Penhaligon's Times

It’s been a few years since the esteemed Portraits family took permanent residence in Penhaligon’s stores around the world. The ever-growing Portraits fragrance collection continues to offer something for everyone. What it is that makes our Portraits scents so appealing? And how do they compare to other Penhaligon’s fragrances? Let’s find out.

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.


If you’re yet to try a Portraits fragrance, allow us to introduce you.
