Lasting And Captivating
I bought this in the sale along with Kensington Amber. It is absolutely gorgeous and the scent lingers all day, changing through the various notes, as Penhaligon's perfumes do so well. I think Kensington Amber is my absolutely favourite of the two and has probably taken top place with my usual list of Malabah, Bluebell and Iris Prima but Belgravia is up there amongst them. Love it and a bargain - don't discontinue it please!
i am addicted.. I can't find any other scent that feels so nice on my skin. I am your devoted client for many years to come.
I received a generous set of samples of the Hidden London gems and, so far (still in the process of trying it all), this one has caught my heart and my breath. I must say it starts out a bit weird and almost medicinal to me. At this stage I could not stop sniffing my inner wrists, trying to identify what was going on, and whether if pleasant or not, or.... Pink pepper for sure, and certainly raspberries were all there, as dutifully listed. Then the magic starts to unfold: the sweet raspberry slowly yields to a fresh delicate rose, and the tea leaves in the background allude to a faint watercolour of pinks and sage greens. The raspberries are still there, very faintly and mildly sweet, but the roses are splendid in their pale pink freshness and, in all their coy modesty, fight and triumph over the other notes, albeit humbly and subtly. Everything seems to me, to slowly take a secondary role: hints of patchouli and resin have all supporting roles to this ephemeral beauty, the Rose of May, which becomes more transparent as time goes by, as if saying a fondfarewell to her scented companions. And I cannot but think of Pierre Ronsard's poem, "Mignonne, allons voir si la rose", which at one stage wisely declares: (Puis qu')une telle fleur ne dure Que du matin jusques au soir This will much probably be my next acquisition from Penhaligon's. Thank you for the beauty, I love it.
