Quercus, Endymion Concentre, Halfeti, Juniper Sling, Blenheim
This Christmas, Penhaligon’s elegantly presents a set of five legendary scents that are perfect for the special man in your life.
Quercus declares itself with a light burst of citrus and basil, supported by a heart accord of jasmine, cardamom and muguet that is sweet, spiced and supremely delicate. The greenness of the basil persists into the surprisingly resilient musk and sandalwood base notes. These are warmed through with moss and patchouli to create elegant, strong and uplifting cologne.
The first associations of sophisticated grooming and full bodied coffee is complemented with elegant hues of geranium, lavender and mandarin, nutmeg, resins and suede. A demi-lune, a semi-oriental.
A potion so delightfully intoxicating one falls immediately in love. Warm, strong and reassuring all at once. All respectability forgotten, we have travelled far, as far as Turkey! And here in Halfeti, the red roses appear black so intense is their magic.
The perfume is made with Gin berry Juniper freshness, a London herbal blend. It first teases with aromatic Angelica (root and seed). The heart next races to the vitality of cinnamon, pepper and cardamon. Orris creates a smooth melody of softer cherry-woods. Notes of leather, brandy - a liqorous, vigorous base - hit the spot.
A citrus cologne, with architecture far more formal,
crisp and aristocratic than a simple white shirt.
