Transported by the breeze of Time to an era of Exploration and daring adventure, Penhaligon’s collection Trade Routes is infused by the vast array of exotic ingredients that arrived into the London docks at the end of the 19th century .
Known as the Warehouse of the World, the docks were dense with the opulent and the fantastical and the air overhead filled with a fragrant pot pourri. Tea, spice, silk, pearls, rum; all found on the homebound Clipper merchant ships, menaced by privateers and pirates and serenaded by the Trade Winds.
Come, come, this way, 12 Duke of York Street is the address. Round the corner - in time and place.
A haven, a hammam, a hiatus from the grey and the grime.
