A subtle oriental, Zizonia vibrates with an exoticism that takes in the oranges of summer and the spice of winter warmth. An odyssey of bergamot and coriander drifts into soft undulations (lavender and geranium) that discover energy and fortitude (black pepper, cumin and cardamom) before a rich journey into the unknown. First, an oasis of sweet orange, ginger and vetiver that lends balance to the mysteries that unfold in strength with precious woods, patchouli and amber. Invigorating and of substance. A revisited 1930s original cologne.
This fragrance, to me, feels like being wrapped in a warm and comforting hug. This was the first Penhaligon's I ever picked out for myself and it will... always be my favourite.
It's quite hard to pin down exactly what it smells like. The first spritz is very spicy and then it dies down to lavender, geranium, and patchouli on my skin. I especially love how it changes throughout the day.... more
