Penhaligon's fragrant adventure began in the Victorian era of decadence and carries us into the future as they strive to create original scents for the discerning eccentrics of today. True modern dandies and bold women who are proud to go their own way.

Penhaligon's understands the emotive power of scent. It can unlock memories and open doors; it can stop us in our tracks, lost somewhere for a moment in time. Recollections triggered by a dusting or iris, a whisper of clove, a burst of juicy nectarine, a trail of smoky incense, a creamy lick of vanilla.

The spirit of William Penhaligon, the founder, touches everything they do. An Englishman living in an age of excess and flamboyance, William was witty, wildly creative and always inspired by the unusual.

Hammam Bouquet , his first scent, was dreamt up by William in 1872 after inhaling the steam and sulphurous aromas of his neighboring Turkish baths. These were wild ideas for wild times, and it is still the way we work today. Inspiration comes at the strangest moments and places: a magical moment, a stolen view, an idea crystallized.

Over 135 years since the doors of the Penhaligon's barber shop first opened on Jermyn Street, William's hugely precious archives continue to inspire and inform everything Penhaligon's does.

Their passion is to carry on his incredible legacy of creative and innovative perfumery, challenging the traditions of the art and seeking new ways to interpret elegance.

They continue to work with master perfumers who can interpret their distinctive ideas; conjuring up new perfume sensations that flow against the tide.

Contradictory ideas don't come bolder than their best-selling men's fragrance Blenheim Bouquet . At its launch 1902, this was a brave new direction. Citrus based, it opposed the rich, heavy florals that were feted at the time. The world soon caught up with William's way of thinking.

Today, the scents are still made in England using the finest rare ingredients - from hand squeezed bergamot, to jasmine at twice the price of gold. The signature Penhaligon's fragrance bottle is to William's original design: clear glass with a distinctive ribbon-wrapped stopper.
