Today, Penhaligon's scents are still made in England using the finest rare ingredients; from hand-squeezed bergamot, to jasmine at twice the price of gold.
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.
Their fragrant adventure began in the Victorian era of decadence and carries us into the future as we 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.
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.
