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.
Like a powerful swell breaking against the shore, Blasted Heath evokes the moment where the Land meets the Sea and energy explodes. A wave of aquatic freshness is enriched with salty seaweed and aromatic clary sage crashes into crunchy green leaves and the surprising transparent woodiness of Clearwood™. The earthy elegance of vetiver is textured by tobacco and whisky, atop an authoritative woody signature of patchouli, cedarwood and gaiacwood.
Penhaligon's - No.33 Eau de Cologne - 50 ml
No. 33 opens in an aromatic burst of crisp citrus, rustic armoise and clary sage alongside a bracing lavender note. Incredibly smooth, the heart is enriched by warming pepper, ginger and cardamom and fresh, rosy geranium. Tobacco, cedar and vetiver add a dry smokiness, balanced by the restrained sweetness of tonka, amber and vanilla.
Penhaligon's - Halfeti Eau de Parfum - 100 ml
Halfeti draws inspiration from the lavish goods traded with Turkey: exotic florals, spices, soft leathers and precious fabrics. The fragrance is named for the small Turkish village of Halfeti, where enchanting “black” roses grow on the banks of the Euphrates river. Dark and mysterious, the roses are an intense shade of crimson, so dusky they appear to be black.
Penhaligon's - Bayolea Eau de Toilette - 50 ml

Penhaligon's - As Sawira Eau de Parfum - 100 ml
As Sawira is a sensual and exotic blend, a truly unique treasure: a woody and resinous chypre of incomparable tenacity.

An intensely rich bouquet of roses, carnation and jasmine bursts into life, given an animalic warmth from labdanum and amber. The velvety, smoky drydown of guaiac, sandalwood and patchouli is supported by the resinous splendor of oud and myrrh, and sweetened by vanilla and musk.
As Sawira is a truly extravagant fragrance.

Penhaligon's - Sartorial Eau de Toilette - 50 ml
Sartorial is a contemporary interpretation of a classic Fougère; the traditional notes of oakmoss, tonka bean and lavender have been exquisitely stitched together with woods, ozonic and metallic effects, leather, violet leaf, honey and spices to create the perfect illusion of a tailor’s workroom. The modern thread running through Sartorial is beeswax; echoing the blocks of wax each thread is run across before stitching. This sweet smudged note ties together the more traditional elements; the oiled flash of shears cutting cloth, the rub of fabric beneath fingers, tobacco tinted cabinetry, puffs of chalk in the air and old paper patterns vanilla with age.
