"The below is all true."

When Mr. Penhaligon first made cologne (for royals and nobility), he had set up in Mayfair, (the center of Old-World civility). Dear Queen Victoria and the Shah of Persia soon wore his scent, and the request for a Royal Warrant had swift regal consent. This was 1870, and the world was discovering what would one day be his legacy.​

Why we’re addicted: His fragrance is majestic and chic. Like a good friend, stimulating and comforting in equal measure.


Bergamot, Jasmine, Vetiver, Incense, Cedar Wood, Sandalwood, Ambrox.

Composed in expert, meticulous detail, but with strong, confident brush strokes - William Penhaligon ́s own scent. ​

Beyond distinguished. A timeless classic, since 2020. Created with Vetiver, one of perfumery ́s master ingredients. Earthy, warm and fresh. Woven inside an Oriental structure, one of perfumery ́s mistresses of sophistication.​

Brand Info

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 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.
