Agarbathi – incensy and spicy and woody

Oh, Penhaligon's, when we first met, it was love at first sniff. That love burned bright for a long time, but like all relationships, we've had our ups and downs, our ebbs and flows. But we've hung in there, and our commitment has paid off, with some of the best fragrances produced by any niche line in the last few years, like Agarbathi.

Gardeners read blogs about gardening, cooks read blogs about cooking, and perfume bloggers read blogs about perfumes. As someone who writes about fragrance, I can tell you there is no shortage of perfume bloggers out there. Over time, I've come to rely on a few and investigate others, depending on what I want information about. Want to know about new launches?  Go to Now Smell This.
