Halfeti

$5.00

Launched in 2015, as part of British Fragrance house Penhaligon’s, Trade Routes Collection, Halfeti was inspired by the lavish goods traded with Turkey by the Levant Company; exotic florals, spices, soft leathers and precious fabrics, says Penhaligon’s website and is named for the black roses that grow in the Turkish village of Halfeti.

The Coveted Duchess Rose

$5.00

Launched in 2016 as part of Penhaligon’s Portraits Collection, the Coveted Duchess Rose, like the other fragrances in the series is centred on a character in a fictional Victorian aristocratic household. Each character has their own story, making the collection a family of fragrances - literally.

The stories are great fun and the fragrances are all FBW, and I know I’ll end up buying all of them, but right now, I’m stuck on the Coveted Duchess Rose.

No. 33

$4.00

Launched in 2015 to commemorate the 145th anniversary of the founding of English niche fragrance house Penhaligon’s, No.33 is named for the Penhaligon’s shop at 33 St James Street in London.
William Penhaligon was a Cornish barber who moved to London in the 1860s. Along with his son Walter, he created and sold skin treatments, tonics, and scents for men and in 1870 he founded his eponymous fragrance house. In 1874, he opened his first boutique on Jermyn Street. A little while later he opened his second shop at 33 St James Street.

Ostara

$6.00

Launched in 2015, by English fragrance house, Penhaligon’s Ostara, is a fragrance inspired by daffodils.

Daffodil is the common name for the narcissus plant. Part of the amaryllis family, narcissus has been cultivated since ancient times. In fact, the word narcissus comes from the Greek word ‘narke’ which means stupor or numbness – a reference to the heady, narcotic, sweet, green-laced scent of the flower. To me, daffodils smell the way spring feels.

Amaranthine

$4.00

Amaranthine was launched in 2009 by Penhaligon’s, the English niche fragrance house.

Penhaligon’s was always a bit of a fussy line for me and very few of their scents grabbed me, until Cradle Holdings bought the line in 2009. They upped their game by commissioning noses like Bertrand Duchaufour and Olivia Giacobetti to create some exciting frags - Juniper Sling, Sartorial, Vaara and Peoneve - that revitalized the line and made it more relevant to me. That relevance started in 2009 with Duchaufour’s tropical treat Amaranthine.

Vaara

$5.00

 
Vaara’s creation was inspired by the Royal House of Marwar-Jodhpur in Rajasthan, India and the fragrance is named for the granddaughter of His Highness Maharaja Gaj Singh II in order to celebrate her birth and the family’s love for the city.
 
The name Vaara in Sanskrit means one who is the best, or the blessed one. It’s a beautiful name to hear, and speak, and also, as it turns out, to smell.

Peoneve

$4.00

Launched in 2012 by Penhaligon’s, Peoneve is described on their website as “an exquisite portrayal of an English garden in summer, bursting with lush green foliage and heady with the scent of blossoming flowers. At the garden’s heart grows the radiant Peony flower…”

An English garden in summer? I’m up for that.

Juniper Sling

$4.00

Launched in 2011, by Penhaligon’s, their web site describes Juniper Sling as “an intoxicating new fragrance inspired by the most iconic and atmospheric of spirits: London Dry Gin. Created for Penhaligon’s by Master Perfumer Olivier Cresp, Juniper Sling is a playful, chilled and mysterious homage to the Bright Young Things of London’s roaring twenties.

Inspired by London dry gin? Sounds like a little research is in order.

$4.00

Sartorial

$4.00

Sartorial is Bertrand Duchaufour’s nod to the classic aromatic fougère, but with updated twists that make it the perfect gentleman’s scent for the 21st century.
