Penhaligon's - Portraits Collection - The Inimitable William Penhaligon
The year is 1872. William Penhaligon has settled in the heart of London, in the Mayfair district, and creates his first Cologne. The perfume soon enjoys great popularity among royal and aristocratic circles: Queen Victoria and the Shah of Persia wear the fragrance - and Penhaligon's receives the honorary title of "supplier of the royal court".
Noble chic, majestic elegance: it just seems as if Mister Penhaligon entered the room in person. There is a generous touch of vetiver in the air - warm, fresh and earthy. The aromatic essence is the star of this perfume - royally accompanied by bergamot, jasmine, frankincense, ambroxan, sandalwood and cedarwood.
The sophistication of this perfume gives an idea of why Mister Penhaligon is the perfumer whom the ladies and gentlemen of high society trust.
