THE MAN WHO SET A THOUSAND NOSES TWITCHING
Penhaligon’s story starts with our founder, William Penhaligon. A humble Cornish barber who rose to the Royal Court, and trimmed the Shah of Persia’s beard.
William’s first perfume was Hammam Bouquet, inspired by the Turkish Baths where he was resident barber, trimming the tresses of Mayfair’s bright young things. The fragrance was exotic. It was exciting. It caused quite a stir. The bright young things clamoured for more.
William, of course, obliged.
Luckily, he was no one-hit wonder. A slew of fabulous fragrances followed, catapulting this barber-businessman to the heights of British Society. But William’s most remarkable concoction was something else: a company that would build on his legacy.
Today, Penhaligon’s is perhaps the world’s most esteemed fragrance house. We hold two Royal Warrants, and offer a dizzying array of unusual and electrifying scents to those with discerning noses, be they royalty or not.
Penhaligon’s think William would be rather pleased with how things have turned out.
Spritz a light mist of fragrance on your pulse points.
Do not spray onto clothing as the essential oils can cause garment discolouration or stains.
Do not spray near the eyes, cracked skin or open wounds as this could cause irritation.
