Established in 1870 by barber William Penhaligon, this house embodies the English concept of a traditional patrimonial perfumer dedicated to the creation of perfumed stories. Heirlooms with a twist form the foundations for this house, from the original Hammam Bouquet fragrance dating from 1872 – inspired by the scent of the Turkish baths beside the first of Penhaligon’s barber shops on Jermyn Street in London – to the latest perfumes such as Luna, released in 2016. Every creation explores facets of high perfumery, defying the traditions of the art and searching for new ways of interpreting elegance. Penhaligon’s passion for ingredients is quintessentially English, along with the fact that the fragrances are still produced in the UK, using the finest and most expensive raw materials. Penhaligon’s perfumes are available in the firm's own boutiques and in selected refined shops around the world, including Skins Cosmetics.
