Shop Penhaligon's


It all started when Mr William Penhaligon, originally from rural Cornwall, arrived in the bustling city of London in the 1860s to seek his fortune. With skills as a barber, he set out with an open mind and his heart set on starting a business. To support his family he set up as a barber in hammam, the Turkish baths on Jermyn Street. This is how inspiration struck - Mr Penhaligon decided to bottle the wonderful aroma and with a creative flair, he blended what became the Hammam Bouquet.

William Penhaligon opened his own little perfumery shop in that same hammam in London in 1874, and Penhaligon’s was born. From Hammam Bouquet, Mr William Penhaligon was inspired by the exciting discoveries and adventures of the late nineteenth century, creating fragrances inspired by the world over. Penhaligon’s clientele list continued to expand, including the king of Persia and Queen Victoria, who were both impressed.

A quintessentially British institution, Penhaligon’s became Court Barber and Perfumer to Queen Victoria. From the iconic bottles, to the fragrance recipes that William Penhaligon himself wrote, Penhaligon’s today uphold the same dedication to quality that made Penhaligon’s so famous. With ingredients sourced from all around the world, the word on the street is that Penhaligon’s is still loved by A-listers and royalty to this very day.

 

What are the most famous Penhaligon’s perfumes?

  • Penhaligon’s Halfeti
    Inspired by traded goods from Turkey, this feminine fragrance is one with both guts and glory. At once light yet compelling, Halfeti draws on the strength of oud, sandalwood and resinous vanilla to create a spicy yet skin-close dream.

  • Penhaligon’s Empressa
    All her beauty, airs and graces couldn’t prepare you for that sharp-as-a-tack mind. A floral masterpiece floating over a sweetly tame base of cocoa, frankincense and amber, this Empressa is as much substance as she is style.
