Penhaligon's HK - The Best Penhaligon Fragrances That You Should Get in Hong Kong

Established in 1870, Penhaligon’s was originally a hairdressing salon located near the former Turkish baths on Jermyn Street in central London. Its founder, William Penhaligon, was inspired by the aromas of the baths and he soon diversified into fragrances.

Still made and bottled in England, Penhaligon’s scents are created using the finest rare ingredients, such as jasmine and hand-squeezed bergamot, and the fragrance house has long been a supplier to the British royal family. The perfumer eagerly explores the latest fragrance technology, so each time you open one of Penhaligon’s ribbon-wrapped bottles, you’re experiencing the beauty of British tradition alongside modern developments.

Penhaligon Artemisia

Artemisia is a beautifully silky fragrance inspired by romantic tales from Greek Mythology and named in honour of Artemis, the Goddess of the hunt whose symbol was the Moon. At the base of Artemisia is a creamy, almost caramel sweet blend of vanilla and amber, which unfolds underneath a lunar veil of jasmine, violets, and lily of the valley and delicate top notes of orchard fruits and crisp green foliage.

Penhaligon Elixir

Elixir is a modern interpretation of its original fragrance Hammam Bouquet, with Turkish Rose carrying the thread through time. Dramatic stone floors of Hammams are conjured through the mineral facets of incense, smoky guaiac wood, and resins. The harmonising oil of eucalyptus is spiced cardamom and mace, as the decadence of these exotic baths is suggested with blooms of Turkish rose and jasmine.

Penhaligon Ellenisia

Ellenisia is a reimagined fragrance from the Penhaligon’s archives, a magical and sultry white floral bouquet. Extravagant fruity tuberose, wrapped in layers of creamy gardenia, jasmine and rose drizzled in plum nectar. Mandarin and violet leaf convey an unexpected freshness at the opening, merging into the hypnotic white florals into a decadent base of vanilla.

Penhaligon Endymion

Named after Zeus's most handsome son - a Greek God in a perpetual slumber and forever young, the Penhaligon Endymion exudes a classic elegance with a sparkle of bergamot, suede, coffee, and geraneum. A unique unisex scent that accentuates men's masculinity and balances women's femininity by enhancing their sultriness. Opening with distinct notes of lavender, bergamot, sage and mandarin, this perfume is complemented with base notes of nutmeg, black pepper, cardamom, leather, incense and myrrh.

Penhaligon Lothair

This woody fragrance welcomes you into a whole new world with notes of red berries, juniper berry, cardamom, bergamot, grapefruit, and fig leaf, harmonising with special ingredients like fig milk, lavender, magnolia, geranium, and black tea. With a spritz of this, you'll be transported to a foreign shore that reminds you of the British tea-drinking culture. To spruce up your scent a little, layer this scent with a citrus-based eau de toilette to create a bespoke aroma that is long-lasting yet not overpowering.

Penhaligon Vaara

Vaara was a private commission for His Highness Maharaja Gaj Singh II to commemorate the birth of his Granddaughter, Princess Vaara. Reflecting the Maharajah's romantic experience of his home in Jodhpur, Vaara captures the spirit of the lush summer gardens at Balsamand Palace and the balmy evening breeze inhaled from atop the Mehrangarh Fort.
