THE ORIGINAL, WILD & CREATIVE SCENTS OF TODAY
Established in London in 1870, Penhaligon's fragrant adventure began in the Victorian era and is still vibrant today, with its dedication to create original scents for the discerning eccentrics of today. The spirit of William Penhaligon, the founder, touches everything in the House. An Englishman living in an age of excess and flamboyance, William Penhaligon was witty, wildly creative and always inspired by the unusual.
His first creation, Hammam Bouquet in 1872, was dreamt up after inhaling the steam and sulfurous aromas of his neighbouring Turkish baths. These were wild ideas for wild times, and it is still the way the House works today. Over 145 years since the doors of the Penhalingon's barber shop first opened on Jermyn Street, William's hugely precious archives continue to inspire everything the House does.
