Win a Set of Two Classic Fragrances from Penhaligon's
Closing date: 30-09-2012
Our competition this month gives three winners a chance to win a set of two 100ml bottles of Penhaligon's best-selling classic English fragrances: Artemisia and Blenheim Bouquet.
Artemisia: Created in 2002, Artemisia is both floral and fruity with a beautifully sensual powdery dry down. It is caramel soft, sweet, powdery and silky. A tumble of green apples and nectarines are washed with jasmine tea and sprinkled with a luxurious medley of violet, cyclamen and lily petals. All this softly unfolds with great subtlety, surrounded with layers of honeyed vanilla, warm spices, a touch of amber and a hint of musk.
Blenheim Bouquet: Created in 1902 and taking its name from Blenheim Palace, Blenheim Bouquet is a bracing mix of citrus oils, spices and woods. Inhaling Blenheim Bouquet today it is hard to imagine it was created over one hundred years ago. It is a fragrance that has continually adapted to every twist and turn of its existence. Blenheim Bouquet is discreet, sensual and immaculately turned out with a flash of heritage flourish.
All About Penhaligon's
Penahligon's was established in 1870 by William Penhaligon, who opened a barber's shop in London's Jermyn Street. Just two years later he dreamt up Hammam Bouquet, after inhaling the steam and sulphurous aromas of his neighbouring Turkish baths.
Over the 135 years since the Penhaligon's barber shop first opened, William's hugely precious archives have continued to provide inspiration, and have established a legacy of creative and innovative perfumery, challenging the traditions of the art and seeking new ways to interpret elegance.
Penhaligon's range of 35 unusual and distinctive perfumes are still made in England and are still presented in the fragrance bottle that was William's original design: clear glass with a distinctive ribbon-wrapped stopper.
