The Penhaligon's Story
Over 135 years since the doors of the Penhaligon's barber shop first opened on Jermyn Street, William's hugely precious archives continue to inspire and inform everything we do. Our passion is to carry on his incredible legacy of creative and innovative perfumery, challenging the traditions of the art and seeking new ways to interpret elegance.
We continue to work with master perfumers who can interpret our distinctive ideas; conjuring up new perfume sensations that flow against the tide.
A hand-written formula by William Penhaligon Contradictory ideas don't come bolder than our best-selling men's fragrance Blenheim Bouquet . At its launch 1902, this was a brave new direction. Citrus based, it opposed the rich, heavy florals that were feted at the time. The world soon caught up with William's way of thinking.
Today, our scents are still made in England using the finest rare ingredients - from hand squeezed bergamot, to jasmine at twice the price of gold. Our signature Penhaligon's fragrance bottle is to William's original design: clear glass with a distinctive ribbon-wrapped stopper.
