Penhaligon's Douro Eau de Portugal Cologne

Head Notes: Geranium, Lemon, Lime, Mandarin, Bergamot, Lavender and Basil

Heart Notes: Neroli and Muguet

Base Notes: Labdanum, Oakmoss, Musk and Sandalwood

Created in 1911, this elegant cologne was created for Sir Percy Croft of the Croft port dynasty and named after the port producing region in Portugal; the Douro Valley. This stylish and mellow delight begins with sharp green limes and soapy bergamot, blending with garden fresh geranium and lily at the heart. Then the base notes of musk, oakmoss and sandalwood start to assert themselves, imparting a leathery quality. Underpinned with labdanum, a bitter resin that imparts a unique leathery note, Douro Eau de Portugal is a deep and intensely aromatic cologne.

Perfumer: M. Pickthall

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.
