Penhaligon’s Covent Garden perfumery is a bastion of great British taste and evocative scents, and, 135 years after it first opened in Jermyn Street, the smell merchant has launched a pop-up store on the other side of the city.
The shop is packed with 34 rare hand-squeezed scents, including Penhaligon’s trademark Blenheim’s Bouquet, and traditional British fragrance, Lily of the Valley.
They are packaged in beautiful glass bottles with ribbon-wrapped stoppers, modelled after the original bottle created by the store’s founder, William Penhaligon. Also on sale are manicure sets and men’s grooming products.
The most exciting feature is Penhaligon’s scent-profiling service and advice on layering fragrances – which will help you create either your own bespoke scent, or a unique gift.
It might be too late for Christmas, but quality perfume
is an anytime treat.
