The Fragrance Of Dapper

He recently visited Penhaligon’s for the first time. Established in 1870, Penhaligon’s knowledge and understanding of the power of scent is legendary. They create and develop original scents which began in Victorian era for the modern day man and woman.

With knowledge of fragrances from luxury brands, he was a tad nervous upon entering the store but as soon as he entered he was greeted with a welcoming smile by one of the staff.

“I’m looking for something…, Actually, I don’t know what I’m looking for, take me on a journey” he relayed to the staff member.

With that request he was indeed taken on a journey through the seven families of scents which Penhaligon’s use: Citrus, Aromatic, Chypré, Fougère, Floral, Woody and Oriental.

Not ashamed of being a novice and being spoilt for choice, he decided that it would be best to purchase a set of fragrances and experiment. That being said, 2 fragrances in particular attracted his attention with great intent.
Firstly, Opus with its woody, dry and fresh tone and secondly, the aptly named Sartorial, an award winning fragrance, created by master perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour, inspired by the cutting rooms of Saville Row.

Upon leaving, he couldn’t help but feel special about the service, the interior and his purchase, almost like a young wizard in Ollivanders.
