I've mentioned how the day job has been keeping me busy haven't I? I've had a bunch of events going on but one of the more fun ones would definitely have to be Penhaligon's. Last week, we had a number of dapper English Gents wandering around Central showcasing gentlemanly behavior as a celebration of their ifc store opening. For those not in the know, Penhaligon's is one of the few true fragrance houses in the world. They design and make their own exclusive scents in England, going to great lengths to achieve precise effects. The brand is also a holder of two Royal Warrants and have been around since the Victoria Era.
My favourite scent from them is currently the Iris Prima which was done in collaboration with the English National Ballet and inspired by the scents of ballet. The perfumer was granted exclusive access to English National Ballet dancers Nathan Young and Lauretta Summerscales, as well as rehearsals and hushed glimpses from theatre wings to bottle it all up into this delicious scent where iris takes centrestage.
Besides doing their flagship store opening, we're also running a fun competition for them where you can win a full range of of of their signature scents, Blenheim Bouquet. All you have to do is make a suggestion of what you think a gent should do for a chance to win. Check it out at their Facebook page.
