British perfumery Penhaligon’s was established in 1870 by William Penhaligon. Originating as a barbershop, Penhaligon’s offered its first fragrance in 1872, Hammam Bouquet, inspired by the neighbouring Turkish Bath and its sulfurous steam. The company’s best-selling fragrance, 1902’s Blenheim Bouquet, broke with the prevailing floral trends of its day to enchant with zesty citrus, spices and woods. In 1956 Penhaligon’s was granted a Royal Warrant for the manufacturing of toiletries. The company was granted a second Royal Warrant in 1988 by Diana, Princess of Wales, whose favourite perfume was their Bluebell scent. The company specialises in fine, traditional perfume ingredients and techniques. Penhaligon’s today offers a line of bath and body care products and luxury shaving and grooming accessories to complement its fragrances.
