Penhaligon’s is in my eyes one of the classiest brand ever. The bottles of perfume look vintage, the packaging is beautiful and unique. And the smell, incredible. Honestly, I had never smelled such a fragrance before. Not heady (old perfumes tend to be too strong), but delicate. It almost smells like a refined soap.
My best friend offered to me a beautiful box of miniatures, which permitted me to discover the scent of them. I wanted one for a long time but didn’t dare to order one, since it’s quite expensive. One of my favorites is Artemisia: powdery, floral and fruity, this fragrance is delicate and feminine. The other day, I realised there was sales on the website, it was the occasion to order it, with a rose-scented candle. This latter fills my room with a subtile warm smell, perfect for winter days. Recieving such a parcel made my day.
What is more, this brand was created under Queen Victoria’s reign. If you know me, you know how I’m fascinated by the Victorian Era: culturally, scientifically, socially, politically, it was a groundbreaking moment. This period was a time when lifestyle, decorating, fashion became important so if you love aestheticism and decoration, you’ll be interested. By the way, I’m currently watching the Victoria TV show, and I looove it. I know it’s quite romanticized but my romantic heart succumbed. This TV show is also very pleasant to watch, the house decorations and clothing are remarkable, aswell as the music.
