Penhaligon’s Endymion Cologne

 Penhaligon’s: Head notes – Bergamot, mandarin, lavender, sage Heart notes – Geranium, coffee absolute  Base notes – Vetiver, nutmeg, black pepper, cardamom, musk, leather, sandalwood, incense, frankincense, myrrh My thoughts: Straight from the bottle; it is rich, smoky, bittersweet, musky, warm, cosy, enveloping. Stronger and more long-lasting than  the average cologne. Love it on my man.

Penhaligon’s Orange Blossom Eau de Toilette

Sensual and heady, this is not your typical floral perfume. The orange blossom accord usually smells like a white flower with a hint of citrus. But this orange blossom hits and seduces instantly. Interpreted from the brand’s original 1976 cocktail, it is part of the Anthology series. Head Notes: Neroli, Violet leaf, Bergamot, Lemon-cedrat, Cardamom absolute, Pink berries Heart Notes: Orange absolute, Egyptian jasmine absolute, Tuberose absolute, Rose essence, Peach flower, Orchid Base Notes: Sandalwood, Virginian cedar, White musk, Vanilla It reminds me of the flowers that bloom on warm balmy nights, make me pause in mid-stride and take a deep breath. This is not a light and refreshing scent, but it’s a good choice for the day. Bring along a little vial in your purse; it might not last as long as you’d like it to in humid weather.
