About Halfeti

Part of the Trade Routes collection. The company say:

Halfeti draws inspiration from the lavish goods traded with Turkey by the Levant Company; exotic florals, spices, soft leathers and precious fabrics. 

The fragrance is named for the stunning black roses that grow on the banks of the Euphrates river in the small Turkish village of Halfeti. Dark and mysterious, the roses are exceedingly rare as a result of the unique environmental conditions in which they are grown.

Reviews of Halfeti

Smells really similar to Acqua di Parma's Oud. It lasts just as long too. I don't have any previous history with Penhaligon's and I found this very impressive.

A luxurious, heady, spicy affair that literally blew my socks off. Very Un-Penhaligon's if you catch my drift? Penhaligon's are usually associated with light and airy old school type scents. This is the polar opposite. This really should come in a Black bottle and the juice should also be Black. It is a dark spicy fragrance. It smells very expensive and actually smells better in the air than it does directly on skin. Completely seductive and enchanting. Unisex but leaning masculine. Lasts well in excess of 10 hours with great projection. Will turn heads for sure.

A refreshing but spicy roses, woods and dry leather barbershop fougere style fragrance straight from the shipping receiving docks where Turkish spice traders unload their wares. Yes, there are dark Halfeti roses plus green lavenders added to a Ras-al-Hanout spice blend of saffron, cumin, nutmeg, cardamom and cinnamon - but nicely done and layered over tonka, amber, woods, patchouli, oud, and leather base notes.

At it's simplest this is a barbershop fougere fragrance warmed with some dark rose, a peppery spice array stirred and aged into a warm woods base. This is almost an incense, but definitely a rich masculine scent that derives an influence from Turkish trade routes on the high seas. This is not an oud fragrance or a saffron rose fragrance, although it has those things in it as well. I find Halfet to be a refreshing fougere with prickly spices and warm woods along with a creamy warmth from rose and amber made to splash on skin after a good clean up. I like this scent much more when I don't try to overthink it or categorize the fragrance for more than what it might be. It smells good. I think this is one of Penhaligon's best new fragrances and appropriately illustrates historical and cultural discovery through trade in far away and exotic ports of call. A very Penhaligon's theme and well done.

Reminds me of Polo Supreme Oud, except I prefer the Polo better as this one is too thin and synthetic. Lasts 24+ hours on skin and has good projection.

Inoffensive unisex oud based (not a dominant note) complex oriental fragrance I would envision for Arabs who aren't super-rich, although this isn't cheap it's not super expensive. The sample I tried dissolved quickly, opens quite sharp with a soft, pleasant dry down.

Starts promising, ends mediocre.
The opening has good note. Plummy bergamot. A melange of spices, well blended and not sweet. Is there a eucalyptus note? Something is minty here. Perhaps it is the cypress -- if so, well done. The leather is mild, the oud is restrained, the resins are robust and pleasant. To this point, all is well done and subtle. Here is a low-key, dry oriental -- commendable in that regard. Patchoulie and vanilla are very minor elements, certainly not problematic.
And then (as others have noted) a rather shallow synthetic note appears and it is on that note that the scent dwells for the rest of its time on earth (or my skin).
So in sum, the scent is not bad but not brilliant. Probably does not warrant its price tag.
