About Blasted Heath

One of two fragrances (the other being Blasted Bloom), inspired by the extreme, wild and passionate British landscape; that moment where the Land meets the Sea and untamed energy explodes.

Reviews of Blasted Heath

Blasted Heath lasts a long time which is nice. At the end of the day I still smell mossy. However the fragrance fell out of favour with me. It must be something in the tobacco or wood notes of the fragrance that's a bit sulphur & mercaptan. One day I took the train and there was something in the diesel smell of the train station that matched an element of the Penhaligon's cologne. Now the fragrance is like one of those mistakes in a movie that once you see it, you can't un-see it. Blasted Heath now reminds me of diesel and train stations. So Penhaligon's if you're listening, there's something not quite right with this one. The seashore notes of Blasted Heath are nice, but I think I prefer Kenzo pour Homme as a fresh water scent. Kenzo pour Homme has vetiver and bergamot which adds freshness, and none of the whiskey and tobacco which I think are a mistake in Blasted Heath.

This is an aquatic sent. I have to consider that if the name was different, I may have liked it more. I was expecting Heath, but it is more seaside. It reminds me of a limited edition Floris fragrance from 2012 that was designed to capture England in a bottle, which worked very well. It is also similar to some of the Aqua di Parma offerings. I found something about it synthetic and that is non-starter for me.

Blasted disappointing, is my verdict. While the official description is absolutely great, the reality is totally different. Where are the green leaves and the tobacco? Where is the whisky accord? I would love to smell the smoky notes of Alaskan cedarwood, it's one of my favourite materials. But you must be joking, surely, about these ingredients playing any significant role. All marketing hype, I suspect.

It's actually a pretty established and familiar type of fragrance encountered for example in the EdT "Faconnable". Quite inferior to its sibling Blasted Bloom, which does evoke the seaside quite well.

"Heath" -- an area of open uncultivated land, especially in Britain, with characteristic vegetation of heather, gorse, and coarse grasses.
OK, sounds good and the sort of thing I would like.
My question to Penhaligon -- what has the ocean to do with the heath? Heaths are not usually seaside.
This is an aquatic scent, make no mistake. That sort of scent is not something I particularly like. Thus, I wind up damning this with (at best) faint praise.
Starts a bit sweet but that is typical of aquatics. Various green notes appear, reasonably well done. A noticeable mineral/metallic/salty-iodine note establishes itself as the centre. The seaweed has made its appearance. Briny green. Bit synthetic but not bad if you want an aquatic green-vegetal scent. Not up to the usual Penhaligons form -- or a brand-new venture -- take your pick.

An insanely long lasting and powerful as well as insanely bad, mall-oriented woody-herbal aquatic that you can't tell apart from a plethora of other similarly themed super-mainstream fragrances.

So cheap and uninspired to make even an Avon fan horrifying.

It gets slightly better after a dozen hours but boy it's painful to get there.

Thumbs up.

Clean and soothing. Absolutely wearable. Fresh, blue-greenish and crispy. I see it sitting very well in a blonde clean-cut guy.

The scent is not groundbreaking in itself and it might remind you to other perfumes, but it has an edge, something bitter, odd and moisty like mud or wet grass or swamp (but in a good way) that makes it a slightly special, not unique.

Otherwise, very casual perfume, easy to wear, young, office friendly, nice, cute, softy, save, gentle and summery.
