    Omg David, this thread is 6 years old. I didn't realise it was still in the archives.

    My all time favorite among the classics would be Blenheim Bouquet- I just love it.

    Wow, a thread that was started before I got here ... and I've been here 6 years.

    Blenheim Bouquet gets my vote too.

    It's aloof and unapologetic.

    Just about as British as it gets.

    For me, Crown Sandringham. A nice muguet note.

    Follow this up with Sartorial.

    Maybe it does not qualify as traditional (launched in 2003), but Richard James EdT is the quintessential british perfume.

    A great one, whatever the vintage!

    My favourite is probably Penhaligon's Racquets formula. Actually in feel it reminds me of Habit Rouge, with its cheerful, fizzy citrus and powdery drydown. Does anyone know if the perfumer, Francis Pickthall, did anything else? The BN directory and Fragrantica have drawn blanks.

    I'm partial to Sartorial these days. Modern only in its date of release, it has a traditional feel to it.

    For me, penhaligons has to be the WORST fragrance house in the uk.
    lots of others like their frags, but I really hate all of them. TRUMPERS have some nice decent low end price range frags, sandalwood being my fave

    My choice for the BEST British fragrance?
    Ormonde Jaynes Four Courners Nawab of Oudh, has to be the best Brit frag I've ever tried.

    My favorite British scent without a doubt is Clive Christian No.1 Pure Parfum Limited - not traditional as stated by the OP, but one I cherish - so refined and smooth. By the way, since this is his thread, I miss not hearing from Prince Barry.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.
