Thanks, Interesting stuff. I can't wait to try those!
Thread: News for Penhaligons fans
Was snooping around Penhaligons this evening, and got the following updates from the very friendly and knowledgeable SA:
In June they will be re-releasing four of their old, discontinued fragrances, of which I can remember just three. One is a lime scent (presumably a gentleman's cologne), the other is Eau de Verveine, and the third is Night-Scented Stock. I'm not a florals gal, but I got a sneak preview of this and it was terribly pretty; a peppery, creamy floral with very good longevity.
She also mentioned that in September they would be releasing a 'sexy floral', which she described as a creamy carnation. I look forward to smelling that.
She was also very knowledgeable about layering, and recommended a layer of their Lavandula scent (lavender and light vanilla) with a layer of Racquets (citrus and musk). It was absolutely heavenly! It has been a terribly hot and humid day here in Cambridge, today, and this combination was both refreshing and soft. Really pretty!
Perhaps most interesting for me was that she pointed out that a couple of their scents had been created by Olivia Giacobetti and **** (oh, I forget his name, but I'm sure he created one of the Malles). They should make this more readily known!

I am not afraid... I was born to do this.

I know that Elixir was done by Olivia Giacobetti and is reportedly quite good.
I was not that impressed with their women's scents, though, they were a little 'plain' to me.
Love Potion No 9 is another one I'm curious about!
I really hope the carnation is a Giacobetti! I loved Elixir; it's gorgeous.
I think youre referring to Duchafour.
Here are the scents youre referring to:

My god, don't get me started on the scents Penhaligon should revive! I'm glad to hear about the Verveine and the lime scent, now if only they would exhume Sans Pareil (a sexy gentlemanly rose) and Esprit du Roi (superb classic dry notes cologne).
Thanks for the info....Endymion was my Sotd a few days ago and I enjoyed it all day.....Thanks again.
