Thread: favourite Penhaligon's scent?
sorry, but want to renovate my wardrobe for the cold season, thanx to all who answered previous threads your suggestions were all very helpful!
Elixir for winter.
I have tried most of them and like Opus 1870 the best.
Endymion is lovely for winter time, as well as LP.
However, my favourite are their Eau de Cologne and Castile, both pure class in a bottle

I have not smelled the entire line but I do love Sartorial.

Racquets perfect mix USA/UK barbershop vibe with European Barbershop vibe.
PD:Sartorial not bad, but have a "medicinal touch" that don`t like
TOP 5: Antico Caruso, Penhaligons Racquets, Great Jones Bond nº 9, HDP 1725, Floris nº 89
I only have small decant of Opus 1870 and I really like it.

I've only tried a few of them, but Sartorial stood far out from those that I tried.
I've only tried a few of them, and realized I liked LP No. 9 and Elixir. I'm saving up for a small bottle of the former. Hope to find it online as I don't want to pay an additional tax in NYC.
Sartorial is the only one I have right now. Endymion is really nice and I wish I still had it. None are really worth the price. They should really be priced like YSL scents, IMHO. My wife loves Artemesia for herself, but I don't like it.
Hammam Bouquet is the most beautiful Penhaligon's scent, but Blenheim Bouquet is the most wearable.
This is my house.
Opus 1870- simple yet very commanding
Elixir- brisk AND warm
Edymion- Contemporary yet reserved
Sartorial- Lords/Douro's city cousin
Esprit Du Roi- Wow! wood and leather
Eau Sans Pareil- Opus 1870's sophisticated, evening cousin
Enjoy your winter!

That i have used, Hammam Bouquet, then Duoro.
Sartorial has haunted me ever since i first smelt it in August, 2011. I cant explain why i haven't bought it yet.
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
Hammam Bouquet despite the quality of ingredients deteriorating recently.
Fine fragrance is alive; it breathes, unfolds and unravels with each passing hour....

My son likes Sartorial
Opus 1870, Blenheim Bouquet and Endymion, in no particular order.
As with many fragrance houses, some of Penhaligon's can be very polarising and really need to be sampled. English Fern, for example, is likely to be liked by anyone who likes a classic fougere, and if that's you then you're probably relatively safe to buy it. But Hammam Bouquet is very divisive - many love it, but I find it quite repulsive.
My favourite of the Penhaligon's I have tried is Sartorial, which I think is one of the very best fragrances I have tried - it's the only one I have bought a bottle of so far.
My second favourite is Endymion, but it has poor longevity on me.
Elixer is my very favorite. I never tire of it.
