    Sartorial




    then
    Opus 1870
    Blenheim Bouquet
    LP no.19


    The gap exemplifies amount of like between Sartorial and the rest.

    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'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.

    Lp9-always first
    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.

    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.

    I love Racquets which for some reason you cant find anymore - well not here in the UK.

    Also Opus 1870, English Fern, Lp No 9,

    Sartorial is not bad but I think its more of an older mans scent,

    Theres more that are nice but cant remember which ones
