The history of Penhaligon’s

Having been in business in London for 145 years, British perfumer Penhaglion’s has a rich heritage

Theresa Harold,

Established in 1870, Penhaligon’s was originally a hairdressing salon located near the former Turkish baths on Jermyn Street in central London. Its founder, William Penhaligon, was inspired by the aromas of the baths and he soon diversified into fragrances.

Still made and bottled in England, Penhaligon’s scents are created using the finest ingredients, such as jasmine and hand-squeezed bergamot, and the company has long been a supplier to the British royal family. The perfumer eagerly explores the latest fragrance technology, so each time you open one of Penhaligon’s ribbon-wrapped bottles, you’re experiencing British tradition alongside modern developments.

Penhaligon’s, 125 Regent Street, London W1B 4HT, +44 (0)20 7434 2608
