At Scent Stories, we take immense pride in curating fragrances that resonate, and Penhaligon's is a brand that never ceases to fascinate. Here's a closer look.

The Legacy of Penhaligon's:

Founded in 1870 by William Penhaligon, a Cornish barber and perfumer to Queen Victoria, Penhaligon's began its journey with the renowned Hammam Bouquet, inspired by the Turkish baths of Jermyn Street, London. Today, the brand's offerings range from the classic to the contemporary, yet all encapsulate a certain British charm.
