Other than being a well-established perfumery, Penhaligon’s is also the Court Barber and Perfumer to Queen Victoria… although we think Her Royal Highness doesn't look like she needed a shave (Ha! We kid! We love The Crown!)
The perfume house helps you settle on a scent that's suited to your personality, thanks to the Fragrance Profiling questionnaire at every Penhaligon's outlet. To further drive home the idea of individuality, Penhaligon's reveals its "Personalise Your Penhaligon’s" service.
Available in-store at the Orchard ION outlet, patrons can opt for an assortment of adornments to go with your Penhaligon's fragrance. There is the Leather Fragrance Sleeve—in a variety of hues: Racing Green, Admiral Blue, Post Box Red, English Oak, Dorchester Pink, Marmalade, Clotted Cream and Earl Grey—that are handmade in Spain’s Ubrique, a region known for its craftsmanship. Then you can add a monogram to the textured leather sleeve. Select up to three initials; from your basic Latin graphemes and Penhaligon's symbols—a stag's head, a heart, a bowtie, just to name a few.
The crowning moment to this personalisation service is the selection of a brass charm. There are five designs by Kristjana Williams to choose from: a Victorian hand, a top hat, a teacup, a hot air balloon or a butterfly; these charms represent a different pillar of the brand. There are probably a kajillion combinations (the number could be off by a few digits; I don't know, math isn't my forte) that you can put together and you can't get any personal than that.
Penhaligon's personalisation service is only available at the Orchard ION outlet.
