The founder of the brand, William Henry Penhaligon's, arrived in London in the 1860s to make a fortune and thus began his illustrious career. Creative and ambitious, William was inspired by the scents of the Turkish baths of the neighboring Jermyn street and created his first perfume, Hammam Bouquet, in 1874.
The brand perpetuates today the heritage of this innovating perfumer while remaining in agreement with the traditions of British perfumery. The perfumes are still made in the heart of England, with high- quality exotic ingredients. The bottles bear the coat of arms of the British royal family, whose the brand is an official supplier.
