Penhaligon's is a British perfumer, founded in 1870 by William Penhaligon. They are characterized by their longstanding relationship with royalty, as proud holders of two Royal Warrants from His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh and His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, as well as their creativity and rich heritage of 145 years.
William's first fragrance, Hammam Bouquet, was inspired by the steamy, rich scents of the Hammam baths on Jermyn Street. Penhaligon's continue William's legacy of creating fragrances inspired by the unexpected to this day, from Savile Row workrooms to London dry gin, the ballet to London's historic docklands.
Created in 2005, Opus 1870 is a complex and elegant woody chypre. Opening with a luxurious accord of sweet citrus and fiery black pepper, the heart is lit by the delicacy of English clove rose and evocative incense. The base notes are glorious, smoky waves of aromatic cedarwood and sandalwood. Opus 1870 is wonderfully warm and comforting, a fragrance to wrap yourself in on cold winter nights.
