Penhaligon’s, one of the few remaining genuine perfume houses, introduces Sartorial eau de toilette, inspired by the scent of Saville Row.
You may be wondering what exactly would that olfactory experience include? Sartorial is a contemporary interpretation of the classic Fougère scent. The traditional notes of oakmoss, tonka bean and lavender have been exquisitely stitched together with woods, ozonic and metallic effects, leather, violet leaf, honey and spices to create the perfect illusion of a tailor’s workroom.
Bertrand Duchaufour the perfumer behind Sartorial used his visits to Norton & Sons as inspiration for this creation and says “It’s such a masculine, traditional world, yet there were these raw elements – the metallic odour of the sewing machines, the smell of wool as it is steamed and pressed – incredible dusty but sweet smells.”
