Oud De Nil is available now from Penhaligon’s boutiques and is priced at £156
Penhaligon’s is a brand I haven’t really heard of before. But I was lucky enough to try a sample of the new fragrance. They challenge the traditional floral and fruity scents that you see in most everyday perfumes.
The Trade Routes Collection is inspired by the exquisite commodities that were traded through the bustling London docks at the turn of the nineteenth century. This was a magical time for London, with cases of fine fabrics, breathtaking spices and tantalising food and drink piled high on the quayside, with more and more arriving each day from exciting and, for many people, mysterious places across the globe, leading to the British capital being described as the Warehouse of the World. Using sumptuous fragrances inspired by the trade routes of the time, Penhaligon’s has created a collection of seven unique modern classics that reflect countries and regions such as the Caribbean, Morocco, Turkey, India and the Persian Gulf.
It is presented beautifully, in a very vintage styled bottle. It’s a very musky scent with hints of Bergamot and Rose. I would really use this as a special occasion scent, not for everyday. I recently wore it and had so many compliments. It really is like no other scent I own, highly recommend this to anyone who wants to change things up.
