*Moonbeams 'Ode to Penhaligon's' Collection
Regular price $50.00
For over a decade I have been enamored with the classic British perfume house Penhaligon's. Touring their London store in 2008 I fell even harder for their wit, charm, and absolutely beautiful perfume blends. Perfumes that boggle the imagination and delight the senses. In 2019 I had a dream to bring these fantastic scents to our own scent library as an ode to the perfection that Mr. William Penhaligon started back in 1870.
150 years since the first inception, I have recreated 14 of my favorite Penhaligon's scents in wax form. A new foray into the world of floral and fougeres, chypre and ouds like never before! Take this journey with me and discover this elegant and sophisticated perfume inspired world!
Enjoy the Penhaligon's Collection - featuring all 14 scents in our signature 2 Moon Rock format gift wrapped and ready to gift, or enjoy for yourself!
Moonbeams Ode to Penhaligon's Collection Scents:
The Banks of Halfeti- (Inspired by Penhaligons’ ‘Halfeti’) – (Oud)- Halfeti, a small village off the banks of the Euphrates river is ancient and beautiful, let its beauty tell a new tale with tangled black roses, robust grapefruit and orange blossoms, shining in the moonlight on a bed of cinnamon leaves and ambered musks.
Blasted Blooms- (Inspired by Penhaligons’ ‘Blasted Bloom’) – (Floral)- Come with us now to the English coastline, high up on the bluffs overlooking the ocean, a perfect scent for those looking to freshen up their homes and bring nature inside! Clean salty aquatic air wafts about while amber-white musks, hawthorns, and delicate roses surround your feet. The powdery clean and mossy scent is perfect to enliven the room!
British Bluebells- (Inspired by Penhaligons’ ‘Bluebell’) – (Floral) – Also known as Princess Diana’s favorite perfume, we wanted to pay tribute to two idols in one. Endless fields of the vibrant blue perennials dazzle the senses with dewy wild bluebells, luscious hyacinths, violets and delicate lily of the valley. It’s elegant and regal, full of wonder and whimsy!

Fussing Over the Duke- (Inspired by Penhaligons’ ‘Much Ado About the Duke’) – (Floral)- He’s a real fancy boy! Bubbly and aldehydic, he’s sensual and seductive, but with a twist about him that tickles heartstrings! Nighttime roses, mingle about with fresh herbs, crisp woods and a snap of gin!

The Revenge of Lady White- (Inspired by Penhaligons’ ‘The Revenge of Lady Blanche’) - (Floral)- You’ll be guilty by association with this new scent! Heady and delicate, floral, spicy and oh so dangerous! Violet like Orris dally around with soft yet potent hyacinths, and at the heart of this vengeful scent… Narcissus flowers!
Sartorial (Type)- (Fougere)- Beeswax, oakmoss, vanilla, suede and spices all appear in this signature Penhaligon’s scent! It’s dapper and delicate all in one.

It’s sharp and befitting for those looking for a new elegant scent!
