The Blazing Mr Sam – an American abroad; in London to be precise, who spends freely, lives fast and talks loudly. Reassuring, warm, sexy and deep. And that’s just the top notes! Instinctive, indiscrete, …& ready to receive instruction. Well, he appeared to be taking lessons from Duchess Rose the last time he was seen…

Penhaligon’s is the story of a Cornish Barber who traveled to London and opened up shop next to Jermyn Street’s finest tailors. Who received the royal warrant and trimmed the Shah of Persia’s beard. At a time when one’s toilette was of primordial concern and to be a gentlemen was an affair of great application. Victoria was Queen, antiseptic was making its first appearance – and ankles were considered titillating stuff. It was 1870.
Penhaligon’s today consults William Penhaligon’s original recipe books, and still produces in the UK, in the original bottle design.
