Terrible Teddy is an eccentric gentleman who has a penchant for smoky premises, leather sofas and fine whiskey. His fragrance is a dry, spicy smoky story with clear notes of leather and wood.

A smooth operator, his sights are trained on Helen, until he meets the Duke.

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.
