Penhaligons Portraits Line – every character its own solitaire
Appropriately indiscrete: The portraits present exquisite personalities and their very own fulminant fragrances. Every scent has a story to tell. Possible that you might only learn your true secretive nature after trying out the Portraits line…
Terrible Teddy – The Story
He always wears his cashmere, did you know that? Sir Teddy is sophisticated and a smooth conqueror, whose sight is set on Heartless Helen. They have met each other at a safari. Her, being the expert of indifference. Fascinating. Finally a challenge, worth the play. Could she perhaps become the partner to his side? This is the question Sir Teddy asks himself…before meeting the duke.
The scent is strong and dangerous. A seduction to intimacy. Round, warm and calming but mixed with a passionate bite. A wild balance of staying and leaving. The mysterious aura of incense is highlighted by pink pepper. The deep nuances of leather such as aspects of flattering cedar and ambroxide maintain the liveliness of vetiver and patchouli and the brilliant power of musk.
The flacon is equipped with the form of the tactical rhino. Every seal is made and polished by hand.

Penhaligon’s has cast the world of British royalty in revolutionary flacons. Every portrait character has attributed with a spirit animal, of which its golden head serves as the flacons seal. Every locking-head is meticulously manufactured and hand-polished. Penhaligon’s has distinguished itself once more with its portraits flacons – visually and haptically a class of its own.
Completed in detail is the packaging of the portraits, which is derived of the feather of the multiply rewarded Icelandic artist Kristjana S. Williams. The graduate of the well-known Central Saint Martins College in London has therefore equipped Victorian paintings with contemporary illustrations and colors. Thus, the portrait-characters on magical ground fuse with their exotic creatures.
