Lord George is the archetypal patriarch of the family. He is refined, a very wealthy man; he embodies aristocracy. This gentleman is classic, traditional and well respected but he harbours secrets. His weakness is beautiful women, particularly Clandestine Clara. The scent of shaving soap – clean crisp and aromatic, a glass of brandy sitting on the dresser. Warm and slightly sweet, a scent with earthy depth yet a light elegance.
Middle: Shaving Soap
Base: Tonka Bean
HOW IT WEARS
The Tragedy of Lord George has great longevity – whilst a slightly fresher scent, the silage is great and it leaves a delicious trail when on the skin. We generally get around 8 hours on the skin, as it settles into a soft and smooth fragrance and gets gentler with time.
Well can we just start with the incredible bottle! Yep, we’re obsessed with this one! Then the scent is fresh, yet warm at the same time. We love the hint of booze – the Brandy and Shaving Soap is such a wonderful combination.
ABOUT THE BRAND
A classic English perfume house, William Penhaligon owned a barber shop which became a perfumery in 1870, launching his first fragrance in 1872. This fragrance was created regularly for its many fans until the store was destroyed in The Blitz of 1941. Despite the store being destroyed, the fragrance house endured and was honoured with a Royal Warrant by the Duke of Wellington in 1956 for manufacturing toiletries. Many of the classic scents in Penhaligon’s collection remain to this day, while many modern scents have been added. Penhaligon’s remain true to William Penhaligon’s vision of fine, traditional perfumes and techniques.
