PENHALIGONS | CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE



Fragrance has to be my all time favourite beauty product (if you can count it as one?) and I don't think there's anything nicer than opening a new bottle of perfume on Christmas morning. 

Whether its an old scent that sparks my nostalgia or something different that I'll associate new memories with, this is definitely one I look forward to over the festive season!

I first came across Penhaligons when I found their ladies fragrance selection in my goodie bag from the British Fashion Awards

A year on, I still can't get enough of these five unique perfumes! 

Penhaligon's started in the Victorian era during a time of flamboyant experimentation and, 135 years later, finds itself with 34 iconic scents and no fewer than two Royal Warrants. 

Below I've gone through the heart, head and base notes that make five of these scents truly distinctive. 

Know someone who would love to find this under the tree? Enter my giveaway at the very bottom for your chance to win this set, worth £35!
