This is the story of a Cornish Barber who travelled 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 his recipe books, and still produces in the UK, in the original bottle design.
We were delighted to host a special pop-up with the luxurious British perfumer; Penhaligon’s, this week. Store manager Fiona was on hand to advise our occupiers on the various fragrance profiles offered as well as to give out complimentary silk handkerchiefs, scented with iconic Penhaligon’s perfumes.
Broad Gate occupiers can enjoy a 10% discount at the Penhaligon’s store in the Victoria Quarter for a limited time this festive season.
