Penhaligon's Sartorial creates the perfect illusion of a tailor's workroom. The Q Brothers review this one-of-a-kind unisex fragrance.
Sartorial is a contemporary interpretation of a classic Fougere; the traditional notes of oak moss, tonka bean and lavender have been exquisitely stitched together with woods, ozonic and metallic effects, leather, violet leaf, honey and spices to create the perfect illusion of a tailor's workroom. The modern thread running through Sartorial is beeswax; echoing the blocks of wax each thread is run across before stitching. This sweet smudged note ties together the more traditional elements; the oiled flash of shears cutting cloth, the rub of fabric beneath fingers, tobacco tinted cabinetry, puffs of chalk in the air and old paper patterns vanilla with age.
Fragrance is liquid emotion. It unlocks memories and opens doors; it can stop us in our tracks, lost somewhere for a moment in time. Recollections triggered by a dusting of iris, a whisper of clove, a burst of juicy nectarine, a trail of smoky incense, a creamy lick of vanilla. For more than 135 years, Penhaligon's has understood the emotive power of scent. Their fragrant adventure began in the Edwardian era of decadence and carries into the future as they continually create original scents for the discerning eccentrics of today - true modern dandies and bold women who are proud to go their own way. Today, their scents are still made in England using the finest rare ingredients - from hand squeezed bergamot, to jasmine at twice the price of gold.
