Review: Penhaligon’s Blenheim Bouquet

Blenheim Palace EnglandCreated in 1902 and taking its name from Blenheim Palace, the seat of one of England’s most respected bloodlines, Blenheim Bouquet is a bracing mix of citrus oils, spices and woods. Inhaling Blenheim Bouquet today it is hard to imagine it was created over one hundred years ago. It is a fragrance that has continually adapted to every twist and turn of its existence. Blenheim Bouquet is discreet, sensual and immaculately turned out with a flash of heritage flourish.

Blenheim BouquetThis fragrance opens with a big citrusy/lavender hit that’s somewhat astringent. Almost immediately you can smell the black pepper which tempers it quite a bit. You can also smell the pine as it develops into a woodsy/fresh/peppery smell.  As it settles and fades, a lovely musky, peppery scent is left on the skin. Although marketed as a masculine fragrance, Blenheim Bouquet can also be lovely on women!

Fact: Sir Winston Churchill is reputed to have worn Blenheim Bouquet often (and, we hear Prince William as well).
