Penhaligon’s The World According to Arthur

Part of the British perfumehouse Penhaligon’s Portraits collection, The World According to Arthur Eau de Parfum pays homage to the eponymous King and warrior. Nodding to his journey of wisdom and wit as he attempts to best his brother Lord George, it is made in the UK and formed of an incense top note, ambrette and clary sage at the heart, followed by tonka absolute.

A fragrance family quite unlike any other, where nothing is quite as it seems. Portraits is a tribute to the good old English spirit: stiff upper lip, caustic humour, and a knack for provocation. What lies behind good manners? Perhaps it’s time to find out.  

What are the secrets of the British Aristocracy? Are they as educated, courteous and polite as they are made out to be? ‘Portraits’ is a tribute to the English spirit; between ‘establishment, humor and provocation’. The family of ‘Portraits’ continues with Lord George’s younger brother: Arthur.

Arthur sheaths his silver spoon and words like a sword. Now, fresh from the East, he’s mastered sage wisdom. So, that devil Lord George best keep his brother sweet. When incensed, he breathes fire.

At the heart of the royal family, meet Lord George’s rival brother: Arthur. A dreamy explorer in search of adventure, he sets out to explore the hills, lakes and temples of the far reaches of the Great Wall of China. His fragrance accompanies him on each of his journeys, revealing his wisdom with notes of sage, balanced by a mysterious facet thanks to incense and amber. Be careful not to get burned by his side: Arthur masters both the fire and the balance of his fragrance. Between power and freshness, the fragrance promises an olfactory journey that transcends the ages.

A spot of familial competition: Hot tempers and sibling rivalry. Arthur and his younger brother, Lord George, meet again. Will Lord George remain the head of the family, or will the tables turn? We all know what happened the last time George and The Dragon locked horns… 

A kindred spirits counsel: Changing Constance is all too accustomed to feeling like a misfit, a maverick. Which is why The World According To Arthur hit it off the moment they met at the union of their siblings. Since which time they have remained, well, the closest of confidants.
