Penhaligon's No.33

Thursday, 30 July 2015

Penhaligon's No.33 is a special one, not only does it smell distinctive, powerful and sexy it's also has some interesting and very relevant history to it. I know all of the fragrances in the stunning collection do have stories and history to them but this one is a bit of a big deal. No.33 was created in celebration of Penhaligon's 145th Anniversary in homage to Founder, William Penhaligon who began his barbers at No.33 on St Jame's Street in 1870 where he sold fragrances and grooming preparations for gentlemen. This summer sees the exciting fragrance celebration of No.33 and I feel proud to be wearing this iconic fragrance and already have so much love for it. 

I really like how metro-sexually manly this fragrance is (if that even makes sense!), and its quite funny because notoriously I'm known for being a sucker for floral scents but sometimes I crave the power and masculinity of something with a bit more depth and sensuality this scent is most definitely ticks the boxes!
Both myself and my boyfriend James can't get enough of No.33 and we've both been wearing it since it arrived a week ago - which is slightly strange I know... who wants to smell exactly like their boyfriend or girlfriend but we're both so addicted we can't help it!! 

I think what I love most about No.33 is how deep it is but how morishly refreshing it is at the same time- Mo.33 is such a satisfying balance of deep woodiness from the Tobacco, cedar and vetiver contrasting so well to the aromatic burst of crisp citrus, warming vanilla and intensity of the lovely lavender at the heart of the fragrance.
