Inspired by Turkey Penhaligon adds Halfeti fragrance to their Trade Routes Collection

Soon after unveiling a special fragrance for their 145th anniversary, Penhaligon’s is back with a new offering: this time a new addition to their Trade Routes Collection. This will be the fifth fragrance in the collection which is inspired by “the luxurious and decadent commodities which were traded through London’s historic docks at the turn of the 19th century.” Titled Halfeti, the new fragrance takes its cues from items traded between Turkey and the Levant Company which include exotic florals, spices, soft leathers and precious fabrics.

Halfeti is an opulent and multifaceted fragrance with top notes of grapefruit, bergamot, green notes and armoise. Lavender, cardamom, cumin, nutmeg, saffron, violet, cinnamon, rose, jasmine, cypress and muguet comprise the middle or heart notes while leather, oud, amber, resins, cedarwood, patchouli heart, tonka, vanilla, sandalwood, musk form the memorable base notes.
Created by Christian de Provenzano, Halfeti is named after the black roses that grow on the banks of the Euphrates River in the small Turkish village of Halfeti. The roses are as rare and mysterious as this covetable fragrance. As of now UK based perfume lovers can purchase Halfeti on the Penhaligon’s website for £150 ($232) -per 100 ml. Hopefully it will be made available for USA customers soon! Until then, we’ll be waiting eagerly.
