British perfume house – Penhaligon’s previously-launched Trade Routes collection has received a new addition! The ensemble of fragrances that beautifully pays an ode to the many ingredients that arrived in London at the end of the 19th century is now blessed with its latest – a scent called the ‘Halfeti Leather’.
Inspired by a remote Turkish town and its natural riches, the novel fragrance boasts of oriental tones with woody and spicy notes. A stark variation over its 2015 variant, the Halfeti Leather features fresh notes of bergamot and artemisia, mixed with hints of jasmine and spicy rose, and soothing base notes of vanilla, sandalwood, leather, oud, amber, and patchouli. It is created by perfumer Christian Provenzano and comes in a deep black bottle, adorned with delicate red and gold label and a matching red bow.
In describing the ‘Halfeti Leather’, the label narrates, “A potion with scents so deliciously intoxicating that you will immediately fall in love with it. The fragrance is warm, strong, and reassuring at the same time, ignoring all respectability. We embarked on a long journey to the Turkish city of Halfeti. In this place, the red roses seem black as their magic is intense.”
Penhaligon’s new perfume is available for purchase on the brand’s official website for $258 (100 ml).
