Your first whiff of Penhaligon’s Lothair is a like a refreshing smack in the chops. A smoky Bergamot base note is difficult to ignore but quickly gives way to Grapefruit, Cardamom and slight nuances of berry.
Lothair was inspired by the famous Tea Clipper Ships that navigated the globe to bring exotic wares to British shores. It opens with a salty tang of fruit and a brilliant green sensation from fig leaf. It’s smoky heart of black tea is softened by fig milk and magnolia, sailing into an ambergris, cedar and wenge woods base, reminiscent of the varnished decks of these elegant ships.
Exotic connotations are just what this unisex fragrance evokes. One can picture the sun beating down on their back, waves lapping onto rocks and balmy afternoon air. Lothair gets the heart beating in suspense for Summer. Worn individually or with your lady, it’s our top pick for sun-loving adventurers.
Penhaligon’s Lothair is available from Libertine Parfumerie.
