Potions & Remedies
The Forgotten Formulas
Away from daylight and distractions, William Penhaligon submerges himself in what feels like another world.
A world in which all the ills of the day have a remedy.
This, dear reader, is Mr Penhaligon’s
Herbs, plants and flowers offer all manner of recipes and prescriptions to cure – or procure – altered states. The world would be changed once and for all – there was no going back.
A gateway to Elation has been discovered!
Penhaligon's new Potions & Remedies are distilled with potent powers to cheer, to calm, to excite, to seduce.
Vra Vra Vroom
Vra Vra Vroom
A Spoonful of Vigour
As if inhabited by a dose of blooming spring and spoonful of invigorating enthusiasms, your energy is in abundance.
This is a nation without borders (the possibilities are endless) and a state where all feel free will.
Mr Penhaligon’s Pharmacopoeia Vra Vra Vroom
Head Note Apricot
These vitamin-rich fruits are bursting with health properties. A juicy bite does wonders for eye health (all the better to see Vra Vra Vroom clearly).
Heart Note Osmanthus
A medicinal plant used to treat weakened visions, coughs, and toothache – let your imagination run wild once more with your sensibilities restored!
Base Note Leather
Warm. Rich. An evocative scent with notes of nostalgia and comfort to ignite the brain. Saddle up and vra vra vroom one’s engine.
Proceed with caution…and wear with care. At first a gentle spritz of confusion, an enveloping sea of sensation, an absence of appetite.
Soon however, an abundance of generosity and joy, your heart is open. Suddenly and all at once.
Nothing will ever quite be the same.
Mr Penhaligon’s Pharmacopoeia Liquid Love
Head Note Ginger
A seductive spice used in a plethora of passionate tonics. Perhaps this miraculous root can kick things up a notch when it comes to romance.
Heart Note Rose
Ah, the romantic rose. Its sweet scent is most alluring, and it’s common knowledge they can attract a suitor and mend a broken heart.
Base Note Cashmere
Soft, warm, a tad sensual. A silken scent reminiscent of trysts in tangled sheets (so scandalous!)
Kiss of Bliss
The Optimist's Ointment
And one day, the sun comes out. The birds are singing. The blues have bid farewell, and doubt has decamped! You too sing from the hill tops, and dance, and twirl all night long.
Your blessings are abundant.
Mr Penhaligon’s Pharmacopoeia Kiss Of Bliss
Head Note Rose
The sweet scent of rose sends one's head into a spin - is this pure elation? Beware the thorns: one wouldn't want to crash back to earth, now.
Heart Note Matcha Accord
A marvellous miracle with myriad properties. Pop the kettle on and brew up a batch - or better yet, bottle up and breathe deep.
Base Note Patchouli
Patchouli is known to kindle creativity and kindness. Spicy and sweet in equal measure, expect to find blissful balance where this scent is concerned.
Eau The Audacity
A Little Liquid Courage
A caution to all those who were of the persuasion that pleasures are best delayed, rules, there to be respected, convention, followed. You may find your world tipped upside down!
How would it feel to dare greatly – with a little fear-not formula?
Mr Penhaligon’s Pharmacopoeia Eau The Audacity
Head Note Black Pepper
The kick one needs to invigorate the senses. Black pepper bursts with confidence with a head note that reaches for the sky. Fly away, old chap.
Heart Note Incense
A smoky, sensual substance with warm, ambery notes. Excessive inhalation can lead to arrogance. Measure carefully (or not).
Base Note Vanilla
Vivacious and velvety, vanilla reduces cholesterol and possess anti-inflammatory properties – in fact, the only thing it inflames is one’s confidence.
Balm of Calm
A Cloud of Serenity
As if by some mysterious conflagration of the planets, suddenly the impossible seems unimportant, the terrible seems inconsequential, and the dramatically disastrous, insignificant.
Breathe in and breathe out.
Mr Penhaligon’s Pharmacopoeia Balm of Calm
Head Note Lavender
A natural remedy for aches and pains – for one who has been dancing all night long, perhaps. This soothing scent will help sleep long into the morning.
Heart Note Geranium
Harks back to one’s youth when anxiety and depression didn’t plague the mind. Take a sniff and let all troublesome thoughts slip away.
Base Note Sandalwood
One whiff of this soothing scent banishes all frenzied thoughts – so long, anxiety! Sandalwood also slows signs of ageing, so frown all you like.
You needn’t see it to believe it, simply catch of whiff of it with the new Potions & Remedies Discovery Set.
