Lothair pays tribute to two of the greatest British pleasures in life: tea and gin. We would never have thought two such distinct tipples could be executed so brilliantly in a scent, but celebrated ‘nose’ Bertrand Duchaufour does so with aplomb in this wonderfully subversive creation. Penhaligon’s are known for drawing on their impressive historic background (the company was founded back in 1872) and Lothair is no exception. It’s inspired by the famous Tea Clipper Ships that first brought the then ‘exotic’ tea leaves from Darjeeling and Assam back to Britain which were swiftly adopted as a cultural mainstay. Opening with a salty-sweet tang, it develops into a smoky black tea heart with a dash of fig milk. A complex yet delectable fragrance, we defy you not to adore it.
Lothair is part of Penhaligon’s Trade Routes Collection, inspired by the exotic wares from the Far East that were famously traded at the East London docks in the early 19th Century. This fragrance opens with a delightful ‘gin and tonic’ accord - with fresh notes of juniper and grapefruit – before warming up with a smoky heart of black tea leaves, sweetened by milky fig. It then softens down with elegant undertones of magnolia, lavender and cedarwood, evoking the Tea Clipper Ships that were responsible for bringing the humble cuppa to British shores. If you’re after a perfume that’s beautiful but a little unusual, this beguiling concoction makes a perfect signature scent or gift for a discerning scent lover - male or female.
