This Under-the-Radar Perfume Brand Creates the Most Expensive-Smelling Scents

When it comes to the most popular perfumes, that are some brands that instantly come to mind, from Byredo to Le Labo and even Jo Malone. However, there is one particular British fragrance house that I have been obsessed with lately, and it seems I'm not alone. If you're wondering which brand I'm talking about, it's none other than Penhaligon's. 

I was first introduced to the fragrances by a fellow beauty editor, and since adding some of the scents to my collection, I have spoken to more and more editors who all rave about the perfumes. Apparently, even the likes of Kate Moss and Sienna Miller are fans. The brand was founded back in the late 1800s, and actually started as a barbershop before William Penhaligon created his first fragrance in 1872. Since then, it has gone from strength to strength, creating some of the most unique and exquisite scents on the market, while still maintaining that classic British look and feel.

It's no secret that the bottles are a work of art, and although the perfumes are a bit more of an investment, I find that the scents have great lasting power, so you won't be using them up in a hurry. If you're keen to introduce a new fragrance into your collection for the season ahead, I've rounded up some of the very best scents for you to try, including some of the brand's bestsellers. So, keep on scrolling and take your pick. Trust me, after spritzing one of these, everyone will be asking you where your perfume is from...
