Fragrance Brands Stirring Up the Status Quo – Part 2: Penhaligon’s and Miu Miu


I’ve been diving into the delights of some of the newest fragrances that are shaking up the perfume world. What a delight it has been! Few things provide the soul with such sensory, evocative delight than fragrance.

And the new kids on the block, who are often (but not ALWAYS) new fragrances from historically established perfume houses, are providing us all with exquisite new scents and titillating mental imagery and description.


The founder of this illustrious brand, William Penhaligon, arrived in London (from Cornwall) in the 1860’s to seek his fortune. And so he began what would become a celebrated career. Wildly creative and ambitious, William was inspired by the scents of neighbouring Turkish Baths on London’s famous Jermyn Street. Today’s Penhaligon’s brand STILL consults his recipe books, and STILL produces fragrance in the utterly gorgeous, original bottle design!

Penhaligon’s Artemisia Eau De Parfum Spray is as sweet as lush nectarines and refreshing like tea. The vibe is dazzling and romantic. It’s fresh and luminescent – a hymn to the skin that leaves an impression that is as silky-soft as freshly bathed skin.

  • Top notes: Nectarine, Green Foliage
  • Heart notes: Green Apple, Lily of The Valley, Jasmine Tea, Violet, Vanilla
  • Base notes: Oakmoss, Sandalwood, Musk, Amber, Vanilla

For the exquisite, delicate drama of world-class ballet, try Penhaligon’s Iris Prima Eau De Parfum Spray. For a masterpiece of olfactory choreography with Iris Absolute in the role of Prima Ballerina. Effortlessly elegant and faintly melancholy, Iris Prima offers a fascinating glimpse into the secluded yet magical world of the ballet.

  • Top notes: Bergamot, Green Amber, Pink Pepper
  • Heart notes: Iris Absolute, Jasmine Sambac, Hedione, Paradisone
  • Base notes: Leather, Vanilla, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Benzoin

Miu Miu

Miu Miu was established in 1993 by Miuccia Prada – it is the family nickname! The fragrance house is inspired by the concept of escaping rules, being free-spirited, mischievous and spontaneous. I’m SO there with you Miu Miu!

The new Miu Miu L’eau Rosée Eau De Toilette Spray captures the spirit of the Miu Miu girl. This soft floral perfumery is wrapped with lily and cassis buds, which are tightly interlaced in the elegant notes of musk.

  • Top notes: Blackcurrant
  • Heart notes: Lily
  • Base notes: Musk

In L’Eau Bleue, perfumer Daniela Andrier evokes a specific moment that we all share—that yearly experience when, seemingly out of nowhere, you realize that spring has arrived.

  • Top notes: Lily of the Valley
  • Middle notes: White Flower, Dew Drop, Green Notes, Wild Rose, Jasmine
