Penhaligon's has launched two new fragrances in the brand's Trade Routes Collection, Oud de Nil and Alizarin.
Oud de Nil ~ "Reminiscent of the atmosphere of a bygone era, the new addition to the Trade Routes collection captivate different facets of the fantasised journey in the land of the Pharaohs. Clean white robes billowing like sails on The Nile, the desert wind bringing scents of jasmine and exotic fruits embellishing a dry desert base of precious woods." Additional notes include bergamot, grapefruit, rose, geranium, orange blossom, oud, papyrus, guaiac wood, resins and amber.
Alizarin ~ "An intriguing and intense Oud inspired by the red dye, Alizarin, cultivated in Egypt since antiquity. Intense and mysterious, Alizarin conjures whispers of oud, precious vetiver and rare resins. A homage to the millenary tradition of fragrance in Egypt, it is reminiscent of ancient and traditional perfumes." Additional notes include mandarin, narcisse, tuberose, orris, mimosa, leather and olibanum.
Penhaligon's Oud de Nil and Alizarin were developed by perfumer Christian Provenzano. They are available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
