Truly quintessentially English, the Penhaligon’s story dates right back to 1872, where in the midst of the age of excess and flamboyance, its founder William Penhaligon became inspired to create scents after inhaling the steam aromas of his neighbouring Turkish Baths. Scents became oils, oils became creams, and thus the collection grew and still remains a popular grooming brand for barbers, consumers and celebrities alike.
Here at Mankind, there’s a particular feature of the range that really stands out to us – the new Penhaligon’s grooming collection packaging is something else. It may seem a little crazy to get excited over the aesthetics of a product, but we reckon this range deserves the excitement, as it would look absolutely superb on our bathroom shelf.
Let’s take a look at some of the shining stars of the Penhaligon’s range and the reasons behind why we love them so much.
You might hate to admit it, but you can’t deny that you’ll love the design of this beard and shave oil from Penhaligon’s as much as your Mrs would. Working to soften your beard hairs and prepare your skin for a close, comfortable shave with less irritation, this beard and shave oil has a nourishing blend of sunflower, grape seed and wheat germ which work together to hydrate your skin. It’ll leave your beard silky smooth too – and she’ll love it.
If beard and shave oil isn’t for you, the Penhaligon’s Bayolea Conditioning Shave Cream is probably a better bet. Forming a protective barrier over your skin, this shaving cream will help your razor to glide closely and smoothly over your skin, whilst its moisturising properties will help keep it smooth.
Boasting a classic assortment of scents that are perfect for the modern gentleman, the Penhaligon’s Mini Him Collection includes 5ml of Blenheim Bouquet, Juniper Sling, Bayolea, Satorial and Opus 1870. This would make a great, unique christmas gift for him, especially if he’s really into his scents. Plus, the packaging is incredible once again.
