London-based fragrance house, Penhaligon’s, is releasing a new fragrance called “The World According to Arthur” in the Portraits Collection.
“Portraits is a tribute to the good old English spirit: stiff upper lip, caustic humour, and a knack for provocation and recognizable for its amusing caps in the form of animals now includes more than fourteen fragrances,” says the Penhaligons website.
Penhaligons: The World According to Arthur – a new Resinous, Woody fragrance for men
“Part of the British brand Penhaligon’s Portraits collection, The World According to Arthur Eau de Parfum pays homage to the eponymous King and warrior. Nodding to his journey of wisdom and wit as he attempts to best his brother Lord George, it is made here in the UK and formed of an incense top note, ambrette and clary sage at the heart, followed by Tonka absolute,” Selfridges says.
The World According to Aurthur features a similar bottle to the rest of the portraits collection. The bottle itself is see-through with the classic Penhaligon’s, white-label brandishing the front. The cap follows the animal trend with an aggressively detailed dragon head in gold.
The fragrance’s complete note breakdown is available on the Selfridges website, showing us that the scent begins with Incense SFE, Vanilla Tahitensis Infusion and Grapefruit. In the heart is Ambrette Firabs and Clary Sage Absolute. Finally, Tonka Absolute, Incense MD and Incense Vulcain conclude the fragrance in the base.
The new fragrance is available in a 75ml, Eau de Parfum concentration exclusively on the Selfridges website for $305 USD.
