As the British Empire expanded to the corners of the map in the 19th century, so, too, did the world of luxurious items available to delight the wealthy and adorn the powerful. As the most elegantly feminine of Penhaligon’s new Trade Routes Collection, Empressa is a testament to the silks, baubles and delicacies then available to only a lucky few- those most exotic of imports that gave rise to the luxury goods we covet to this day.
Empressa’s opening shimmers with bright pink pepper, succulent blood orange, dewberry, and a juicy, mouthwatering peach note. The heart is richly floral, lustrous with the dusky pinks and soft whites of rose and neroli, evoking smooth silks and luminous jewels. A sensuous drydown of patchouli and vanilla is sweetened by a blend of cocoa, amber and caramel-like maltol, with warm cedar and rich sandalwood giving depth and authority. Like the eye-catching treasures of the Victorian elite, the wearable elegance of Empressa will immediately mark you as someone who deserves- and receives- only the finest things in life.
