Sumptuous and mysterious, lush and spicy, Halfeti builds on the promise of the previous entries in Penhaligon’s Trade Routes series by delivering an exotic and beautiful rose fragrance that sings with the luxuries of the 19th century’s most rare and valuable trading commodities. Named for the gorgeous and exceedingly rare black roses found along the Euphrates river in Turkey, Halfeti takes this rose note- luscious, lightly fruity, fresh and rich- and sets it amongst notes of juicy, sharp grapefruit, fresh green vegetation, and a mouthwatering melange of culinary spices anchored with golden, redolent saffron. As the rose increases in intensity, joined by lightly indolic jasmine and fresh lily, a rich, regal base of leather, oud, patchouli and precious woods lends sophisticated depth, calling to mind a merchant ship returning to port, overflowing with priceless goods. Such is the balance of this exquisite fragrance that spicy and soft, lovely and dark, complex and comfortable all blend in perfect harmony, with that singularly beautiful rose standing tall in the middle. Rose fragrances come and go, but a treasure like Halfeti is a rare find indeed.
