Penhaligon's Endymion

Item Description

From Penhaligon's:

"Head Notes
Bergamot, Mandarin, Lavender and Sage

Heart Notes
Geranium and Coffee Absolute

Base Notes
Vetiver, Nutmeg, Black pepper, Cardamom, Musk, Leather, Sandalwood, Incense, Frankincense and Myrrh"

This one starts off similar to LP#9 without the overly sweet and strong clove notes but evolves much better. Its a gentle nice scent with an all around quality. There's not too much of a difference I could detect moving through the layers of top to basenotes but I will say its a nice mix of vetiver, musk, sandalwood and myrrh. Not something I would buy because of the high cost, I wish they would make a smaller more affordable sized bottle around the $40 range. This is definitely one to try as it may be what your looking for.

Penhaligon’s Endymion

Top Notes: Mandarin, Bergamot, Cardamom, Nutmeg, Black Pepper
Middle Notes: Vetiver, Lavender, Sage, Amber
Base Notes: Leather, Musk, Myrrh

The citrus, gourmand pepper on the top is reminiscent of L’Occitan by L’Occitane. The lavender continues the L’Occitan experience until the amber comes in to smooth and sweeten the scent beautifully. The leather and incense dry down is subtle and nice. Basically if you want something more rustic and cheaper for a pepper/lavender then go with L’Occitan otherwise go with Endymion.

Very aromatic and smooth. This is one to keep stocked. It is sweet yet manly and perfect for a warm night out. You can really smell the different scents as they develop. On my skin I could smell the sage and mandarin then the coffee and finally the black pepper, nutmeg and frankincense and myrhh.

Packaging is normal pen style - classy and simple.
Price always a bit higher than I like but so worth it in the end when people ask me what I am wearing after surrounding me. Too bad most have never heard of Pen.

I like oriental fragrances and this one is a beauty. The packaging and presentation are outstanding. I'm not knowledgable enough to comment on all the different notes but I will say that this fragrance feels 'warm and comforting' unlike BB which to me, smelled cold and aloof.
I have just invested in a bottle as well as the shave cream and ASB and I think it is money well spent.
