Cool things to do in Mayfair: Fragrance Profiling and Scent Layering 0  

Posted in Mayfair Village, Shopping

Penhaligon'sPenhaligon’s at Burlington Arcade have been at the forefront of British perfume since 1872. Just round the corner from the hotel, Penhaligon’s boutique have launched a VIP experience that we absolutely love. Fragrance Profiling is a completely unique experience that includes an expert consultant matching your personality to a fragrance. Available for goups of 6, when you book with our May Fair concierge you can take advantage of a 10% discount.

Penhaligon’s explain the experience…

Fragrance is liquid emotion; our sense of smell unlocks memories and opens doors. A chance encounter with fragrance can stop us in our tracks, lost somewhere for a moment, searching for memories. Recollections triggered by a dusting of iris, a whisper of jasmine, a burst of warm citrus, smoky incense, faded leather, or a creamy lick of vanilla. Scented memories have the power to move us to tears and rock us with emotion. Everyone has favourite scents, a sacred juice they treasure.

At Penhaligon’s they understand the emotive power of scent and help customers to find something special to create new scented memories to take with them the rest of their lives. Penhaligon’s Profiling and Layering experience is luxurious, relaxing and enjoyable. A consultation offers an authentic way of discovering a special fragrance and a true way of wearing it. Profiling explores fragrance memories, Layering demonstrates how fragrance should be worn.

Fragrance Profiling explores olfactory memory and builds a profile; your likes and dislikes, personality, background, what kind of fragrance you are looking for and what you would like your fragrance to say about you. You are then introduced to a selected group of pre-scented fragrance spills; carefully chosen language is used to evoke the essence and mood of the fragrances without giving too much away, just enough to intrigue. As the choice is narrowed down, the consultant goes deeper, exploring the notes, construction and history of your choices.

Scent Layering is a wonderfully simple technique, offering great benefits to the wearer, locking the fragrance down onto the skin and making it softer, longer lasting and utterly compulsive. At Penhaligon’s they suggest scent should be applied in the following sequence:


– Indulging and relaxing in fragrant bath oil.

– Spritzing fragrance generously onto the skin

– Lavishly applying hand and body
