Fit for a maharaja
Ever since William Penhaligon was inspired by the steamy aromas of a Turkish hammam in the late 1860s, the London-born Penhaligon’s perfumery has been creating quirky and exotic fragrances renowned the world over. Sarah Rotheram is the brand’s latest chief nose and she was in Dubai recently for the launch of its newest scent, Vaara, created for India’s Maharaja Gaj Singh II to mark the birth of his granddaughter. A spicy blend of coriander, saffron and Indian magnolia, this scent is literally fit for a king. From Dh510.
