I first learnt about Penhaligon’s from Carrie’s post on The Cambelles and she was writing about Juniper Sling. I was intrigued by the brand and the way she described the scent so I went to sniff out the scent and really liked it. However, as a fragrance hogger whom doesn’t really use my scents everyday, I cannot validate spending so much on a perfume which I might not use at all.
Fast forward to two years later, I sort of cultivated a habit of using my scents daily which means my fragrances are finally put to good use. I realized that the sweet fruity scents that I used to love a lot doesn’t really appeal to me so much now.
I would say it’s by chance, that I decided to walk into Penhaligon’s a few days ago. And by luck, Juniper Sling is actually on a 50% sale and comes with its matching shower gel in a gorgeous vintage tin.
I didn’t exactly jumped into the purchase but instead took a tour in the shop and gave other scents a sniff. There was a couple floral scents which I like but doesn’t smells like something that will suit me as a person. Maybe it is just me but I feel that the fragrance that one wears represents the character of the person. And at the end of the day, I find that the Gin&Tonic inspired scent really sits well with me. I like how refreshing and unique the scent. Its a little spicy with just a tinge of sweetness.
I’ve been wearing it for 4 days straight now and I really love how the fragrance smells like on me. It is just nice and not too overwhelming.
Perharps the only bad thing about this is the longevity as it is after all, an EDT. I am quite ok with it and I find spraying the scent on the hair and clothes kind of help prolong the longevity.
I think I might have found my signature scent for now.
