Daily Crush: Penhaligon's Vaara

Daily Crush: Penhaligon's Vaara


A new fragrance inspired by India and the world of maharajas

Penhaligon's have been the official perfume suppliers to the Queen of England since the Victorian era. Naturally, they excel at creating subtle yet powerful scents fit for a king. Nose Bertrand Duchaufour was inspired by a recent trip to Jodhpur to compose Vaara, a fresh aromatic scent for men and women. The dominance of soft florals -- rose, freesia, magnolia, peony, iris -- on a base of white musk and sandalwood makes it particularly compelling on a man, its clean and complex scent evoking the purity and opulence of Indian palaces.

Vaara by Penhaligon's, $125, 1.7oz, at Saks Fifth Avenue.
