While we love young and innovative new brands here at The Amazing Blog, we know that sometimes heritage means a lot more. We are firm fans of Penhaligon’s, a London perfume house that has been around since 1870, creating beautiful fragrances. Their scents are timeless and very unique. Recently, their new fragrance, Vaara, was launched to the public, and we just had to try it out here at The Amazing Blog.
Vaara is a fragrance designed for and inspired by royalty. His Highness Gaj Singh II of the Royal House of Marwar-Jodhpur had a passion to create something that showed his love for Jodhpur in Rajasthan, and commemorate the birth of his granddaughter Vaara. Bertand Duchaufour, of Penhaligon’s, took a trip to Jodhpur to experience the place for himself, and capture the spirit of India so he could transform it into a fragrance. It is a very captivating scent consisting of a blend of Rosewater, Freesia and Peony. Overall, it is very floral, with hints of coriander seeds and sandalwood. It is a complicated scent, very sweet, but with a hint of spice. I found it quite sultry, and thought it would be the perfect fragrance for an evening out.
Penhaligon’s has some of the most iconic perfumes available in London, if not the world. Vaara is a classic scent inspired by royalty that is sure to delight the noses of many. This will make a perfect addition to any collection of perfumes, and if you are looking for an exotic new scent, this will take you on an Indian getaway. To learn more about Vaara, visit the Penhaligon’s website, where you can purchase it at £120 for 100ml.
