Much Ado About The Duke

Product Type: Eau De Parfum
Brand: Penhaligon's
Country of Origin: England
Fragrance Family: Leather
Style: Masculine


Conforming to the expectations of his class, Duke Nelson married the most coveted girl in London: the Duchess Rose. The Duke is eccentric and unusual, full of whimsical airs that set society tongues wagging: rumors abound that his marriage has yet to be consummated! His scent is one of ambivalence, a floral masculine that attracts and evades: fancy that.

Mercutio, another interspacial society man, comes to mind upon first smelling this fragrance: prone to fits of passion, flights of fancy and bursts of inspired prescience, Much Ado About The Duke is a shimmering, silvery enigma, that entrances even as it evades definition. Perhaps Duke Nelson is a descendant of Romeo’s in-between cousin, but whatever his lineage, he sure smells great. Peppery rose is initially a sheer wall of spice, but it slowly unfolds its petals to reveal a more vulnerable interior that is subtly dulcet and faintly fresh, as if just kissed by a fine dew drop. Gin is a clarifying force that both contains and magnifies rose’s romantic propensities: as this crisp, herbal spirit cuts through any possibility of overwhelming floral intensity, gin simultaneously complements the fruity-spicy overtures of rose with it’s own ornate aromatic structure. A leathery, woodsy note grounds this fragrance, a composite that hints at an identity natural and man-made: leather adds a dose of indulgent richness while woods build a pure structure upon which all the mysterious flourishes of this scent can hang in simple splendour. Warm yet cool, spicy but sweet, Much Ado About The Duke is a crisply sumptuous wonder, that encourages us to embrace our contradictions and stay curious.
