Founded by William Penhaligon in 1872, part of the Edwardian era of decadence, the English perfume house is renowned for creating original scents for the discerning eccentrics of today. Artemisia is a beautifully silky fragrance, inspired by romantic tales from Greek Mythology and named in honour of Artemis, the Goddess of the hunt whose symbol was the Moon. At the base of Artemisia is a creamy, almost caramel sweet blend of vanilla and amber, which unfolds underneath a lunar veil of jasmine, violets and lily of the valley and delicate top notes of orchard fruits and crisp green foliage..
Our fine fragrances are made in England using the finest rare ingredients; from hand-squeezed bergamot, to jasmine at twice the price of gold.
