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. Created in 1996, Quercus declares itself with a light burst of citrus and basil, supported by a heart accord of jasmine, cardamom and muguet that is sweet, spiced and supremely delicate. The greenness of the basil persists into the surprisingly resilient musk and sandalwood base notes. These are warmed through with moss and patchouli to create elegant, strong and uplifting cologne. Named after the Latin for the British Oak, Quercus is a modern and invigorating cologne enjoyed by both men and women. .
