I’ve never explored this perfume house before, but had read that Penhaligon’s was super high quality with a great history. I actually added this perfume as an afterthought, and boy was I wrong! There is no way to ignore this beautifully layered perfume. Sophisticated, sensual, and curious. The layers of black tea, ginger, warm vanilla, cinnamon and creamy beeswax are gorgeous. The Ruthless Countess Dorothea may like her baked goods (according to the perfume’s description), but she is full of wit and deep desires. This is a powerhouse scent that exudes confidence and sexiness. I had 3-4 hours of nuanced scent, that mellowed down nicely for another couple of hours. Highly recommend…. I bought a bottle!
