Penhaligon’s – Trade Routes – Alizarin

Alizarin is a red dye that has been known and used since ancient times in Egypt. Penhaligon’s perfume of the same name is an intense oud fragrance inspired by this traditionally rich and aromatically scented dye.


Alizarin is a mysterious, exotic scent that marries the noble aroma of aged oud wood to a mixed group of florals, namely, narcissus, tuberose, and mimosa, thus harnessing a range of very different floral nuances – the innocent, fluffy custard yellow of mimosas playing against the sultry, sexualized facets of tuberose, all undercut by the earthy, spring-like greenery of daffodils. Underneath this smoky, conflicted floral heart, there beats a drum of darkness – leather, incense and vetiver giving the fragrance depth and resolution. Literally anchoring the florals to the earth.

With Alizarin, perfumer Christian Provenzano has crafted a moving tribute to a thousand-year-old perfume tradition of Egypt.
