Penhaligon’s Regent St. store makeover
The makeover, conceived by South African-born designer Christopher Jenner, is a modern take on Edwardian architecture in a Beaux Arts style interpretation according to the press release. I see it more of a Moroccan sultan’s dream with baroque aspirations. The attention to detail is impeccable: Brighton Pavillion chandeliers in the shape of the brand’s iconic bottle and in the Penhaligon purple, ribbons in the wood panels.
At Wednesday night’s launch delicious chocolates from Aneesh Popat were served.
Two of their best selling perfumes, Endymion and Artemisia, had taken center stage as a sort of prelude to Valentine’s Day. However, I was obsessed with taking pictures of Love Potion No.9. I just love that color. I also love the super cheesy film with Sandra Bullock. Think what you want.
