WTB: Pen's Blenheim Bouquet EDT spray

Or, what's the best USA source? Is it really necessary to spend ~$100 for this product in the US of A?

A reviewer on a retail site said:

"Giving it a neutral strictly for compostion, it would be a thumbs down on wearability. Kind of a funky lemon meets Halls cough drops kind of scent. Could not think of a proper time to wear this beside being home in bed with bronchitis!"

Then why is it so popular?

Maybe the reviewer was an Osage rub man. 8) I like the Blenheim scent as a shave soap and an aftershave splash. If it is good enough for Winston Churchill, it is good enough for me. :D

I used to read scent descriptions: by their number and volume they would convince me that my olfactory life was incomplete, and EDT X would make it complete (via UPS ground). My olfactory life remains incomplete.

Remember: Nobody knows anything (except that Yatagan is to be sprayed once, if at all).

I like it, and I wear it several times a week. I like the citrusy fragrance, and my wife does, too. Some people like Tabac, but I couldn't abide the scent. I like gin. Some people think it tastes like cough medicine. To each his own.

Jim, Well you're in pretty exclusive company. According to our Mr. Bargepole, who says he's been close enough to notice, The Duke of Edinburgh is a Blenheim fan. Personally I just love the top notes of Blenheim Bouquet ( which is why it was the first Penhaligon's scent I bought...feverishly checking them all out at the Bergdorf Goodman cologne counter back in '97 or so ). But, unfortunately, as the scent developes ( on me ) I get too much pine and it starts to come across as slightly medicinal. But that's just me, it is undeniably a great classic gentlemen's scent.
Regards,
Gordon

Dukes and PM's are great, but Gordon, your imprimatur is good enough for me. Cheers.

PS: a little pine is not frowned upon here in the Tar Heel State.
