PENHALIGON'S  The Tragedy of Lord George

The opening is boozy with a brandy impression that is quite brief and sharp, VS at best and pretty basic. 

The drydown develops a babershop shaving soap impression that is quite traditional and neutral on me. 

The base adds an ambroxan note that emanates a bearable ambery flavour, whilst the base adds a vanilla note that is pleasant, not overly sweet and never cloying. 

I get moderate sillage, good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.  

Suitable for autumn days, this creation is not without an original touch.  It’s main drawback is the overly synthetic character of the ingredients that tends to dominate.  2.75/5.
