LP No:9 for Men by Penhaligon’s

Leave a comment

I love the LP No:9 (Love Potion Number 9) name.  I like the fragrance.  Clean, fresh and spicy is how I would characterize LP No:9.  This is the first Penhaligon’s scent that I have tested, and I’m assuming that my thoughts about LP No:9 is how I’ll feel about this line.  LP No:9 is complex in its composition, but somehow that complexity doesn’t translate to having a great deal of depth.  It’s nice and somewhat old school, but in the end just not that exciting to me.  Bottom line:  fresh floral and spice, sophisticated and easy to wear.

From the Penhaligon’s website:

HEAD NOTES
Mandarin, Bergamot and Rosewood

HEART NOTES
Jasmine, Orris, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Clove, Cinnamon, Pepper and Nutmeg

BASE NOTES
Vanilla, Patchouli, Musk and Amber

Created in 1999, LP No. 9 for Men casts a spell of powdered darkness with its complex heart of ylang-ylang and spices. The fresh top notes of mandarin, bergamot and rosewood soon give way to the unusual floral and spiced heart. The seductive base notes are led by sweet vanilla and earthy patchouli with whisps of musk and amber creating sensual layers of warmth and mystery.
