Proud bull meets landed gentry
I have to admit, Penhaligon´s has captivated me with this family history. Mr. Sam, a proud, self-confident new rich man, enters the noble house, begins a love affair with the young Duchess Rose and fits like a bull into a porcelain shop or even into the ducal gallery of ancestors.
For me the character is well implemented. Mr. Blaze is there right away, not quietly stepping, not reserved, yet charming and not still....Winter spices are sharpened by pepper and enter into an interesting composition with a relaxed wood note. I also like the tobacco breath, no burnt ashtray, no cold smoke, rather noble flavoured tobacco mixture from the Bruyere-pipe. Not obtrusive, but the smell still hangs in the salon or in the suit of Mr. Sam.
Since I smoke a pipe myself, I can trace the smell of tobacco a little. My environment certainly perceives it even more consciously when I myself smoke a gourmand tobacco mixture

Saffron and cumin push themselves to the fore and overlap woody-oudy background. Cinnamon-vanilla sweetness can only partly restrain them.

Sorry für die schlechte Qualität, wollte ein Foto noch schnell schießen bevor der Flakon fast leer ist.
