penhaligon’s sartorial

based on the sights, sounds and smells of savile row, penhaligons have created a scent; the sartorial, the scent of savile row. enjoy quentin jones, the artists, stop-motion video commissioned by penhaligon’s (below).

"i wanted to translate the tailor's workroom. it's such a masculine, traditional world, yet there were these raw elements - the metallic odour of the sewing machines, the smell of the wools as it is steamed and pressed - incredible dusty but sweet smells, so i had to approach it both ways, fusing tradition with modernity. To do this, I used a lot of ingredients I hadn't used before" - bertrand duchaufour
