LONDON — Penhaligon’s went back in time to garner inspiration for its latest unisex scent, which is dubbed Elixir.
Like the quintessentially British brand’s first fragrance, Hammam Bouquet, which was created in 1872 for the Turkish baths on London’s Jermyn Street, Elixir is meant to be opulent, mysterious and includes Turkish rose notes. Elixir’s woody-floral, spicy-balmy composition also includes notes of eucalyptus steam, cardamom, red Turkish rose absolute, Egyptian jasmine absolute, cinnamon leaves, incense, red sandalwood and guaicum wood.
The eau de toilette — which will retail at 50 pounds, or $89.91 at current exchange, for 50 ml., and 70 pounds, or $125.88, for 100 ml. — and a scented candle will bow worldwide in October. An ancillary line, which includes a body scrub, massage oil, shaving cream, soap and bath-and-shower gel, will be introduced about a month later.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
