Silver Penny was the original CHRISTOPHER HANLON® perfume created in 1994 and carefully refined after two decades of backyard aromatic experiments. This classic Australian combination of floral notes is perfectly balanced with tropical Queensland citrus top notes but lavishly enriched with Western Australian Sandalwood Absolute. Bitter Orange Bergamot is juxtaposed and spliced with chards of Saffron, Neroli and tangy Manuka, before Christopher Hanlon’s® signature fermenting. The perfume has been carefully blended with the natural green notes of Violet and Patchouli. Finally the dry down lingers: a sophisticated fragrant concoction with a hint of Queensland Ginger.
His-Story: developed for personal use by Christopher Hanlon®, then sold to men particularly in the CBD, Surry Hills, Kings Cross, Darlinghurst and Paddington (Sydney) in the '90s. The worldwide consumer-frenzy this perfume has caused is now quite literally, legendary. Today this aromatic scent is one of our most popular amongst fashionable jet-set girls. MADONNA is a fan.
Botanical fragrances are deeply embedded in the House of Hanlon's Australian heritage. Christopher Hanlon® returns to his roots some 140 years after its Australian blossoming.
