Blenheim Bouquet by Penhaligon's has been my perfume for years. I didn't even know it was a men's scent until recently because it was handed over to me from my stepmom (the Original Picky Freak) who started wearing it after decades of marriage to Guerlain's Shalimar.
Blenheim Bouquet was created in 1902 and takes its name from Blenheim Palace, the seat of the Dukes of Marlborough.
The best part is the advertizing done by Penhaligon's, which claims (I love it!!!):
"There comes a time in every man's life when he should choose something to be faithful to. A look. A lover. A fragrance. Blenheim Bouquet should be that fragrance. It is the scented equivalent of an exquisitely cut heirloom suit. Hand-stitched, tailored to perfection, beautifully structured and fitted flawlessly to the masculine body. Unique to ever generation that has worn it".
