Penhaligon's Launches New Fragrance That Smells Like Needles, Sewing Machines

Want to Smell Like Needles? Well, You Can

I love Penhaligon's fragrances, but its new scent, Sartorial ($135), is enough to put a person in stitches. It's supposed to smell just like the interior of famed Savile Row tailor's shop Norton & Sons. Lest you think the notes must be something suitably Old Boys Club like tobacco smoke, leather, and cedar, though, the fragrance is said to "evoke the masculine scent of sewing machines, needles, wool, and cloth." I don't know how, exactly, sewing machines are distinctively "male," but I'm even more curious about how the presumably metallic notes and textile odors blend into something wearable. Are you intrigued by this one, too, or will you leave it to the well-dressed (and well-heeled) gentlemen of London?

I'd be interested in smelling it, if only out of curiosity.
