In 1955 a Minneapolis-based underwear and military supply company called Munsingwear introduced their first golf shirt to America. The Penguin on all their shirts is called Pete and the shirt became known as The Original Penguin. Fast-forward to March 2012 and Original Penguin introduces its first ever fragrance.

Original Penguin for Men is a classic oriental fragrance with top notes of golden apples, purple sage and Mediterranean neroli. Black pepper features in the Eau de Toilette’s heart notes, along with fir needle and lavender provence. The base is a mix of vanilla noir and red patchouli, drying down to notes of tonka bean and dark musk.

We like the hip- flask style bottle with magnetic heavyweight gold cap which features cross-stitching detail and an embossed penguin logo. Original Penguin for Men is aimed at men of all ages, a classic scent suitable for work or leisure.
