Did somebody spill their gin?
I remember like it was yesterday. 2015 I walked into the office and my colleague smells like never before. Sassy, playful and fruity, very interesting. When he asked him what fragrance it was, he told me Penhaligon's Juniper Sling, a brand I had never heard of at that time.

When I was driven to the KaDeWe again, I wanted to try the scent of course. I applied it and wow. Juniper Sling, in German juniper sling, really lives up to its name. It was actually as if someone had spilled his gin on me, in a positive way.

Very fruity with a shallow warm and sweetish undertone due to the leather, brown sugar and iris. Lies relatively long in the air and you can enjoy it on your own skin in about 5-8h.

The bottle is simple and has the classic Penhaligons design
In itself a good fragrance for every gin lover, who cannot always go around the world drunk ;)

A wonderful, spicy fresh fragrance
Many thanks to Andreas for the bottling of Juniper Sling :-) I have to say that I am very impressed by this fresh fragrance. When I look at the price tag, I immediately change my mind because the sillage is rather weak. Although it lasts around 10 hours on my skin, most of the time the fragrance is only perceptible close to the skin.

The top note starts fresh and spicy with juniper berries, a subtle smokiness, alcoholic as well as citric. The heart note offers plenty of black pepper and cardamom. There is also a hint of leather in the background. The base has an interestingly sweet, creamy and subtly powdery scent of ambroxan.

If you like gin and tonic, you should definitely give this one a try. More sillage and less money, yes, then the bottle would move in with me.

Super-refreshing Aromatic Cologne
Lots of reviewers have commented on the gin and tonic scent of JUNIPER SLING, but of course what they're really saying is that the scent of gin derives from juniper, which is the focal note, logically enough, of JUNIPER SLING. The little juniper berry appears to have two and only two well-known uses: one to produce gin; the other to cook sauerbraten. For many people these are the sole encounters with this unique-smelling berry. It would be interesting to find out how the Germans feel about this cologne, since it might have a "familiarity breeds contempt" effect upon them.

I have always thought that gin and tonics smell a bit like hairspray or, I should say, my memory of my mother's hairspray when I was growing up, as I have not smelled that product in quite a while now. So it makes sense that the opening of JUNIPER SLING should remind me, too, a bit of hairspray. I hasten to clarify, however, that in this case the comparison is a compliment, as I rather like the quirky scent of juniper.

What I like about JUNIPER SLING is that, although it is a somewhat standard cologne, the usual suspects are not the dominant players, so this creation ends up smelling completely different from all of the other colognes. The quality of materials is very good, and the composition is refreshing and invigorating, with a somewhat energizing aromatherapeutic effect.

It would be easy to overdose on this fragrance because of the dominant juniper note, but as a change from the usual cologne routine, JUNIPER SLING offers a zing of eccentricity. Yes, there is vetiver and citrus and a bit of spice, but really the juniper is the star of the show. There's a real paradox here: good old boy conservatism conjoined with wacky nonconformism.

I like JUNIPER SLING and am very happy that ElenaLondon, the British Perfume Ambassador to the United States, sent me this sample. No one has done more for British-U.S. relations than she has! (-;

Refreshing gin and tonic...
This scent is just so incredible to me for the first 15-30 minutes. A fantastic, creamy introduction of the fresh juniper, leather, pepper, nutmeg and some cardamom.
Unfortunately, it lasts shortly, turning quickly into a skin scent and utterly vanishing within 3 hours on my skin. The heart is almost non-existant and the drydown only shortlived.

I would seriously suggest for Penhaligons to make an Extreme or EdP version of this, because at almost € 100 per bottle, this is overcharging for a lovely Eau Fraiche. Dammit!

My favorite Indian fragrance
After having tried several gin and juniper fragrances, many of which are more pseudo with a lot of imagination or more cheap-soapy-floral than anything else, I ended up back at Juniper Sling after detours and many disappointments. There is no better gin fragrance than this one. Yes, my personal opinion. Especially in the base note. If you want to make it last longer, you can rub some shea butter on a few areas of skin beforehand. Otherwise, what are mini atomizers for on the go for *wink*.
I love gin and gin and tonic and I hate cheap, spicy, fuzzy gin. I demand the same from a gin perfume. Life is too short to drink bad booze and you should have exactly the same standards when it comes to perfume! Cheers.

Smells like a man at a bar drinking gin and tonic. Not much character here and no longevity of which to speak.

It smelled like a nice gin, but I don’t want to smell like an alcoholic beverage.

You spilled gin all over yourself. You changed your clothes fifteen minutes later.

Big gin & tonic vibe from the prominent juniper note. Clean, aromatic, spicy and refreshing but also close to the skin and short lived.

Smells like a dry and heady gin and tonic. If that appeals to you, you will love this. Realistic and fresh.
