Original Penguin Original Blend by Original Penguin Cologne.
Original Blend is a distinctive yet casually masculine scent that combines energetic citrus and spice with musk, aromatics and powder. The overall effect is one that is brisk and stylish. The clean top notes are lime, bergamot and apple, followed by a center that is an arresting blend of leather, lavender and nutmeg. The base notes create a smooth, faintly lingering finish of amber, sandalwood and musk. The overall effect is
refreshing and sophisticated.
Original Penguin was founded by Abbot Pederson. Pederson got the original idea for his penguin mascot during a 1995 Nyc business trip for Munsingwear. While killing time before his homeward flight, and after a few drinks, he happened upon a taxidermist's shop, bought a stuffed penguin ("Pete") to accompany him on the flight. After knocking Pete's head off, a stewardess removed Pederson's tie and placed it around the stuffed bird's neck, joking that the handsome penguin would make a handsome icon. And the rest is history!
