Atkinsons London 24 Old Bond Street

I bought bored of my possess fragrance so I dipped into absolutely everyone else’s, but my favorite was this Atkinson’s 24 Outdated Bond St. which I gave to my father many a long time in the past. It’s a refreshing blend that is not aquatic or citrusy but still clean. The key notes to my nose are cardamom and black tea, with a superior dose of ambergris when it heats up a little bit. The ambergris provides a saltiness to the tea, and a little bit of zing to what would otherwise be a tedious aquatic. This is seaside and seashells, but also a little bit of musk that allows it past lengthier, sweetens up the saline a bit, bolsters all the things else.

My dad’s evaluate is that this was fantastic but it misplaced its luster after a number of wears.

Did it go undesirable?

No, it just stopped remaining excellent in a way that never takes place to the Polo’s and Boss’s.

Individually, I imagine it is the ambergris. I uncover that ambergris fatigues my nose and I can not use it pretty considerably, unquestionably not day just after day, and I wouldn’t be stunned if my dad’s nose is the exact same.

In any case, I supplied to take this just about-empty bottle off his fingers and he claimed no way, my daughter gave it to me so I’m sporting each individual very last drop.

If you go on Fragrantica there are some hilarious critiques including a single that idealized the British Raj, and no, this does not scent like the best of colonial moments no matter of the tea and cardamom notes. I had to study the overview out loud to my father, and we couldn’t stop laughing, and then he stated, I guess this what all you perfume writers do. Uh, what?

Anyway, this is unisex with superb longevity, and it was a pleasure for me to use in this article and there. I wouldn’t even brain possessing a bottle.
