Never be Caught


Atkinsons London 24 Old Bond Street

I obtained bored of my possess fragrance so I dipped into all people else’s, but my favourite was this Atkinson’s 24 Old Bond St. which I gave to my father a lot of yrs back. It’s a refreshing mix that’s not aquatic or citrusy but continue to clean. The principal notes to my nose are cardamom and black tea, with a good dose of ambergris when it heats up a little bit. The ambergris provides a saltiness to the tea, and a bit of zing to what would normally be a boring aquatic. This is seaside and seashells, but also a little bit of musk that assists it last more time, sweetens up the saline a bit, bolsters anything else.

My dad’s evaluation is that this was very good but it shed its luster after a several wears.

Did it go bad?

No, it just stopped staying fantastic in a way that never ever comes about to the Polo’s and Boss’s.

Personally, I believe it’s the ambergris. I discover that ambergris fatigues my nose and I simply cannot have on it quite a lot, certainly not working day following working day, and I would not be astonished if my dad’s nose is the identical.

Anyway, I supplied to just take this nearly-vacant bottle off his fingers and he claimed no way, my daughter gave it to me so I’m sporting every single final fall.

If you go on Fragrantica there are some hilarious opinions which include 1 that idealized the British Raj, and no, this does not scent like the greatest of colonial instances no matter of the tea and cardamom notes. I experienced to read through the review out loud to my father, and we could not quit laughing, and then he reported, I guess this what all you fragrance writers do. Uh, what?

Anyway, this is unisex with excellent longevity, and it was a enjoyment for me to dress in here and there. I would not even brain proudly owning a bottle.
