I were given bored of my very own fragrance so I dipped into everybody else’s, however my favorite was once this Atkinson’s 24 Previous Bond St. which I gave to my dad a few years in the past. It’s a refreshing mix that’s no longer aquatic or citrusy however nonetheless contemporary. The primary notes to my nostril are cardamom and black tea, with a excellent dose of ambergris when it heats up somewhat. The ambergris provides a saltiness to the tea, and somewhat of zing to what would in a different way be an uneventful aquatic. That is beach and seashells, but additionally somewhat of musk that is helping it last more, sweetens up the saline somewhat, bolsters the whole thing else.
My dad’s overview is this was once excellent but it surely misplaced its luster after a couple of wears.
Did it pass unhealthy?
No, it simply stopped being excellent in some way that by no means occurs to the Polo’s and Boss’s.
In my opinion, I feel it’s the ambergris. I to find that ambergris fatigues my nostril and I will’t put on it very a lot, under no circumstances daily, and I wouldn’t be shocked if my dad’s nostril is identical.
Anyway, I introduced to take this almost-empty bottle off his palms and he mentioned no means, my daughter gave it to me so I’m dressed in each final drop.
For those who pass on Fragrantica there are some hilarious evaluations together with person who idealized the British Raj, and no, this doesn’t odor like the most efficient of colonial occasions without reference to the tea and cardamom notes. I needed to learn the overview out loud to my dad, and we couldn’t forestall guffawing, after which he mentioned, I suppose this what all you fragrance writers do. Uh, what?
Anyway, that is unisex with very good longevity, and it was once a excitement for me to put on right here and there. I wouldn’t even thoughts proudly owning a bottle.
