If you want to tip your nose on someone, make sure that you are not only looking posh or dapper, you are smelling like it, too. And nobody does snobbery as well as Atkinsons 1799, a brand with a rich 200 years of royal history.
But what makes Atkinson a well-known brand to the rich and famous is actually deeply rooted in the simple fact that one's passion can create an empire. One that even royalties seek to have in their vanities. James Atkinson shop is braved by most of London' elite for his famous concocted rose-scented balm. Why braved? Why because James owns a bear that was utterly devoted to him!
While everyone wanted something from the Italy, it's Atkinson who actually summoned the courage to create a scent that it thoroughly English. Breaking the norm!
Something the Ton usually frown upon. But so curious was everyone of this scent that is refreshingly fearless, warm and spicy, quite unlike any other.... that all of England came flocking for this certainly British fragrance. This unique blend of aromas and his increasing popularity, Atkinson, by the order of King George IV, was proclaimed the Official Perfumer to the Royal Court of England.
Don't worry, darling, you don't have to have a to be in line to the throne or even have to rub elbows with celebrities to enjoy James Atkinson incredibly posh scents. You can now get them at here in Manila at all the Arts of Scent boutiques in Resort's World, City of Dreams and Shangri-la Plaza.
And what exactly are we to look forward to from Atkinsons? Well, certainly everything!
I got a chance to try all the fragrances they brought in to our tropical shores and there is a few bottles worth collecting. Atkinsons have 4 key collections. Two of which I will be sharing here with you as I got to them both very well during its launch in Manila.
The Emblematic Collection which contains it's signature fragrance, 24 Old Bond Street. Why name a perfume after an address. Well, deary, it's obviously the address of the street that marked the day Atkinsons became a brand! After being named the Official Perfumer, Atkinsons new that this posh street is the place to be to reach more Lords and Ladies! This scent contains the perfect blend of juniper, rose, black tea and smoky oask casked whisky. Isn't that just distinctly Brit?
