Review of Atkinsons 24 Old Bond Street Eau de Cologne

With over 200 years of perfume heritage, niche fragrance brand, Atkinsons, create scents with a keen sense of personality. An icon in the English fragrance world, the Atkinsons 24 Old Bond Street Eau de Cologne is the perfect embodiment of English elegance: refined and classic but with a modern charm.


This Fragrance Smells Like…

Created by perfumers Christine Nagel and Violaine Collas, 24 Old Bond Street has a rich, warm and spicy tone overall. But it unleashes a surprising freshness at the top of the fragrance as the aromatic, tart subtleties of bergamot, cardamom and juniper berries marry together. The fragrance dances between soft romantic and rich smoky scents in the heart, which is made up of delicately spiced black tea and perfumed Turkish rose. Like perfectly aged liquor, the aromatic notes are drawn out by the rich base of smoky peaty cask whisky and cade, which feels like burnt wood.


What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

Inspired by the very first Atkinsons fragrance, English Cologne, 24 Old Bond Street Eau de Cologne has a modern yet timeless feel, celebrating all things British. The tea accord offers a quintessentially British feel, while whisky conjures up images of English gentlemen unwinding in a parlour; the entire fragrance is dripping with sophisticated glamour.


You Will Love This If…

This Perfume Smells Similar To:

The electric, innovative fragrance is hard to compare to other scents, but it elicits a feeling of a long English summer evening as the air starts to turn cool and crisp; you warm yourself with a whisky as the dew settles outside.


Is 24 Old Bond Street Unisex?

A powerful blend of spices with a bold freshness makes 24 Old Bond Street a unisex scent; although the undertones of smoky whisky and its lack of sweetness does typically align itself with masculine scents, this fragrance can certainly be enjoyed by all. Atkinsons’ attitude to fragrance is perfectly summarised in their motto: if you like it, wear it!


What’s The Longevity Like?

Atkinsons 24 Old Bond Street Eau de Cologne offers a burst of fragrance, leaving a subtle scent that marries perfectly to the skin, allowing only those who get close to you to enjoy the pleasing aroma.
