A long time ago, at the very end of the 18th century, a young and ambitious gentleman from Northern England decided to go search for luck, glory and riches in the busy streets of bustling London. That gentleman was none other than James Atkinson. The year was 1799.
It didn’t take long before London’s upper crust went positively insane over his balm with the scent of freshly cut roses. However, the young designer had an even stronger card up his sleeve. He introduced an Eau de Cologne whose composition was quite different from all the standard Italian fragrances that dominated the perfume market at the time. James Atkinson’s Eau de Cologne was fresh yet warm, and spicy with a daring longevity.
In 1826, king George IV asked James to become the official perfumer to the royal court. The popularity of his fragrances was quickly accelerating and his satisfied customers soon included Queen Victoria and even the sworn enemy of England – Napoleon Bonaparte.
Now you can try one of the exclusive fragrances by Atkinsons yourself. They’re especially beloved by elegant men and charming women – in short, everyone who loves audacious perfumes with deep historical roots.
