Atkinsons The Excelsior Bouquet 100ml EDTRegular price £117.00
For modern-day adventurers who wear The Excelsior Bouquet EDT, not even the sky's the limit. Created by perfumer Benoist Lapouza, it captures the exhilaration, danger and the heroism of history's first-ever non-stop flight over the Atlantic. The Excelsior Bouquet is a captivating olfactory journey. It is the experience of chilled air on metal, the heat of the cockpit, the leathery scent of aviator jackets and the rush of adrenaline as the airplane slowly climbs up and up.
The fragrance takes off with a high-altitude accord of grapefruit, flint and the chilled-metal volatility of aldehydes. It continues its ascent into the heart with the floral herbaceous nuances of knife-cold sage dramatically contrasting with the intense, spicy heat and tension of nutmeg, cardamom and Sichuan pepper. Holding its course, the scent begins to glide in brightly serene skies, aloft in the fullness and clarity of vetiver and the deep balsamic nuances of incense. The dry down derives its warmth from a virile leather accord reminiscent of an aviator's leather jacket and sustained by the ambery and almondy nuances of tonka beans.
