Atkinsons Gold Fair In Mayfair is a new unisex fragrance from one of London’s oldest and finest perfumeries. After spending the Christmas holidays experimenting with wearing it myself and giving it to my boyfriend to wear, I’ve decided two things; Firstly, it’s a beautiful and unusual fragrance which is like no other fragrance I own. Secondly, as much as I love wearing it, I think it suits my boyfriends skin better than my own and consequently, I prefer smelling it on him, rather than myself. Which is why I’ve decided to stop wearing it and given him sole ownership of the fragrance. Of course, he’s had to promise to only wear it when I’m around!
When it comes to fragrances, I tend not to save my favourites for special occasions. I’m of the belief that if we save everything for best, we would never use anything and instead every day should be made special by filling it with our favourite things. However, I need to make a slight exception for this one, because Atkinsons Gold Fair In Mayfair is a limited edition fragrance and only 2000 bottle have been made, which means I won’t be able to replace the bottle once it’s finished. Luckily for us, a little goes a long way and one-two spritz’s is all you need! It opens up with a heavy hit of Absinthe which is unusual, refined and oh-so boozy. Once the absinthe displaces, there is a lingering trail mixed with sweet iris, warm earthy cocoa beans and green, herby sage, as well as a hunt of sweet, spicy nutmeg. At the base of Gold Fair In Mayfair, you’ll find warm, slightly sweet, woody, earthy and dry with notes of amber, styrax and vetiver. It’s really hard to describe, but it’s a rebellious night time fragrance which is warm, leathery, woodsy and boozy with a touch of sweet and spice. It’s makes me think of road tripping across America, with a pair of trusted jeans and a beloved leather jacket. Stopping at all the historic towns and cities to watch bands play through the night and drink with new friends and strangers. It’s refined, sexy and very cool. It’s not for everyone, but nor is the nomad life. Enjoy!
Atkinsons Gold Fair In Mayfair is out now and is only available as a 100ml bottle. Each bottle is numbered as only 2,000 bottles have been created. You can find it at Atkinson’s Burlington Arcade and Harrods.
