Bathroom essential: Atkinson's London

Back in 1799, Cumberland chap James Atkinson set up shop on (then) fashionable and convenient Gerrard Street to display his eponymous line of opulent colognes.

He quickly became a hit within the highest circles of society - Napleon, Admiral Nelson and the Duke of Wellington to name just three - and was announced the personal perfumer of the Royal Family in 1826.

Now after 200 years of hibernation, fully refreshed and revived, the quintessentially British brand is back with five of their covetable classic fragrances – 24 Old Bond Street, The British Bouquet, The Odd Fellow’s Bouquet, Fashion Decree and The Nuptial Bouquet.

With its aromatic cocktail of juniper, rose, black tea and eccentric note of smoky, oak casked whisky, 24 Old Bond Street (shown) is our pick of a rather regal bunch.

The colognes can be bought exclusively from Harrods and are also available in matching bath, body and home fragrance products.
