Perfection to perfection? Almost!
"The Legendary Collection - The Excelsior Bouquet" is such a complete, in itself grown and balanced fragrance that it is perceived by me only as a beautiful, slightly luminous whole.

This fragrance reminds me of ancient English abbeys, harmoniously integrated into the surrounding landscape in the straight lines of their architecture.
Mostly surrounded by slightly hilly meadows or farmland; a lively up and down through the wind playing in the stalks. Long avenues of birch and poplar trees are the only interruption of this moving land towards the target.
One of the classic abbeys forms the centre; built of bricks, slightly weathered and surrounded with many secrets of the past.
The bell tower, not spear-like and pointed, but angular and broad, slightly defiant with battlements, certainly served as a lookout for possible dangers: whether of natural or human origin.
The bells not only rang for the church services, they were a warning against fires and approaching enemies.
A tower as functional as it is beautiful!
The surrounding monastery is dominated by a harmonious square of a shady cloister next to the church. Here peace reigns, there is time for a first devotion - a place of contemplation.
But also the still today so famous monastery gardens with spicy smelling medicinal herbs simply belong to it.

It is in these that I feel "The Excelsior Bouquet" has its roots.
Fresh coolness, which is probably caused by a good portion of pepper and a hint of grapefruit, meets the austere aroma of sage ice, which grows here on a rather meagre mineral-rich soil.
A versatile herb that is not only famous for its spice, but also for its healing power.
So a cup of this tart tea can not only quench the thirst for some teas that take getting used to: sage reduces the sweat flow in a natural way - a blessing for all those who suffer from it.
This herb cools from the inside and still provides many very important minerals.
Sage - Salvia - Salvator = Saviour! Savior from the heat? Anyway!
Many a business man drinks his cup of sage tea to get through his day not only with a cool head.
Is this the secret of the cooling freshness of "The Excelsior Bouquet"?
A hint of nutmeg and lots of earthy-green vetiver are noticeable; also a slightly masculine leather chord. (Of course, these abbeys also had tack rooms.)
The fine, unmistakable glow of this fragrance composition comes to my joy once again from the aldehydes.
The Atkinsons brand has dared to use this fragrance - thank you!

Although my senses are very sensitive, I find it very difficult to detect individual aromas in this complex beauty of fragrance.
Analyzing is not my case anyway, so only the conclusion remains: "The Legendary Collection - The Excelsior Bouquet" is elegant and wearable at any time of day or night.
Its long presence with a slightly decreasing fragrance intensity over time enriches many hours.
British understatement, which also creates a certain distance here, makes this fragrance pleasant:
He doesn't hug, he doesn't warm, he doesn't bend over - he keeps a cool, fresh distance and is therefore especially magical!

This is a very polite, noble Englishman, whose acquaintance to make me much pleasure prepares.
His distanced nature is a nice change - and therefore our togetherness has relatively few highs and lows: a completely relaxed fragrance pleasure currently lives with me.
It's welcome!
