Party like the 1920s
The sweet and slightly intoxicating floral scent of the heliotrope dominates the opening and makes this fragrance smell classy and elegant but also feminine and dated, like something a "bright young thing" would have worn to a cocktail party in the 1920s. The heliotrope subsides with the dry down and allows more tobacco and resins through but with The Odd Fellows' rather weak performance it doesn't take long for the skin scent to vanish without a trace.

Like all Atkinsons creations The Odd Fellow Bouquet is a distinguished, dressed up fragrance. The scent is successfully built around a vintage interpretation of sweet florals, tobacco and resins but can only be recommended to those who don't mind the occasional reapplication.

THE ODD FELLOW'S BOUQUET by Atkinsons
Upon initial inspection, the note structure of The Odd Fellow’s Bouquet is by no means complex. The fragrance appears to be a seemingly simple masculine recipe. Atkinsons makes the experience a much more intricate and dimensional creation. It’s not for certain, but based on the name, the concept might have been inspired by a 17th century English fraternal organization known as The Odd Fellows. The Odd Fellows were a fraternal organization that was set up to protect and care for their members and communities. The scent profile certainly conjures up spectral images of chivalrous gentlemen Londoners, sporting starched shirts and brilliant colored ties in mahogany clad rooms, while performing their social duties of the day. If this is part of the fragrance’s storyline, the scent’s structure successfully contributes to the historical reference. The opening of The Odd Fellow’s Bouquet brings a parade of warmth and spice to woo the senses. It’s much like a savory gingersnap that keeps your taste buds persistently stimulated. The ginger note is foodie and downright consoling, and is lightly spiked with peppercorn to intensify the experience. The heart of this fragrance is a rich blend of a velvety vanilla accord, combined with an opulent, fragrant dark tobacco note. The tobacco in The Odd Fellow’s Bouquet is aged and refined. The vanilla, smoldering tobacco and the gourmand-themed top notes make for an arresting combination. In the base, there hides a vaguely medicinal quality, layered with powdery labdanum, creating a unique antiseptic freshness. It makes the finish of The Odd Fellow’s Bouquet curious and beguiling.

You don’t necessarily need to be a fan of gentlemanly scents to enjoy The Odd Fellow’s Bouquet by Atkinsons. You also don’t need to sport a velvet smoking jacket and ascot but it certainly couldn’t hurt. The Odd Fellow’s Bouquet is effortlessly masculine and perfect for someone who enjoys the spice and tobacco genres of fragrances. It smells sophisticated, just like what you might imagine every well-respected British gentleman might. The Odd Fellow’s Bouquet is a slightly more contemporary take on a reliable masculine theme, and impressively done by Atkinsons. This fragrance is quite refined and completely worthy of owning.

Tobacco in the Gentleman's Club
A beautiful name - but this is not at all a fragrance for odd types.

Somewhere in a renowned Gentleman's Club in London, an Upper Class gentleman is sitting on a Chesterfield sofa, reading the TIMES which he considers exaggeratedly progressive. The smell of the newspaper mixes with the strong pipe tobacco which the Lord takes his time to enjoy. In India, he learned to appreciate ginger biscuits ... and now he perceives a slight hint of ginger in the club room as downstairs in the kitchen the crew is busy preparing the Afternoon Tea. Of course, ginger biscuits are part of the fare.

When the tea is served to the Lord, our "odd fellow" adds a good amount of sugar to his cup. The scent of vanilla is exuding from the biscuits in front of him and has quite a strong impact. But this is precisely the mixture of scents the Lord appreciates: smoky, sweet and spicy.

The contrast between the tobacco and the sweet ambery base seemed interesting and rather new to me. A tobacco fragrance worthy of recommendation, suitable not only for "odd fellows" but also for "quirky ladies".

(Manufacturer Morris from Italy: Bravo! GOOD JOB!)

This odd fellow gives Tobacco Vanille a run for its money. Sweet, vanilly and a bit smokey. Almost exactly like Tabac Rouge. Wonderful.
