The longevity of this supposedly triple extract version of 24 Old Bond St., which is essentially an eau de cologne, is poor in the colder months. It is just a little better in the summer, but I am not sure I get more than three hours of a very close skin scent from this even in July. On me the melange is dominated by exceedingly fine tea and woody-rose notes. I find it subtle, sophisticated and momentarily intoxicating. Until it disappears. I like it a lot, and have sampled it a number of times, although I have refrained from purchasing it because it is expensive for a seriously under-powered fragrance. Maybe if it were a quadruple extract…….?

The scent is great. It's very fresh and uplifting. It's versatile, but would be better suited for spring/summer. However, even as a more potent version of the original 24 Old Bond Street, the longevity is poor.
This reminds me of mulled wine at Christmas time....I intertwined apple and wine fragrance with a spice kicker in the background. Not exactly fresh but green with a powdery rose quality that recalls the ladies dusting powder of yesteryear. Sort of pleasant u
, but a very dated and female slanting profile. Lasts less than 5 hours on skin. Not a terrible fragrance...not a remarkable either.
