Just got a 10ml mini of this "stuff".I actually have ever in my life used an air refresher for toilets that smelled almost exactly as this.Overwhelming lemon with some inadequate sweetness and ...wood?No way!It's just lemon lemon lemon until it settles into still lemony but now with a bit "kölnisch wasser"-ordinary character of herbs.Maybe i just got a false sample or maybe back in the 74 that was the ultimate "englisch wasser"-i dont know.As a modern man, i would accept this just as a requisite from the history of perfumery but not more.
Citrus and verbena opening notes; with a long-lasting, woodsy and masculine body.” (From an Atkinsons brochure in the package.)
This is a lovely little chypre with typical lemon and grassy notes. The opening is very citrusy and refreshing. The green notes are excellent. They are herbal and interesting. What might they be? Perhaps sage and /or clary sage with tarragon. Vetiver might be lending a grassy note. For sure there is patchouli in the later phase, but it is well done (with a light hand). This settles into a grassy vibe, with clean soapy aspects. A short-lived and light fragrance, now discontinued. It reminds me of Greenergy by Givenchy.
