A neo-Victorian love philter for those who believe n the magic of fragrance.
Ahhh… the ethereal innocence of the violet flower, touched by Cupid’s arrow, and transformed into a spell-bindingly sensual love potion. Out of Shakespeare’s love elixir, Atkinsons has conjured a shimmering, powdery violet cloud of a fragrance. As gorgeous and indolent as a midsummer night’s dream, Love in Idleness is the fragrance of love at first sight–a perfumed tryst between an intensely feminine orris-violet accord and a seductive woody chypre dry down.
An extremely Oriental fragrance which transports you on an utterly sensual voyage into the languorous, enigmatic reaches of the Far East.
It all began with a Chinese snuffbox, an exquisite Asian Art Deco objet d’art that fired up Atkinsons’ imagination. Amber Empire became one of the first Oriental fragrances introduced to the Western world in 1927. In its day, it was a fascinatingly foreign perfume, “as mysterious and refined as the ageless East”. But 21st-century Amber Empire is not so much exotic as cosmopolitan, contemporary and devilishly sensual. Carved from a precious amber accord that is captured in slowly rising drifts of oolong tea, earthy and rich, Amber Empire is a moody, atmospheric perfume, vaporous and lingering.
