For 100 years, they will talk about the Khatun riding by an English Rose in the Desert. Everyone called her Khatun, but in London, the bold heroine of Atkinsons’ latest perfume was known as Gertrude Bell. English adventuress, archaeologist, and diplomat of the Levant, Miss Bell was Our Woman in Baghdad during the Empire’s prime. In this rich spicy-sweet evocation of oud, we travel with Miss Bell as she did, on horseback through the burning deserts of Mesopotamia alongside tribal horsemen in embroidered cashmere robes.
Top notes of osmanthus flower and red fruit jam fuse with heart notes of Turkish Rose, saffron, and iris before drying down into the base notes of oud, leather & vanilla.
