Atelier Cologne

Birchbox Breakdown

While citrus ingredients have long been used in the making of fine cologne, few scents capture the intricacy of their tart-yet-bitter aroma. This fragrance celebrates citrus in all its forms, from the sour sweetness of lime to the sharp, rindy smell of Calabrian bergamot. If your favorite things in life come with a dash of citrus—like the twist of lime in a gin and tonic—this scent will strike a chord.

How it Works

Let’s get one thing straight: You may have tried a citrus cologne, but you’ve never smelled anything like this. The soul of this fragrance lies in its vibrant top notes: cedrat from Morocco, lime from Mexico, and bitter bergamot from Calabria. Heart notes of mint and juniper add some complexity, while grassy base notes of elemi and Haitian vetiver round out the fruity aroma.

How to Use

Spritz each wrist once, then dab your neck if desired. While your nose may tell you otherwise, please do not add to food or drink.

ALCOHOL dENAT, PARFUM (FRAGRANCE), AQUA (WATER), D-LIMONENE, HEXYL CINNAMAL,BENZYL SALICYLATE, CITRAL, LINALOOL, CITRONELLOL, COUMARIN, GERANIOL, EUGENOL.

First ever cologne to make me smile
Sampled

This is the first ever cologne that actually made me smile when I first smelled it! I tried to open the sample carefully, but it accidentally spilled on my fingers and I thought boy now what if this stuff stinks? How am I gonna get rid of the smell quickly? But much to my surprise it was delightful smelling! I really actually smiled when the scent hit me! The only down side is the price :( too much!

I LOVE this scent

I got this as part of the summer 2014 mermaid box and I am in love. I could bathe in this scent. However, it is so light it doesn't seem to last all day, which is sad because I love the way it smells. I wish it weren't so pricey and lasted a little longer.

Very masculine and heavy

I was NOT a fan of this scent... I was hoping for a summery light citrus scent, but instead it smelled like something my husband would wear. I definitely don't think it is feminine at all, and I honestly didn't smell the citrus. It seemed way more musky and heavy to me. But it does have GREAT staying power! Will be giving this away if I can find someone to take it... maybe a guy?

My new go to scent
Sampled

I got this as a sample & was so excited to try it! I absolutely love this cologne. It stays on longer than any other perfume I have & has a beautiful citrusy clean scent. Works beautifully with my chemistry. I will be saving up & getting their whole line. I found my self resmelling my wrist all day because it was just so nice!

Perfect, light scent!

This cologne is very light and summery. I loved the sample so much that I bought the full-size. Definitely a go-to fragrance.

Love this scent!

This is a light, great scent for summer. I love it! Have received several compliments since I started wearing it. I work at a hospital and can't wear anything too heavy, but while this has staying power it isn't too much scent.

Nice but not for me
Sampled

This scent is everything the description said - very citrusy and zippy and summery, though just not for me. Fragrance is so personal, and it just isn't a scent I identified with.

I would never use this product. I think it would be great on an older women but not on a younger lady. Thanks for the sample

smells like summer

This scent smells citrusy, summery, and very girly. It's not too heavy so you can wear it everyday if you want. It definitely lightens your mood when you wear it!
