Atelier Cologne

Birchbox Breakdown

Citrus scents have always been a bit of a beauty conundrum: they’re impossibly fresh, but they also have a habit of going missing after a few hours. Until now, that is. Atelier Cologne’s Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue is a highly concentrated — 15 percent to be exact — and distinctive blend that lasts much longer than traditional citrus scents. It has a burst of sweet blood orange and bitter orange laced with heady jasmine and rich sandalwood — you won’t be able to stop sniffing your wrist.

How it Works

Orange Sanguine is meant to recreate a moment in time, and mimics the blissful feeling of sitting on an oceanfront terrace, with groves of orange trees off in the distance. The joyful scent has top notes of blood orange and bitter orange, a middle transition with jasmine and geranium, and a base of amber woods, tonka beans, and sandalwood.

How to Use

Apply to pulse points like wrists, neck, and even behind the knees. Hold the bottle six to seven inches away from skin and spray lightly. Allow the scent to dry for a few seconds before smelling. For purists, you can easily unscrew the atomizer and dab the scent onto skin.

Too strong for me, but a great citrus-y scent!
Sampled

I prefer floral, more discreet scents so I didn't love trying this one. It's definitely bold and zesty and nice smelling, just not the scent for me.

Nice, fresh scent
Sampled

I really thought this was a refreshing scent to wear for spring/summer. It is nice and light, not too heavy.

mixed emotions

I am not crazy over the scent of any citrus colognes. That being said this scent lasted much longer than most. Later in the day the scent had become more subtle and received complements from my peers. For anyone who loves a citrus scent, this is the best I've seen.

Very pungent
Sampled

The label certainly does not lie-- this perfume smells overwhelmingly of citrus orange. Not really an everyday perfume, more of an occasional wear, but be very careful about how much you apply! One spritz is enough.

Nice

The cologne was nice, it smelled like summer. It lasted for a couple hours, but overall nothing special and not worth the price.

No thanks

I felt like the scent was too strong. I didn't even smell citrus. I just smelt overwhelming chemicals. No hints of jasmine or sandalwood... just strong chemicals. Not for me. I wouldn't buy this.

NIce, but not my fave
Sampled

This is a nice perfume. However, given the price and the scent, it is not one I would choose again and again. It would be nice once in a while, if a smaller, more affordable option was available.

I didn't love or hate this scent. Just not really my kind of perfume. I could have done without it.
