This petite spritz is ideal for times when you’re on-the-go. Get the larger 100 ml size for easy refills.

Atelier Cologne

Birchbox Breakdown

Infused with notes of grapefruit and black pepper, this unisex blend is so distinguished we think it deserves a Michelin star (or two). Designed by Atelier Cologne’s fragrance expert Jérome Epinette, Mistral Patchouli uses fresh fruity and floral notes to transform a base of musky Indonesian patchouli. Equal parts zesty and earthy, the enticing result is totally addictive. Think of it as molecular perfumery.

How it Works

Top notes of ripe grapefruit blend with black pepper for an opening burst of zesty fresheness. The fragrance unfolds to reveal heart notes of star anise, geranium, iris, and smoky incense. Rounding out the scent are woodsy base notes of rich and earthy Indonesian patchouli.

How to Use

Remove the leather-bound top and spritz onto pulse points: wrists, elbows, neck.

alcohol denat. (sd alcohol 39-c), parfum (fragrance), aqua (water), limonene, linalool, citronellol, alpha isomethyl ionone, citral, benzyl benzoate, geraniol, farnesol.

Just ok

I am not a fan. I don't know much about this brand. This cologne does not smell that great to me. I won't purchase this sent. To be fair everyone likes something different when it comes to sents. This one is not for me.

Not my favorite

Colognes are cool and I love getting them, but this one wasn't my favorite. It was okay, but I like watery scents a lot more.

Smells Nice - but please read for extra details!
Purchased

I ordered this after falling in love w/ the Orange Sanguine. I am a patchouli lover and just knew inside this would be a winner - well it does smell nice - but it is a bit more masculine than I expected - and after further consultation discovered that it is a unisex scent - so it is going to react different for everyone -

Misleading Name, Nice Fragrance
Purchased

This is a nice fragrance, but the name is a tad misleading. Instead of patchouli dominant (as I was expecting), I get a healthy dose of anise (which smells a little like black liquorice). For me, this isn't a bad thing at all. It's great for the summer,

Amazing Smell

I got this in my birchbox and was amazed at how good it smelt! I LOVE the musky, earthy smell on my skin. My new favorite scent! I will be asking for this as a gift or getting it for myself when my current perfume runs out.

I didn't ask for this...but I like it

When I set up my Birchbox profile, I noted that I didn't care about fragrances, and didn't really want them. Regardless, I've gotten several fragrances in my boxes over the months, and I've liked all of them. This is one of them.

Perhaps Birchbox knows more about what I like than I do.

Not your average hipster smell

I was borderline offended when Birchbox sent me this sample -- I didn't recall checking the "hipster" box on my style preferences. Why this patchouli insult?

Then I tried it. Wonderful! Very light, to me smells like a musky lemon, but in a good way. Reminds me of sailing in the Greek Isles. Will buy/request for gift.

Not your everyday patchouli

The other notes in this cologne put a twist on patchouli that is just heavenly. On my skin the star anise and pepper come to the forefront, making this a crisp, spicy patchouli scent instead of the typical presentation of earthy musk. Like all Atelier colognes, this wears close to the skin and is not overpowering. It lasts all day on me, but I apply it as I was shown to do at an Annick Goutal boutique in Paris - spray several times on neck and arms and allow some to get on your clothing. I was surprised when the sales lady put so much on me, but she said it was not too much and she was right.

AWESOME!
Purchased

I have a few of the Atelier colognes and love them all. BUT, I have to say this is my all time favorite.... if you like a soft patchouli scent, give this a try. Its not a heavy scent, but just enough. LOVE IT!
