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.
