I like this fragrance, but I do think the rose and oud pairing is a little overplayed now these days. This one is just OK, and I could take it or leave it. I think it is nice for this time of year (spring and summer). I think that if I wear it more, I will begin to appreciate it more. Overall, I think it's worth sampling because you may love it.
Atelier Cologne Rose Anonyme Petite Cologne Absolue - 30ml
Atelier Cologne Rose Anonyme Petite Cologne Absolue - 30ml My wife loves this cologne on me. It is subtle and long lasting. The price is on the higher end, but you get what you pay for.
It's okay, in short doses
This smelled pretty decent when I put it on, but it got tiresome pretty quickly. Once it dried on me, it sort of smelled like someone had pressed roses together with a cigar. Not really for me
Not a very masculine Cologne.
I tried the small cologne sample that came in my April 2014 Birchbox.
It is a very powerful, concentrated formula that you definitely don't want to apply liberally, just apply to your pulse points.
I haven't ever worn floral colognes, especially one with the strong essence of Rose.
The scent hung with me all day, and my significant other liked it, said it was OK, but wasn't really for me.
Not generally a fan of anything rose scented or sweet...especially in fragrance - this however was one of the best scents I have come across in a long time...I'm obsessed with it and love that the formula is more concentrated as a little goes a long way and tends to last all day- its really unique and something that definitely stands out from the crowd
I am not too daring when it comes to scents. I was stuck on CK Into U for Her for years, but once I got this in my Birchbox and tried it the compliments and confidence just kept coming. It was never too strong, lasted all day, and EVERYONE loved it from the lady at the bank counter, to my regional manager, to my fiance. It is spendy but worth every penny for how good you smell and feel. In all fairness I've had the 30 ounce bottle for almost a year so a little does go a long way.
Disappointing packaging, poor quality.
I received a sample and absolutely loved it, as did my boyfriend.
When I ordered the full sized bottle, I was extremely disappointed with the bottle and the packaging considering the price is on par with Chanel, which is what I usually buy. The bottle, sprayer and label are all cheap
and the top popped off mine and wouldn't go back on so I have to make ANOTHER purchase (an atomizer) to salvage the product and be able to use it. Really feel like this company is trying to pull one over on the customer with these prices and poor quality.
Also, while I love the scent, it has no staying power. Back to Chanel scents and no turning back.
Possibly favorite perfume ever.
Light. Sensual but not too overwhelming for the office. Not citrus-y. Really not one component that dominates any others. I was not really an every-day perfume-wearer, but this one changed me.
My New Signature Scent!
I love this perfume - LOVE it! I am a perfume junkie and while I always sample new scents I had settled on my 4 favorites in the past few years and nothing has swayed me from those... until now. I received this as a sample in my monthly BB and tried it... within five minutes I was hooked. Overall I love the scent of roses. I use a lot of rose water sprays in my skin care routine but that scent is never lasting and traditional rose-scented perfumes have been almost sickeningly sweet in my opinion. Not this! It has a slight, smoky undertone that cuts the sweetness of the rose perfectly. But yet you don't feel like you are smelling sandalwood or any traditional scent, either. It's just a perfect combination. A few notes:
1. It truly lasts, longer than ANY other perfume I've owned. Ever. In fact, if your spray reaches your clothing or hair you will notice the scent the following day, just as much as when you first sprayed. My advice is to apply with a conservative hand at first and add more only if you really need it.
2. The initial spray is NOT how the scent settles. When I first sprayed my new bottle I was worried I mistakenly ordered the wrong scent as it smells quite different when you first spray it. Give it a minute to settle.
3. People go crazy for this scent. And I love that they don't know right away that I am the cause of the smell, it is softer than that. I am always hearing people say "what is that great smell?" And then after a minute, "is that you? You smell amazing!" I will purchase this for life!
I've sampled two kinds of cologne from this brand and both were just too overpowering for my taste. Will not purchase.
