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.

bleg too masculine

This perfume smells very masculine and orangey. Not quite sweet, a little spicey. Probably better for someone who likes earthy scents

This stuff is amazing!
SampledPurchased

I LOVE this scent! I actually received it in a Birchbox almost a year and a half ago and have been wanting it ever since. It is a wonderful rich orange smell that is on the more masculine side, but super fresh. It's not an overwhelming fragrance either. You can put a little on and definitely smell it but its still not too much.

Love the scent!
Purchased

Beautiful nice orange scent that reminds me of summer. The size is perfect, but I feel this will be a scent staple of mine. So glad I found this in a BirchBox sample box!

light

I love that this is a light scent, but it isn't very long lasting. It's only 10 am and I can't really smell it. I like being able to smell it all day but it still not being too strong.

Almost great but disappointing
Sampled

Right after applying, spookily accurate to the smell you get right after peeling an orange (just like the pith). This faded RAPIDLY and was replaced by soft, warm, inoffensive tonka/sandalwood accord with minimal sillage. I wanted more of the citrus to last on me!

Perfect for summer

I love how fresh this is and how well it stays on in the heat! I discovered this brand in Paris and have been in love with all of their scents!

takes me away

I really enjoy this scent, as it takes me away- back to a time and place in my life that I like to revisit. It's fresh and beautiful and lasts really well. It seems pricey, but I think it's worth it.

Citrus with a Twist!
Purchased

I've been wearing this fragrance since I received my first sample (and postcard) in my Birchbox. It's one of the fragrances I'll run out of and replace often. The warm weather of Texas prevents me from using my spicier fragrances as much as I normally would living back in Boston--it's one of those things you just don't consider when you move to a different climate.

Then along came Orange Sanguine--thank you again, Birchbox! I love the scent of citrus fruit, but I don't like to walk around smelling like a produce market. This lovely scent is light and citrusy, but dries down to the creamy jasmine and the sandalwood I love so much. A little or a lot--you almost can't overdo this fragrance, and it has great staying power, grounded by the floral and wood notes. My collection will NEVER be without this fragrance.

smells delicious

This colonge smells great and actually lasts all day. Now that it's summer time--this is a go-to scent and that keeps you smelling great whether you've been inside or outside all day.
