Atelier Cologne Mistral Patchouli Cologne Absolue - 30ml

While the word patchouli might call to mind images of the hippie generation, this sophisticated fragrance couldn’t be further from that. Designed by Atelier Cologne’s fragrance expert Jérome Epinette, Mistral Patchouli uses grapefruit and black pepper notes to enhance a base of Indonesian patchouli. Equal parts zesty and earthy, the enticing result is more “leading man” than “flower child.”

Patchouli Cologne

I'm just not a fan of this scent, not very attractive to me. I think that I would enjoy more of a spice in my scent.

I'm still in the initial stage of my search for a "favorite" cologne. This was nice but I'm not sure if I would wear it everyday or just special occasions… this could be since I'm new to this but I also find the scent wears off quickly. Im cautious of over applying so thats been the result. Its a nice add to the kit. The low key packaging makes it easy to travel with in case of the occasion comes up.

Sorry...not a pleasant scent for a cologne.

I couldn't get past the smell. It reminded me of a hookah lounge...not for me.

Pleasantly surprise

I normally do not like the scent of patchouli but this cologne smells pretty good! My girlfriend likes it :)

For another man perhaps...

So even before the "coup de grace" that sent this one into oblivion for me, I just couldn't get behind this fragrance. I liked it in the bottle, quite a bit actually, I enjoyed smelling it. I thought the notes were distinct and interesting; obviously a skillfully crafted scent, but I just didn't like it on my skin. I think in this case the assertive patchouli was responsible, but I have to note that I had similar feelings about a sample of Blood Orange, also by Atelier: loved the smell but i couldn't wear it. Fragrances are such an individual and subjective thing, it depends so much on the person's body and its own scents, but also WHO is smelling you. This is why the final blow to this sample came when my wife smelled it on me and said I smelled like her grandfather.

Wouldn't Buy it...

Couldn't smell it. Just couldn't get it to register on the old schnoz. My wife said she liked it, but it seemed really faint to me, and if I'm not sure I have it on... then it's a dud for me.

Smells good, but for someone else.

I really like the idea of discovering new colognes. This particular scent however, is just not for me. It has a very strong odor before it is applied. I can smell the alcohol. The smell itself is very woodsy, outdoorish, scent with hints of patchouli. Maybe good for hipsters, but not for someone like me. For the Spring/Summer I prefer sweeter/fresher scents.
