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.”

I find most cologne descriptors are BS. The person who wrote the ones for this product really should see an ENT. The ONLY note I picked up in this sample was patchouli; strong, pungent, oily, biting, acerbic, bitter patchouli. Honestly, Glade makes a better air freshener.

Pleasant enoygh scent, but I'm a traditional "Old Man" type guy. I'm 29 and my go to scent is Aramis. This does however last the entire day where as so many colognes don't. Would probably be a nice summer smell.

Not for me

I really dislike this scent. Way too woodsy and way too strong.

Too much Patchouli

This brand is a well known and respected brand in the fragrance community, so I was excited to receive this as a sample. However, I found the base note of patchouli to be so strong that it overwhelmed everything else. I was hoping for something more complex and intriguing from such a respected house.

I don't like the smell

Not my thing. I didn't want fragrance samples. I personally do not like the smell but I do not mind the packaging. I will be giving it away as a gift.

The scent just isn't for me, that being said my girlfriend thought it smelled nice. To each their own I guess

Not My Favorite

I have come to accept that I am just not a big fan of patchouli. Just not for me, but compared to others this one is far from offensive.

Too feminine for me

I thought when it said patchouli, I would smell hippie, but it turns out it smells more feminine than anything, with virtually no hint of patchouli. Not for me :(
