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.”

Definitely unisex--will depend on your tastes

With all perfumes, I think it really comes down to scent preferences. This smelled pretty good to me but I'm not a huge patchouli fan. It also seemed to fall a little more on the cologne side than the perfume--almost manly.

However, I'm glad to have the sample vial of this in my purse because its strong scent is great if I, say, spill coffee on me and want to cover the scent.

musky but sexy

This is a scent that is definitely more musky than I would normally wear. I've worn it out twice now and the muskiness definitely lends to a sexy, confidant feeling for a night out. I liked it and am sure I'll use my entire sample bottle.

not long lasting

the smell is a little strong but that is why i like this cologne. it is definitely unisex but i tend to like unisex/male scents better anyway. the only negative thing really about this was the scent didn't last very long. i would probably buy it if it wasn't so expensive

Okay

Don't love the scent, but it's not bad. I prefer lighter scents and I think this is too musky. I think it may actually work better for a male.

Better than Juicy Couture's LaLa

It is not my favorite scent in the world, but I liked this MUCH better than Juicy Couture's LaLa sample I got in my last box. I get headaches from scents VERY easily, and I haven't had a problem with this product.

Potent and strong

I generally like reviewing and trying new fragrances but I wasn't fond of this one. It was very masculine to me and I actually thought I was sent a mens fragrance instead. For a man, I think it's very nice! It's very potent so very little could go a long way.

Nice scent, just not my style

This product was a sample in my July box. It is a nice, really earthy scent, with a bit of a musk. It had great staying power, and lasted several hours. But, it wasn't really my kind of fragrance.

Smells nice

Patchouli is a scent only some like to wear. I am a fan of the natural scents as well as musky smells. This is lovely and earthy.

Strong patchouli

A very strong, and yes semi-masculine scent. Would need a very specific venue. Didn't love or hate it, don't plan on purchasing the full-size version, but a nice sample.

Very light scent, not long staying

This was an interesting addition to my July box. I don't typically wear a lot of perfume during the summer, as I have not been able to find a scent that could last throughout the sunny days of perspiration. Although as I enjoyed the scent, but it could not withstand the summer day.
