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'll preface this by saying that I am a huge cologne fan/collector, and have probably near 60 full sized bottles in my collection, along with about 200+ samples, etc. And, thanks to the previous Birchbox I was introduced to the house of Atelier. I'm not a fan of patchouli and this cologne is very heavy in it, obviously. It is nice, but given that's it's an EDC rather than an EDT (eau de toilette), the essential oil concentration is much less, making it last a tad over 2 hours on my skin. Atelier makes a wonderful assortment of EDCs, and I highly recommend the orange one and the neroli one.4
Got a ton of compliments. Sample size was small, only got 2 uses out of it. But great spring sent.4
This cologne has a wonderful smell. It is a rich, sharp odor and I have gotten several compliments while wearing it. Great scent.5
So, this is the fragrance in my 1st Birchbox. I really like this smell. The grapefruit leaves soon after applying, but the patchouli stays with you. A great find!5
I really enjoyed the scent, and so did my girlfriend. But I already have a large selection of colognes, and this rather prototypical fragrance doesn't stick out enough to buy.
Sample, unless you are looking to accumulate an Anchorman-esque collection of cologne.
I am not a big Patchouli fan but this smelled better than I thought it would4
I was excited to add a new cologne to my routine. Sample is hard to get out because it doesn't come with a spray top. Cologne smells ok, not the best.3
I've had several friends who like to go for straight patchouli oil as their preferred scent, and it is always overwhelming and makes you feel like you just walked into a head shop.
This is not that kind of patchouli. Instead it seems to be much more balanced with citrus and pepper, making what I think is a great summer scent.
At first i kinda liked it. However, after awhile it started to bother me. My girlfriend and others kept asking me if I was wearing bug spray. Not for me.1
This sent is very manly and lasts for a good while.5
