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.”

Gorgeous

When I first saw the word "patchouli," I had that instinctive gag feeling. You know the one, the one where you're around too much tie-dye and unbathed people? Anyway, this is NOT the patchouli of outdoor concerts and unruly facial hair. This is perfect. You know when you get a gift from a high-end department store and you open the box and get a whiff of the most pleasant and clean smell? This is that smell. The smell of luxury--classic, clean, and bright, just perfect for the summer. I love this.

Great Scent

This is my new favorite cologne, The wife likes it too. It has a little kick, it's not sweet like many other modern scents.

Not so great, but not bad.

I would not consider this to be a "patchouli" scent, anymore than I would consider a "white chocolate, skim, no whip mocha" to be a coffee. Sure, the ingredient is in there (somewhere), but you'd be hard-pressed to identify it. The scent is light, with a refreshing citrus tone, but will not wear through the day; it is an Eau de Cologne.

Not my style

The smell was a little much for me. I had my girlfriend smell it on me and give me her opinion, it wasnt a positive one. I think for the cost there are better things out there. It is a good attempt, just was too much for me.

Will definitely be buying this

I loved this sample once I put it on! I wasn't a fan of it so much when I first smelled it, but once I applied on, I couldn't get enough! I went through my sample size way too fast. I will definitely be buying this product.

Fresh patchouli
Purchased

A wonderfully light, crisp Patchouli. Very androgynous - not feminine in the least for me. Husband doesn't think it's sexy - and I like it because it's refreshing and earthy, not cloying or sweet. Medium sillage.

Very Pleasing Scent

This is one of the better fragrance samples that I have received. Not too strong and not too weak. Nice mellow scent that my wife likes. The only downside is that I wish it came in a smaller bottle to keep the cost down.

Earthy is spot on

This cologne makes me think of a man that chops wood during the weekend and slips on a suit during the week. I've been using a different scent for five years and though this isn't my cup of Eau de Cologne, it's a good option for spring-summer.
