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.”

Works for me
SampledPurchased

I received a sample of this in my box 2 years ago and always meant to get it. I finally did and I love it. It's the the right strength. The spray comes out very fine and in a small amount so it took a bit to figure out how much to use, but that's the case with any new scent.

Unique fragrance but probably not for everyone
SampledPurchased

I really like fragrances but have an issue with most available in stores b/c I am attracted to colognes that all smell the same (kind of peppery). I won't mention other big brand names but i had a 3 or 4 that were only slightly different and my wife would complain that I always smelled the same. Then came my Birchbox and all the boutique brand cologne samples. My prior knowledge of patchouli was that it was reserved for Grateful Dead and Phish concert attendees. I am not going to try to one up the product description but know that if you're looking for a scent that is different yet sophisticated, try this one.

Subtle and sophisticated scent.
Purchased

I love the way this smells on my skin. It's not overtly loud like other fragrances, but it wears close to the skin. Warm and inviting, fresh and chic.

Surprisingly good cologne

I wasn't expecting much when I received this cologne in my box, but its now a go-to. Its scent is modern and not overbearing

Keeps me fresh get compliments

I found this product to be quite refreshing and it lasts all day. Spritz some one and it gets you energized. It's not too heavy either as some colognes can be. It's just right. I look forward to ordering it again.

Smells Nice - but please read for extra details!
Purchased

I ordered this after falling in love w/ the Orange Sanguine. I am a patchouli lover and just knew inside this would be a winner - well it does smell nice - but it is a bit more masculine than I expected - and after further consultation discovered that it is a unisex scent - so it is going to react different for everyone -

Amazing Smell

I got this in my birchbox and was amazed at how good it smelt! I LOVE the musky, earthy smell on my skin. My new favorite scent! I will be asking for this as a gift or getting it for myself when my current perfume runs out.

I didn't ask for this...but I like it

When I set up my Birchbox profile, I noted that I didn't care about fragrances, and didn't really want them. Regardless, I've gotten several fragrances in my boxes over the months, and I've liked all of them. This is one of them.

Perhaps Birchbox knows more about what I like than I do.

Not your average hipster smell

I was borderline offended when Birchbox sent me this sample -- I didn't recall checking the "hipster" box on my style preferences. Why this patchouli insult?

Then I tried it. Wonderful! Very light, to me smells like a musky lemon, but in a good way. Reminds me of sailing in the Greek Isles. Will buy/request for gift.
