Atelier Cologne Mistral Patchouli Cologne Absolue - 100ml

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.”

Too strong of a scent!

Not a fan of patchouli! This is very concentrated and strong. Was too much for me. I will not be purchasing this one.

Far too abrasive for my taste

The description says it's unisex, but I disagree. The scent is very rugged and masculine. I tried it on my fiance, but it was very overpowering and he did not enjoy it either.

Yuck...

I HATED the way this smelled. I'm sorry but its was overpowering and too musty for me. You could smell it from miles a way

Not for me

I actually like the scent, but the sample packaging made it difficult to apply without going overboard. Also, it's way out of my price range.

umm no!

I was going through my samples reviewing them and didnt even remember getting this one. This scent is straight up man smell. I love getting birchbox..and I never complain since I know its samples..but Im a bit upset that this was even sent to me at some point. What a waste..I must have had some cool stuff in my box that month to overlook this awful smell. I wouldnt even think a man smelled good if he wore it. This is for your grandpa.

Saving up to buy this ASAP!!

Yes, its pricey. However, it is a classic and professional scent. It would work well on either a male or female but seems to mesh well with my body chemistry. I like deep, warm and slightly musky scents. This is on the deeper side of that- but it smells amazing. Hard to describe- but clean, deep and warm. Great for the workplace- I would suggest wearing this as opposed to cheaper and more whimsical perfume to a board meeting.

A little too eccentric
Sampled

I'm all about perfumes and variety of aromas, but this was just a little too extreme for me in terms of patchouli. Maybe if I mixed it with something else and wore it in the winter, it'd be doable.

Smells like a guy

This scent is totally not for me. I wore it to test it out, and I was paranoid that whole time that people wouldn't want to be around me because I smelled stinky!! It is too earthy and musky for me. I tried mixing it with other scents too, but I don't think I could wear this on a regular basis.

I am a fan of earthy scents but if I buy one with patchouli I prefer to have it mixed with undertones of other scents. I feel that patchouli alone is too strong for me.
