I was excited to receive a fragrance sample from Atelier, but I was unenthused with the scent itself. It just seemed too "perfumey" to me - maybe a little musky? I actually had a hard time smelling it on me, too. (However, I will say that a friend commented on how much she liked it and asked what it was! I was surprised.) Also - the packaging is weird on the sample - the liquid seems to spill out easily out of the cap.
