Atelier Cologne

Birchbox Breakdown

Just as a fine wine evokes a series of different flavors as it breathes, the very best scents evolve throughout the day. Designed by Atelier Cologne fragrance expert Jerome Epinette, Atelier Cologne’s Vétiver goes from fresh citrus grove to cedar forest as it mingles with your body chemistry.

How it Works

Top notes of Italian bergamot sourced from Calabria blend with Sicilian lemon for an opening burst of zest. The fragrance unfolds to reveal sweet middle notes of Tunisian orange flower absolue, violet leaves, and black plum. Rounding out the scent are woodsy base notes of Haitian vetiver and earthy cedarwood.

How to Use

Remove the leather-bound top and spritz onto pulse points: wrists, elbows, neck.

alcohol denat. (sd alcohol 39-c), parfum (fragrance), aqua (water), limonene, butylphenyl methylpropional (lilia), alpha-isomethyl ionone, linalool, hydroxyisohexyl 3-cyclohexene carboxaldehyde (lyral).

Not what I had expected.
Purchased

I love earthy and woodsy colognes. I also am a huge fan of Vetiver and Cedar. Upon reading the description I was willing to purchase the small size without ever having smelled this particular cologne. Upon opening I new that this cologne was not what I had hoped for, but decided to wear it for a week to see if it grew on me. It didn't. It is definitely more citrus and feminine than I had hoped for. That being said all my female co-workers, Mother, Sister and Female friends LOVE it on me. I definitely would remove the "Cedar Forests" from the description and even the name "Vetiver Fatale" I was expecting to be knocked out with an earthy, woodsy, fresh moist dirt, masculine scent. Instead its very citrusy and delicate.
The description does say it melds with your own body chemistry so maybe it just does not agree with mine.

I guess the main thing to take away is that IMO this is not at all a masculine scent so don't expect it to be.

Very Nice
SampledPurchased

I thought this cologne was a rather rich smell over all. It is a scent that your not just going to the store to buy and your not walking past someone in the office who is wearing the same thing. I think its got enough to stand out and help you get noticed while not being over powering with only slight use.

Great stuff!

I've received quite a lot of cologne samples from Birchbox and this one is by far my favorite. It's got a really nice scent with a dark woodsy smell.

Alright Scent

Not my top choice of cologne, but not bad either. I can see myself using it as a daytime scent.

not too shabby

A very nice multi purpose cologne. Not too musky or overpowering. Good for all occasions. Would consider purchasing after sample is gone.

Clean Fresh Scent
Sampled

I love the clean fresh scent of this fragrance. To make the most of my sample, I applied small amounts to pulse points and the fragrance lasted most of the day.
