Atelier Cologne Mistral Patchouli Cologne Absolue - 30ml

Infused with notes of grapefruit and black pepper, this unisex blend is so distinguished we think it deserves a Michelin star (or two). Designed by Atelier Cologne’s fragrance expert Jérome Epinette, Mistral Patchouli uses fresh fruity and floral notes to transform a base of musky Indonesian patchouli. Equal parts zesty and earthy, the enticing result is totally addictive. Think of it as molecular perfumery.

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.

Not your everyday patchouli

The other notes in this cologne put a twist on patchouli that is just heavenly. On my skin the star anise and pepper come to the forefront, making this a crisp, spicy patchouli scent instead of the typical presentation of earthy musk. Like all Atelier colognes, this wears close to the skin and is not overpowering. It lasts all day on me, but I apply it as I was shown to do at an Annick Goutal boutique in Paris - spray several times on neck and arms and allow some to get on your clothing. I was surprised when the sales lady put so much on me, but she said it was not too much and she was right.

AWESOME!

I have a few of the Atelier colognes and love them all. BUT, I have to say this is my all time favorite.... if you like a soft patchouli scent, give this a try. Its not a heavy scent, but just enough. LOVE IT!

Wonderful scent!

I received this scent in my first or second birchbox in summer 2013. Seriously, I cherished my little sample tube, hoping it wouldn't run out. Alas it has only a few drops left. I will be purchasing either the small 30ml or the 100ml very soon so that I can wear this scent all of the time. Truly an amazing scent.

Unique scent

After receiving the sample size of this fragrance in a monthly Birchbox, I almost immediately purchased the full size. The fragrance is both floral and spicy, blended to perfection. I have received countless compliments from friends, colleagues, and even total strangers.

Great Scent

Like others that have reviewed this scent, I am not the biggest Patchouli fan but this scent is amazing. The scent lasts all day. I highly recommend this cologne.

Beautiful

I purchased Ateliers Mistral Patchouli,although on the high price range, I loved the sample and received more compliments. The French really know their scents, its natural seductive scent stays with you but not in an overly strong way. Glad I bought it. You have to treat yourself once in a while.

Wonderful scent!

I have never been a fan of Patchouli so when I received this I wasn't thrilled. Then, I tried it out. I absolutely love this! It's a subtle, long lasting fragrance that is very masculine. I will definitely be buying a bottle.

Couldn't stop smelling myself

When I received a sample of this product, I was a little hesitant at first only because Patchouli can be overbearing; that was not the case with this cologne! Atelier has a rich and warn smell that encompasses all that is man; if it were a picture, it would have to that of an old school barber shop with everyone from the cast of Mad Men. The scent seems to last forever. It doesn't fade like some other colognes, so you know you're always smelling good. I am surprised though, to find that this is unisex...
