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.
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.5
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.5
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 overbearing5
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.5
I love this scent! Very subtle but is perfect for the summer! Will definitely keep using! My girlfriend loves it!!5
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 -5
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.5
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.
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.
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.5
