Atelier Cologne Mistral Patchouli Cologne Absolue - 100 ml

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.

woodsy cologne for fall
Sampled

I received the sample in my birchbox this month. In my opinion, this is just as it reads--this is a cologne, not a perfume. Now, I wear men's deodorant and a unisex perfume on the regular, but if you're looking for something summery and feminine, this isn't it. I do like the smell, and it lasts a long time, but I'm not in love with it. It's very woodsy, and I like my fragrances to be a little lighter. That's not to say I haven't worn it every day since it came in the mail and I could end up talking myself into buying it. This could be a great scent for tromping around the woods like Grizzly Adams in the fall--which I sometimes do.

great packaging and fragrance

I felt like it made me smell like a man, albeit a hot man who has great taste in perfume, but metrosexual is not my type.

Nice product
Sampled

While this is a nice product, I am not a fan of the scent. I received this sample in my July BirchBox and I knew before I got it I wouldn't like it. I'm just not a fan of Patchouli, but my mom loved it so I gave it to her. However, I do love this brand. I received their Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue in my April 2013 BirchBox and really like it a lot.

Unsure

At first when I smelled it in the bottle it smelled really bad, in my opinion, but I wanted to see what it smelled like when applied because perfume usually changes once on and it did smell better when I put it on but I don't usually wear this type of scent. It's very earthy but still has a fresh tone to it. I'm not sure how I feel about this scent.

Better then My Burberry!
Sampled

I can not wear fruity smells. It drives me crazy and gives me a headache. I am a plain Jane girl so I fell in love with this scent. It is very earthy and mixed in with my body oils, the spices linger for hours which is very calming. The scent isn't for everyone but if you enjoy the crisp woodsy smells of the forest, this is the perfect cologne for you. I looked up the price on amazon.com and the 100ml bottle is $195!! The price here is a steal!

Not for me

Personally I did not like the scent. I did not try it on because it was a little much for me.

In love with this scent!

I normally cannot wear perfumes that are strong and flowery. This scent is wonderful. I am pretty much nursing the sample I received. Love it!

Not a fan

I do not like the smell of patchouli to begin with. I went to try it out to see if my opinion would change and the scent was just to strong for my liking

Surprising

This actually reminds me of my grandmother and the perfume she would wear. It's a mature smell but I'm in love with it!
