Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue - 100 ml

Citrus scents are impossibly fresh, but they also have a habit of going missing after a few hours. Until now, that is. This concentrated, distinctive blend lasts much longer than traditional citrus scents. Orange Sanguine is meant to recreate a moment in time, and mimics the blissful feeling of sitting on an oceanfront terrace, with groves of orange trees off in the distance. The joyful scent has top notes of blood orange and bitter orange, a middle transition with jasmine and geranium, and a base of amber woods, tonka beans, and sandalwood.

Nice But Strong
Sampled

The fragrance is nice and citrusy, but it's a little overpowering when I put it on first thing in the morning.

Love it

I was very unsure of trying a citrus type of smell but I couldn't stop smelling it once I put it on! It is perfect for summer and I can't wait to buy it!

Not long lasting
Sampled

The smell of this was ok but for the price, I would expect the scent to last longer than the hour that it did

Smells like a cleaning product

I liked the orange roots of this scent, however it reminded me very strongly of furniture polish...

Pretty but not for me
Sampled

This was a little too fruity for me. I would rather have something slightly more floral.

Overwhelming!
Sampled

I received this sample in my very first Birchbox (I was so excited to open it I could barely contain myself!). I don't tend to spend much on cosmetics, but I will part with more money for a good perfume. I like my scent to be noticeable for a moment when I walk by, or when I hug a friend. The Atelier Orange Sanguine almost knocked me over, just from opening the sample bottle! Unfortunately, it spilled on my fingers and I had to thoroughly wash my hands to get rid of the overpowering smell. As put off as I was by my first encounter with this cologne, I was willing to give it a try. Sometimes things smell better when you wear them than they do in the bottle, so I figured I would wait until the next day and dab a little on after my morning shower.

That was this morning. I did my very best to "dab a little on" (it's more difficult to get that tiny sample bottle open without spilling a little), but it's been hours and I feel like I'm being smothered by the smell. The idea of the combination of scents is very nice, but the orange is so overwhelming that I find myself turning my head trying to escape the smell that won't go away.

If you want to get the large bottle and find a way to only apply the TINIEST amount, it may be good. I will never buy this cologne because it makes me want to run away from myself.

Not for me

While the product does seem to have staying power once applied, I did not care for the fragrance.
