Atelier Cologne Vanille Insensée Cologne Absolue - 100ml

We fell in love with Atelier Cologne’s Vanille Insensée Cologne Absolue at first sniff. Unlike most vanilla scents, this one is fresh, not sweet. Top notes of bright lime and coriander mingle with middle notes of jasmine and oak moss, while Madagascar vanilla and amber notes anchor the scent. Happily, the romantic fragrance lasts all day — we’re smitten and you will be too.

It was okay...

I liked the smell, but it was very strong. I think this would be the type of vanilla I would want as a house scent, not a body scent. The same bottle was a little weird though because the top would not stay on. Fortunately, I haven't had any major spills or damage. It's almost like there is pressure build up in the tube that pushes the plastic top off... I like vanilla scented fragrances, but this is too expensive and too 'flaunty' in comparison to my other vanilla scents.

Delicious
Sampled

Very comforting scent for me. I really enjoy the lightness of the lime and the warmth of the vanilla notes. It has a hint of summeriness but I can totally see this working year-round.

Pleasant but too sweet
Sampled

I'm not much for musky, vanilla type scents since I live in a place that is very humid and hot most of the year- those types of fragrances just weigh you down and seem too heavy. I did love the woodsy and citrus notes though.

Love the Vanila Scent
Sampled

Vanilla is a favorite of mine but I've never been able to find one that I truly LOVE! this one changed that. I have received so many compliments on my scent today. I wear many different perfumes and this one got noticed for sure!

Just lovely!

I have to preface this by saying that I am VERY picky about where I get my fragrances. I almost exclusively get them from indie perfumeries. So I was quite surprised by how much I love this! The included postcard is pretty, too, though mine was bent :/. When I read the notes, I was intrigued because I adore vanilla, jasmine, vetiver, and amber; and I like lime, oakmoss, cedret (citron), and oak (and the other notes sounded interesting). In the vial I smelled mostly vanilla backed by jasmine, with the lime creating an "uplifting" impression and the woods lurking. Wet on my skin the jasmine bloomed with sweet vanilla in a surrounding haze. Lime was subtle but added a suggestion of sharpness. On the dry-down, some woodiness was more apparent. I think the woodiness I smelled most was oak. But it was still dominated by vanilla and jasmine with a diffuse lime. Dry/later it was still heavy with vanilla and jasmine and was very sweet. It lasts a REALLY long time. Unfortunately, I can't wear it if I am feeling remotely migraine-y, because it will give me a headache. But I actually really love this. It's a sweet and pretty vanilla-based scent that isn't really foody (although I do tend to love gourmands, but that is neither here nor there). It's a fairly heavy, cloying scent, so it's not for everyone. But if you like it, it's perfect for cooler days.

This fragrance smells divine !! Soft and smooth. I have SO many perfumes now that I do not need to buy any more right now. I would buy this one if I needed something.

Really liked the scent and the vanilla will be good in the fall/winter seasons. A little more than I typically spend on perfume though...

Loved this
Sampled

I'm not big on super fruity scents, so I really loved the vanilla. It just gave a warm and cozy feel. The scent lasted a long time, too.
