Atelier Cologne Vanille Insensée Cologne Absolue - 200 ml

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.

Not for me

i really did not like the smell of this sample. The packaging was very nice and I'm sad I didn't like it, but it was a little too old lady for me and not fun at all... I gave it to my daughter to use on her dolls. No bueno.

Too strong
Sampled

This was strong, and I am also not a fan of vanilla in perfume. I like light perfumes, floral perfumes. This was too much.

No thanks!

Maybe it's just my preference for citrus, but this did nothing for me. Had to wash my hands after applying, I found it so not me. I don't like to smell like I've been baking, so if you do, this is for you....but not me, thanks!

Too strong

I was disappointed by this sample... I wore what I thought was a small amount (a few dots) and had to scrub it off my wrist after 10 minutes, I couldn't stand the smell. It was very strong and warm and musky, and I like warm and musky, but this was overpowering, and kind of nasty.

Not a fan

First off, I'm typically not a fan of vanilla scents, but I gave it a try because I like some of the other scents listed in the description. The scent is way too overbearing for my taste, every time I caught a whiff from my wrist I felt like I smelled like an old lady! Although it did tone done slightly throughout the day I wanted to shower to get the smell off of me, will not be using again!

vanilla

It smells like a old lady.or a van candle. Totally not for me. I did not like the smell at all.

Not so good.
Sampled

I didn't think it smelled fresh. I think it smelled like an older perfume, like something someone older would wear. I did not smell any hints of jasmine. I think that it smelled overwhelmingly like vanilla.

It is an overpowering scent. It's smells like the fake vanilla instead of soft aroma you get like when you make cookies.

Chemical

It smelled very chemical and artificial. I had to wash it off.

Not for that price!

The sample was light and sweet. It wasn't impressive enough for me to pursue it any further and even if I liked it I wouldn't pay such an exorbitant price for a perfume.

I missed the whole "vanilla" connection. It was great to experience it once but I am convinced it is not for me.
