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.
I received a sample of this dreamy perfume in my latest Birchbox. It is earthy and vanilla-y. It's a different type of smell than I would normally choose, but I love it! (Isn't that one of the best things about Birchbox- getting to try things you would never have picked for yourself?) It has a really wonderful womanly elegance that feels sophisticated and timeless. It makes me feel like I should be sauntering down the streets of Paris. Love it!4
A friend got a sample in her BB and raved about this cologne. It was a significant gamble for me, because this friend and I have shared perfume before, and we do not have the same body chemistry. Something that smells great on me can smell putrid on her (or so she says), so I wasn't sure if the same would be true in reverse. When I had some credits, I wanted to give it a try, so I bought a bottle. I am absolu(t)ely thrilled! Yes, I do like the scent of vanilla, but not enough to wear it. The other scents balance it so well that it's not like wearing vanilla.
It has this lovely cut to it that both my husband and I love. It's his favorite scent that I've worn since Boyfriend. He can't get enough of it. Even at the end of the day, I can vaguely smell it and I love it, but it never overpowers.
I am personally a fan of vaguely masculine or unisex scents. I don't like really girly scents. I like to smell like a woman, but a woman of power, and this does it. It's spectacular.
I want this sooo badly right now after getting a sample in one of my mystery sample packs! Oh. My. YUMMINESS!!! This is such a beautiful fragrance with a lovely price tag to boot! I have some points saved up now but we will wait just a tinsy bit longer before this puppy hits my doorstep. Girl still has to live within her means to budget AND Birchbox!5
I am in love with this scent. I'm not into feminine floral scents so this was absolute perfect. I wear this daily and get a ton of compliments! I'm so glad I received this sample several boxes ago. I have since purchased it and it has become a permanent staple for me!5
I received this perfume sample in my very first Birch Box and I absolutely LOVED it. The scent is amazing, but not overpowering. I kept catching myself sniffing my wrists all day! I only wish the sample had been bigger. This is definitely a product I would consider buying in its full size!5
I actually bought this for my daughter who got it awhile back in her first Birchbox. It has a nice light but yet classy scent5
received as a sample and bought the largest size I could find!! I get compliments all the time. This has become my favorite even over my past favorite "Poison".5
I get complimented on this scent all time. Very subtle, delicate and sexy. The vanilla is not too strong, and the scent lasts a good part of the day.
I am in a fragrance rut...I don't have allergies, but fragrances often give me headache....so cologne has to pass the headache test. This did! Woot!
Next, I have to like it. The is sweet yet subtle. Present, interesting, but not overpowering. It is a winner. The price tag is higher than some, but few fragrances are so balanced.
