Atelier Cologne Vanille Insensée Cologne Absolue - 30ml

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.

Sexy scent

I am picky about perfumes but I liked this one very much. It's not like other vanilla scents, its unique and I feel sexy as soon as I put it on!

I plan on buying the full size.

Not a good match for me

I generally use only one scent but was eager to give a new one a try. The scent seemed very light and pleasing when I opened the bottle but once I put it on, it was a bit overpowering. Although it claims to not be sweet, I found it quite sweet and it gave me a bit of a headache. I'm sure it is a wonderful scent and may smell differently to others but it's just not for me.

pleasant

Really liked this cologne. The combination of vanilla plus the additional scents was very pleasing, though very strong if you're not careful.

Loved it!

I'll preface this by saying I'm a bit of a perfume geek, I have hundreds (thousands if you include small samplers) of scents from a variety of indie perfumers. I usually shy away from vanilla scents because most companies don't do it very well - you end up with something cloyingly sweet that gives you a headache within minutes of putting it on.

This is NOT one of those vanilla scents. This is closer to a true vanilla - that you'd get from smelling a pod - than the over-the-top sweet vanilla candy you may often find. The jasmine note is definitely noticeable and quite lovely. I really liked it!

Plus, as an added bonus, it's a strong scent (I know perfumes react differently with different body chemistry, your YMMV), in that it takes only the smallest amount on various pulse-points to create a long-lasting scent (though not overpowering if you're careful about how much you apply).

I have a feeling the sample will last me a long time, but I will definitely be picking up more once the sample runs out.

Atelier Cologne Vanille Insensée

I received a sample of this product in my April box. It has a very nice clean smell, and I was very pleased with it. It has a soft smell of vanilla and a bright clean smell of lime. The only thing that disappointed me was that the smell didn't seem to last very long, and since I only had a sample, I quickly ran out. I am hoping that when I purchase this product I won't have this same problem.

A-Maz-Ing

I love love love this fragrance!!! It's smells like a warm cozy blanket! Hits of warm sophisticated vanilla with rich leather and fresh flowers is what you get with this one! Makes you want to go on a romantic date or light some candles, pour a glass of wine and stay in for the night, if you know what I mean! Wonderful sent, wish the sample were a bit larger. I guess it just leaves me wanting to purchase this product!

New Favorite Perfume

I fell in love with this perfume as soon as I smelled it. When I am looking for a perfume, I do not look for a certain type of scent. I just look for something jumps out at me. This perfume did that and I bought it immediately after. I am constantly asked what I wear, or what smells good, and it is this perfume. I wore Viva La Juicy for the past couple of years, and I love it. But this is so light and elegant, but subtly sexy at the same time. I can't imagine liking a scent more than I like this one.
