This scent has a story worth repeating: on a hike in the mountains of Italy, Atelier Cologne founders Sylvie Ganter and Christopher Cervasel stumbled upon a rare flower known to locals as the Brunello. They had never smelled anything like it — there seemed to be a whole ambery bouquet contained within the single bloom. After returning home, they were inspired to create a scent that paid homage to their fragrant memory, and Ambre Nue was born. This highly concentrated Cologne Absolue — 18 percent, to be exact — is the latest addition to the Atelier line.
Scent is objective and it wasn't one that worked for me - a bit too masculine.
Initially the scent is very citrus-y but followed closely with a musky, patchouli / vanilla mix. It was intense initially but faded quickly. Just not a fit for my scent preference.
From Atelier's description:
Notes of mandarin, bergamot, marigold, orchid nigritella rubra, cinnamon, benzoin, cistus labdanum, patchouli and tonka bean.
I received a sample of this perfume in my February box and Immediately knew it was not for me. The scent was so pungent and overpowering that it took over an hour of wearing it before I could smell any of the different notes in it. The scent of amber and woodsy notes are not for me at all. The scent smelled like something a much older woman would wear. And for me the price is unreasonable for a regular woman in there twenties to be able to afford. If I'm going to splurge on a perfume it won't be this one. Sorry Birchbox.2
I liked the idea of the scent but it was incredibly strong even with a tiny spritz.1
really enjoyed the fresh yet sexy scent! its a good daytime perfume3
This was a lovely smell, but not for me. It is very thick and heavy smelling, not a musk I can appreciate.2
This perfume is too strong for my liking. The scent lingers and when I can continuously smell it on me, then it is too much.1
very strong - even in sample size. The scent was just too strong and just too powerful. Not for me.1
This perfume smells like something an old lady would wear. It is strong and overbearing.1
Not a huge fan of the scent. It's definitely not for me.1
Lovely, I really like the scent, but it's just a bit too expensive for me.4
