Atelier Cologne Ambre Nue Cologne Absolue - 200 ml

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.

I received this in my April Birchbox, and couldn't decide if I liked it or not. It definitely has a unique and strong scent.

Love this fragrance and love Atelier Cologne!

I received a sample of Amber Noir in my BirchBox and really liked it! It is unlike any fragrance I've smelled and it made me very interested in experiencing Atelier's other fragrances. Recently while in New York, I made it a point to visit the retail location in Soho. I had the most amazing experience there! My sister and I spent the greater part of an afternoon learning about Atelier (the company, the founders, their inspiration for each fragrance, and where their ingredients are sourced from) and of course sampling the fragrances. Atelier does fragrance in a non-traditional way that sets it apart from department store brands. I left with three different scents! Their staff was amazing! I highly recommend Atelier Cologne!

not my favorite

I wear perfume on a daily basis, and find that this smell is too musky- almost old man after shaving kind of smell. sorry.

Love it

It has a nice fresh smell. An orange-y, fresh flower smell. You only need a dap on your wrist that'll last you the whole day! I gave it 4 stars only because it is so expensive!

Not a fan.

This was WAY too much of everything for me. Too musky, too woodsy, too overpowering. Nothing subtle about this scent. Gave me a headache, too masculine for my taste.

Smells fresh

Smells really good. Would love to buy the larger product. Fresh scent sort of like flowers and lasts pretty long.

I like it!

Smells fresh, not sticky or oily and stays on for a while! Perfect for school or a weekend brunch! Loved it.

Love at first sniff

I'm surprised that this scent has such poor reviews -- for me, it was truly love at first sniff! I'm not a big fan of girly, floral-y, powdery scents (and usually I don't prefer amber scents either), but this sample had me going back to it again and again.

Contrary to other reviews, it smells great!

Though others haven't rated this well, I thought the smell was amazing! It was a mix of spices, sandalwood, and a floral hint. It works well for night or day, and held strong throughout a whole day. Definitely a great, complex smell!

to musky

This was too musky for me. i really wanted to like it, but it set off my allergies and gave me a head ache.
