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.

Suprising Scent
Sampled

This scent surprised me! When I first smelled the sample I wasn't too impressed. But after rubbing a few drops into my skin, the scent mixed well with my body chemistry and had a clean scent that wasn't too overpowering.

Not my style
Sampled

More musky than I prefer, but it was light so that was nice. I'm more of a floral kind of girl and this just wasn't it, but for those not floral-y this might be your thing.

Love it, but...
Sampled

This perfume is lovely -- the amber is warm and cozy while the floral elements keep the scent lively and interesting. I love snuggling up with this in a scarf throughout the day. If only it weren't so ridiculously expensive.

Strong but nice
Sampled

Scent is strong but it is still a lovely scent. I mixed some into a sample of unscented lotion and it's perfect.

strong and different
Sampled

When I first opened this I did not like the scent, but after applying it to my wrist I was pleasantly surprised that it smelled more youthful. It is VERY STRONG and I wouldn't use very much at all. I am a person that likes to use a more moderate scent and place on various parts of my body rather than in one spot only. I really think this scent is too strong for that. If it were more diluted but carried the same scent I'd definitely consider in the future.

Cheap, raw alcohol smell
Sampled

I really dislike this scent. It makes me think of cheap perfumes at the discount store. I was shocked to see the price of it on the full sized version.

If you use a very, very small amount...
Sampled

As I tried to open the sample it got all over my hands. I liked it in a very small dose and my boyfriend commented that I smelled good (after the spilling).

VERY fragrant
Sampled

I'm all about having a lasting perfume, but I could smell this on me all day- and not in a good way. It smelled more like a man's musky cologne than anything, but if you're into that, then this is definitely the perfume for you.

Different But I Like It!
Sampled

I love the perfumes I get in my box and this one is my favorite. I like to wear different scents at different times and this smoky one is perfect at night.

Disappointed
Sampled

I am not much of a perfume person, but am always open to finding something that I like. This was not it. I am an older woman and I thought this smells like an old lady scent. It was really strong, but that may have been because the sample didn't have a spritzer and so putting it on required you using too much. Or it's just too intense, period.
