Atelier Cologne Ambre Nue Cologne Absolue - 30ml

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.

strong scent, but nice

I love the smell of this cologne, but it IS very strong so use sparingly! A little goes a long way!

wonderful scent

I've received a few perfume samples from my Birchboxes and this one is by far the best. The description is right on and it just smells lovely!

a warm amber-ish scent - my favorite of all the scent samples so far.

I have to admit, in my December Birchbox, this and the dry shampoo were tied for things I was most excited to try. The story behind the scent was just too intriguing.
Out of the phial, the initial note is a fresh mandarin, over subtle amber. On the skin, the amber really warms up, with a hint of spice, and the mandarin is joined by a soft floral. It smells almost creamy. Myrrh seems to bridge between fruit and spice excellently.
After wearing for a while, the amber becomes a touch more powdery, and the mandarin goes slightly aquatic, though still carried quite well by the creamy jasmine.
Overall, this is a very comfortable scent to wear, I’d say fairly unisex. Not a lot of sillage, which I appreciate in my perfumes(if you can smell my perfume outside of a three foot radius, I’ve clearly applied too much). It also has a good wear length– four hours from a drop on my wrist, before it was pretty much faded to a memory of citrus.
If I wasn’t already inundated with a small hoard of perfumes I adore, this would definitely be on my wishlist, and I will enjoy my sample. Okay, it may yet go on my wishlist, because it is just a lovely scent.

I love this fragrance, but the price for the full size is a bit out of my budget. Thanks for including it in the box, though1

It has an amazing scent! However, the huge price tag keeps me away.

I love the scent, but I wish it were a bit cheaper since I'm on a professional student's budget and I usually don't remember to use fragrance when I have it... but it will definitely be my next fragrance purchase!

I am in LOVE with this perfume. Thank you so much for introducing me! The amber scent is not too strong, and mixed with the flko it's just amazing.

This scent grew on me
Purchased

Admittedly, I didn't really like this scent at first whiff. Right out of the bottle, it does smell incredibly strong and musky. After giving it a chance and allowing the perfume to settle into my skin and mingle with my natural scent, it's my all time favorite fragrance. It is warm, woody and ambery, with delightful floral notes . A perfect autumn scent.

Yum!

I loved how this smelled! It wasn't too pungent at all, it was nice and fresh and had just the perfect hint of a perfume. My only grievance is that it's so expensive.
