Atelier Cologne

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

Spritz on your pulse points: wrists, elbows, neck, or even behind your knees. You can also unscrew the removable pump to splash the scent directly onto your skin.

alcohol denat. (sd alcohol 39-c), parfum (fragrance), aqua (water), linalool, butyl methoxy dibenzoylmethane, ethyl hexyl methoxycinnamate, ethyl hexyl salicylate, benzyl alcohol

Amazing. Nothing like it.
SampledPurchased

When I first received this as a sample I HAD to have it. When I forget to wear it I'm a little sad. I put it on in the motning - one spritz, just one - and the other day while at my dentist around noon, he asked if I could tell him what I was wearing so he could buy it for his wife. It does last all day but indeed is not at all overpowering, I've never smelled anything quite like it. Will definitely buy again.

Strong

The smell is nice it is just a little over powering so this isnt something I could wear everyday or to work.

I love this scent. I put some on and it seems a little strong but wait just a bit and it mellows a little. I love it

Smells awesome!

I love any fragrance that has notes of vanilla. This was a bit strong, but after awhile the scent softened up nicely.

Too much vanilla

I love hints of Vanilla but this one was a little off. It was almost too much vanilla. Great brand with lots of amazing fragrances but this one I don't care for too much.

Overwhelming

SO vanilla, they weren't kidding! If you like smelling like Pillsbury frosting this is the perfume for you. I have a feeling this one will sit on the dresser for a long time.

Love! But pricey.

I am always skeptical of frangrance samples, but this one really was terriffic. I love the scent and how it wears with my body chemistry. And end of the day, it still lingered. Beautiful! The only issue for me is the price. This one is a little pricey. If I splurge on the smaller size, it will be a splurge, and so not likely to become my daily scent. Still, I wouldn't have tried it except for the sample in my box. So thanks!

...like a cupcake.
Purchased

This is the most beautiful perfume I've ever used. It smells so delicious that I want to dump it all over myself, but I know a little goes a long way. My 5 year old daughter says I smell like a cupcake when I wear it. That's a HUGE compliment since cupcakes are her favorite.

Must have Staple for every woman!

I am new to the brand and was hesitant to buy this but I'm so glad I did!

I've always been a fan of fragrances with vanilla notes but found that they are usually too sweet to my liking. When I was in high school I always wore Warm Vanilla Sugar from Bath & Body Works and this Vanille Incensee reminded me of it. This is the classy, mature, sophisticated version of any vanilla I've ever tried! I LOVE IT! The notes are well blended for the perfect daytime fragrance! I bought the larger 3.3 oz bottle after trying a small sample of it and knew I'd go through it very fast since I wear this almost every day! Very classy and feminine scent...wish it wore longer on the skin but definitely worth 4 stars!

Nice & different
Sampled

I usually stick to the same perfumes but it's been nice sampling new ones I wouldn't ever purchase in full size. This perfume has a wonderful feminine smell. It wasn't too powerful and annoying. It has a great scent that lasts for hours. I would happily purchase a full size.
