Atelier Cologne

Birchbox Breakdown

Infused with notes of grapefruit and black pepper, this unisex blend is so distinguished we think it deserves a Michelin star (or two). Designed by Atelier Cologne’s fragrance expert Jérome Epinette, Mistral Patchouli uses fresh fruity and floral notes to transform a base of musky Indonesian patchouli. Equal parts zesty and earthy, the enticing result is totally addictive. Think of it as molecular perfumery.

How it Works

Top notes of ripe grapefruit blend with black pepper for an opening burst of zesty freshness. The fragrance unfolds to reveal heart notes of star anise, geranium, iris, and smoky incense. Rounding out the scent are woodsy base notes of rich and earthy Indonesian patchouli.

How to Use

Remove the leather-bound top and spritz onto pulse points: wrists, elbows, neck.

alcohol denat. (sd alcohol 39-c), parfum (fragrance), aqua (water), limonene, linalool, citronellol, alpha isomethyl ionone, citral, benzyl benzoate, geraniol, farnesol.

Odd Smell

I am not a fan of this scent at all. Wasn't sure if I got a bad bottle or not.

I like it, the girl loved it
Sampled

This stuff smells great while being more manly than "hippie". It's my favorite scent of the ones that I've gotten from Birchbox so far.

My favorite!
SampledPurchased

I've written a review of this before, when I sampled it. Now, I've gone and bought it! While there is a steep-ish price tag on this product, the random %off emails + points = a much more affordable product.

This is my new favorite cologne. I like this one because I like the way it smells. This one was not about the Mrs. liking it or anything, I simply enjoy smelling this way all day! I added the orange version sample to my order, so more Atelier to try!

Nice job on this one Birchbox!

I Love it, Wife doesn't

Amazingly long-lasting frangrance. I am STILL using the sample. one drop for each wrist last and entire day!!! the $125.00 price tag is tad high - but considering how long it lasts - its a great investment. I am in love with it, my wife says it is too strong. I just dropped back to one drop and pressed wrists together.

SO great

Perfect for winter
Sampled

I don't know if I'm alone in this, but I like to have a scent for every season. This one is the perfect scent for fall and winter. My inner hippy was thrilled with the patchouli scent, and my inner bargain shopper loved how little was necessary, and how long lasting it was.

smells like my 6th grade guitar teacher
Sampled

Yeah, regardless of what they say in the description, this scent reminds me of the 40-something Deadhead who tried to teach me Hendrix licks when I was a pre-teen. I've yet to receive a cologne sample from this website that I actually feel inclined to use.

Good patchouli: It DOES exist.
Sampled

When I read the word patchouli I was immediately prepared to make a disgusted face when I first smelled it. I was pleasantly surprised that this did not smell like the trampled grass of a field after a Phish show. Very, very nice.

Love this scent
Sampled

This is one of the better cologne's that I have ever had the pleasure of using. The scent was Soothing but still masculine. One that I could wear Through out the summer and most fall months. Everything seemed to combine perfectly one scent didn't over power another, having a combination of both effeminate and masculine but still keeping its masculinity. As i said before this is one of the best fragrances that i have had the pleasure of trying. Thank you for giving me the chance to rate this product and to have my voice heard.

Strong smell

Cologne is so personal - it is hard to review it effectively. I am not a huge patchouli fan, but this scent is more earthy than hippie. There is some spice as well - but overall not my fave.
