When you hear the word cologne, do you automatically assume it’s for men? I normally do until I came across this particular brand for men and women. Atelier Cologne is the creator of Cologne Absolue. It is an entire new family of fragrances dedicated to the elegance of citruses, the traditional ingredients of cologne. The newest range named ‘Collection Metal‘ contains two cologne absolue’s, Silver Iris (women) and Gold Leather (men). They are the first two of the distinctive collection covered in genuine precious metals of real gold and silver.
Silver Iris contains top notes of tangerine, pink pepper and blackcurrant, heart notes of violet leaves, iris pallida and mimosa and lastly, base notes of patchouli, white amber and tonka bean. For me, this cologne is the perfect scent to carry from day to night. It has a light, yet powerful punch and lasts throughout the day without needing a touch up. It is smooth and beautiful to wear in any season and has a lovely warm feel about it. Judging by the price, this cologne is by far, the most luxurious scent I have ever come across and as much as I would like to recommend it, my budget just doesn’t reach that far. However, if you fancy treating yourself, then by all means give this a go, you won’t be disappointed.
