A quick spot for the limited edition summer bottle of Atelier Cologne Clémentine California, designed by illustrator Quentin Monge.
As Kevin has observed in past reviews, Atelier Cologne fragrances don’t push any boundaries; they often lean towards the fruity, the sheer, the casual. For those same reasons, I think Atelier is useful “gateway” brand to mention when I want to offer someone the first figurative step away from the Macy’s perfume counter. Atelier roll-ons are easy to find and reasonably priced, and even if the scents don’t inspire ecstasy in hardcore fragophiles, most of them are easy to like.
My own favorites from the Atelier Cologne line-up are Trèfle Pur and Vanille Insensée; neither of those is a floral, which is funny for a diehard flower-lover like myself. If I were to purchase an Atelier floral, though, it might be Love Osmanthus. This is Atelier Cologne’s latest launch, a fruity floral meant to put us “in the mood for love in a secret garden” with notes of osmanthus, lemon and cedar…
A lemming for fans of Atelier Cologne Clémentine California: a limited edition collector bottle. In 100 ml, €108 at Origines in France.
