A bowl of fruit in the lobby of a Spanish hotel
I own different Atelier Cologne scents and though this is one of the most popular ones, it as one of my least favorites. I had high hopes when I ordered it, based on the comments, but for some reason, it never clicked between Musc Impérial and me. Other than the more citrusy scents of AC, there is something less natural about this one, while this lack is not compensated by character or a distinct personality either. Maybe I am just getting too old for fruity scents like this. On the other hand, it serves perfectly as a room scent and I read that it was actually created as a room scent for a hotel in Barcelona. Mixing it with fractionated coconut oil, it is perfect in a reed diffuser and a very uplifting, charming, happy signature scent for our house in summer. For me personally, I will stick to other marvels of Atelier Cologne such as Mistral Patchouli or Emeraude Agar. Each their own of course.
