A cologne for real powder puffs!
Augustas nose is scented with a sweet vanilla, so I think, no - please not vanilla croissants. But what did I actually expect...?!
Then citrus and coriander set in, it becomes tenderly fresh and tangy green, and that immediately loosens the carefully formed vanilla dough again before he can even think about baking, and it disappears again. Even a resin smell is blowing by now, maybe something like pine, then the vanilla melts with soft mist and becomes - powdery! Very very powdery!

I have to think briefly of such wonderfully full-bodied vanilla powder bombs as Boudoir. But the boudoir door opens only a very small crack and closes again immediately. We'll stay out tonight, on the clean side. Powdery, powdery. Did I already say that the fragrance already has an incredibly powdery effect after a quarter of an hour? And not too cute at the same time. A hint of vanilla in the baby powder, a hint of cosmetics, makeup, with a too thick powder layer, so that you can smell it yourself after applying. Powder puff full. But balanced in such a way that despite the excess powder there is nothing to cough up. On the contrary, when you inhale the fragrance you feel a light coolness that counteracts the warmth of vanilla in a pleasant way.
A light silver sheen is created. Oak moss adds cool elegance. Vetiver is also listed. A soft, clear green shines through when the powder cloud settles somewhat. That is the special feature of this fragrance.

And now, unfortunately, I have to sneeze. So take for a moment someone this constantly too dusting powder box aside!

The base gets warmer in the end, a little spicier and smells really very good on warmed skin. Not much, but good. All in all, it remains within the framework of the AC style that I appreciate, somehow airy and carefree. And totally powdery. Powder cologne. What the...? At least one for real powder puffs!
I liked to try it. Hatschi.

Light, refreshing Vanilla...
This is a vanilla that is in keeping with the spirit and direction of Atelier Cologne in that it is an eau de cologne with a vanilla aspect to it. That means that it is not a perfume with a heavy vanilla note. Instead it is one which is surrounded with citrus notes.

The lime and oakwood are the main notes, along with the vanilla, are what make this. I also detect the citron backing up the lime, and the subtle jasmine, giving a dirty quality to the mix.

I think this is a vanilla for people who don't like vanilla in perfumes. A very wearable vanilla for men and a unique, refreshing choice for women. Not bad at all!

Vanille Insensée
This fragrance opens with an unusual vanilla note. Dry and not sweet at all, its delicate aroma is immediately transformed by an incense accord into something resembling the essential oil vapors found in a Turkish steam bath. I appreciate the idea of the accord: a non-sweet, light vanilla paired with smokey and salty notes of woodsy nature, but to my nose the end result is not nice. Eventually the accord settles into something more pleasant: a cured sheer vanilla which I admit could be an excellent base for layering. This scent has tremendous tenacity: it lasts more than 8 hours on my skin.

Clingy Slinky with a Touch of Lime
I purchased Vanille Insensee from Sephora, in the roller-ball size spray, and while I loved the cozy cling, FARINA memories amped up with a sophisticated filmy wood, like a lazy Sunday in, wearing his over-sized shirt, or in your gray sweatshirt draped over a shoulder in nubby wool socks, with your legs hanging over the edge of an over-sized chair, the silage wasn't big enough and the scent stayed too close to my skin.

However, I recently revisited the perfume in the fuller size and was more liberal with my application, making sure to spray my clothes a bit, too. My constant monologue? "Holy vanilla beans is this good."

I am in love. I think this perfume is perfect for fall and winter (not because it's heavy but because it's cozy and comforting), a snuggle scent. Even my 6 year old son remarked, "Don't leave now," after a bedtime story, "you smell too scrumptious." A lighter girls' nights out, I'd layer this with a feminine rose scent like Rose de Rosine Roseberry. Love, boozy, acoustic music, arousal. Buying the bigger bottle now.

a lovely dirty vanilla
this reminds me of warn oak floor boards... and then i smell vanilla but like BARELY, you know what i'm saying? its just earthy and warm and sort of sweet but like, the sort of sweet that's been asleep on the floor of a smoky tobacco filled bar for hours. its already muted when you put it on, like you've been out all evening lazy dancing in some humid, speakeasy... and then i catch a hint of lime... ermahgerd. love.

vanilla edc
Non-cuddly vanilla. More woody than spicy or dessert-like. Papery, actually. Citrus notes at the top tell you that the vanilla won't be either warm or sweet. Ambery and smoky notes are accents rather than dominant notes, and let the vanilla keep its crisp edge.

The Atelier line purports to reinvent the cologne genre. Without much sillage, strength or endurance Vanille Insensee doesn't step far out of the range of dynamics of the eau de cologne, but the composition certainly isn't the classic citrus edc. It has similarities to l'Artisan Parfumeur Vanille Havane, Serge Lutens Bois de Vanille and Parfums de Nicolai Vanille Intense. Atelier's vanilla shares the coolness of the other vanillas, but is airier, less radiant and more matte. It's the unlikely goldilocks between the contemporary woody vanilla and the classic eau de cologne and a successful refashioning of the edc genre.

Vanilla, lime and a lot of wood. One for those who don't like excessively sweet vanilla scents. Decent performance for a "Cologne Absolue".+1
