I find a scent to be something very personal.
It should sit against your skin like a lover whispering in your ear NOT scream out announcing your presence when you walk into a room.
It should feel like a little secret that only those that draw in close get to share and the parfum maison’s at Atelier Cologne have mastered this.
Atelier Cologne, the elegant French niche cologne brand where every scent tells a story recently launched the compelling new Collection Metal at Neiman Marcus featuring two fragrances that when paired create something beyond scent-ual.
Silver Iris for Her. Silver Iris opens with the fruity note Tangerine, mixed with Chinese Pink Pepper. Next, heart notes of Violet Leaves, Iris and Mimosa and Finally, the cologne settles with base notes of White Amber, Tonka and Patchouli.
“A woman of such intimidating beauty and sparkling vitality gained the adoration of everyone around her. However, no one knew what she had been through. With her wild spirit, she was tough, stronger than metal, and never looked back. When she met him, for the first time in her life, she could stand still. She may have found the absolu man.”
Gold Leather for Him. Gold Leather opens with a blend of bitter Orange, Saffron and Jamaican Rum with heart notes of Plum, Davana and Eucalyptus. The fragrance settles with the woody base notes of Gaiac Wood and Cedarwood, entwined with notes of leather and oud accord.
“A man of such great power and charisma could have anything he asked. Despite it all, he could not have the only thing he really wanted. For the first time in his life, he had found the absolue woman and he was a better man for it. He would not let her go. Anything but that. He would trade all the gold in the world to be with her.”
Sometimes when two bodies meet the result can be something magical!
The two fragrances on their own are outstanding but when combined create an experience that will put a smile on your face throughout the day.
This was a happy accident I stumbled upon. I had spritzed myself with Silver Iris and my husband had splashed on his Gold Leather, we embraced and kiss kiss hug hug we went our separate ways to work.
About an hour later I had this happy, warm, cuddly feeling at work.
Why did I feel so comforted? Was it the chocolate I just nabbed from the craft service table? Possibly…but no I had more guilt than happiness over that.
I lifted my wrist, took a sniff and realized it was my cologne. It had settled into a warm woodsy blend of the two of us!
Better than wearing his shirt or spritzing his pillow with my fragrance- it was pure joy.
