Atelier Cologne make decent fragrances in general. Vanille Insensee is excellent. It would make a wonderful signature scent actually.It has that slight mystery about it and it does not over project. It is the type of scent that becomes a part of you,your skin , your aura. Vanilla ; dry , lightly woody but delectable with a undercurrent of inoffensive incense, a smoothness to the entire composition and yet it captivates. Vanilla can be incredibly boring or too sweet . Vanille Insensee has it's own personality . It's minimalistic but stylish . Like someone spilt some very good quality vanilla in an Ikea store. ( It's a compliment ! ) Strong at first and intriguing with that dollop of what I perceive as clean incense, Vanille Insensee calms down and lasts and lasts.It lasted through a shower .The bottle is heavy ,clear and appealing. The price point is good imho .Give it a chance. It is a beautiful ,modern scent.

Orange Sanguine, which belongs to the collection Absolue Cologne, is a refreshing and energetic fragrance of fresh fruits laid on a sensual, oriental base. It contains notes of red orange, bitter orange, jasmine, geranium from South Africa, amber, tonka bean and sandalwood. This smells very fresh, sweet and like a real orange but that soon fades to a faint floral. MEH...not for me.If you like this, you should try:~Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange~Tocca Stella~

This one is just okay. Nothing special--just a sunny, inoffensive bergamot with a little floral. It is one of the quickest to disappear of all the Ateliers I've tried, which is saying something. I know there are supposed to be woodsy heart and base notes, but they are practically nonexistent on me. I don't need a scent that whacks me over the head for hours, but this is at the other end of the extreme.

My least favourite of all the Ateliers I've tried, and that's saying something given that I've said Clementine California smells like orange soda and cigarette ash on me. Thankfully this was just a travel size that was included in my Necessaire Azur set. It is sharp, almost vinegary, very green and leafy. There's a background of wood, which I think is what makes it so heavy on me. There's a note I really, really dislike in here. Not sure what it is but it's not playing nicely with my skin chemistry at all. I suspect it is the combo of bergamot and powdery iris. This one smells like pickled funeral flowers on me!

Both my Necessaire Azur and Perfume Wardrobe travel size sets have this in their collection, which I'm glad about, because I love it. I can tell from the other reviews that it seems highly dependent on one's personal body chemistry, but luckily it's really lovely on me right from the start! On first spray, I get a bright (but not sharp) lemon and blackcurrant that develops a hint of cedar and vetiver. It has more depth and a bit more staying power (though no more sillage) than some of their more linear citruses like Cedrat Enivrant or Pomelo Paradis. Just delightful.
