Lemon and black current jump around wildly, wafting about you joyfully at the start (Atelier Cologne 2015). Perhaps it’s the cedar that tethers them down and eventually mixes them with a dash of sublime apricot, earthy papyrus and beautiful vetiver and amber. Cèdre Atlas is expansive, a little romantic, and very clean and contemporary. It feels cheerful to wear. Of course, as with many Atelier Cologne fragrances the longevity is a problem but I believe for some of them it’s definitely worth it to just wear and reapply when needed.
Top notes: lemon, black currant and bergamot. Middle notes: apricot, jasmine and cedar. Base notes: vetiver, papyrus and amber.
