Clémentine California by Atelier Cologne is described as a walk on the beach under the Californian Sun. This is a Citrus Aromatic Cologne Absolu for both men and women. The fragrance was originally launched in 2016 and has been a bestseller since. The brand has given a summer makeover to this gorgeous fragrance and the limited edition bottle by Quentin Monge is now available to purchase from July 2020.
Each Cologne Absolue has an average oil concentration of 18%, unlike traditional Eau de Cologne, usually concentrated at 5% or less. This is why each Atelier Cologne creation can be described as “ Pure Perfume ”, the most prestigious family in the fragrance world.
This is the perfect moment to explore fruity and sweet scents from Italy, Turkey and Haiti. A wonderful blend of natural fragrances that will make your imagination travel towards exotic countries and a windless summer day.
With its sunny composition built around Clementine scents from Italy, Clémentine California created by Atelier Cologne is the ideal summer perfume but can also be a subtle reminder of warm days during winter. Sweet-smelling notes of juniper berries from Turkey and Vetiver from Haiti also make this unisex fragrance a must for those who want to be the center of olfactory attention. After all, there is nothing more sensual than a delicate summer scent in a room.
– Atelier Cologne
Clémentine California is a sunny composition built around Clementine from Italy: fruity, green, and sweet . This is a very popular fragrance from the brand.
Top Notes: Clementine from Italy
Middle Notes: Juniper Berries from Turkey
Base Notes: Vetiver from Haiti
I also smell some supporting notes like green notes from Basil, some spiciness from pepper, and some woody notes from sandalwood which together add a lovely twist to the composition.
The formula of this Cologne Absolue is made from 92% renewable natural origin ingredients of the highest quality. There is also a selection of unexpected notes, crafted scientifically, to achieve the signature creative balance of Maison de Parfum.
The fragrance has a fresh take on Grapefruit and Clementine. It has pretty great performance too. It is a great compliment-getter. Perfect for spring and summer-time.
I absolutely LOVE the design on the bottle. It takes you to the lovely sunny beaches of California and complements the fragrance so well.
The new Quentin Monge limited edition bottle can be purchased from FeelUnique or from Atelier Cologne Boutique, Covent Garden London. The gift set is only available from the Atelier Cologne Boutique which is now open with social distancing measures.
Until next time, Ashh xo
