Behind every Atelier Cologne perfume, there’s a complex narrative, and the new ‘Jasmin Angélique’ is no exception. In this case, it’s all about a mysterious path to a secret garden, where two lovers meet surrounded by jasmine in bloom. Egyptian jasmine is teamed with lemon, Sichuan pepper and Angelique from Siberia, which has a cool, juniper-like aspect that may have you drawing comparisons with a tall G&T (perhaps the aforementioned lovers were in need of a little light refreshment). In the base, Brazilian tonka bean and Somalian incense have a lasting smoothness.
The range includes a treatment line of soap, shower gel and moisturising body lotion, a scented candle and fragrant cologne, all wrapped up in Paris label Atelier Cologne's stylish packaging. The blue bottles of the body lotion and body and hair shower gel chime with the brand's Venetian blue storefronts, with bold emerald labels plus signature aubergine leather bands wrapped around soaps. Atelier Cologne even offers personalised names, initials or messages on some packaging, part of the luxury trend encouraging customisation.
