Atelier Rose Anonyme Cologne Absolue

 I love the Atelier fragrance line with Orange Sanguine being my favorite.  Jean Godfrey -June of Lucky Magazine has sang it's praises as well ( We're scent twins and yes I've tweeted her that.)  It's  a blood orange -citrus scent  and like all Atelier's fragrances, created to be like the centuries old tradition of eau de cologne but with far higher perfume concentrations  and therefore a much longer lasting scent. 

The line launched in 2010 and it recently became available at Sephora which will hopefully introduce it to many new fans.

This October there will be 2 new scents- Rose Anonyme and Vetiver Fatale . While the Rose is geared towards women and the Vetiver men, both, as with all in this line, are unisex .

As a rose fan it was easy for me to like Rose Anonyme. ( I haven't tried the Vetiver).  What makes this special is that it's a spicy , smoky rose. Rich and deep with oud, ginger spice  and rose right from the start,  Rose Anonyme  quiets down from that  first spray  and becomes  softer, but not soft.  Patchouli and benzoin then  take the stage  alongside the rose, which remains a constant throughout.  

This is an elegant fragrance  fit for a lady and come the cooler days  as fall arrives will be a welcome accompaniment to sweaters, scarves and crackling fires.
