Hey beauties, as you have noticed I haven't posted in a long while, I was extremely busy with a couple of projects I have started working on, which I am very excited about and will soon share with you! Hopefully now I can get back into regular blogging, which I've been missing. So let's go!

Last week I went to a wonderful press event which represented the brand itself and their new launch of the Collection Métal. This was the first time I was introduced to Atelier Cologne fragrances. If you've been read my blog for a while you'll know I have a real soft spot for fragrances, particularly for decadent and opulent fragrances. It was a privilege to meet the founders of Atelier Cologne, Sylvie Ganter and Christophe Cervasela who fell in love and decided to create this brand together. 

The Story of this brand is beautiful because love and fragrance are dependent on one another, there can't be love without fragrance and there can't be fragrance without love. What also makes the brand special is that they are the first fragrance house that is dedicated purely to the legendary perfumery classic: the cologne! Cologne is a fragrance of the previous generations, known as very pungent and almost over-powering, however Sylvie and Christophe managed to keep the essence of the classic and make it modern.

It was a very hot evening, right in the heart of London, Liberty third floor, the fans were on full... As soon as they begun to spray the fragrances onto the paper sticks, the cologne would expand into the space and hit you immediately as the fans blew it into your direction. Every time a new fragrance was introduced it was something out of Alice in Wonderland, a modern version of magic. 

Atelier Cologne fragrances are composed with luxurious notes, which is what makes your mind devour the fragrance and immediately you find yourself on a journey trying to discover what notes are sweeping you off your feet. It is an amazing experience, something very very special indeed. All of the fragrances are uni-sex, which I am a total sucker for I love the idea of sharing a fragrances with your beloved. 

I must admit there were so many scents that were beautiful but the two that stood out to me most are: Atelier Cologne Rose Anonyme Cologne Absolute, which is from their first collection, and it is a stunning concoction of precious raw materials, a very mesmerising and incredibly sensual fragrance. And the other one that I also fell in love with and was super happy to open my goodie bag when I got back home and find the mini bottle of it, is - Gold Leather! This fragrance evoked a very strong reaction when it was sprayed at the event. Once it hit you, we just started giggling, a slightly light-headed uplifting almost drunk sensation!

These are the notes: Top notes - bitter orange from Saville, Indian saffron, Jamaican rum; Heart notes - plum, davana from India, eucalyptus from California; Base notes - fraction of gaiae wood from India, fraction of cedarwood from Texas, leather & oud accord. The way the notes are put together you can't instantly figure out what they are, it almost becomes a mind game. This fragrance comes in a real gold flask-like bottle and in two sizes [100ml & 200 ml]. And the mini bottle also has a leather pouch, very luxurious! It's a fantastic gift idea as you can also get the leather pouch personalised by getting it engraved. 

Gold Leather is one of the two fragrances from the new Collection Métal launch in September 2013! The other fragrance from this collection is the Silver Iris coming in a silver flask-like bottle. The notes are: Top notes - tangerine from Italy, pink pepper from China, blackcurrant from Burgundy; Heart notes - violet leaves from Grasse, iris Pallida from Tuscany, mimosa from Grasse; Base notes - patchouli from Indonesia, white amber, tonka bean from Brazil. The two fragrances come in two sizes 100 ml at £130 and 200 ml at £200, however with the large bottle you also get that mini travel size bottle and leather pouch for free. There's also soap and candle in this collection to match the Gold Leather and Silver Iris colognes.
