I must apologise for my radio silence – I’ve been off for a few days recharging my batteries, and apparently my queued posts didn’t quite work out – oops! Anyhoo, I thought I we re-start strong with what has to be one of my favourite perfumes for the summer – Atelier Cologne’s Orange Sanguine.
Atelier Cologne were established in 2009 and are definitely one of my favourite brands to turn to when I’m looking for a fragrance which feels unique and is incredibly easy to wear. I’m completely in love with one of their newest concoctions – Orange Sanguine which is described as ‘scent of fresh oranges was diffusing in the yellow heat’ and it is just perfect if you’re looking for something to spritz on all summer long!
When it’s hot out, I typically opt for lighter orange blossom based fragrances, but since Orange Sanguine has arrived, I don’t think I’ve even looked at another scent! Packaged in an apothecary-esque bottle, Orange Sanguine feels perfect for wearing on long balmy afternoons. When I first apply, I get a big whiff of freshly peeled oranges, the citrus notes are so zesty and refreshing, and it smells incredibly clean and happy! As the perfume begins to dry down, the notes of grapefruit and blood orange intensify a little, giving a new depth to the citrus. I get around 4 hours of wear before I need to top up, so I’ve been keeping the bottle in my hand, as I usually re-apply whenever I want to feel refreshed. It’s definitely one of those perfumes that I apply, then spend the next 15 minutes sniffing my wrists like a crazy person!
Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine is priced at £90.00 and is available at Selfridges and here (US).
