Considering I feel like I haven’t seen sunlight in months, I’ve been dying for a fragrance that’s bright, fresh and sunny – something to see me through to spring. I think I might have found the perfect answer to my problems in the form of Atelier Cologne’s Cedrat Envirant Cologne Absolue, a zesty bottle of goodness, that I’ve been reaching for on a daily basis.
Like all of the Atelier Colognes I’ve tried , Cedrat Enivrant is a real whoosh of citrus, and it’s one of those fragrances where people sidle up to you, tell you that you smell amazing, then beg to know what it is! Originally inspired by the rather glamorous French 75 cocktail (a blend of gin, champagne, lemon juice and sugar, it’s the perfume I’ve been reaching for on all these black mornings when I need a real burst of energy!
When first applied, Cedrat Enivrant is a whoosh of zesty greenness. Top notes of Moroccan cedrat, lime from Mexico, and bergamot from Calabria mingle with mint from China, basilic from Egypt, and juniper berries from Macedonia. It’s like the most refreshing of cocktails, and manages to smell wonderfully clean and fresh, without heading into fruity territory. Like most of the brand’s offerings, Cedrat Enivrant is a unisex fragrance, so it’s not too sweet or too overpowering. I absolutely adore the androgynous feel of the cologne, and unlike most of my other citrus-based perfumes, this one lasts all day! The base notes of tonka bean from Brazil, vetiver from Haiti, and elemi from Philippines really keep sillage close to the body, yet it lasts all day.
If you’re starting to think about presents for Valentines Day next month, you are onto a winner with this one!
