Whom You Know Kicks Off Our Coverage of Atelier Cologne and We Highly Recommend Orange Sanguine; It Is Among the Best Summer Perfumes in Manhattan

Imagine your most favorite trip to somewhere tropical: you are tanning on a yacht, and citrus breezes infiltrate your being.  That is what Orange Sanguine by Atelier Cologne is reminiscent of and you will absolutely love it.  Spritzing it on is a joy to the senses and they have been awakened by this new amazing brand-new to us, anyway.  Atelier Cologne is a brand of distinction and its products are among the very best.  We try many new perfumes but this line is just outstanding.  What is it derived from? 

Atelier: A workshop or studio, specifically of an artist, artisan, or designer. A place for the execution of handcrafts or to practice arts and leisure; a place where an artist creates his body of art.
Cologne: The original eau de cologne was created three hundred years ago by an Italian perfumer established in Cologne, Germany. His fresh blend of citrus oils was inspired by the memory of his homeland. It offered a revolutionary alternative to the heavy scents of the times and inspired a new way to wear personal fragrance.
Atelier Cologne: Perfume house crafting colognes of character. The master perfumers of Atelier Cologne blend unexpected and rare extracts with signature fresh citruses to create Colognes Absoluesconcentrated formulas with distinctive and long-lasting sillage. The first collection depicts five moments, five characters: Orange Sanguine, Grand Néroli, Bois Blonds, Trèfle Pur       and Oolang Infini.  Each scent captures treasured emotions and powerful memories.   We began with Orange Sanguine.

Orange Sanguine, a zesty and energizing burst of crushed ripe fruit, plays off sweet blood orange juice against bitter orange peel and sensual notes of geranium.
“It was the kind of moment you would want to revisit. Everyone was here, gathered on the terrace for breakfast, and the scent of fresh oranges was diffusing in the yellow heat.  A symphony of their laughter and waves hitting the cliffs played in the air.” 
Orange Sanguine by Atelier Cologne is highly recommended by Whom You Know and is one of our favorite fragrances for the summer.
