    Default Atelier Cologne Sous le Toit De Paris

    I haven't really heard much about this fragrance probably due it being an exclusive for the house. Although, the notes sound very promising with it being a fragrance about violets and leather. It reminds me of Cuir Pleine Fleur which is violets, leather and mimosa and is an absolutely fantastic fragrance.

    What is your experience with this fragrance?

    Just ordered a 200ml bottle blind from their store in New York. Will give my thoughts when I receive it.

    I am sampling it right now. It is very violet-heavy, like the violet candy I used to eat as a child. It is balanced by a pretty pungent tart neroli, and the vetiver gives it kind of a bite. I like it so far, but have yet to wait for the drydown...

    Received my 200ml bottle this afternoon, but haven't tried it on yet. Looking forward to see what it's like on my skin. Am excited.

    I found it quite forgettable like the rest of the house, too safe, too weak (longevity wise) but at least they smell rather fine and 'natural'.

    Nice one! A very natural and green take on violet then leather. The violet and leather just goes together. Outstanding! This is a big improvement on the Geoffrey Beene Grey Flannel kind of violet. Fantastic! One of the best from Atelier Cologne!!

    I'm wearing this today, and wowowow. 'Til now, I hadn't noticed the playful sillage, which is where the violet flower comes out. It's as though I have a tin of violette pastilles in my desk. But it's not heavy or syrupy, just a waft of fresh Parma violet.
    I love the bitter orange in the opening. I hope this stays in their lineup!

    I just read this, from an article at a Fleure Bon:
    "In the heart (Schwieger) uses violet leaf but instead of using the actual extract of the violet flower, and its olfactory deadening ionones, he uses a great green geranium and vetiver together to create a violet accord."
    Well, damn. It worked.

    Sounds fantastic.

    Is the violet accord like the one in Violet Blonde by Tom Ford?

    Tried that so long ago on paper, and put the sample aside. From memory, I'd say no. Tom Ford's had a fruity quality and a denser feel. This is softer, airier.

    The a Fleur Bon reviewer compared it to Geo Trumper's Violet shaving soap (want to try that now!). It does seem a bit old fashioned, and very natural, which I like.

    I tried TF Violet Blonde again on paper (will wear the sample another day). I got a good hit of citrus rind/pink pepper that was so satisfying ... loved it. Looking forward to smelling the floral part of the violet note when I try the sample.

    To me, the idea behind the house is fragrances with the fresh blast of cologne but the staying power of EDT to EDP. When I first tried the fragrances, I applied them lightly for fear that I would be forced to live with a loud scent all day long and I wasn’t particularly impressed. Now, I apply the fragrances more amply and enjoy the citrus rush. When that dries down, the rest of the fragrance is more restrained but long-lasting and I enjoy the full character of the piece. Very different from the way I apply EDP’s. Think EDC that last much longer. This one is especially beautiful and balanced.
