    Default Cédrat Enivrant by Atelier Cologne

    This sounds great, I'd love to hear from those who've sampled it.

    Now Smell This wrote a review of it today, where they said:

    There's not one thing to dislike about Cédrat Enivrant...but it doesn't thrill or offer anything new in the "citrus cologne" realm. I've yet to find an effervescent citrus perfume to match my beloved Guerlain Eau de Cologne Impériale; though it lasts only five minutes on skin, I'll stick with that for a fresh blast of citrus that is intoxicating. However, I've not written off Cédrat Enivrant entirely; I plan on buying a bar or two of the soap (Atelier Cologne soaps are heavily scented with luxurious lather).

    Own a large bottle of this. A great refreshing, cool citrus fragrance. A minty, lemony up front blast. Longevity not spectacular, but didn't expect it to last all day.

    A bit off topic but the soap looks enticing.

    I've been 'on the wagon' in February but will check this out soon. Thanks

    It's hard to be innovative with citruses imo.

    I have this and orange sanguine and in my opinion, these two are close siblings. Orange sanguine is obviously orange-centric, but its spin is a very authentic Orange Juice smell akin to fresh squeezed florida OJ. The sweet, juicy fruit, the bitter aromatic peel, all of it in a well rounded package. To me, Cedrat Envirant is the LIME/LEMON juice variation of orange sanguine. Similar characteristics, similar qualities, similar note structure, only being LIME-centric. I feel they are redundant enough, being from the same house, that you should choose one of the two based on which fruit you prefer and for me that is orange.

    Everyone keeps mentioning grapefruit in the reviews (even though the notes don't list it) so I'm happy to hear from someone that it smells more like lime.

    Its understandable since the citrus notes are more hesperidic and common to grapefruit rather than sweet citrus... plus people tend to just regurgitate what they read anyways. but there is no mistaking that "twangy" lime being both present and prominent in the composition.

    Sniffed it today. A very natural lemon/lime topnote. It's juicy and tart. I smell some mint too. Unfortunately, it veers into lemon cleaner territory after an hour or so, but I still like it.

    Sniffed it on strips a couple of times. I'm watching this one until the Spring starts to warm up, then I'm pulling the trigger.

    Agree that this is quite close in spirit to Orange Sanguine, although its execution may actually be better. It seems to have a bit more character. Orange Sanguine literally smells like orange juice spilled on your shirt - albeit a really delicious orange juice. Cedrat comes across as more of a proper cologne, with a bit more complexity.

    I'm a big fan of this house, and this one is on my short list, although I really need to sample it and give it a proper test wearing first.

    I, too, am a big fan of this house -- own 3 of their 200ml bottles plus some minis. And I was really, really looking forward to Cedrat Enivrant. Thought it would be a 100% safe blind-buy, since citrus is probably my favorite "genre." However, after sampling this twice on paper and skin, I'm afraid I'm amongst the dissenters. Absolutely killer top and mid notes. But like JiveHippo above, it gets too chemical-ly for me in the drydown. Honestly reminds me of CK Eternity...a frag that I'm no fan of.

    I have been looking for a realistic lime scent for ages now, the kind of smell you get when you sip from a cocktail glass that has a bit of lime peel stuck on the border, like a tequila sunrise or a mai tai (depending on who prepares it). Might this be "it"? I am also hopeful for the new Aqua Allegoria.

    Lloyd - have you smelled Selection Verte by Creed? I love that lime note. Same for Virgin Island Water.

    I like Selection Verte very much, but find it more green than limey, and I LOVE and own VIW, that one has a very nice and natural smelling lime note, but it's more of a combination of lime and coconut, which, while being succulent, is not the lime soliflore I am looking for...

    I wouldn't describe Cedrat Enivrant like that. Actually, the first thing that came to my mind from your description was the old reliable, Tommy Bahama Set Sail St. Barts. Very nice lime in the opening with tequila, salt and guava. Smells good enough to drink. And you can't beat the price. Great if you're looking for a tropical, warm-weather scent.

    The main thing I like about the St. Barts is the longevity. Most "limey" colognes have horrible longevity, but St. Barts really isn't too bad. It won't last all day, by any means, but it will get you through a few hours.

    I was able to get a sample of this, and enjoy it quite a bit/ It's a nice fragrance, and one of my favorites from this house. It's not groundbreaking, but I do like it enough to own a full bottle. It is great for this time of year.

    Saw this one in the for sale thread. Decided to pass after reading some reviews. I was hoping for more cedar given the name, however, it would seem from reading that it's more citrus than anything.

    Cedar in French is cčdre. Cédrat refers to the citron fruit.

    Four years of French didn't pay off for me! I thought citrus was agrumes (spelling might be off.)

    Cedrat is citron (lemon).
    Agrumes is citrus.

    Per Wiki, the citron is a fragrant citrus fruit, botanically classified as Citrus medica by both the Swingle and Tanaka systems.
    The Genus of Citron is Citrus.

    Where are OPomone and Marais?

    I'm a fan of Cedrat Enivrant, moreso than Orange Sanguine. However, not enough to purchase a full bottle of it yet. Definitely enjoy Vetiver Fatal a bit more.

    Thanks for the tip. I found Set Sail a little synthetic though, and not tangy but rather sweet.

    I am finally wearing this today for the 1st time.

    I like it, but I can't imagine wanting to own a bottle of this.

    The citrus note is very realistic and borders on a note slightly more tart and raspy than lemon and not as sweet as the orange note in Orange Sanguine. What I also notice is something that reminds me of soap...or more specifically shampoo. I can't help but struggle with this association.

    I think I'll keep my sample at my office desk and spray some on when I need to zing up my mood. But as far as a full blown fragrance for a full day's wearing I can think of about 10 different citrus scents that I would choose over this one.

    It started annoying me a tiny bit after about an hour on skin.

    I'm going to give it another full wearing before I give up on it. But for now I am a bit disappointed.

    I guess I'm just not a fan of Atelier Cologne. I tried Orange Sanguine, didn't like it. I tried Vetiver Fatal, liked it until the plum kicked in. Finally, I tried Cedrat Enivrant, and I really thought the composition was done well. However, it does give off a generic vibe.

    I wouldn't buy these fragrances, but if it they were gifted to me, I would wear them, Cedrat Enivrant especially.

    Nice and long lasting over more than 8 hours, have a 100 ml bottle.

    the realistic ripe and bursting with juice lemony opening is nice and so are the mid and base notes and overall very easy to wear and nice fragrance.

    Certainly a better choice for me than generic aquatics and other fleeting citrus frags in summer.

    But I will admit somedays the lemony opening can be a bit trying...can't wait for it to get over the top notes and move to the base, I do sometimes wish the opening notes were not so in-your-face
