Scents evoke memories. Hopefully we have all felt this or realized this at some point. Something takes you back to your childhood, or that vacation you took. Or transports you back to the seashore. Sweet smelling Clementine California is one such sunny citrus fragrance.
Atelier website says “This is the perfect moment to explore fruity and sweet scents from Italy, Turkey and Haiti. A wonderful blend of natural fragrances that will make your imagination travel towards exotic countries and a windless summer day.
With its sunny composition built around Clementine scents from Italy, Clémentine California created by Atelier Cologne is the ideal summer perfume but can also be a subtle reminder of warm days during winter. Sweet smelling notes of juniper berries from Turkey and Vetiver from Haiti also make this unisex fragrance a must for those who want to be the centre of olfactory attention. After all, there is nothing more sensual than a delicate summer scent in a room.”
Clementine California is packaged in a simple glass bottle. It is nothing fancy. The label on the bottle has the name of the fragrance. Customers can also pick a leather case for the 1oz bottle. That's a nice touch.
Notes include clementine, juniper berries, vetiver.
Atelier Cologne Clementine California smells really good. It is so hard to describe fragrance. It is so personal. What smells good to me might be dish wash to you. I find this perfume to be a great spring, summer time perfume. It is super fresh and clean scent. This fragrance is a uplifting, mood booster for me.
Top notes smell sweet and fresh, not too sweet though. Next I get the citrus and floral notes. This makes this perfume so fresh and crisp. I do not get the juniper berries, or may be I do and my nose doesn't recognize it. I get the Vetiver notes a couple of hours after I have sprayed the cologne. The vetiver is there, but very light.
I spray Clementine California in the morning and at the end of the day I still get a whiff of it. It lasts longer on clothes than on my skin. Overall it smells great and I have received many compliments while wearing it. I have this in my rotation for spring, summer days.
- Crisp, clean citrus with some floral notes
- Different sizes and sample sets provided by the brand
- Clementine California is a light cologne. I like light perfume. Also I spray on my skin and my clothes, so fragrance stays longer.
