Atelier Cologne opens its first Counter in Switzerland

Close your eyes and imagine yourself surrounded by an incredible smell, a scent of fresh oranges diffusing in the yellow heat. A symphony of their laughter and waves hitting the cliffs played in the air.

This is the exact sensation we had when we tried the Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue at the new Atelier Cologne Counter by Jelmoli Zürich.

And to you, our dear readers, there is only one thing that can possibly come to mind:  Oh my goodness!  This scent is simply incredible ! It is light, fresh, and zingy! It’s not overwhelming and it isn’t underwhelming either.  The smell is seriously addicting and we found ourselves going back to smell where we put it so many times! We were in awe. The balance of the fragrance notes in this perfume made us fall in love.

It has become the favourite of our DARLINGYOU TEEN Editor:

“This scent is my favourite. I’ve been a perfume lover for many years and this scent struck me. It smells much like orange at first but that fades within a few minutes and you’re left with this pleasant floral smell and at the end smells almost beachy. It reminds me of my childhood. I adore it. ”


Top notes

Blood orange from Italy, bitter orange from Spain, red mandarin from Italy.

Base notes

Tonka bean from Brazil, sandalwood from Indonesia, cedarwood from Texas


Now Zürich, the apple pot of Switzerland, is enjoying the French Maison de Parfum Atelier Cologne.

In December 2017, Jelmoli opened its first counter, which, true to the brand, is set up in the style of a studio: furniture in industrial design, worktable and engraving machine. A place designed for consultation and creativity, where every customer can take the time to discover and try out the unique fragrances.

Based in Paris, Atelier Cologne was founded by Sylvie Ganter and Christophe Crevasel in 2009 and has quickly become one of the leading manufacturers of luxurious fragrances. They have created a new olfactory family: the Cologne Absolue, which combines the freshness and elegance of citrus notes with the character and exceptional durability of an Eau de Parfum. The secret: the combination of the finest natural ingredients with a very high concentration of essential oils. Each fragrance captures the intense emotion of a precious moment. All Atelier Cologne products are intended for both women and men and can be found modified in soaps, shower gels, perfumed body milk and soon also in scented candles for the home. Atelier Cologne is the perfect place to create a personalized gift from the world of perfume. Each Cologne Absolue can be customized with a colored leather case and a personal imprint.

Perhaps you will even meet our team some of this days at their counter.

We simply love it!
