Atelier Cologne :: Perfume Houses

Atelier Cologne packaging

Niche perfume house established by Sylvie Ganter and Christophe Cervasel in 2010. The company makes what they call “cologne absolue": fragrances inspired by the historic recipe of the original "Eau de Cologne" — a mixture of citrus and herbal ingredients — but blended in stronger concentrations (12-20%).

The company debuted with five fragrances: Trèfle Pur, Grand Néroli, Orange Sanguine, Bois Blonds and Oolang Infini. Atelier Cologne was acquired by L'Oreal in 2016.
