A spot for Atelier Cologne Iris Rebelle.
Last month, I walked into my local Sephora, smelled Atelier Cologne’s latest, Iris Rebelle, and had a travel spray packaged and paid for within about 5 minutes. Must have been fantastic stuff, you say? Well, it’s decent, but I wouldn’t go so far as fantastic. If I’d had a sample at home and spent some time with it, it wouldn’t even have made my buy list — which, by the way, is a looooong list. There are an awful lot of perfumes I’d much rather own than Iris Rebelle. So why did I buy it…
Fantastic apothecary-style packaging on Atelier Cologne's new series of candles, although you'll need to have long matches on hand (and good luck if your wick goes off center). Bois Montmartre, Oud Jumeirah, Rose London, Orange Positano, Cédrat Venice, Tobacco Texas, The Séoul, Bergamote Shanghai and Vanille Nolita are $75 each for 210g at Neiman Marcus.
“He had received a mysterious invitation to Venice just a few days after that unforgettable night. He was wondering what this was all about, then he recognized Café Tuberosa. There she was, staring at him. Suddenly it was clear. In a moment they would have the chance to start over again.”
Unforgettable, but in a good way? Staring at him…why not gazing or something less intense? Café Tuberosa: stalker? Ex? Watch out! All those Venice canals are perfect for drowning.
Atelier Cologne Café Tuberosa1 is a new fragrance in the brand’s Avant Garde collection.
Tuberose seems to be overtaking rose as the fleur du jour in perfumery…
