You are slumped on a Chesterfield sofa, cradling a tumbler of Bacardi in your hands. You have just binged your way through a whole packet of Jaffa Cakes. Life is good. How do you smell? Even better! Atelier Cologne’s Gold Leather summons up exactly this image, with some plum and woods thrown into the mix.
Christophe Cervasel and Sylvie Ganter, creators and founders of Atelier Cologne, met in New York in 2006 and realized that they shared a passion for classic Eau de Cologne. Together, they created the first fragrance house entirely dedicated to cologne—colognes so special that they are meant to be worn as pure perfumes. Since then, they have become darlings of the niche world, creating high quality, well-blended fragrances each centered around a core note (vetiver, vanilla, neroli, etc.).
