Atelier Cologne ‘Rose Anonyme’

“She turned the dial until the safe opened, revealing the diamond. She had stolen jewels before, but none compared with this one. She left a single rose and the scent of her perfume in its place for him to find. In a moment she’d be halfway around the world and he would be in pursuit. The chase began again…”

Atelier Cologne 'Rose Anonyme' perfume fragrance

In Review…

I’m always on the hunt for new rose-based fragrances, but recently, I haven’t found anything which has really blown me away…. That is, until I stumbled upon Rose Anonyme by Atelier Cologne. I don’t know what it is about this one, but I just can’t get enough of it! It’s rose-y enough to make me swoon, yet it’s exciting enough to keep me guessing. It’s got a sharpness and a smokiness which makes me think of oud and saffron, but it’s also got a softness to it, like rich velvet, soft silk and traditional Turkish Delight treats. There is a hint of spice with the ginger and almost a soapy-note, or maybe it’s slightly aldehydic, but it works. As for the bergamot, it has a real Earl Grey tea quality to it, less citrus, instead more smoky and comforting. What can I say, I love this perfume and thanks to the generous 200ml bottle, I can spritz as liberally as I want. I have a feeling this might be a bit of a marmite fragrance, but if you are like me and you love roses, ouds, ambers and saffron, then I urge you to try this one, because it’s so good; Addictive, modern & romantic!

Atelier Cologne ‘Rose Anonyme’ can be bought from Atelier Cologne, FeelUnique, John Lewis and Nordstrom, for my American friends!
