Perfume: Atelier Cologne ‘Oud Saphir’

Perfume: Atelier Cologne 'Oud Saphir'

It’s not unusual for people to tell my boyfriend how good he smells. I know it sounds strange, but he really does. His taste in colognes is impeccable and he isn’t afraid to spend out on a good scent. His current favourite fragrance is Atelier Cologne Oud Saphir. Let me tell you a little more about it!

Atelier Cologne Oud Saphir is inspired by precious Oud. It is a celebration of the rare accord and it has been fittingly combined with other rare and beautiful essential oils from around the world.


Top notes: Bergamot from Calabria, Ambrette from India, Pink pepper from China

Heart notes: Violet leaves from Grasse, Jasmin from Egypt, Suede leather

Base notes: Dark oud accord, Birch wood from China, Vanilla from Madagascar

His Thoughts

My boyfriend loves Atelier Cologne Oud Saphir, he loves the rich, dark woody oud combined with the sweetness of the vanilla, jasmine and violet. It’s got a strong sweetness to it, which is really unusual for mans fragrance, but combined with the oud, pink pepper and bergamot, it still feels like a very masculine cologne. One spritz is all he needs for it to last all day and into the evening as it is nice a strong. As the fragrance develops during the day, it settles into a beautiful soft hum of sweet smokiness. It’s unlike any other cologne he has ever worn, it’s smokey and exotic, with a sweet sharp twist, yet somehow it’s not unisex. If your man likes rich, heavy, fabulous colognes, this is one he needs to try. There is no subtle aquatic notes in this fragrance, it’s punchy and fiery. He loves it and so do I.

Atelier Cologne Oud Saphir is available at Atelier Cologne, or via Selfridges and Harvey Nichols.
