In 2010, cologne with sillage seemed like a contradiction in terms .For three hundred years, colognes were the '"step-children" of perfumery. All that changed when Creative Directors Sylvie Ganter Cervasel and her partner in life, business and love, Christophe Cervasel co-founded Atelier Cologne and created a new genre -the Cologne Absolue that had Eau de Parfum strength and longetivity. Fast-forward seven years and Atelier Cologne has become an internationally acclaimed "Maison de Parfum", with world-wide distribution and free-standing boutiques in such cities as NYC, Brooklyn, San Francisco, Hong Kong, London and of course, Paris.

In my opinion, one of the reasons for their early and ongoing success, was that they turned the idea of what cologne "is" upside down- using ingredients such as tea, vanilla, immortelle, mimosa and cacao. We wrote in 2010, “There is an Atelier Cologne for everyone in the line” (back then there were only five; there are 30 + now).

Which brings me to my favorite Atelier Cologne of the past few years; the new Café Tuberosa, composed by Senior Perfumer Jerome Epinette of Robertet, who has worked with Atelier Cologne from the beginning. Coffee, cream and chocolate in my cologne? Yes. Please! –Michelyn Camen, Editor in Chief
