Atelier d'Artiste by Nez a Nez
Patchouli, Vetiver, Raspberry.
Tobacco, Coffee Beans, Vanilla.
Atleier d'Artiste has an opening I enjoy very much. It's rich, substantial and morphs much too quickly into the vanilla fragrance it's destined to be. It seems to straddle gourmand and boozy oriental with the end result simply being a spicy vanilla with a twist and some pretty good presence. The description on Aedes site is a bit mind bending and amusing. Sometimes one can try too hard to set something in a certain light. I read it, smiled and then decided that we shall see just how esoteric Atelier d'Artiste really is.
Atelier d'Artiste doesn't wast much time in transitioning to a vanilla dominant scent with spice and a different take on tobacco. This is more of a background tabac with a mild, smoky vibe. It assists the vanilla in becoming diffusive while giving it that little something extra.
I believe this is marketed masculine, but anyone can wear this fragrance. If anything, I find it leaning a bit feminine, but that's just my opinion. Sillage is very good and longevity is 6 hours plus on me. Atelier d'Artiste most certainly warrants a sample wear, but one must have a proclivity for vanilla in order for it to be time well spent.
Thumbs up from Aromi for Nez a Nez and its release of Atelier d'Artiste.
