He is French, an entrepreneur and a comic-book lover; she is Italian-French, a mother and a traveller, and a fan of interior design: Christophe Cervasel and Sylvie Ganter are two perfumers who decided to share their lifelong love and passion for eau de cologne. They met in 2006 in New York City, and three years later, they started the perfume maison that shot them to fame.
Atelier Cologne is the first fragrance brand that is all about cologne. It’s a lab in which 6 different collections of Absolues Colognes were created: Joie De Vivre, Chic Absolu, Avant Garde, Haute Couture, Carte Blanche and Bon Voyage, in which eau de cologne evolves into actual perfume. For their creations, Christophe and Sylvie worked with internationally renowned perfumers, such as Cécile Hua, Ralf Schwieger e Jérome Epinette, and all their products — which include candles, soaps and body lotions — are produced in France, to ensure the highest possible quality for their essences.
Love can create amazing things, especially when it is shared. This is why each fragrance is unique, and why their names bring adventures in enchanted gardens or in romantic cities to mind. The team’s attention to essences does not just extend to the creative process, but also to its presentation to customers, who are accompanied in their discovery of fragrances through the story that inspired the perfume’s birth. This is also how customers are helped in their purchase, by letting them tie the fragrance to a sequence of personal memories and emotions. All Atelier Cologne perfumes are paraben, GMO, sulfite and colorant-free, while their soaps and candles are all plant-based.
We love what is peculiar, and what is born of love strikes straight to the heart: this is one of the reasons why we love this atelier, which is filled with emotions and high quality. Vanilla, orange, bergamot, amber or mandarine glaciale are all scents that will strike your attention, and leave a lasting mark on your skin, as well as in your memory.
