"It was the kind of moment you would want to revisit. Everyone was here, gathered on the terrace for breakfast, and the scent of fresh oranges was diffusing in the yellow heat. A symphony of their laughter and waves hitting the cliffs played in the air."
Orange Sanguine is a fairly linear fragrance, although there is a slight warming from the amber woods and sandalwood after the initial burst of citrus. Sometimes consistency is good, especially when the opening notes are the ones that caused the warm fuzzies to begin with. So, the fact that Orange Sanguine stays essentially citrus from first spray to dry down is not a problem for me. Lasting power is a good 4-5 hours, and considering that citrus fragrances are notorious for their fleeting nature, not bad at all.
Atelier Colognes have a higher cologne absolue concentration which contributes to their longevity, and Orange Sanguine is concentrated at 15% and composed of:
- Top notes: blood orange, bitter orange
- Heart notes: jasmine, geranium from South Africa
- Base notes: amber woods, tonka beans, sandalwood
