Atelier Cologne Collection Métal: Silver Iris

It's rare for me to fall in love with a brand instantly, but I'm pretty sure I'm besotted with Atelier Cologne. Founded by two lovers devoted to scents, Atelier Cologne is hands down the most luxurious and elegant fragrance company I've ever come across. And its new Metale collection - with glass bottles coated in silver and gold - doesn't disappoint.

Pictured above is my favourite scent of the two - Silver Iris. As with every Atelier Cologne fragrance, Silver Iris has its own story, and this one is about a woman who finds love. The story in full is:

'A woman of such intimidating beauty and sparkling vitality gained the adoration of everyone around her. However, no one knew what she had been through. With her wild spirit, she was tough, stronger than metal and never looked back. When she met him, for the first time in her life, she could stand still. She may have found the absolu man '

Then we have the fragrance itself, which is infused with some seriously stunning ingredients. Every Cologne Absolue fragrance blends citrus with precious raw materials, making them long-lasting and highly concentrated. Silver Iris is concentrated at 18% and has top notes of Italian tangerine, Chinese pink pepper and blackcurrant from Burgundy; heart notes of violet leaves, iris Pallida and mimosa; and base notes of Indonesian patchouli, white amber and Brazilian tonka bean. It smells absolutely incredible and I definitely prefer it over the Gold Leather fragrance, which is quite musky and is made to smell like Cognac.

However, I can't avoid the elephant in the room when it comes to pricing - it's expensive beyond belief! But I do think it is worth the money as Atelier Cologne uses rich, high-quality ingredients to create a powerful scent, and the founders' hearts are completely in it. It's £200 for a 200ml spray bottle of Silver Iris, with a 30ml travel size and personalised scarlet leather engraved case and cap.
