Come on, I know you want to. Whether you've been thinking about upping your fall fragrance game or are looking for a new low-key place to snag something unique, look no further than Atelier Cologne. Any time I imagine oozing French charm, this especially elegant brand always comes to mind. It produces the crisp, long-lasting, unisex scents you've always dreamed of owning but haven't quite been able to find. (Yet, that is.)

According to the brand, Atelier Cologne fragrances combine the freshness of a cologne with the power of a perfume. Its pure perfume blend (unlike other plain old perfumes) contains a higher average concentration of citrus essential oil to help boost lasting power. The result? A collective of fabulously curated scents that linger far past lunchtime. Each scent contains a star ingredient (giving the perfume its name), pure perfume concentrate, and other high-quality raw materials for extra character. The brand does effortlessly cool so well that it only seemed appropriate for me to dig up its best sellers and what makes each a must for your collection.
