Atelier Cologne

The French artisanal perfumery inspired by nature



Atelier Cologne, founded by Sylvie Ganter and Christopher Cervasel in 2009, is a French artisanal and natural perfumery. As part of L’Oréal since 2016, the brand has been inspired by the ever-changing nature of our souls, emotions and the poetry of life.

From its genesis, the brand dreamed to create a perfumery for self-expression and mood uplift rather than a perfumery to seduce or impress.
Atelier Cologne creations represent an invitation to embark on a spiritual and emotional journey through scent to reveal one’s unique personality.

"A key that unlocks emotional and sensorial dimensions
to spread creativity and reveal one's truest self, from nature
to reveal your inner nature."

With its core rooted deeply in nature, craftsmanship and artistry, Atelier Cologne creates Art from Nature.

The Creative Perfume Director, Mathilde Venot, is leading today the creation of Atelier Cologne's collections of scented poetry, encapsulating emotions in olfactive poems inspired by nature.

Masters of slow crafting

Atelier Cologne Paris creations, developed in Grasse, follow a unique slow crafting principle, articulated on 3 pillars.

A time to source

Seeking noble ingredients coming from rich terroirs.

From endemic species to renowned terroirs, our sourcing is highly demanding. We are committed to respect the rhythm of nature, and select only high-quality harvests, providing rich olfactive facets to our perfumes.

Mindful by Nature

A conscious craftsmanship inspired by the rhythm of nature.

Atelier Cologne creations favor ingredients of natural origin. They are blended with 100% natural origin denaturated alcohol with no dye, no synthetic stabilizers and conservatives.

All man-created ingredients are used with restraint, either to preserve nature when a resource suffers from depletion or to reveal and enhance the beauty of natural ingredients.

The majority come from sustainable sources with no risk of resource depletion. We favor upcycling - to preserve the most fragile resources- and the recycling of scraps from other industries.

Refillability - Atelier Cologne 30 ml sizes can be refilled with larger formats.

Human well-being – We favor branches that guarantee reliable revenues to all the stakeholders.
