The Atelier des Fleurs collection by Chloé is a singular olfactory approach that breaks free from the conventional codes of perfumery, each scent is a pared-down expression of one flower. The collection’s 17 fragrances – from Cedrus to Violette – capture the essence of their respective flower; each one reveals itself fully, opening through the top notes, blossoming at the heart, taking root at the base, and leaving a unique trail in its wake. This year two new scents join the Atelier des Fleurs collection: Violette and Santalum, both are formulated with 100% natural-origin raw materials, natural alcohol, and water.
