The five fragrances from the Collection Orient were created as a result of trips taken by the founders of Atelier Cologne to Asia and the Middle East. The fragrances were inspired by the region's natural beauty, people and customs, and particularly the most precious raw materials. Encens Jinhae's inspiration came from the petals of the cherry blossom tree dancing in the wind. It features top notes of lemon, pink pepper and nutmeg; middle notes of Samarkand incense, cherry blossom and Turkish rose absolute; and base notes of patchouli, elemi and sandalwood. It is a cologne absolute.
Fragrantica: "I get wafts of fruity cherry blossom intermingled with delicate rosiness, then a burst of indistinguishable but gorgeous resins and sweet spices. These waves of loveliness are soft but so beautiful that I can't believe it! I can only imagine how stunning this would perform in the heat!"
Fragrantica: "As the name suggests, the impression of incense is at the core of Encens Jinhae, but it's a delicate incense, clean and light, not heavy or dirty. The creamy balsam, sweet florals, and fresh spices waft in the air, weightless and unified. It’s an atmospheric fragrance—the smell of a place, not a person."
