Atelier Cologne’s Cédrat Enivrant is a refreshing citrus fragrance that is said to be “a return to what Atelier Cologne has become known for and an homage to – Orange Sanguine“.
Cédrat Enivrant (which translates to “Intoxicating cédrat”) is inspired by the French 75 cocktail made from gin, Champagne, lemon juice, and sugar. It smells delicious as it sounds! The cédrat, also known as citron, Citrus medica and etrog, is a, thick skinned, leathery-rinded citrus fruit with an intense lemon aroma (think lemon on steroids).
“As the sun set on the beach, they were all together again. Full of emotions, they could not stop talking. Had it really been so long? They shared many memories and another round of French 75s with laughter and tears in their eyes. No one wanted the night to end. As the sun rose, it was a sparkling moment of absolue friendship.”
