Atelier Cologne Clementine California Perfume Review

Atelier Cologne Clementine California

Atelier Cologne Clémentine California is perfume inspired by sunny Los Angeles. Los Angeles is one of those places that I love when I’m not there. I actually spend a lot of time thinking about moving there, fantasizing about year-round perfect weather, Art Deco architecture and endless sunshine. But, as soon as I’m there, I want to leave.

Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Bahiana
