Atelier have boutiques around the world which I love visiting, my favourite in Covent Garden,
London. They are like workshops where you can experience the brand in your own personal

the Ateliers, you can also personalise your travel spray leather case. What I love most about
their scents is the freshness, it’s always subtle and it’s genuinely exciting picking the right
one for the person you love!
