Blu Atlas Atlantis Eau de Parfum Review (2022)

Sponsored Content 5 May 2022

With so many colognes out there, there are bound to be countless duds.

Fortunately, Blu Atlas Atlantis Eau de Parfum is a no-brainer. This soft, sexy, and aromatic fragrance will leave you smelling like the confident, posh man you are. Here is our Blu Atlas Atlantis Eau de Parfum review so you know exactly what you’re getting before you hit “add to cart.”

What is Blu Atlas?

Blu Atlas is a New York-based personal care brand for refined, elegant, and sophisticated men. Their products range from exfoliating scrubs and serums to cologne and aftershave.

Sourced from strictly natural and vegan ingredients, Blu Atlas products are safe and suitable for any skin and hair type. With hundreds of five-star reviews, you can feel confident in any purchase from Blu Atlas. Plus, there is a money-back guarantee, so what do you have to lose?

Don’t get us wrong—there are plenty of other men’s personal care brands out there. You can find men’s shampoo, face wash, aftershave, and body wash from practically any brand out there. However, they don’t pack the same punch as Blu Atlas does. Because Blu Atlas is solely dedicated to men’s personal care—you know they give great attention to detail, ingredients, packaging, and practical use.

Atlantis Eau de Parfum presentation

Let’s face it—a lot of cologne bottles are gaudy, cheap, or downright ugly. Most show their age with bottles that haven’t been changed since the mid-90s or are plastered in logos and writing that make it better suited to be displayed under the kitchen sink rather than a vanity or bathroom counter. That is not the case with Blu Atlas.

Blu Atlas Atlantis Eau de Parfum, along with all the brand’s other products, is displayed in sleek, minimal bottles and jars made out of glass and high-quality plastic. Their Atlantis Eau de Parfum is housed in a slender glass square bottle with the brand’s signature small minimal logo, cologne name, and copy listing the key notes.

This is a no-frills bottle that will look equally as good featured on your vanity, nightstand, or bathroom sink as it would in a high-end luxury store or five-star hotel. If you, or the man in your life, are particular about how something should be designed, then Blu Atlas Atlantis Eau de Parfum is the ideal cologne.

Initial thoughts 

Immediately after opening the bottle, we were treated to the pleasant aromatics of warm citrus woods. However, it wasn’t overpowering or overbearing. You could smell it around the bottle, but not the whole room, which means it was just the right amount of strength.

Upon applying it to the skin, it took on an intense subtle scent that absorbed easily into the skin without leaving behind an oily look or greasing feeling. Unlike most scents that go on strong and lose intensity throughout the day, Blu Atlas Atlantis Eau de Parfum went on subtly and kept its inviting aromatics all day.

Fragrance notes

If you are a fragrance aficionado or just someone who has spent a considerable amount of time researching your next cologne, then you’ve probably come across the aromatic ingredients of bergamot, clary sage, and patchouli. These ever-popular notes have found themselves featured in some of the most sought-after luxury colognes on the market, and luckily for you, also in Blu Atlas’s Atlantis Eau de Parfum.

Bergamot is a very common citrusy note hailing from the bergamot citrus tree native to southern Italy. It is as complex as it is subtle thanks to its hints of florals, bitters, and the sweet tartness of citrus.

Clary sage is a type of sage in the mint family that is native to the northern Mediterranean that has long been known for its medicinal properties but is nowadays grown almost exclusively for its use in perfumery. It is intense and savory, and it brings an earthy, sweet-tea-like aroma to any perfume or cologne it is included in.

Patchouli isn’t new to the fragrance world. This flowering plant native to southeast Asia was very popular during mid-century America but has now had a huge revival in recent years. It is a unique floral scent that has notes of warm woods and sweet florals.

Together, these three keynotes make up the powerful and long-lasting aromatics of Blu Atlas Atlantis Eau de Parfum. It is citrusy and woodsy in a way that is both modern as well as nostalgic. Perfect for the office, a night on the town, and for special dates with that special someone.

How long does it last?

Since Atlantis is an Eau de Parfum, it’s going to last a while. Eau de Parfums typically contain between 15-20% oil concentration, allowing them to last anywhere from four to seven hours. These highly-concentrated fragrances are designed to only stay on your skin and not transfer to others (or give them a headache).

Atlantis Eau de Parfum will last you all day. We’re not exaggerating. A couple of sprays of this cologne on your neck and wrist will last you from the morning until the evening. If the scent dissipates throughout the day or you just want to give yourself a bigger “kick” of fragrance, Atlantis is a fragrance you can layer, meaning you can continually spray more of the product and not smell overwhelming.

For the best application, we suggest cleansing your body and washing away any oils, dead skin, and buildup. This creates a fresh, clean surface where the fragrance can adequately absorb into your skin. Blu Atlas Body Wash is the perfect cleanser to get your skin squeaky clean.

Before applying the cologne to your skin, lather on a layer of lotion or moisturizing cream to create a somewhat adhesive barrier—sort of like a primer—for the cologne to cling to and last longer. Our top choice is Blu Atlas Moisturizing Cream, a soothing and nourishing cream that will leave your skin soft, supple, and cologne-ready.

Even if you don’t follow the steps above for an extra-long application, Atlantis Eau de Parfum is still guaranteed to last for hours. Everyone’s skin is different and Blu Atlas understands that, which is why they have crafted a long-lasting, intensive cologne that is suitable and adaptable for any body and skin type.

Where & when to wear it

Blu Atlas Atlantis Eau de Parfum is the perfect scent to wear for any occasion. If you want a subtle yet intriguing scent to use for daily wear, this is the perfect cologne for you. You can layer up and reapply throughout the day to bring out the fragrance notes and stay fresh.

Atlantis Eau de Parfum is also a wonderful cologne to give as a gift to any guy in your life. This cologne is perfect to spray on between classes, after the gym, before work, and on a date night. With so many options to choose from, you should settle on choosing Atlantis Eau de Parfum every single time.

Another reason we love this cologne is because its warm, universally-loved notes make it the best fragrance to wear around people. It’s not overpowering and you won’t smell like a seventh-grade boy in the gym locker room, suffocating everyone with your scent. Atlantis Eau de Parfum is a reliable cologne that you can wear any time and anywhere. How many other colognes can say that?

Final thoughts

We recommended Blu Atlas Atlantis Eau de Parfum to anyone in the market for a reliable, intoxicating, and sophisticated cologne. We firmly believe Atlantis Eau de Parfum is one the best-smelling fragrances of the year—if not all time. We know—a pretty bold claim, but we think this cologne more than earns the title.

The sleek, sexy bottle will look absolutely dashing sitting on top of your dresser or in your medicine cabinet, and the fragrance will soon become your holy grail cologne.

Overall, Atlantis Eau de Parfum is a safe bet for personal fragrance, gift ideas, and for first-time cologne users. As mentioned before, Blu Atlas has a money-back guarantee policy so in the (unlikely) event you do not like the cologne, you can return it for a refund.

If you can, buy a few extra bottles to keep in your bathroom, car, workplace, and anywhere else you frequent to give yourself a pick-me-up splash of fragrance. You never know where the day will take you, but Blu Atlas Atlantis Eau de Parfum always has your back.
