Sylvie Ganter often likens the story of how she and her husband Christophe Cervasel co-founded cologne brand Atelier Cologne together to that of a love story. When they first met in 2006 in New York, both were creating perfumes—he for designers and she for a cosmetic brand.
“Christophe and I have only worn ‘cologne’ type of scents our entire life,” she says, but she felt something was missing. “I found myself in permanent search of a cologne that would have different personalities and that would last on the skin.”
