The only Atelier related game on PS2 I played was Mana Khemia 1, I'm just mentioning the PS3 ones.
Escha and Logy's Alchemy System instantly became my favorite when I figured it out lol. Manipulating the element points is surprisingly fun! though Totori's Alchemy System was good too (It was the first game that made me really try to understand the Alchemy System).
I heard some don't like Escha and Logy's Alchemy System, the heck?

Well, it's more an Arland vs Dusk systems I guess.
If I had to choose... I want a mix of every system! :p
I think the Totori and co. ones needed more preparation, choosing good ingredients, with good traits and quality. All that part is almost gone from the new ones.
However once preparations are done the dusk ones are definitely more fun. You can play with the ingredient order and skills, and when you manage to get what you want by some miracle combination it's awesome.
Still I'll go with the Arland ones. It was more challenging all the way through, while in the dusk one you can make "normal" items without a care in the world and I end up playing with skill and ingredients just cause I can, not cause I need to. Moreover, it's SLOW for banal things, and it ends up being a little annoying for low tier items.
Still, it's really hard to choose one over the other.
I guess I would love the Arland ingredient/gathering system with a more challenging Dusk synth. with some upgrades. Maybe Shari will have those upgrades?
