    Default Observations on 3 of Annick Goutal's Fragrances

    Just received my treat of Annick Goutal in mail today. Here is what I think of them:

    Eau du Sud *= *It's almost exactly like Dior's Eau Sauvage. The difference is so minute that it's hard to tell the difference.

    Eau de Monsieur = Has a great resemblance to its other wonderful sibling Eau d'Hadrien during its initial development. However, the dry down phase is what diffrentiates the two from each other. Whereas Eau d'Hadrien stays fresh and very sharp throughout its development, Eau de Monsieur changes to a warmer citrus, sandalwood notes. I like it!

    Duel -- Now I know why everyone thinks of this as a tea scent. Longevity is a problem though. I sprayed my arm a total of six times, and after about 10 minutes, it's barely detectable on me -- stays very close to the skin.

    I love Dual, one of my favorite summer scents, but it does stay fairly close to the skin. That's OK with me. On my skin it lasts quite well, up to 5-6 hours at times. Eua de Monsieur has been on my wish list for a while, and you've given me no reason to move it down in the list.
    Have you tried Les Nuits d'Hadrien? Also very nice, adding a spiciness, body and richness to the original. And it lasts better than the original too.

    Les Nuits d'Hadrien is actually next on my list (along with the Mandragore).
    I've always wanted a stronger Eau d'Hadrien.. perhaps Les Nuits is it.

    Thanks!

    You want Eau D'Hadrien Absolu the EdP version.

    Wow... I didn't even know there was such a thing. Where do you find it?
