    Default Poll: favorite men's Annick Goutal fragrance

    I really think we need an Annick Goutal poll here. What is your number 1 favorite?

    I have only tried Vetiver and Eau d'Hadrien. Vetiver is a mess (I am not a fan of the iodine facet of this root), but EdH is a nice sharp citrus.

    Being a lover of the unusual and offbeat, I have a preference for Mandragore (not just the scent, but also because of the mystery and folklore of mandrake root). My second choice is Duel.

    Remember the first stanza of John Donne's poem "Song":
    Go and catch a falling star,
    Get with child a mandrake root,
    Tell me where all past years are,
    Or who cleft the Devil's foot,
    Teach me to hear mermaids singing,
    Or to keep off envy's stinging,
    And find
    What wind
    Serves to advance an honest mind.

    I struggled to find a Goutal scent to like for a while.

    Then, a couple months ago, I tested Eau d'Hadrien and completely 'got' it. I am not in the market for a new citrus scent yet, but if I can get my hands on some EdH cheap, I would love to give it some more full wearings. I expected it to be too light and ethereal (like Eau Savage or Citron Citron) but I was pleasantly surprised to find it out it had real depth.

    Additionally - last night I tried Eau de Fier for the first time (technically this is one of the woman's scents I think...) and it is strangely smoky with an almost burnt, tar prominent drydown. Fans of Burning Leaves by CBIHP or Tea (Series 1: Leaves) by Comme des Garcons should try this one!

    Mike,
    I saw Eau d'Hadrien and Mandragore 100ml bottles for $19.99 at Feline's Basement in NYC sometime last year. From what I heard, these two Hadriens show up pretty regularly at Feline's Basement.

    Maybe the basenotes system is protesting the number of recent polls.

    BTW" My favorite from this house is Eau d'Hadrien.

    My favorite houses are Guerlain and Goutal.
    Hadrien is AG's masterpiece, and while, the nights are OK, the days were made for love.
    Her Vetiver is the sea and only, the sea.
    Heure Exquise is the most complicated boudoir fragrance I know, especially when it's worn by a man.
    Sables is responsible for as many men's niche copies as Jicky.
    And Gardenia Passion is the best waxy white flower available.
    Shall I go on?

    i'm not very familiar with Annick Goutal stuff....but i JUST smelled a few scents at a shop when i was going to buy my Rive Gauche.

    Eau D'Hadrien is like lemon dishwashing soap...terrible IMO.

    Eau De Monsieur was TERRIBLE. like someone dumped curry powder on my arm...i had to wipe it off....

    Vetiver was OK, nothing special though...

    not too impressed with the 1st three scents i've tested by this house....

    Yes, I know this poll is for 'men's' Goutal, but I have to add my vote for the lady's Goutal, Gardenia Passion, I've tried several Goutal samples and really liked Songes, Heure Exquise as well as Eau de Hadrien, but Gardenia Passion is the best on me. I've just purchsed the edp, because I've almost used up the sample, I just have to have it there on my wrist to sniff for another 'hit'! Truly, I think I'm addicted to it

    Hard question, since I like lot of them.
    Hadrien Absolue , Duel and Sables remain my favorites

    All of Goutals Orientalistes line rock!
    The Ambre Fettiche is one of the best oriental Ambers I smelled, together with Parfum d´Empires Ambre Russe and Lutens Ambre Sultan ,which I still don´t own for some strange reason.

    I like the new Musc Nomade, but it doesn´t last on me, as I wished.

    Ohhh so many favorites my favorite perfume house

    Mandragore Pourpre - where is my wand? I am late for potion class..
    Eau d Sud - simply divine
    Nuit Etoillee - a walk in an orange grove and pine forest
    Ninfeo Mio - a spring air captured that smell like figs, vegetation, dirt, and a bit of grass
    Duel - tea and leather
    Eau D Monsieur - lemon verbena - chypre

    I am not a fan of eau d'hadrien though

    I don't know if it's officially a male perfume but Myrrh Ardente is far and away my favourite ... Although it is sadly discontinued now. It's a miraculously, rich mixture of incense and vanilla. My partner wears it but it's quite unisex IMO.
