    Question Any Annick Goutal fans? What are your favorites from the line?

    Of the Annick Goutals I've smelled, quite a few are very appealing to me.

    The ones I really like thus far are (in no particular order)

    Heure Exquise

    Le Chèvrefeuille

    Eau du Ciel

    Eau de Charlotte

    Eau de Camille


    Ce Soir ou Jamais

    Mandragore

    Folavril


    Do you have any favorites from the line?

    Le Chèvrefeuille: so pretty!

    Cannot abide Quel Amour, though -- red berry talc! (Gag!)

    These I like more/wear more often:

    Rose Absolue
    Des Lys
    La Violette
    Ce Soir Ou Jamais



    These less often:

    Quel Amour! (EdP-- more rose-y than the EdT))
    Eau d'Hadrien

    Oh yes. So many nice ones. In no particular order:
    Mandragore
    Ninfeo Mio
    Grand Amour
    Petite Cherie
    (need to try the edp to see if it's less fleeting)

    Still need to try so many.

    I found the florals enjoyable but not long lasting. The only bottle I own is the iris/leather/tea Annick Goutal Duel.

    I really like Sables, but it's such a sometime thing that I can't justify a bottle.

    Jasmin was a fun, light soliflore jasmine with a raisin-like undertone, but not enough oomph for me - I think when I want this "type" of jasmine, I'm sticking with Serge's Sarrasins.

    I adore these Encens Flamboyant, Myrrhe Ardente and Ambre Fétiche, especially in the heat (believe it or not). I have full bottles of all three and the body cream in Amber Fetiche. The other Annick Goutal's I really enjoy are: Huere Exquise and Eau d' Hadrien edt & edp. I love layering the Eau d'Hadrien with other fragrances, the latest Jo Malone's Black Vetyver Cafe.

    Some lovely choices listed above. I had forgotten about Rose Absolue. I also like that one. I've tried Songes, but only in vial form. I need to get a decant and spray it. I remember liking what I had tried, though.

    Thanks to all who participated.

    My favorites are Eau d'Hadrien (my first niche purchase, actually it was a blind buy), Le Chevrefeuille, Encens Flamboyant, Ambre Fetiche, and Myrrh Ardente. I had Gardenia Passion in the early 90s, and another perfume that had lots of vanilla, could it had been Passion? anyway, I did not re-purchase. Ah I also like Eau de Ciel, so soft and pretty. I have a small decant of Ninfeo Mio, I need to try it on a hot day.

    I probably like the names of the Annick Goutal scents better than I like most of the scents, themselves. I don't recall the actual name of this particular AG scent, which, in English, translates roughly into "my mother's handbag," but I have always wanted to sniff it. It sounds so nostalgic and wonderful.

    One of my favorite houses! It's probably easier for me to list ones I don't like, since I like so many. Here are the ones I own:

    Encens Flamboyant: Pure campfire in a bottle. This is my go-to fall/winter scent. Can't imagine cold weather without it.

    Eau de Charlotte: I've never been able to describe this one. Greens and blackberries. Very comforting. My first AG bottle.

    Heure Exquise: Rose chypre. I also have the body oil, which I like even more. Deep and rich.

    Un Matin d'Orage: Fizzy white flowers and apricot skin. A mistake; I'll probably end up swapping this one. Too thick for me.

    Mandragore: Herbal citrus. Disappears far too quickly on my skin.

    Les Nuits d'Hadrien: Herbal citrus chypre. Classic.

    It's celery. The note is meant to pick up a celery facet in one of the components of jasmine, cis-jasmone. I believe it was added to give a twist to the "mushroom" facet of gardenia. I quite like it, but in the shower gel rather than the edp. By the way, the shower gels are excellent and actually leave quite a long-lasting fragrance on skin.

    I own quite a lot of the Goutals: Songes is a favourite and quite a head-turner; Grand Amour and L'Heure exquise I find intensely beautiful; Encens Flambloyant I love to wear in the coldest winter; L'Eau du Sud is really a citrus chypre in the Eau Sauvage family; I love the gentle animalic tones and bright ambrette of Musc Nomade.
    I don't own Tubéreuse Absolue but it's an interesting fragrance that's almost all tuberose absolute.

    Eau D'Hadrien was one of the first scents I bought when I got into perfume. It was quite unusual for me. I got the EDP and the cypress was strong. I took some getting used to but now it's a favorite. So crisp and unique. Perfect to wear when eating as the lemon doesn't clash with food.
    Eau de Camille is another must have. Very fresh & green. Springtime perfection.
    I love the Vanille Exquise although it's D/C.
    Neroli is good if light with low sillage. (Not sure but this is probably D/C, too.)
    La Violette is just beautiful, too. It is a sweet violet. No complaints, there.
    I don't get on with roses much, so the other scents don't work for me.

    I have a great appreciation of Annick Goutal scents - I think the florals are very natural and authentic smelling, and own quite a few AG scents. At the moment, my favorites are Encens Flamboyant (I know, its not one of the florals, but its addictive!) and Folavril.

    My two favorites are:

    Ambre Fétiche
    Les Nuits d'Hadrien


    ... but this is also from the perspective of a man. Les Nuits d'Hadrien is probably the more feminine of the two. My girlfriend wears it occasionally and it smells great on her. I think it's probably one of the best offerings from Annick Goutal.

    I like Ambre Fétiche, Grand Amour, and L'Heure exquise, but I feel that Songes is the standout of the line, especially the body lotion + EDP combination.
