    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.

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.

    I'm a newbie, and am not terribly familiar with the line, but I really like Mandragore. It seems so unusual.

    Welcome, Ronni. Mandragore is a great choice. I love how it blooms on my skin, and I find the longevity to be pretty good, too.

    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.

    Musc Nomade

    Ninfeo Mio
    Grand Amour
    Quel Amour!
    Eau du Fier

    And, of course, Hadrien in its original version. The new reformulation is atrocious.

    Well, there are a bunch I haven't tried, but I haven't been wowed by the ones I have tried. Two big exceptions: Vetiver and Eau du Sud. I LOVE those two!

    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.
