Le Chèvrefeuille fragrance notes

Reviews of Le Chèvrefeuille

I find Annick Goutal perfumes one extreme or the other: they either work very well on my skin (Sables, Songes, Encens Flamboyant, Musc Nomade, L'Ile Au The, Ninfeo Mio, Duel) or not at all (Eau Du Ciel, Nuit Etoilee, Ambre Fetiche); however Le Chevrefeuille is somewhere between. One of my friends wears this perfume, and on her it is exactly like honeysuckle flowers: however on me it, strangely, smells very similar to Elizabeth Arden's Green Tea, though sweeter and a little more floral.

I'm going to very much enjoy wearing my sample vial, but this is not a perfume I would buy.

A nice honeysuckle scent; less sensational than Creed's masterpiece but well done. It has a green herbal slant, and also a floral tendency, more jasmine than narcissus. Not that typical for honeysuckle then, but very nice as fragrance.

Performance is all right, with adequate sillage and projection; I get four hours of longevity. Good in spring. 3.25/5

Genre: Floral

Annick Goutal’s “honeysuckle” is all sweetness and light: crisp citrus, lively greens, and the most delicate, transparent floral notes imaginable. It’s really too green, too tart, and too effervescent to smell much like honeysuckle blossoms, and what I get instead are tomato leaf, lemon, cardamom, a moist, crystalline green jasmine, perhaps some anise, and a touch of hay or narcissus. The resulting accord sets a bright summer morning mood that’s perfectly consistent with honeysuckle. It’s devastatingly pretty, but completely innocent, ebullient, and weightless.

In fact, Le Chèvrefeuille smells so bright and buoyant that it seems to have no base notes. Defying gravity in this manner exacts a price in longevity, and it should come as no surprise that Goutal’s Le Chèvrefeuille endures for no more than two hours on the skin. Thing is, this smiling scent is such pleasant company while it lasts that I really can’t bring myself to knock it. Instead I think I’ll just put on some more.

Perhaps my favourite fragrance of all time? (Top 3 anyway!) This scent is happiness, sunlight, femininity, warmth, freedom and a cool breeze all in one bottle. This scent is natural, fresh, slightly floral and slightly citrusy, and in no way synthetic. This scent is being outdoors on a beautiful summer morning. True to the trend of Annick Goutal fragrances, longevity is dismal. But with something so beautiful, does it really matter? Catch these golden butterflies as they flutter amongst plumes of flowering honeysuckle whenever you can.

Magnolia blossom, not honeysuckle

It’s a very good approximation of magnolia blossom, but not honeysuckle

i like this scent very much, it's light, sweet (but not too sweet), and very refreshing. unfortunately it lasts all of 30 seconds on my skin ... as is the case with many other goutal fragrances.
