I became a fan of Annick Goutal fragrances years ago when a cosmetics trainer, one of the best I have ever experienced, told us the story of Annick Goutal herself. Goutals fragrances all revolve around a moment in her life, that’s what makes them so special. Marriage, birth of children and other life moments give birth to each of her fragrances. I have been privileged to recently try Annick Goutal Eau du Ciel Eau de Toilette, and it’s quite special.
As delicate as the beating of their wings, the skin feels the freshness of the nature, the purity of the water, the heat of the sun that reappears.
A suspended divine and joyful moment that Annick Goutal captured, thanks to the lightness of linden tree, green and tender, the floral delicacy of the rosewood, the carnal wrapping of honey-sweet gold of beeswax, the powdery violet of the iris and the softness of the soothing white musk. Eau du Ciel, the fragrance of recovered serenity.
Why it’s a find:
While I usually prefer warm, woody fragrances, there are occasion when a lighter fragrance, one with layers of sophisticated notes becomes a favorite. That’s the case with Annick Goutal Eau du Ciel Eau de Toilette (or the Water of Heaven). It’s floral, light and powdery with slightly grassy top notes. Eau du Ciel dies down to a soft warm floral. The scent lasts for hours and leaves traces on your clothing which is always lovely. It’s clean and fresh and perfect for the spring season.
I would be remiss to ignore mentioning the signature Annick Goutal bottle which is so beautifully elegant that it deserves a place on my vanity. As opposed to a label on the bottle, a luxe label dangles from a hand-tied ribbon from the neck of the bottle. And then there is the box that houses the bottle that is almost a work of art itself.
