I am particularly biased to Annick Goutal scents and there is not one that I have ever disliked ever since I had the chance to discover them, whether its the iconic Eau D'hadrien from 1980s which was a tribute to Annick's deep passion for the Italian countryside and the Tuscan region, or the more recent 1001 Ouds from 2016, that brings to life an image of Arabic princess from the 1001 Nights, covered with gold and gemstones, as we go on an enchanting journey to the Middle East.
So its no surprise that I was eagerly awaiting the release of this scent from the latest pillar collection from the house to launch in 2017, that pays homage to the brand's origins in the mesmerising city of love Paris where it was first conceived and brought to life.
When we think of Paris, and I mean the millennial generation, the idea of a city comes to mind one that is rendered in rich hues of great history and culture, robust monuments and iconic facades, eras of renaissance, goth, post-modernist and hipster all at the same time, an electric-eclectic, yet romantic, subliminal yet edgy and with an unmistakable attitude that only a Parisienne can carry...
Tenue de Soirée, the first one of this collection paid tribute to the 'hour of metamorphosis-time spent getting ready for an enchanting evening ahead that holds promise of love and excitement...'
Nuit et Confidences however immerses us deep in that very evening of encounters with film-makers, poets, writers and artists, seduction through words and play of charming gestures that one can only experience in the city of Paris.
Effervescent opening that is reminiscent of sparkling crystals and champagne bubbles, a sensual heart where Vanilla and white flowers meet to create a sensual combination of high-drama and sophistication. It possesses a tenacious quality, that feels like velvet, accentuates all the right highs and deepens all the right lows. The vanilla is of the more boozy-liquer variety than of the sweet-dessert type. White musk really enlivens the overall mid-night fantasy vibe. There is subtle smokiness that evokes mystery, and there radiance that adds a sort of rhythm to the effect of this scent, as you wear it through the night.
