Topic: Help please, Annick Goutal

Hello all ,

I am new today as a member, but have been reading for ages. have a bottle of Annick Goutal that my sister gifted to me, but it has lost its label and I would like another bottle of it how do I diagnose which it is please.

On the base it just says ANNICK GOUTAL Eau de Parfum e50ml 1.7floz

EMB27003 made in france then in black writing 929064.

I would say the perfume is very rose and floral and even like a apple smell similar to DKNY green delicious it is a very strong scent not disimilair to Turkish delight.

There is no shops near me that sell Annick Goutal so can not take it to them to ask, and called Liberties in London today but got no reply from the perfume counter, plus my sister cannot remember which it is.

The ribbon on the bottle is a slim gold foil like bow.. but no name tag :( the perfume is a darkish yellow shade ..

any help so appreciated I want a new one but do not want to buy the wrong perfume as it is a bit pricey

Thanks in advance

Polly  glad

It could be either one of these...

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1609.jpg Annick Goutal Songes - the liquid is much darker in real life than is shown in the picture.

Re: Help please, Annick Goutal

Thanks the Passion looks too dark, the bow is wrong on the Songes and the rose is much paler than mine :(

I thought it may be rose absolue as it smells so rosie.

thanks for the reply glad

It could also be http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.753.jpg  Annick Goutal Ce Soir Ou Jamais?

Maybe post a picture so we can have a better look.

Re: Help please, Annick Goutal

My first thought from your Turkish Delight description was

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.2390.jpg  Annick Goutal Rose Absolue



The edp of this has a thin gold ribbon.

The newer eau parfumée version has a deep pink ribbon (avoid it-- it's very light compared to the edp.)



http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.753.jpg Annick Goutal Ce Soir Ou Jamais is boozier, jammy and has a definite pear note.

Re: Help please, Annick Goutal

Also I just checked both my bottles and both scents have EMB27003 on the bottle's bottom, so that won't help you.

Ce Soir Ou Jamais is yellower than Rose Absolue.

Re: Help please, Annick Goutal

If it's like Turkish delight, like a sweet heavy rose, it has to be Ce soir ou jamais.

I tested Rose Absolute and that one is quite soapy, not sweet.

If it looks like a fruity rose, it could be Rose Splendide.

Re: Help please, Annick Goutal

Thanks for replies, having trouble loading photo. I was just wondering why do Annick Goutal  not put the fragrance name on the base as the little paper name tag is easily detached well it is in my case lol  :(

Re: Help please, Annick Goutal

PM'ed you, nicesmells...

Also: Rose Splendide has a pink ribbon, so probably not that one.

Rose Absolue edp came in a gold lamé gathered pouch (elasticized at the neck of the bottle-- if you got your bottle new, you would have gotten the pouch.

You might want to consider getting a few official samples to help you be sure of the fragrance.  I've bought samples from Alex at this site and been satisfied:

It's remarkable how our perceptions differ...I used to own Quel Amour (didn't like it much; sold it)-- definitely a rose, but I never got an apple smell from it.  Interesting, sophi!

Re: Help please, Annick Goutal

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1190.jpg Annick Goutal Grand Amour  I had this one years ago, and is very rose as well.

Oh,dear!Quel Amour is such a sweet fruity rose...and we agree on that!

I could not miss saying that it reminded me of that one :http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.499.jpg Donna Karan DKNY Red Delicious ...it's not ONLY the apple in Quel Amour...it's rose at top and then a sour fruity punch...it's just delicious glad

Re: Help please, Annick Goutal

Glad you found out which one it is!



http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.753.jpg Annick Goutal Ce Soir Ou Jamais

was the very first Goutal I loved and bought, but after that I got 4 more! 

The company's more recent offerings are less to my taste, unfortunately.
