A former classical pianist, Annick Goutal left the world of music when she got the opportunity to become a model. Her naturally elegant looks kept her in-demand, but her career switched directions yet again when she met a talented perfumer from the village of Grasse. Goutal discovered that she had a talent for crafting fragrances and opened her first Parisian boutique in 1980. Inspired by her family, her travels, and other personal experiences, Goutal’s lovely perfumes were an instant hit with the French elite. After Goutal tragically passed away in 1999, her daughter Camille and longtime business partner Isabelle Doyen took over the company. Now, Annick’s original fragrances live side by side with irresistible new creations.
Fragrances that capture an unforgettable mood, memory, or state of mind. From bright citrus scents to amber-laced florals, Annick Goutal’s compositions are singular and timeless. Each is made with only the finest essential oils and natural ingredients, which makes them extra long-lasting.
At the Annick Goutal Perfume Workshop in Paris, you can sniff the full range of the brand’s scents in the order of their creation.
Goutal created Petite Cherie for her daughter Camille: it’s a youthful mix of pear and floral notes that reflects a mother’s love. If you’re searching for something more citrusy, spritz on Eau d’Hadrien, which is inspired by a trip to Italy.
