Perfume Became her New Music
Pianist, then fashion model, Annick Goutal discovered she had a guenine gift for creating perfumes and a vocation: she would become a perfumer.
In 1981, Annick opened her first shop Rue de Bellechasse, Paris. An enchanting place with an intimate, sophisticated atmosphere that marked the birth of the Annick Goutal House. In her workshop, she pursued her love for beautiful raw materials. Annick soon made a name for herself thanks to the originality of her creations and built her own personal perfumery, which quickly attracted connoisseurs.
Perfume became her new music. Little by little, she signed her first creations, Eau d’Hadrien, Petite Chérie, presaging the dawn of a unique olfactory adventure. As time went on, the Annick Goutal House created a new chapter in the French Perfumery and developed throughout the world.
At Annick Goutal excellence is not only at the heart of the creative process, it is also a philosophy in itself. Annick Goutal olfactory creations contain the rarest and noblest essences, almost all of natural origin, such as Sicilian lemon, Damascus rose, Italian iris and tuberose from Grasse. Raw materials chosen with the greatest care and extreme precision, to achieve, note after note, the perfect harmony.
Annick Goutal bequeathed her love of perfume to her daughter Camille and her lifelong colleague Isabelle Doyen, who since then have become the House’s perfumers and the creators of the new products. Camille and Isabelle share the same love of fine materials, and work together in an atmosphere where the winds blow free, with an unique olfactive signature.
