AN ARTIST GUIDED BY HER PASSION
A fascinating personality, a visionary woman with an atypical path: one of an artist who never stopped listening to her instinct and passion. Pianist, then fashion model, Annick Goutal discovered she had a guenine gift for creating perfumes and a vocation: she would become a perfumer.
A generous and extremely elegant woman and a universe that looks like herself: refined, feminine and modern.
BIRTH OF PERFUMERY HOUSE
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.
THE PASSION OF BEAUTIFUL RAW MATERIALS
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.
Out of a desire for authenticity, the bottles, products and packaging are made exclusively in France by expert craftsmen, resulting in an exceptionnal finesse in its detail. The finishing decorative touches are almost all done by hand, each one conveying a memory in the creator’s life. As Annick Goutal liked to point out “luxury is in the details”. Perfumery know-how combined with a retro-chic style reflecting the unique, timeless world of Annick Goutal.
