Matching a perfume to a person is not the easiest thing. In case you are not very familiar with the individual, the result could be a mismatch. Also, being the wrong person in the wrong place is not something you take easy. Annick Goutal was one the first women that got implicated in the field of perfumery, in a period in which this domain was for men only. Even though she studied piano in her childhood and was planning to become a model (had achieved recognition during her short work as a model, yet founded the job rather unsatisfying), she decided to be involved in perfumery, after attending a convention of perfume makers in Grass, France in 1980. Soon after that, she founded her own house, and that very year, her first creation was born, Eau de Monsieur, a unisex fragrance.
Eau d’Hadrien is the second fragrance by Annick Goutal Pefumery House, launched in 1981, also a unisex citrus aromatic fragrance, which was developed by Annick Goutal herself and perfumer Francis Camail. Eau d’Hadrien was created in Italy and according to the description on the official website “The fragrance is an expression of Annick Goutal’s great love for the South. It also owes its inspiration to Marguerite Yourcenar’s novel ‘Memoires of Hadrien’ a brilliant literary interpretation of the life of the emperor”.
The accords featured in Eau d’Hadrien are Sicilian lemon, grapefruit, citron, green mandarine, cypress, aldehyde notes and ylang-ylang. For presentation, the creator imagined a bottle that evokes handmade art, a thing that is also transmitted through the perfume’s label, that look as if someone took the time to draw it.
With Eau d’Hadrien you could experience a new sensation: a visit to a citrus orchard, in a clear summer day. I am sure you are going to love this sensation.
