Annick Goutal

 

While Annick Goutal's first passion was as a musician, the pianist also worked as a model and found a calling in creating fragrances. Goutal's interest in the world of fragrances came when she was working with perfumers to create a new facial cream, but she found perfumes to be more interesting. Her first fragrance collection, Eau de Monsieur, was launched in 1980. She opened her first shop in Paris the same year. One of the design house's most popular fragrances, Eau d'Hadrien, was released in 1981 and blends fresh citrus notes in scents for both men and women. The release of Gardenia Passion in 1989 was also a hit for the design house, and popularity continued to grow in the United States as retailers such as Neiman Marcus and Saks picked up Goutal's fragrance lines. The design house released the floral Grand Armour, citrusy Eau du Sud, fruity Petite Cherie and delicate Ce Soir Ou Jamais in the late 1990s.

Following a long battle with cancer, Annick Goutal passed away in 1999. Her daughter Camille and fragrance collaborator Isabelle Doyen carried on Annick's legacy and are the in-house perfumers at the Annick Goutal House. The design house continues to focus on four core values: knowledge of French perfumery, emotion, excellence and the French art of living. In 2013, the Annick Goutal House redesigned its products into nine collections: the Feminine, the Masculine, the Butterfly Bottles, the Splendide, the Home, the Bath & Beauty, the Generous, the Soliflores and the Colognes.
