Luxury French perfume house, Annick Goutal, first captured my heart in 2017 with the fragrance I reviewed, Tenue de Soirée. Following the success of this scent, Goutal have brought to life a new line of precious and carnal fragrances, starting with their latest release, Nuit et Confidences.
While Tenue de Soirée conjured up images of preparing for a promising evening in Paris, Nuit et Confidences takes you right to the heart of the night out. This sensual, oriental fragrance was inspired by Annick Goutal’s connection with artists and intellectuals and the curiosity of what immersion in an evening with such company might be like.
Nuit et Confidences is an alluring fragrance with an air of mystery about it. I didn’t think that I would find a scent from this brand to top Tenue de Soirée but with Nuit et Confidences, I certainly have. This is a beautifully refined, feminine eau de parfum that takes a really grown up approach to vanilla.
Opening brightly with bergamot and full-bodied pepper, followed by the captivating heart of frankincense, white flower, incense and tonka bean, this is a scent that’s blended to capture your attention and draw you in. Warming down to the delicious combination of vanilla and white musk, it is a scent that feels feminine, alluring and lasts for hours on the skin. If you love to wear a fragrance thats stands apart from so many others and has people questioning, ‘ooh what scent are you wearing?’ then this is the one for you.
Annick Goutal’s Nuit et Confidences is available in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml ombre effect bottles, stunningly crafted with the signature pompom charm.
You’ll find them on Feel Unique, John Lewis, Escentual, Liberty London, House of Fraser, Harvey Nichols, Harrods and Selfridges.
