When Annick Goutal launched Tenue De Soirée, I knew that I would be in for a real treat. Opulent and gourmand yet youthful and fun, this is a stunning, contemporary take on a chypre fragrance with notes of iris and patchouli.
If I could liken the scent to any other, it would be a modern day Gucci Rush… now theres a throwback for you!
Inspired by the exciting feeling of what is to come following a night in Paris, Tenue De Soirée encapsulates the elegance and power of a woman who is getting ready for a night out; choosing her favourite tenue de soirée (or evening dress!) and spritzing on her favourite, empowering fragrance.
Tenue de Soirée is unlike anything else from Annick Goutal; it set out to be a manifesto of audacity, a perfume of liberty and that it certainly is.
As with the fragrance itself, the bottle style is new to Annick Goutal and provides a beautifully opulent yet fun contrast to the styling of their other perfumes. I love the purple gradient glass bottle that was inspired by the sky at dusk, the detachable rich purple fluffy pompom inspired by the puffs on vintage compacts that adds a whimsical touch to the aesthetic of the perfume and the luxury touch from the dangling gold medallion.
This gold accent is actually stamped with the initials of the fragrance house. I love that Annick Goutal thought of everything when creating this fragrance as it hits all of the senses from smell with the perfume, sight with the aesthetic of the bottle, touch with the tactile pompom and also sound as the little gold medallion clinks against the bottle like two glasses of champagne.
What could be more luxurious?
Tenue de Soirée is an addictive scent that I can wear it day or night, plus it lasts for hours before I need to top it up. I do find that as the day goes on, its scent is more noticeable to others than myself and I have had many compliments on since I started wearing it.
