Annick Goutal

Heure Exquise   

16 Reviews

For Annick, it was when sunset and twilight began. Sandalwood, Florentine iris and Turkish rose give it a fresh feeling like the transition of day into night... for those very private moments.

    I love this scent of soft iris and woods. However, I cannot find any similarity to Chanel No.19 or Crabree and Evelyn's Nantucket Briar; both are quite different. I have worn them for years. Heure Exquise has that certain sexiness the others don't. I would pick this one over them anytime!

  • HOPFLOWER01/20/2009

    One of my favourite A. Goutal fragrances, the rose is softly hidden awhile behind the smoky iris and the powdery scent. This one is a beauty! I must say I am rather surprised that a lot of people add unnecessary comments about perfumes. One should describe the perfume, not bring up others and/or compare them to something completely different. People want to read what one experienced with the perfume at hand; not unrelated stories!

    This is so evocative! I've always loved Ralph Lauren Safari and Chanel No. 19, and Heure Exquise smells like the perfect combination of both. Hauntingly beautiful.

    It's only just dawned on me that Heure Exquise smells almost exactly like Crabtree and Evelyn's Nantucket Briar, particularly in the powdery dry down.Also, they do a gorgeous dry body oil ! Worth a try before paying the high price for Annick Goutal. No doubt there are subtle differences of complexity etc. but Nantucket Briar has a soft, herby, woody, rosy scent which really lasts - it might be patchouli rather than sandalwood, though. Try it!!

    I bought and wore this in the 80's when I was in my late teens. Kind of dated for me now. The dry-down smells like Chanel No. 19 (the EDP version).

  • YVA02/21/2003

    This is the finest A. Goutal's fragrance. Powdery, soft and elegant, an all time fragrance! I also like the new "Quel Amour!" perfume and I think it might be great for spring. It is composition of peonies, roses and red fruits. Tender, feminine and YUMMY!!!

  • MUGUET12/20/2002

    Exquisite Exquisite!!!! The balance is perfect. The florals aren't excessively sweet. It's highly complex. There's a powdery element from the iris that's very feminine. It's a "womanly" scent, highly sophisticated. There's a faint rose note that's not cloying as in obvious rose fragrances. It's smells absolutely fabulous very close to the skin (not all fragrances do, some only smell good at a distance). Men love it. What other praise can I give? My favorite AG. This has been compared to Chanel #19, and there is some basis (probably the rose plus the orris) although I think #19 is much sharper overall.

  • JASMINE11/13/2002

    Aldehydic green floral. It has a mature but elegant quality about it.

  • NICOLE10/21/2002

    Great. I like all AG perfumes. Very refined, delicate and made with finest ingredient. Just know which scent you prefer. I chose Heure Exquise because it is powdery, smells rose and stays a few hours. Doesn't follow any fashion trends. The best perfumer of all.

  • N.N.08/27/2002

    This is my fav among Annick Goutal's fragrances (most of them I don't like). But there is a very nice NEW A.Goutal's perfume "Quel Amour". I've just tried it in Paris and I like it a lot: it is sweet but not too sweet, tender, feminine, a happy fragrance!!! Peony and rose... and - I don't know other ingredients. I like it!

  • DANICA06/27/2002

    This is a really elegant fragrance, if you like her fragrances. She is a traditional french parfumeur and this is for a nose that appreciates the complexity and sophistication of the scent. My boyfriend loves it. I highly recommend, but try first (its powdery, not like her fruitier or floral fragrances--Hadrien, Charlotte, Sud, Camille)

  • KATIA06/03/2002

    I don't like most of Annick Goutal's perfumes. Anyway, I think that Heure Exquise is her best and most elegant fragrance: powdery and distinctive notes, very sophisticated is special. And I can recommend you Eau du Sud for the summer (I think it is unisex fragrance): very warm notes of agrumes & tobacco, air of French riviera... nice.

  • GAIL05/23/2002

    I'm not crazy about all of her fragrances either, but I do like Ciel for summer, and Heure Exquise for evenings.

  • DM05/15/2002

    Her fragrances are great, all natural , no chemicals, and they are so elegant. however I don't like her heavier scents like grand amour, and the others Ciel, Hadrien, Charlotte, and Cherie are the best.

  • LOLA05/12/2002

    every time i try any A.G products,i end up with the same question:was this woman snorting anything illegal when she designed her perfumes?YUUUUUCK!!!

  • I.G.05/08/2002

    This is (in my opinion) the most elegant of all Annick Goutal's fragrances, but I'm not crazy about it. Very powdery, but delicate scent.

  • ANDREA03/25/2002

    A bit TOO POWDERY!!!
