SOTD: Annick Goutal Heure Exquise

Last time I wore this, I didn't like it. This was dismaying, because I'd just bought a bottle.

My dislike was based on dryness and powder. From past experience I know that the cure for that is often what I call "nose distance" - spraying the perfume in places where it has to travel at least several inches to get to my nose. These days, that means the back of my neck and my stomach.

So that's what I did today. It worked. There's just enough powder to give me that black-and-white-photo classic-scent feeling, but not enough to annoy me. Today it's lovely.

Review Roundup: Is here.

  1. I had the exact same issue with HE, though fortunately based only on a decant. Must try the distance treatment.

  2. Yes! Definitely worth trying. In fact, that treatment is dangerously expanding the population of fragrances that I like. An expensive consequence.
