Description
The fiery sun and the brilliant light of Tuscany add to the charm of the cypress-lined terraces. The hottest hour of the day is the best time to sink into the soft shade of the lemon trees and reread a few passages from Memoirs of Hadrian.  Bright Sicilian Lemon, Citron, Tart Grapefruit, Green Mandarin, Ylang-Ylang, Cypress and Bergamot tell the story and create the experience, reinforcing GOUTAL as The Author of Perfumes.

Like mimosas in Rome on a summer day
This is a great day-time, everyday, clean scent. It reminds me of sipping a crisp bubbly beverage on a sun-soaked summer day in Rome. The bubbly orange citrus of a mimosa tickling your nose as a gentle breeze of cool cypress bursts past. If you put on too much it's a bit more to the effect of mixing pine-sol and lemon pledge on spring cleaning day - but hey, I still like that smell too.

Love it
Love citrusy scents so it right up my alley. It does go on strong but settles out to a soft cypress and citrus tone. I would wear it for spring summer and going into fall

Bright and crisp
This is a very citrusy scent, but not sweet at all. To my nose, the notes smell like lime, pomelo, and fresh greens. This scent is for the die hard citrus fans out there, and if that is not you, you might not like it. Many perfumes tend to smell too heavy and sweet on my skin, so I like this perfume. I feel like it could use something else to help balance out the astringent quality of the scent, so I like to layer it with other perfumes that have sweeter mandarin orange sort of notes.

Fresh sweet Citrus
This is my favorite scent that I have received so far... at first it's a little overwhelming like a citrus cleaner but once it settles it's a light clean sweet citrus scent... it lasts through my entire work day also. I will be ordering a full bottle!!!

Not a fan
I usually like the unique scents Annick Goutal has but oof. This one. I'm trying to think of how best to describe it. Umm. Eau de urinal cake mixed with orange cleaner? I mean, I like citrus but... Blech. The best I can say is the scent does die down so you don't smell like you've been rolling around on the floor of the local gas station bathroom for very long.

Thankfully it was free
So this was my November perfume. I had a friend subscribe so this ended up being my free month. I'm so glad it did because I ended up not liking this. It has such a strong citrus smell and it's pretty overbearing. This is definitely the first one out of all that I've received since Jan that I do not like. It smells ok after it tones down but I don't know if I will be wearing this one anymore.

I love citrusy scents, but at first this is so overpoweringly lemony it's unpleasant, and as another reviewer noted, smells like lemon pledge. After it dries down, it's not bad, but nothing special. doesn't last long

Citrus with a note of floral
I really love this scent, there are all the right citrus notes without the added sugar and the ylang ylang gives it just a touch of floral that smells more herbal and clean than most floral scents. Highly recommend if you want something feminine that is not overtly sweet.

A little overpowering
I was looking for a bright citrus for the summer, but the ylang-ylang and cypress really drag down the citrus and make it kind of sultry and perfumy and a little overpowering. Not terrible if it's your thing, it's not grandma-y or anything, but not the clean bright scent I was hoping for

Very fresh
This was a very nice surprise...fresh orangey lemony top notes very juicy. Hint of greens and light floral underneath. So sweet and summery...what i loved most is it doesnt change all that much on the dry down except to get ever so slightly peppery but in no way overwhelming !!! A real home run!!!

Lemon Woods
In the bottle, this scent is extremely strong, but doesn’t last long once applied to skin or clothing. I would consider this a more masculine scent. The lemon is strong and is just a bit much for me, but if you like clean scents—this one is for you.

Sophisticated & Clean
I get a lot of cypress in the initial spray which is a bit masculine but intriguing, and there's fresh lemony citrus top notes of course. The dry down is very soft and light- good for work environment or casual weekend get togethers. It just doesn't last very long, so expect to respray at least 2x in a day.

I like the scent, but it's strong and doesn't last.
I like this scent quite a bit, however it starts out very strong and then fades to almost nothing five minutes after I've sprayed it. I like how strong the lemon is in it and I can smell the mandarin and the grapefruit. I like the perfume and will wear it until it runs out, but I don't like it enough to buy a full size bottle.

I found my scent
Love this scent !!! I have been searching for a new scent to replace my Tommy Jeans they no longer make. This scent starts with the lemon, moves into a grapefruit citress, then ends with a beautiful soft flower note that lasts for hours. This is on my list for the full size bottle. I have a weird body chemistry with a great many perfumes and hate the thought of spending alot for one i can't wear. Thanks to Scentbird i can affordably try scents out before investing in one. i am so excited, can't wait to experience my next choice! Thank you Scentbird, and participating perfumes for this platform so we all have the opportunity to find scents that work for us without breaking the bank.

Bug Spray
I wanted to love this. I really did. The notes seemed promising. Perhaps its just my personal chemistry but this smells like bug spray when I wear it. Somewhere in between OFF and a citronella candle. It's very strong and not at all flattering.

This is like a lemon bottled and sold as an eau d'hadrien! Perhaps they should dial back on the lemon a bit, this may make a difference in the scent being a success.

Citrus Overload
The overwhelming notes of citrus are offensive to the wearer. The scent is wrapped so tightly around the citrus notes that it becomes over burdened by them. The scent fails to highlight the crisp, airy and clean topnotes that a citrus based perfume should have leaving instead the wearer to walk away smelling like Pledge Orange Polish.

The scent is nice, very mild. Hardly noticeable on me, yet I know I’m wearing it. This is my first purchase from this site and it’s excellent. Fine fragrance should wear exactly like this.

Bright and Fresh Scent
I love this scent! Had tried it at perfume counters a couple of times and thought it had great potential. Owning it is delightful because I like the fresh, clean and sunny scent. I don't find it too strong, even at first, but it does mellow as time goes on. Floral scents are great if not too strong but this is perfect for every day.

Travel scent
It’s a great citrus that wears close to the skin without any heady notes that can be offensive to sensitive noses. For these reasons I wear it as a travel scent (bus, plane, train, etc) or to sports events. I typically spray a little bit on my neck, scarf, or the underside of my hair to help keep the scent close. Very inoffensive and good for any office setting where perfumes are allowed.

This scent is so clean! At first when you smell it fresh out of the bottle, it's not that pleasing and almost seems too overpowering & flowery. But once applied, it smells so clean & fresh. You almost think it's a really good smelling shampoo you just started using. This is my new favorite scent! My boyfriend couldn't keep his hands off me and said how much he loved this new scent.
