Description
The hour was near. She added the finishing touches, slipping on a bakelite necklace and stealing her mother's coat on the way out. She threw it nonchalantly over her bare shoulder as she walked out the door. The powdery, sensual scent of her skin mixed with the very feminine and reassuring fragrance of her role model filled her with incredible confidence. She was ready to embrace the promise of a new and grand night out in Paris.  The luxurious notes of Iris, Patchoulli, Black Current, Leather, Musk tell the story and create the experience, reinforcing GOUTAL as The Author of Perfumes.

I've been on the search for a light floral sweet leather scent so I was very excited to test this out. Unfortunately there is something in this that just smells awful and overly strong. It is a lot more masculine then I thought it would be.

Best fragrance beautiful blend of WOW
The perfume starts with a burst of patchouli then vanilla to dry down of musk vanilla and green smell.It is sensual but not overwhelming. Not a heavy scent .You will neec to reapply during the day.Scent stays on your clothes. Which is good bc it is not weak like alot of fragrances out there today.This is such a fantastic perfume in my opinion. Give it a try.

Sensual, elegant, delicious
I am obsessed with this perfume! It's so well blended and balanced it's hard too pick out which elements I love about it! Somehow both complex and strong, but also soft and refined - not a heavy musk or overwhelming leather. Not powdery or sweet, more of a fruity-floral. Patchouli, musk, and leather add interesting depth and balance so this is not overwhelmingly floral. Makes me feel expensive and sophisticated, it's sensual but elegant :)

I'm changing my review...I said it was practically a skin scent and described the perfume as a good dinner date choice. BUT when I let my friend try it, she said it was a blackcurrant bomb! Apparently, it's so strong that I'm nose blind to it. I gave it to her, since there's not sense in keeping a perfume I can't even smell. She likes fruity perfumes, so this is up her alley.

Lovely smell, doesn't project
This smells incredible, a very sophisticated, sweet, and classy powdery floral. I don't pick up on much leather. The powdery florals, patchouli, and black currant are far more prominent. As much as I love the scent, it doesn't last for very long. Maybe 4-5 hours depending on the weather. If you aren't bothered by weak longevity, by all means, purchase this. It's divine.

Interesting
Hardly the dark cloying leather floral I was afraid this might be, I took a chance and found it almost bright and fruity with leather undertones. The tart black currant and soft Iris keep it from sinking down into the depths of masculinity, and the patchouli and musk do not overwhelm. In fact, I barely smell them at all. Just a hint now and then. If you're looking for something different this is definitely worth a try. Not sure I would get it again, as there are others I like more, but my guy LOVES this one, so it's perfect for when I want to mix up my usual and still knock his socks off. A sexy new scent... that grows on me more each time I wear it!

Spicy
It smelled nice but was not a long lasting scent. I strayed away from my usual floral, light and airy preference for something a bit more seductive and sexy. This was mediocre on that account. Just wasn't my jam but it might be someone else's. Biggest complaint, scent faded away too quickly.

Great perfume for rare occasions
The patchouli and leather are very prominent in this perfume. It's a great blend that is pleasing to the senses. The downfall is the intensity of this perfume, making it only an occasional wear.

Surprisingly soft...
I was really excited to receive this since it contains many favorite notes—and I've had good luck with other Annick Goutal scents. Tenue de Soiree was a disappointment. It opens with a very gentle, powdery iris and within moments a slightly smokey undercurrent, leather perhaps, makes an appearance. The patchouli is decidedly muted in TdS and plays a very minor role when it appears. Musk is listed and normally this is an appealing base note, but it was almost undetectable in this fragrance. It became a skin scent on me almost immediately, although it lingers softly for several hours. Overall, though, this is a soft, slightly sweet (black currant perhaps?) and rather unoriginal fragrance. Note: I used two sprays on a pulse point and one spray on a linen scarf to evaluate. Sillage is 1/10, longevity 3/10 and originality/wow-factor is 2/10. The house of Goutal usually produces stellar scents but this one, which is supposed to signal a new direction aimed at younger consumers, is a huge disappointment IMO. The notes held a lot of promise for something quite original and punchy, but the perfume failed to deliver. After an interesting, if muted, opening, the fragrance dries down into nothing more than very soft and subtle echos of patchouli with the vaguest animalic hint of musk. I give it three stars because it's not unpleasant and when I sniff my wrist or my scarf, I like what I smell. It's just not exciting or unusual or layered...just another semi-patchouli scent.

Cute smell
Love the smell. It’s very light. Reminds me of a powdery fruity smell. Definitely cute scent for my teenage daughters to wear or if I’m running around town. Does last quit a bit but you will have to re spray if you want to make the scent more fresh smelling.

Really enjoy this one!
This is a modern chypre, feminine and lovely but it makes a statement. It gets noticed but I don't find it overpowering so it could be an office scent but elegant enough to wear to a formal event. I first got a small sample with another Annick Goutal (Nuit e confidences), I thought I was going to like that one but I didn't. Very happy with my Scentbird sample, looking forward to wearing Tenuee de Soiree more and decide if I should by a full bottle. BTW, the actual bottle is so pretty!

I LOOOOOOVE This one
The first spray was a little strong but it settled and turned into a beautiful scent. I love everything about this one. I have had other perfumes that are just too strong but this is perfect- strong but light at the same time. Over the course of the day it settles into a woodsy scent with a light floral accent.

What a nice fragrance, it was even my teenage daughter's favorite and she never likes anything! It's very soft but passionate, soothing and mellow. Fresh but not sparkly, if that makes sense. Scent lasts a respectable amount of time. I even spray a little on before bed. It doesn't stand out but it accentuates nicely.

Its more sweet than flowery to me I think but it's a tough competition meaning it is not to sweet nor to flowery. I get the leather under it all but it doesn't last as long as I would like. I feel like I need an occasion to wear this and I just don't have many of those days. My mother likes this too.

Lovely
I find it challenging to postulate on something so personal to the wearer but this is soft, creamy and both floral and gourmand--a little more so than I typically gravitate to but love it. It may be due to it's subtle nature. Only draw back (more so for some than others I imagine) is it's staying power but regardless it's a beautiful scent and Scentbird is perfect way to sample without over commingling

So unique
This is the first fragrance I've got with black currant and I'm in love. Annick Goutal is know for making the most feminine beautiful fragrances. This fragrance is so unique..its classy and sophisticated definitely not a every day fragrance more suitable for a night at the opera. Definitely will be buying a full bottle to add to my collection. Its sweet but not sugar sweet, its mature but far from old smelling, the iris and leather is heavenly, the black currant adds sweetness & roundness. Its a perfume collectors must have.

Pretty, Innocent and Sexy
I love this scent. It's not overpowering when it's first sprayed and settles like a tender kiss that you want to continue to feel all day. The floral, fruit and patchouli notes are so balanced with the leather and musk you barely notice them. I'm not into floral or strong patchouli scents, but when they are used delicately, it makes scents (see what I did there? ;) ). These notes used together make a lovely song. I'd imagine myself wearing this to a dinner theater or a night at the college campus orchestra. It did make me feel pretty. It seemed to have an innocent powder scent an hour in. The subtle lingering scent on my wrist when wrapping my arms around my love at the end of the night added to a sexy feeling. I did think the spray wore off too soon for an Eau De Parfum. The wear seemed to last 3 to 4 hours, so I'd carry the spray in your purse to freshen up later into the evening.

I gave this a low rating because I really dislike the smell. It has a weird after cigarette smell to it.

Love the spicy patchouli
This starts out with the patchouli, which I love, and then turns to a slightly floral scent. But a VERY LIGHT floral. The end note is slightly sweet, slightly amber. The amber part is the reason for 4 stars because that's not my favorite scent. But I know plenty of people with love this all the way thru!

Simply Amazing!
This is my new favorite perfume! With every move I made I could catch another whift of this amazing scent. I was asked several times what it was. Powerful, seductive...just wow.
