The power of citrus, essences of Sicilian lemon, light citron, tangerine, and juicy grapefruit. Fruits ripened by the Italian sun...
A favourite of Vouge's Beauty Director, Kathleen Baird-Murray:
“Just one whiff of the Sicilian lemons in this classic citrus scent and I’m on a yacht in Croatia, watching a sunset and sipping a gin and tonic. (Except I’m not. I’m at a desk, writing this).”
In Italy, Annick Goutal worked to compose a marvellous garden of fruit ripened in the Italian Sun. She then added cypress, a base note which would echo the Tuscan gardens and landscapes. Annick Goutal spoke eloquently of the scent that can be obtained by rubbing the branches between your palms. The fragrance is an expression of Annick Goutal's great love for the South. It also owes its inspiration to Marguerite Yourcenar's novel "Memoirs of Hadrien", a brilliant literary interpretation of the life of the emperor. This perfume is universal and timeless, evoking the freshness of citrus fruits in the shade of a lemon tree.
