Summary: I have been a collected of many wonderful fragrances since 1980. this smell I hate, I am wondering did I really get the real stuff in the bottle because the price of this is very high, it is high even when on sale. Personally this smells like cigarettes and I hate the smell, I think I need to go into a store and compare. I brought the product because of a nice price and I have seen the price much higher than what I paid for it.
Summary: Grand Amour is a grand perfume in classic style. I've only owned a couple Goutals but they all had a tell-tale consistency to them - they are clear, for lack of a better term, no matter what they are. This one is clear as well, but it also is a bit indolic. Grand Amour is a grown up Petite Cherie! Hyacinth & honeysuckle blooming right next to fresh dog poo. Better as it dries but I can't get past the indolic elements of this perfume.
Summary: Green floral is my favourite category. I like my flowers with the leaves, drops of water and soil in the roots. Grand Amour is one of this pretty green florals that are lacking the mud and a bit of foliage, but on exchange, it has a soulful beauty. Grand Amour starts with hyacinth. Of all the flowers of the basket, is this gorgeous persian prince the one that stands out, and this note is very realist.
My Girlfriend Loves this Natural Long Lasting Scent.

Summary: Grand Amour by Annick Goutal is only sold at the more upscale stores in NYC like Bergdorf Goodmans, and Saks Fifth Avenue. You cannot purchase it at Bloomingdale's they aren't considered upscale enough anymore,(BS),so I'm real happy that it's available on Amazon for half the price of retail which is just unheard of these days. My Girlfriend has extravagant taste but she is not tacky.
Excerpt: This is by far my favourite of all the Annick Goutal fragrances, and has become a signature of mine.It draws compliments from both woman and men, and is a gentle,romantic,classy floral yet also has depth and lingers beautifully in your clothes and room. I also like the fact that all of the Goutal range contain very natural, botanic ingredients. They are quite distinctive and smell expensive and chic.
Pros: Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Long-Lasting, Sensual, Sexy
