Summary: Oh my gosh! This scent is gorgeous! I am a big fan of Annick Goutal's fragrances, in general, but this one is out-of-this-world! It is an impressive feat to blend the sweet florals of jasmine, gardenia, (and do I detect orange blossom? Or maybe lemon?) with a lightness that makes this scent very wearable. The imagery of a light spring rain shower is apt. It is a refreshing scent, not cloying.
Summary: Already having a number of top Annick Goutal favorites (being a bit addicted to their reusable beautiful bottles, not to mention the delicately clean scents), and a select few other yummies in my collection of `wear often' fragrances, I thought I was about done `shopping' for perfumes or colognes. Still, I stumbled upon `Un Matin d'Orage' and after having read regarding key aromatic ingredients, suddenly intrigued, I thought I might risk a try of it, scent unsensed.
Summary: Annick Goutal UN MATIN D'ORAGE is, to my nose, essentially a gargantuan gardenia (GG) perfume with a few twists and turns thrown in for good measure, but the gardenia note is rather strong, so be prepared. I see that gardenia is not listed as a note, but are not gardenia notes always constructed? I believe that champaca and magnolia are substituting for what is often tuberose, but jasmine, another key note in big white florals, is present here as well.
Summary: I absolutely love this perfume. I bought it in Berlin at KDW for a much higher price and brought it home with me. It has a deep, yet light floral smell that is not over powering. It also smells like fresh rain! It's an absolutely beautiful perfume. I didn't know they had it at Anthropologie!
Summary: Un Matin d'Orage is the most unique scent I have ever found - and I am something of a perfume junkie. It's subtle, mysterious, unlike the too-strong florals that Annick Goutal traditionally makes. The notes and undertones are all well and good, but what I smell when I wear this perfume, is a mixture of rainwater and honeybees. Seriously. Have you ever smelled that?? It's refreshing, light, and once more: unique!
