I’m not a huge fan of green perfumes but Heure Exquise from Annick Goutal has a verdancy that I admire. This perfume has presence and a strong personality. It’s made for conquering the day when you need a bit of ammunition to take on life’s challenges. The galbanum is divine and Annick Goutal and Isabelle Doyen certainly knew how to work with iris. It’s wrapped in rose and hyacinth with a lovely sandalwood base that lends a gorgeous smoothness to the scent.
