Annick Goutal Le Chevrefeuille EDT is one of my favorite honeysuckle perfumes. It smells like the real deal. It reminds me of lazy Southern summers when it is just too hot to do anything but sit on the porch complaining and drinking iced tea. Le Chevrefeuille is a simple scent. It’s a soliflore. It’s honeysuckle. It’s uncomplicated…and that is why I love it.
This is a dewy green honeysuckle. It’s a bit wet and green at initial spritz. If you’ve sniffed honeysuckle before than you immediately identify Annick Goutal Le Chevrefeuille as a honeysuckle fragrance. The dry-down is floral and fresh. I do pick up faint traces of jasmine mixed with the sweet honeysuckle. Le Chevrefeuille doesn’t progress much. Sometimes I notice it being a “greener” floral. It’s a floral with sweetness and wetness. It’s carefree and joyous.
I think that the lasting power is good for an EDT and a honeysuckle scent at that. Most honeysuckle fragrances are so “heady” that they evaporate very quickly. I can smell traces of Le Chevrefeuille on me 5 hours after initial spritz in the summer. Annick Goutal Le Chevrefeuille is such a good honeysuckle perfume that there is no reason to even try anything else. I’m serious. If I could only have one honeysuckle scent forever, this Annick Goutal would be it. It’s super feminine, light, and carefree. It is a wonderful floral fragrance for spring and summer.
Notes listed include: honeysuckle, wild narcissus, petit grain, fresh green notes, jasmine
Give Annick Goutal Le Chevrefeuille a try if you are looking for a “real” honeysuckle perfume or if you like fragrances such as Jo Malone Honeysuckle & Jasmine Cologne, Sage Citrine Perfume Oil, Melissa Flagg Clementine and/or Santa Maria Novella Caprifoglio. There was also a discontinued Cynthia Rowley perfume that reminds me of Le Chevrefeuille.
The 3.4 oz EDT retails for $128 at Annick Goutal.
