Review of Annick Goutal Sables
Bois de Jasmin - "Immortelle, an everlasting dune flower with a distinctive savory maple syrup aroma, is not an easy note. It tends to dominate with its rich spicy warmth and dark sweetness. Annick Goutal Sables (1985) is brilliant, because it manages to build on immortelle without either twisting it beyond recognition or allowing it to assume a rustic demeanor. Even after experiencing the great immortelle compositions like Christian Dior Eau Noire and the playful ones like L de Lolita Lempicka, Sables still holds the crown for being the perfect example of a perfume based on immortelle."
Fragrantica: "Sables is a strong sentimental perfume that envelops my senses with its spicy, smoky sweet, peppery aura and daring temperament, softening to an embracing and comforting dark woody ambery aroma, that eliminates the passing of time."
Fragrantica: "a very nice, high quality, comforting almost-gourmand that doesn't lack class, perfect for just about any occasion in autumn and winter, for both men and women. I'm so glad I came across Sables"
