In Italy, Annick Goutal worked to compose a marvelous garden of fruit ripened in the Italian sun. She then added cypress, a base note which would echo the Tuscan gardens and landscapes. Annick Goutal spoke eloquently of the scent that can be obtained by rubbing the branches between your palms. It also owes its inspiration to Marguerite Yourcenar's novel 'Memoirs of Hadrien,' a brilliant literary interpretation of the life of the emperor. This perfume is universal and timeless, evoking the freshness of citrus fruits in the shade of a lemon tree.
