Mon Parfum Cheri, Par Camille! A wonderful tribute to Annick by Camille, just like Annick created years before Eau de Camille for her daughter. One, playful and young, for a little girl. The other, dark and nostalgic, a late tribute to one of the pioneers of the French niche scene.

Mon Parfum Cheri is a tribute to patchouli with the aid of violet (one of very few fragrances where I actually love the note), Iris, plum and heliotropin. Underneath, the famous Prunol base which harkens back to wonders like Diorama and Femme de Rochas. All three could stand proudly together, scenting the black and white Hollywood movie stars of the early 30’s. Glamour like you don’t see anymore, in dark purple hues and heavy velvet drapes.

MPC opens, shifts and ends with patchouli; raw, rich, earthy in full glory, avoiding hippy associations but instead showcasing notes and accords that accompany the note. Violet, a note I don’t particularly enjoy, lends its ozonic quality to provide bursts of freshness along the ride. There aren’t citrus notes like in so many fragrances; instead, violet provides the glass of water to this rich chocolate cake. Plum, a succulent and erotic fruit, provides juiciness and warmth, accompanied by peach and coconut lactones that together make the fragrance become creamier as the day progresses. Instead of sweet notes, these here provide the softness and slight sweetness that comes and goes, making MPC more approachable and less stoic. There are hints of cardamom, a cool spice, that provides hints of warm spiciness. Could there also be some cumin? The fragrance is slightly animalic; the smell of warm skin, lost kisses, embraces.
Cumin is definitely there. Heliotropin, with a slight almond nuance provides the forbidden, the mystique. A fragrance that is dangerous is always more intriguing. Femme Fatale, Homme Fatal. Passionate and sensual.
Iris, profound and solemn, rich and fatty in its orris butter facet, is threaded throughout the evolution. At times powdery, at times dark and rooty but always beautiful, Iris evokes the softness of a lovers kiss. Velvet gloves that are slowly removed to caress a peachy cheek. Softness and strength.

MPC is a fragrance of emotions. More chypre in feel although not technically one, it is both heavily charged with associations of past creations due to its complexity and heft, but also because of the tribute behind it. Simple notes that are easily identifiable, deft in their combination and masterful blending. Evolving and evoking of loving memories, rich nuances and strong presence; it lasts easily a whole day with ever present sillage. And this is the edt! For me, one of the best Annick Goutal creations and one I was smart enough to buy 2 bottles of as soon as it was launched, fearing it couldn’t last too long on the market. Unfortunately, I was right. My ruby red bottles with black lace bow will have to last me for ever. Thankfully the 2/3 sprays one needs to stay fragrant for many hours will help achieve this. Lovers of vintage perfumes; absolute must try!
