High night of clear stars,
... that stand like bright signs..."
The winter sky arches endlessly high and wide and black lined.
Not with the cuddly black velvet that shelters us in the love nights of summer.
No, it is something rigid, cold, that crackles and shines softly, not sighing tenderly: Taffeta or Duchesse?
On this shining coolness, the stars appear bright and clear as gems; the narrow crescent of the waning moon has been placed in between with a fine brushstroke.
A very special ray emanates from the morning star, Venus: its light shimmers almost blue-white.
Black and sharply drawn - like silhouettes of a skilful master - the sleeping giants of the coniferous trees stand before this celestial spectacle.
Snow covers her branches in thick white caterpillars; on the forest floor there are opulent snow carpets: it is very cold and everything is asleep!
Now and then a branch cracks through the white load or the cold, otherwise it is silent: the world consists of black, white and shining gems.
The ladies Goutal and Doyen have captured exactly this mood in "Nuit Étoilée".
The nightly coolness appears particularly fresh due to spicy peppermint, paired with a hint of selected citrus aromas, and gives the illusion of being able to breathe deeply under a wide night sky!
Coniferous woods, balsamic and mysterious (what have they experienced!) underline this extraordinary fragrance experience: a soft vibration pervades the air after the first spraying!
Angelica, also called angelica, softens a little the sharp edges and edges that can accompany this fragrant creature: like an angel's wings, this spicy aroma spreads.
A bit of softness and quiet warmth is good; this is how "Nuit Étoilée" becomes round and harmonious, despite the powerful fragrance ingredients to the icy, silent winter night!
This scent of the cold, clear winter night is well done; it is powerful and yet protective at the same time. The durability is the same as that of all Annick Goutal fragrances; you can't expect more than these fragrances can give. And yet they are beautiful and can be laid out quite well!
Not every fragrance has to accompany you for hours; a four or five hour walk through a mysterious winter night can be wonderful.
But then it's also time to get out into the warmth of the fireplace and enjoy hot chocolate with a shot!
So the lines of an old song seem to me to be suitable as a theme.
Only I ask myself, where have they all gone, these old songs that were once so well-known?
I remember that in my childhood, the Sunday request concert was part of the coffee time.
"Greetings from East to West" were exchanged and much beautiful music was played; the voices of Rudolf Schock, Fritz Wunderlich, Anneliese Rothenberger and Ingeborg Hallstein were well known and popular.
Where have they gone, these voices, these songs? Have they all been forgotten? Were they lost in the cool expanse of the endless starry sky, which was skilfully captured as "Nuit Étoilée" in one of the typical Annick Goutal flacons?
