Annick Goutal Petite Chérie is an adorable and carefree fragrance. It is very obvious that this is a fragrance for younger folks with its fun and sassy notes. And I find it no surprise that Annick Goutal created this fragrance for her daughter, Camille. It is a pretty fragrance and I find it an amazing “starter” fragrance. It’s a cute, joyous fragrance perfect for young girls because it isn’t “sensuous” and is far from “seductive”. However, its fresh and carefree notes appeal to women of all ages. It’s a light-wearing fragrance that wears closely. It’s fruity fresh crispness wears wonderfully in spring and summer. It’s a nice fragrance for fragrance “beginners” of all ages. It’s such a pleasant fragrance. I really do not see anyone finding this fragrance offensive. It isn’t the most exciting fragrance on the market but it is very pleasant, very fresh. It seems to mold to the wearer and just seem so natural.

Mary Cassatt's "L'Été"

At first, all I pick up on is the pear. I love this. The pear has a juicy sweetness that isn’t sticky or nonintoxicating sweet. It just smells fresh and juicy. I love pear used in fragrance, if it is not Jolly Rancher-ish. Pear has a floral quality to it anyways. The top is fruity without smelling synthetic. It has the freshness of a fruit stand. It smells like ripe pears, fuzzy peach, and tart slices of apple. It has a floralness to it. But, it is more of that natural floralness of fruits or fruit blossoms. The dry-down is soft, delicate. It’s a very faint powdery vanilla with dried grass, so it doesn’t come across as too foody.

Notes listed include pear, peach, rose, cut grass, and vanilla.

This fragrance is very light-wearing. It is an EDT. It really seems to be a fragrance that I will want to wear on days that the temps exceed 70. This fragrance doesn’t really project itself so I do see it suitable for work/school environments.

Petite Cherie Perfume for Women Eau De Toilette Spray 3.4 Oz by Annick Goutal

I wish I could write a bad review of this since it so expensive and I need to talk myself out of buying another one. (It retails for $80 for about 13 ounces of fluid, that is some expensive sake.) Fresh Rice Sake Bath comes in a beautiful but simple glass bottle. It detoxifies and renews the body and leaves the skin feeling lovely. It contains 50% sake, pine, ginger, daikon, spearmint, pomengrante and valerian. Sounds like one heck of a mixed sake drink. For years sake has been used to lighten sun spots (geishas used this) and pine has anti-bacterial properties. Whatever it does, I don’t really care. I like the way it feels.

Put it into a really hot bath and relax. The fragrance is a little too fruity for my taste but it isn’t sacharin. It smells of peaches, apricots and a dash of cassis. There is a hint of ginger. I like it. Anyways, you will really start sweating like you are in a sauna. It totally becomes a “detox” experience. I usually shower with a blast of icy cold water afterwards and then chill and relax with a glass of ice water with cucumber and lemon. Being in this foam bath actually raises your heart rate. It just feels good especially if you are feeling chill or ill. It is a nice product. I don’t know how long it should last but I felt my bottle didn’t last long. But, I do have a tendency to use too much. I’ve heard other people say this lasts forever. If I buy another bottle, trust me, I will make it last longer.

You can buy it at sephora.com or beauty.com.
