Songes by Annick Goutal + 25:43 by LUSH + Louis Vuitton = FABULOUS!!

Hey Stink Monkeys,

I’ll tell you a secret. I love Songes by Annick Goutal but I know it won’t last a full work night on me so I under layer on my stomach and backs of knees with LUSH 25:43. The Annick Goutal lasts about 2-3 hours and then 25:43 takes over and they are brilliant together. Every time I wear them as a duo people ask, compliment etc.

Songes by Isabelle Doyen for Annick Goutal 2005

Fragrantica gives these featured accords in one line:
Frangipani, tiare flowers, jasmine sambac absolute, ylang-ylang, French vanilla

A floaty, dreamy, white night flower and vanilla glamourpuss of a fragrance that is fun, festive and elegant for the flirty seductress that you are inside. Songes will let her out and make the world aware of your intentions.

Fragrantica gives these featured accords in one line:
Tonka bean, lime, lemongrass, ylang-ylang, myrtle, vanilla, litsea, hay

Still dreamy but less float and more heft. Greener and more resinous 25:43 is way more tenacious and really starts its most beautiful section at about the 2 hour point where the vanilla, tonka and ylang shine to a soft vanillic whisper at about 6 hours that lingers and lingers.

This mini movie has nothing to do with today’s topic but it’s too lovely to let slide another moment. Till tomorrow, ENJOY!!

    Yesterday Madeleine was wafting three, today you’re doing two at once. Is this the thin edge of the wedge Portia? Or the top of that slippery slippery slope of daily fragrance combining.

    I really love Songes too and I think I need a bottle soon! I can’t decide between EDP and EDT, any thoughts?

  5. dkchocoman says:

    Never thought about trying 25:43 by Lush before and I have a sample vial coming of Songes by Annick Goutal EDT +edp. Songes doesn’t last long? 2-3 hours is a pretty short time, but I shall see when my samples arrive.
