In the 70’s, Annick Goutal opened an antique store in Paris called Folavril. Her experience working there was the inspiration for the fragrance of the same name she launched in 1980.

Rich mango, which smells like a tropical version of lily of the valley appears right at the start.  Exotic jasmine soon appears to bolster the white floral dimension.  Then Boronia flower shows up with notes of raspberry and violet along with a dry woodiness. It also gives the frag a light note of the smell of clean laundry.  Then, tomato leaf comes forward and adds a spicy, green, vegetal edge that pulls the fruity/florals  back from smelling too sweet or cloying. The drydown has a soft smooth woodiness from the Boronia flower.

The word ‘Folavril’ translates as April Fool, but Annick Goutal isn’t playing a trick. Folavril is a refined, elegant expression of spring. It’s just not necessarily springtime in Paris. Her web site says Folavril is: ‘ A truly enticing scent that whisks you away into travel paradise.’
What a great smelling ticket to paradise!

Notes: Mango, jasmine, Boronia flower, tomato leaf.
