Etro Gomma & Lemon Sorbet #1, Annick Goutal Eau d'Hadrien


Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Thursday, August 31, 2006 7:36 PM (Eastern)

The Lemon Sorbet faded out after a while...as I had been told it would...still it did not disappear, I can still smell it close to my skin. What's funny now is that my sweater still smells a bit of last night's Gomma--and the combination, dual ghosts of Lemon Sorbet and Gomma--is intoxicating. No other word for it.

I should also mention I've been trying some Annick Goutal fragrances, because Eau d'Hadrien is another "lemon and herb" scent. Right off the bat I'd have to say the Goutal is better than Lemon Sorbet, if only because it's...better.

What's going through my mind is that Eau d'Hadrien is the female version where Lemon Sorbet is the male (although both fragrances are marketed as unisex). I tried what I'm sure is the EDT version of Eau d'Hadrien, based on descriptions from basenotes.net (scroll down, this is the review I found most helpful), hence what I got was the more cypress, less floral version of Eau d'Hadrien.

You would think this would be the more masculine of the two, given that Lemon Sorbet is bright, sweet and sparkly, and Eau d'Hadrien is not sweet at all, but rather spare and herby, but Eau d'...is entirely soothing, like comfort food. Lemon Sorbet demands attention. I rest my case.
