The Upper East Side was smelling sweet last night, June 11, after the launch of the new Annick Goutal boutique.

The French perfumery hosted an opulent unveiling of its new store on the corner of Madison at 75th Street. While fragrances have been available at retailers such as Saks and Bloomingdales for several years, this is only the second of the brand’s openings in the US.

The company is named after its later founder, pianist and model Annick Goutal, and is famous for its fragrances such as Gardenia Passion and Petite Cherie. The store is a perfect representation of French Chic style, with its white and gold aesthetic and elegantly displayed products.

Daughter of Annick, Camille Goutal, and business partner Isabelle Doyen, welcomed guests into their fragrant world, where the brand’s signature oval glass bottles with gold tops and round bottles with butterfly stoppers created a captivating display. Also present was the company’s Marketing Director, Christina Moller-Theulle.

While guests perused the myriad fragrances, candles and bath oils, fashion illustrator Lacee Swan designed hand-painted customized Annick Goutal bags.

Among those celebrating the launch were Google’s Bradley Horowitz and celebrity manicurist Lisa Logan.
