When exploring dusky scents, how could one omit “Exquisite Hour”? Iris, rose, and sandalwood (the Goutal website used to call it a rose scent with iris, and now thinks it’s an iris scent with rose,...

I cannot add much more to what other reviewers have said about this fragrance already. Heure Exquise is quite simply a drop dead gorgeous fragrance, and if I did not know better, I would be...

GORGEOUS!!! A beautiful masterpiece. I love this. I have a huge perfume collection, and this is definitely one of my top 5 favorites. I swoon every time I wear it.

This perfume is like a lighter version of Heure Blue from Guerlain. It has less nostalgia and a bit more of sensuality.Is not headache inducing like HB. A true masterpiece. For those who like HB...

Two star meritorious, but I wouldn't reach for this often. Kalishka below describes buttery powdery sandalwood and iris. Agree. I don't find it similar to my bottle of vintage Chanel 19 edT...

I have no idea what this scent contains as I am a fragrance n00b. But I knew what I wanted to smell like. And it was the smell of good old fashioned bar soap, that my little brother stole back home...

This is indeed very similar to Chanel No.19 EDT, especially the lovely Iris dominated in the drydown. To my nose, Heure Exquise is slightly heavier than No.19.

All the positive reviews before mine are on the money.<br> Heure Exquise is vintage in the best sense of the word. Makes me feel like I should be sitting in front of a huge mirrored vanity with a...

Thank you thank you thank you Noisome. Yes, this is indeed Chanel No. 19 in EdT. I KNEW I had smelled this before and couldn't place it and then you hit the nail on the head. This is very...

Sophisticated... Powdery sensuality that comes from afar, elegant sensuality and not primitive, ethereal, mystical... And expensive Iris. Deep, not for the amateurish (Annick would recommend it...

Redundant to say so, but this *is* Chanel No 19 with a soul, even if the notes don't exactly correspond. Somewhere in the drydown I can smell a purse full of freshly printed cash. Below I see a...

It seems I have at last found the closest thing to a signature scent I could have dreamt of. This is the perfume which goes beyond beautiful to me, it defies logic in the sense that it resonates so...

Very few iris actually have any scent. I have grown at least fifty shades and types of iris and the few that have a scent smell exactly like this. I had not smelled an iris perfume before that...

Starts of sharp and green, to the point that I wondered if my decant had started to turn. Dries down fairly quickly into something softer, but it's rose and POWDER. Baby powder, like deodorant. I...

Heure Exquise is my favorite of the Annick Goutal line. It is perhaps the most powdery of the lot. It is often compared to Chanel No. 19. I think they are immensely different. Chanel No. 19,...

Heure Exquise is one of my HG fragrances. I came to like it as a surprise while testing a number of other Goutals, as I'd always wanted one. I think I must have the right chemistry to really set...

I was amused that Heure Exquise, on me, reeked disconcertingly of new money. Crisp dollar bills fresh off the mint, no less. I adore moolah. For sure owning loads of it is truly exquisite; I just...

Heure Exquise is a lovely blue veil of iris, rose, and sandalwood powder. It doesn't fit into the light, springy, girlish aesthetic of most of the other Annick Goutal florals. It's something...

No for me; I felt it was boring. I think that iris just doesn't work for me. I was disappointed; loved the name and was hoping this might be the iris that changed my thinking. For the record, I...
