Each perfume in Albert’s private collection was born from a memory of a place or of a person – transforming them into extraordinary fragrances to conserve them in time.
In 1936, Albert Fouquet traveled to Megève – the luxurious ski resort town in eastern France, as he did every winter to spend his days skiing and his evening socializing. On this particular night, Fouquet attended a dinner at his friend Nicholas’ château. At this gathering he met Annicke, a young Austrian woman with striking green eyes. Mesmerised by her, they spent the evening drawn to each other – chatting by the fireplace, dancing and drinking. As the evening came to a close and feeling the fluttering of love on this first night, Annicke and Fouquet promised to stay in contact. As Annicke was to travel back to Austria and Fouquet to Paris, they promised to write to each other and meet again in a few months time.
Their letters were filled with love, desire and dreams. Inspired by their planned meeting in Vienna, Albert created a fragrance to present to Annicke. She was amazed by the beauty of this perfume, and from then on Albert would present Annicke with a new perfume he had created on every meeting.
Annicke 3 has an element of glamour to it – this perfume is soft and floaty on the skin, leaving a gentle trail. The most beautiful Gardenia note enchants and with a soft sweet heart, and a slightly juicy Berry note that gives this feminine perfume a cheeky little sparkle. The soft and creamy dry down is exquisite and comforting, almost like your favourite cashmere jumper – luxurious, warm and comforting all at once.
