Fragrance Spotlight: Cacharel Anais Anais
Anais Anais. An iconic scent from Cacharel that many women across the world have worn.
Oftentimes it is a blast from the past, recognized as something worn in highschool, once upon a time ago.
Anais Anais is a floral scent for Women, released in 1978 as the very first fragrance of the Cacharel fashion house. It was a collaboration between perfumers Roger Pellegrino, Robert Gonnon, Paul Leger, and Raymond Chaillain.
It is a romantic scent comprised of a lush floral bouquet surrounded by citruses and delicate warm notes. It boasts a refreshing youthfulness that feels feminine, airy, and energetic.
Its flirty nature is both casual and elegant and works for Women of any age.
Its scent pyramid is:
Top Notes: Orange Blossom, Hyacinth, Honeysuckle, Galbanum, Bergamot
Heart Notes: Rose, White Lily, Lily of the Valley, Ylang Ylang, Tuberose, Carnation
Base Notes: Amber, Sandalwood, Incense, Cedarwood, Oakmoss, Vetiver
Its composition was centered around White Lily, a flower regarded as a symbol of purity, which was reflected within the campaign ads that featured angelic women with soft features, clad in garments of soft colors that hung off the body in an innocently seductive manner.
Its inspiration is said to be Anaitis, or Anahita, the Persian Goddess of Fertility, Water, Health, Healing, and Wisdom.
With the great success of Anais Anais, Anais Anais Eau Legere was released in 2006, created by perfumer Olivier Cresp, followed by Anais Anais Flower Edition in 2007.
Anais Anais was relaunched in 2014, and re-released as Anais Anais L’Original alongside Anais Anais Premiere Delice, created by perfumers Olivier Cresp and Dora Baghriche.
