=Cacharel Anais Anais Eau de Parfum=
This review is about Cacharel Anais Anais Eau de Toilette Spray for women. I love collecting the sets of the mini perfumes at Christmas, as I like to try different perfumes, without the large price tag of some of the bottles, and among my collection of minatures was the Anais Anais perfume.
The design of the bottle is very much in keeping with the traditional sized bottles, with a white design on the bottle and a little silver top.
On the boxes of the perfume it is recommended once opened the perfume has a expiry of 2 years.
Normally I like quite strong perfumes, such as Poison, but for some reason I really like this perfume even though I would normally purchase such a flower based perfume.
I find that the heart notes are the ones that I find the best smell from the perfume, as these include Jasmine, Lilly and a hint of musk, which to me I find that this just reminds me of a summery day.
Overall the perfume does have a floral smell, and for me this is a day perfume, but it is enlighting to me, and even in winter one sniff of this perfume, I feel i am transported back to the summer.
=Would I recommend=
I would highly recommend this perfume, although I would say it is a light, but floral perfume, and to try out before you buy, as perfume does smell differently on individuals.
=Price and Availability=
This can be purchased from Supermarkets, Chemists, Amazon, Perfume Shop and a whole host of retailers, you can purchase a 50ml bottle and a 100ml bottle, and prices start at around £13 depending on where you purchase from.
Cacharel Anais Anais Eau de Toilette Spray
This review is about Cacharel Anais Anais Eau de Toilette Spray for women.
About the perfume
I have been a fan of the perfume "Anais Anais " for many many years. This perfume has fantastic staying power! If I spray it on my coat, the fragrance seems to stay for days and days! The perfume manufacturer is Cacharel Parfums from Paris and the perfume has been made in Paris.
The design of the bottle
The design of the bottle is very standard. It is a bottle which has a white bottom portion made of glass and the top portion is shiny silver and round and is made of plastic. The spray nozzle I very intact and you have you make a little bit of suttle effort to spray yourself. Once you open the bottle of perfume, the manufacturer indicates that it has a expiry date of 24 months from opening.
The smell of the perfume
The smell of Cacharel Anais Anais is very flowery. The heart notes are jasmine, lilly and musk. It is a very nice perfume and I like to wear this perfume in winter as it reminds me of the summer!
A 50ml bottle of Cacharel Anais Anais costs £19.99 and a 100ml bottle of Cacharel Anais Anais costs £53.50 at the perfume shop. I would definitely recommend Cacharel Anais Anais because it is a brilliant perfume and it not that expensive!
I hope you enjoyed reading my review. I have also posted this review on Cioa under my same username Angela150.
Just after Christmas I was in my local Boots browsing the sale items. I was attracted to a box containing several well known brands of miniature perfumes including a tiny bottle of Anais Anais. A close friend always wears this perfume and it smells lovely on her, so I was keen to try it for myself.
Anais Anais is from the French house of Cacharel who also produce upmarket clothing. The company was created by Jean Bousquet in 1962 in Nimes. The perfume is said to represent purity and innocence.
My small bottle is white opaque glass with a tiny silver stopper. The ;larger bottles are also made of white glass but have a white plastic pull of top and are not so attractive as far as I am concerned. The larger bottles have a spray nozzle. The bottle is very feminine and has pictures of lilies on its label.
This is a very sweet, floral fragrance. The top notes are hyacinth, orange blossom, lavender and bergamot. The middle notes are jasmine, carnation, tuberose and iris and the base notes are leather, sandalwood, amber and patchouli. This is a perfume with reasonable staying power, although it doesn't last all day on me as some other perfumes do.
I really wanted to like this perfume and fully expected I would do. It smells lovely on my friend and is her signature scent. However I am aware that perfumes can smell very differently on each person. I have been really disappointed with this perfume. It is just far too sweet and floral heavy on my skin. Although this is aimed at younger women; to me it smells like something a very elderly person would wear. It certainly doesn't have any hint of the light and sophisticated fragrance I was hoping for.
If you want to try this for yourself then it is widely available. In Boots a 30 ml bottle will cost you £14.99. It is also available in 50 and 100ml sizes. Unfortunately this is not one for me and I have given the rest of my bottle to my friend.
Anais Anais is a fragrance for women that is light and floral, lasts well and is a perennial favorite.
Anais Anais was one of the first perfumes I bought for myself, the fragrance itself was launched in 1978. I loved the fresh, light, floral scent back then and I still love it now. The longevity of the fragrance suggests that other feel the same way.
The Eau de Parfum has an RRP of £52 for 50ml, so it isn't a cheap purchase, but the fragrance lasts longer in this form and is my preferred option.
The perfume is not overpowering, it contains notes of lilly of the valley, jasmine, cedar, leather and fresh cut flowers.
I find it instantly recognizable, perhaps because I'm so familiar with it, but I will continue to wear it as it doesn't get dated and fits into my collection of perfumes well, providing me with a light option that is suitable for the office, whilst also being sophisticated enough to be worn in the evening, or on a special occasion.
The bottle is white glass with a lily on the front. Silver colored bands around the bottle add a touch of contrast making this an attractive item to have on display.
In summary, this is a fragrance for a classy lady who likes light, floral, classic fragrances.
I used to really love Anaia Anais by Cacheral and although I still have a small bottle of the eau de toilette, I rarely use it these days. The packaging is rather pretty and feminine looking and the bottle is basically white with delicate pictures of lily of the valley. The bottle comes in a cardboard box with the same pictures on the outside. The bottle shape itself is quite plain looking and coloured basically in off white. Mine is the 50ml sized bottle with the spray and I am sure I paid around about £12 for this sized bottle, though as I have had it some time, I may be way off now as far as price is concerned.
It still smells quite fresh and for the proposes of this review I have sprayed it a few times recently just to remind myself of its fragrance and how long it lasts on my skin.
The dominant smell of this scent is definitely flowers, specifically lily of the valley, jasmine, gardenia and cedar. The smell is one of freshly cut flowers and it is incredibly strong when it's first sprayed, to the point that it actually catches in your nose and the back of the throat.
My mum really loves this perfume and I must say I think it is possibly more marketed towards the more mature ladies, rather then younger generation. The fragrance itself lasts for an impressively long time and the smell doesn't change or adapt to my skin when I wear it. The smell is exactly the same several hours after application as it was when I first applied it - the only difference is that it does calm down, eventually.
The bottle is pretty though but the smell is just too floral and slightly sweet for me personally and it's not one of my favourites, hence its relegation to the back of my perfume drawer.

I have fond memories of Anais Anais, by Caherel as it was the first perfume that I had given to me and I was very excited about being grown up enough to wear it. You can currently purchase Anais Anais from most departments stores and Amazon have a Eau de Toilette Spray 100 ml for sale at £33.95 (December 2012).
The Eau de Toilette comes in a cylindrical bottle that is white and decorated with soft pastel flowers, it has a pull off opaque lid and a vaporiser spray nozzle to dispense the product.
The Eau de Toilette has tops notes of orange blossom and hyacinth, middle notes of sweet rose, white lily and jasmine and base notes of amber and sandal wood. It is a very feminine and floral Eau de Toilette and it has a delicate scent that lasts well throughout the day.
I wear Anais Anais only occasionally now, and mostly in the summer months, it is a favourite of mine and I will continue to wear it probably until I am an old lady! I would recommend this Eau de Toilette to people who like soft feminine and florally scents and it also makes a good first Eau de Toilette for teenagers, as its young and fresh, lasts well, is fairly priced and smells great.
