Notes: Muscs, Almond, Roses, Cream
Aspects: Fresh, Gourmand, Ambrosial, Refined
Inspired by the redolent imageries of Sophia Coppola's film 'Marie Antoinette', Dauphine is a clean, ideal, fresh skin scent, pink and cream and white all over. This scent has notes of pink, full blown rose; milky, fresh, sweet almond; and a reveille of innocent, airy musks. This scent is sweet, but not in a lurid, hard-candy-way; it's sweet like fresh, cream-filled, rosewater-scented pastries.
Innocent, but not immature; quiet, never cloying: this charming and refined scent is superlatively, incandescently, and, quite simply, very, very pretty.
|"I was about half in love with her by the time we sat down. That's the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty... you fall half in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are. "
J. D. Salinger
Divinely innocent, incandescently pretty.

One of my friends wears the "Smokers" fragrance from this brand and he smells really, really good, so I ended up buying the sampler from this brand. I work in art publishing and I'm usually drawn to things for my wardrobe that are simple and strong and not sentimental. And I usually shop masculine fragrances first because I tend to like woody fragrances over florals. So all that being said I expected Dauphine would be my least favorite in the sampler as it's described as "pretty" and rosy. It's actually perfect. I barely read rose, it's there but it's not sweet. If anything it's like smelling a real rose that doesn't have a lot of scent, if that makes sense. It has that fresh plant quality. It's the opposite of a "tea rose" or rose fragrance oil, which to me always smell musty. It's a great fragrance for daytime and at work because it has a kind of empowering clarity to it. The rollerball is great for applying to elbows but in the winter I tend to spray more on clothes, so I also got the large spray size and they're both good formats.

Amazing and sophisticated feminine scent. Sweet but not cloying, addictive. I have a lot of fragrances and this is one of my favorites.

I bought this perfume based on the reviews and an article I read about unusual and unique perfumes and I'm so glad I did. Dauphine is exactly as described in the reviews so I won't say the same thing again here but what I will add is that I love this perfume because it doesn't smell like anything else out there. It smells like another time, it's sophisticated and it's not overpowering. I've had this for about a week and have been stopped three times and told I smell amazing. Women and men love this scent. With Dauphine I received a sample of Lartigue and I IMMEDIATELY ordered that! That smells like sunshine and peaches in a bottle, almost impossible to describe but when my husband smelled that on me he said I smelled like a sexy peach pie, which is a good way to describe it.. Lartique is amazing as well and I can't wait until it arrives. Something tells me eventually I will own all of the perfumes (except for smokers perfume ; ) Give it a try!

A beautiful and clean scent. Smelling it brings to mind the suggestion of white cream, roses, and soap.

This is my first daily perfume, and I love it! It's not too strong and overpowering, and it makes me smile everytime I smell it. Which application method is best? Spritzing or roll-on?

Top notes of sweet almond that burns off to a fresh, clean floral - if pink had a scent, it would be Dauphine. It's Chanel No. 5's cool granddaughter.

This is a lovely skin scent that simply smells like clean and pure femininity. It doesn't project much but is not meant to do so. This is a scent for the wearer. It makes me think of the innocence and sweetness of a female child kept clean and safe by a loving mother. Simply delightful--thank you, Goest! Additionally, the perfume was beautifully packaged and included a free tote and a sample of Silent Film (another love for me). I cannot recommend this brand strongly enough. Goest is a treasure.

One spray of Dauphine on my wrist, and a beautiful scene appeared before me. I love the rose scent in this fragrance. It's not sticking your face into the rose, but rather a rose garden off in the distance with a cool breeze delivering their sweet, fresh scent gently toward you. It has a beautiful effect, and I find it a very uplifting scent. I imagine this might be how Marie Antoinette could have smelled after walking the gardens of Versailles and enjoying a delicate almond cream pastry.

I found this gem of a smell almost 7 years ago @ a craft show in Detroit. I instantly fell in love and it became "my smell". After it was gone, I searched and found it at a tiny botique in Royal Oak, but they stopped selling it after I went through it. I could not remember how to spell and then it came to me last week! Thank god!! I'm obsessed with clean, soap smells and this is perfect blend. I love the roller and will definitely buy more.

This is the perfect perfume for folks who don't like perfume. It's sweet but not cloying. Perfectly subtle and light.
