Goest Perfumes is a fragrance house in Los Angeles, California. Our offerings are unisex fragrances with an intuitive aesthetic. Each scent is uniquely composed to work with, not against, the scent of the human body. We consider each of these more effective beautifiers on a deep, real level than the typical cosmetic. You will notice the difference in effect, and so will others.
Notes: Woods, Peach, Citrus, Sun, Air
Aspects: Succulent, Bright, Modern, Fresh
Lartigue opens up on the skin with a bright, airy, and succulent show of abstract fruits and superfresh citrus. It progresses to reveal a green, clean, and joyous heart backed by a base of watery woods and clean earth. Inspired by the beatific and eternal Riviera portrayed in the images of 20th-century master photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue, this Goest scent celebrates all in life that is liberated, enthusiastic, and on-the-spot.
Forget what you know about usual "sport" scents, those brash and metallic colognes that are the olfactory equivalent of shoulder armor, spandex, and a helmet. Lartigue, by happy contrast, is modern, clean, and elegant, and cuts a handsome figure clothed in pristine tennis whites.
A precious bottle of sun, swim, and sail.
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.
Divinely innocent, incandescently pretty.
Notes: Sweet Smoke, Dirt, Bitter Chocolate
Aspects: Earthy, Animalic, Dark, Vast
Jackal opens with the scent of dry, powdered chocolate tempered with a hint of beckoning, mouthwatering vanilla. As it settles into the skin, the most darkly charismatic side of patchouli appears, cloaked in a multifaceted, sensual smokiness of many associations: the sweet, swooning scent of toasted tobacco - the bitter, magnetic smell of money - faraway fires in the woods.
This bottomless scent is the epitome of the anti-perfume. Though it has an original glamour, it is not the cosmetic powder-cloud of classic scents of fashion; and though it is natural and earthy, it has nothing of the biting, traditional terpenes of the hitchhiker's tonic. Jackal's essential effect is that of your own skin, only sexier; it is the essential effect of you, made simply more magnetic. Jackal wears very close to the skin and easily enhances other perfumes.
Mad, bad, and dangerous to know.
Notes: Woods, Tanned Leather, Oakmoss, Herbs, Citrus
Aspects: Vigorous, Adventuresome, Neat
Grand Tour makes an excellent first impression, opening with a burst of traditional aromatic herbs and five delicious citrus fruits. As it wears, the excitement at the heart of this scent is revealed: fresh and pure sweet basil and a smooth, abstracted cedar note combine for a distinctive and energetic spiciness that revs at 4000 RPM. This effect is backed by a foundation of well-tanned leathers and elegant oakmoss for a long-wearing and sensual yet subtle sillage.
Although the classic structure of Grand Tour alludes to great bygone masculine fragrances, this scent's not just for the boys. On women, it's incredibly sexy - think a well-heeled, natural woman in a crisp men's white oxford shirt.
Fresh and invigorating for day, sensual and elegant for night: man or woman, Grand Tour is built to be your constant signature.
Sport, spirit, and straight-out polish.
Notes: A Crushed Stem, Soil, Herbs, Hay, Citrus
Aspects: Green, Sunshot, and Blooming
Realism opens with a buzzing, resinous green swell of grasses, herbs, and blossoms giving off their freshness in the heat of the sun. Supported by damp petals and black soil, the soft and expansive smell of crushed stems from a fruit tree fills the heart of this scent, breathing a sublime greenspace for hours. In the drydown, a sleepy accord of ultraprecious hay absolute and quiet cedar. Unisex, and no less gorgeous for it.
A green tableau in four dimensions: bring the outdoors in.
Notes: Vetiver, Vanilla, Leather, Smoke.
Aspects: Mysterious, Powdery, Brutal, Nostalgic.
Silent Films opens with an aromatic burst of old-world lavender and mint, and settles to reveal a hypnotic and cool heart of vanilla and black spicy earth; before the night is gone, it gives way to a smoldering, powdery, and purely addictive dry down of seductive leathers, musks, and smoke.
Dark, cool, and narcotic, this animal is cast in polar absolutes: no fruit; no flowers; no noise. This perfume is not as a warm and rosy body itself, but like an uncanny image of the body, a mercurial impersonation--almost as if in a mirror, or projected on a screen…where black is very black indeed, and white shines out like silver.
A fragrance in black and white.
