Givenchy Live Irresistible Eau de Parfum & Eau de Toilette: Review

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
Hi everyone, I hope your weekend is going well! Today I have two fun summer fragrances from Givenchy that I want to share with you. Sweet, fruity, and utterly irresistible, the Live Irresistible Eau de Parfum and Live Irresistible Eau de Toilette both make the perfect summer scent. To read a bit about each, click.......
Givenchy Live Irresistible Eau de Parfum & Eau de Toilette
The Bottle:
Both the Eau de Parfume and the Eau de Toilette versions of Live Irresistible come in a tall, three-sided bottle with a very unique appearance. The back sides of the bottle are pressed with a studded design, giving the fragrance a cool and edgy feel. The fragrance has a shiny silver top and it's capped with a clear acrylic cap. The Live Irresistible Eau de Parfum is tinted orange while the Eau de Toilette is tinted a pale shade of pink.

Givenchy Live Irresistible Eau de Parfum ($122 CAD for 75ml):

Top Notes: Pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine.
Heart Notes: Rose, pepper, passionfruit. 
Base Notes: Amber, musk, orris, vanilla, patchouli, praline.

Live Irresistible opens with a super juicy and sweet blend of citrus and passionfruit. The fragrance is very interesting in that when I sniff my skin up close, it smells differently than the scent that gets wafted in the air. On my skin, I detect a beautiful and sophisticated creamy rose while in the air, I pick up more of a fun and fruity blend. One spray goes a long way and the silage is great as well. The fragrance mellows out as the day progresses but it wears really well. To me, this is a very fun and summery sweet floral but it's also very feminine and sophisticated at the same time.

Givenchy Live Irresistible Eau de Toilette ($106 CAD for 75ml):

Top Notes: Pear, raspberry, pineapple. 
Heart Notes: Rose, pepper, red berries. 
Base Notes: Musk, white woods.

A sweeter and lighter take on the Eau de Parfum, Givenchy Live Irresistible Eau de Toilette opens with a lovely whiff of raspberry, which slowly fades to reveal a soft rosy center. The fragrance feels cooler than the Eau de Parfum, which has a creamier, more earthy undertone. This scent is ultimately similar to that of the Eau de Parfum, but I think the overall feel is lighter and more refreshing.
