Givenchy | L'Interdit Eau de Parfum: Review
New from Givenchy comes a new fragrance inspired by the original L'Interdit Eau de Parfum. Created and worn exclusively by Audry Hepburn for a year before its release in 1957, L'Interit was a delicate floral with notes of rose, jasmine, and violet. Now updated for 2018 and described as a "fearless classic", L'Interdit Eau de Parfum ($112 for 80 ml) features notes of orange blossom, jasmine, vetiver, and patchouli.

The Bottle:
The Givenchy L'Interdit fragrance comes in a simple and elegant squarish glass bottle with soft round corners. The neck of the bottle is adorned with a grosgrain ribbon secured with a small black metal plaque etched with the iconic "4G" Givenchy logo. The perfume itself is tinted with a soft tea color.

The Scent:
Opening on a whiff of sour cherry and juicy pear, L'Interdit is a light and feminine white floral highlighted by notes of tuberose and jasmine. The fragrance has decent sillage and wear but the base notes of patchouli and vetiver are pretty subtle. With the original 1957 L'Interdit created for Audrey Hepburn, it's not hard to see how even the 2018 version beautifully embodies the chicness and elegance of the iconic actress. I don't think the fragrance is anything super revolutionary or unique but for those that love a classic light floral, it is definitely worth trying.

Top Notes: Bergamot, Pear, Sour Cherry
Middle Notes: Tuberose, Orange Blossom, Jasmine Sambac
Base Notes: Patchouli, Vetiver, Ambroxan, Caramel, Vanilla
