The first daring fragrance from Givenchy called L’Interdit was created in 1957 was among the first fragrance creations from the house which was dedicated to actress Audrey Hepburn, the muse of the fashion designer and now in 2018, L’Interdit is created as a tribute to freedom. Givenchy has created a new L’Interdit fragrance inviting women to cross the line and discover the thrill of the forbidden, calling it ‘a new fearless classic’.
It is called a magnificent, fearless fragrance and devastatingly elegant, a new kind of femininity.
‘The intensity born of contrasts.
A forbidden blend of white flower and a dark accord
The shocking side of chic.’
Givenchy L’Interdit is created by master perfumers Domonique Ropion, Anne Flipo, and Fanny Bal. L’Interdit unveils a floral white bouquet of orange blossom, jasmine, and tuberose. In contrast, earthy dark tones emanate from the vetiver and patchouli.
‘L’Interdit serves as a catalyst, an enabler, a key to the door that opens into freedom. An empowering talisman on the road to experience and self-discovery. ‘
‘A white floral exalted with a dark accord. The first resolutely underground flower. The white notes – orange blossom, jasmine, and tuberose – are interlaced with darker more mysterious notes of vetiver and patchouli. A generous intense brightness that isn’t afraid of subversion. Unforgettable, intense, addictive, and fearlessly elegant. The shocking side of chic.’
The bottle design of Givenchy L’Interdit 2018 is a tribute to the original 1957 bottle, timeless and yet modern. It is strikingly sober, with a round squareness, a soft strength. At once simple, deeply feminine and soft in its invocation, it also has the elegance of being tied up with a sharp seal that binds the contrasting matte grosgrain bow and the shiny 4G logo. The box is black and white, bold, pure, and simple but inside, it is scarlet, daring, surprising, and carries the signature of Monsieur de Givenchy.
Givenchy L’Interdit is a very nice and interesting scent to me, white floral with very less sweetness. It is very well composed, combining classic femininity with freshness and sweetness. It is a classic, modernized tuberose fragrance which is beautifully creamy, smooth, long lasting, and not overpowering. The gourmand notes in it last for few minutes and then it is all bright, grown-up scent. This is perfect for day and night and for everyday wear. I have been wearing it to work every day since last week and really like this on me. Not overpowering and the lasting power is amazing.
Givenchy L’Interdit Eau de Parfum is available at Sephora Canada, Hudson’s Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart, and Holt Renfrew.
