A Guide on How to Choose Your Givenchy Perfume
Before you decide on perfume, you must consider the time of day you’ll wear it, the season, special occasions, and alternatives. Why an alternative? You may want a specific Givenchy perfume, but it’s sold out or no longer made. In those cases, you’ll want some backup options.
When it comes to perfume, you’ll want to have one for each season but also day and night. The perfume you wear in the winter will smell different than it does in the spring or summer. The time-of-day matter too. You don’t want to wear a heavy perfume to work or daytime events; these are better suited for nighttime use.
I’ve found Givenchy perfumes like L’Interdit Eau de Parfum, Amarige, and Very Irresistible suit all seasons and occasions. The perfumes are intense enough to last throughout the day and night but won’t cause headaches or dirty looks.
For those fall, winter, and spring months, I’ve preferred Hot Couture, Ysatis, and Dahlia Divin. These scents tend to last longer and smell the best when it’s cooler. I didn’t notice any difference if I wore it during the day or night either. Both times of the day I only received compliments and no complaints of any overwhelming scents.
Ange ou Demon, L’Interdit Eau de Parfum Intense, L’Interdit Eau de Parfum Rouge, and Organza were my favorite scents for fall and winter. These scents all have vanilla, spicy, white floral, or woody notes that make them ideal for those cold winter days. While I did try them during the day, I wouldn’t recommend wearing them in the daytime. These scents are best suited for night events because of their intensity.
Some alternatives I found for Givenchy are My Way by Giorgio Armani for L’Interdit Eau de Parfum, Benetton Giallo Woman by Benetton for Irresistible, and Susan by Al-Rehab closely resembles Amarige.
I Am by Eisenberg has almost identical notes to Hot Couture, White Diamonds by Elizabeth Taylor for Ysatis, Wild Elixir by Shakira for Dahlia Divin, and Love Generation Rock by Jeanne Arthes for Ange ou Demon.
Daarej pour Femme by Rasasi is a good option for L’Interdit Eau de Parfum Intense, Una Senses by Natura for L’Interdit Eau de Parfum Rouge, and Black by M. Micallef for Organza.
What To Expect From A Givenchy Perfume
Some of the bottle designs of Givenchy stand out amongst the competition. For example, Organza resembles an hourglass, Ange ou Demon resembles an ombre teardrop, and Ysatis has a cylinder shape with some squareness and a unique cap that looks like a shard of glass. However, the others are pretty standard in shape and style, which does make them underwhelming.
I’ve found the sillage of the perfumes to range from strong to enormous. This makes the scents pretty intense compared to other brands. Sometimes it can even cause a headache with how strong it is. This can be positive and negative. It’s great when you need a strong perfume but can make it difficult to wear in certain settings.
The longevity is similar. I’d say they are longer-lasting than most brands out there. I’d rate them from long-lasting to eternal. You can wash your clothes and still have a faint smell leftover.
The price value I’d rate them okay for the value. For a small .67oz rollerball, it typically costs around $34. If you want a larger size like 1.7oz, it can cost up to $93. The perfumes do last you won’t need much but compared to other luxury brands, they’re much more expensive.
