Key Notes of L'Interdit

What Does L'Interdit Smell Like

L'Interdit by Givenchy opens with a noticeable poppy note, giving it a floral scent with a slightly sweet undertone. This initial aroma quickly develops a fruitiness that is not overpowering but adds a playful layer of complexity to the perfume.

As the scent transitions, it becomes richer and deeper, dominated by the intoxicating sweet scent of tuberose. The white-floral aroma of this flower is mingled with a hint of orange blossom, adding a touch of citrusy freshness and lightness to the heart of the perfume. The tuberose and orange blossom combination provides the main body of the fragrance, creating a sweet and floral core with a subtle fresh undertone.

As the perfume continues to develop on the skin, it settles into its base notes. The scent of patchouli is faint but provides a quality of earthiness that grounds the sweetness and florality of the perfume. It is subtly combined with a hint of vetiver, giving the perfume a dry, woody edge. This creates a perfect contrast with the sweet, floral heart and adds to the overall complexity of the perfume. The base notes lend a mild richness and depth to the fragrance but do not overpower the sweet floral core, resulting in a scent that is floral, sweet, slightly fruity, fresh, and powdery.

Review of L'Interdit

L'Interdit by Givenchy is a perfume with a necessary duality in its character - an engaging blend of floral sweetness with a powdery undertone. A perfume that is likely to be more appealing to women, it can make its wearer feel fresh and vibrant. Predominantly a floral scent, it is tinged with an element of sweet fragrance, giving it a sophisticated air that is not overpowering.

This Givenchy creation shows a remarkable potency in fall and spring, with its scent resonating particularly well in the cool, crisp air. It is versatile enough, however, to be worn comfortably in the summer and winter as well. The scent is subtle enough for daily wear or a casual day out. Yet, it has a certain assertiveness that makes it suitable for a business environment or an evening event.

The perfume's longevity is substantial, ensuring that it does not vanish within a few hours of application. However, it is not so overpowering that it lingers uncomfortably long or becomes too intense. This makes it a good value for those seeking a long-lasting perfume.

Though the scent is predominantly feminine, its woody, creamy base gives it a touch of intrigue, making it more than just another floral perfume. While it resonates well with a wide range of ages, it seems to find more resonance among mature women.

However, the synthetic element of the perfume might seem a bit off-putting to some. For those seeking a fully natural scent, this may be a bit of a letdown. Nonetheless, L'Interdit by Givenchy is a perfume of considerable charm and elegance, with a distinctive character that can impress a wide range of wearers.
