Among the first perfume creations of the house of Givenchy stands the legendary scent of L’Interdit from 1957, dedicated to actress Audrey Hepburn as the most significant muse of this fashion designer.
In 2018, its new, modern version called L’Interdit Givenchy comes out, developed by perfumers Dominique Ropion, Anne Flipo and Fanny Bal as a floral-woody composition. The perfume is built on the basis of contrast between a bouquet of white flowers (including jasmine, tuberose and orange blossom) and intense woody and earthy notes of patchouli and vetiver. The concept behind the creation is the “thrill of the forbidden” and the challenge of crossing the line.
“A white floral exalted with a dark accord. The first resolutely underground flower.
The white notes – orange blossom, jasmin 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 of thick glass pays homage to the original shape with a more modern outline with the 4 G logo added to the black ribbon that encircles the neck. The face of the new L’Interdit release is actress Rooney Mara. Givenchy L’Interdit is available in 35, 50 and 80 ml Eau de Parfum.
