AS the name suggests, Irresistible Givenchy Eau de Toilette is a magnetic perfume, creating a hypnotic trail of luscious blackcurrants and rose accord, stirred with notes of cedar wood. Created by leading Master Perfumers Fanny Bal, Dominique Ropion and Anne Flipo, the perfume is subtlety nuanced with both flavours, stopping itself from becoming overly powdery and synthetic.
The perfume opens with a sharp blackcurrant note, conjuring images of the freshly picked fruit mixed in with crisp, bubbling champagne, rich and refreshing. The long-lasting scent dries into heavenly glimmers of rose flower, deliciously opposed with notes of white musk.
The blush-pink perfume is encased in a transparent, square-shaped bottle, which almost disguises the graphic back, carved with prism-like incisions, reflecting the unexpected smells that lie within the perfume. Both fruity and floral, this is a lovely scent – perfect for many occasions.
