Perfume Review: Very Irresistible Givenchy

Because Givenchy launches an intense version of it’s Very Irresistible perfume this March (this is the one that features Liv Tyler in the ads), I decided to review the original version before I do the new one.

Very Irresistible is primarily a rose scent – the notes are Centifolia Rose, Peony Rose, Fantasia Rose, Passion Rose, Emotion Rose, Verbena Leaf, Star Anise.

The thing is that even with tons of rose notes in the juice, I don’t smell a primarily rose scent when I spray this!  Aspects of rose, yes.  Pure rose like in a Jo Malone or Lancome scent?  No.

What I love about this scent is that it’s a more sophisticated floral scent that’s appropriate for the night time even though most florals are day time scents.  It’s a strong mix too, because just one spritz can last the whole entire day.

The top notes of the scent feature a leafy currant, while the drydown is curiously sweet, almost like vanilla.  I say that it’s curious because there are no sugar notes listed, but they some how come out.

Because this is a powdery floral scent, I prefer not to wear it at work as I find it to be too strong, but it’s perfect for the weekends.

Review on the Very Irresistible Intense coming next week.

    I love this perfume, and where it every day, (soemtimes I where a differnt shade just to change things up a bit. ) for the last 3-4 years. got it when it first came out and have loved it since. But you should be carfull when putting some on as it can become veary strong in scent. I like the other version of this in the read bottle.

    I agree, Crystal, sometimes this can be super strong.
