It is no secret that I am a sucker for pretty packaging When I saw the relaunch of Givenchy's 'L'Interdit' I was head over heels for this beautiful looking perfume. So I just had to look into it further.. even though I really wasn't in need of another perfume in my collection.

Did you guys know that the original L'Interdit scent was created in the 50's for Audrey Hepburn and that she wore it a whole year before it was launched? Well, if the packaging alone wasn't enough for me to give it a try, then this fact was the final push. 

It finally joined my collection a couple of weeks ago and as you can imagine, the packaging didn't disappoint. While I was admiring it on my perfume display, I was very excited to see what the actual scent was like. I read before that it was a floral scent.. and most floral perfumes are too fresh for my liking. I like very deep, opulent and powdery smells. 

The scent completely surprised me. Yes, it has a floral tone, which later I read consists of orange blossom, tuberose, and jasmin. But there was something different about it. It also has this deep and intense side to it which is made out of vetiver and patchouli. Honestly a scent like no other I have tried before.

So if you are like me and you normally stay away from florals because you are scared they are too light, sweet or fresh.. give this one a try. I can already see myself wearing this all throughout the colder months. 

Have you tried it yet?
