Most Helpful Positive Review The perfect gift for any special occasion!
When it comes to my perfumes, I am very particular on what I like and don't like. But this one in particular really threw me off the curve, I am so in love with it! It makes me feel feminine, elegant and fearless! I Love the sweet and spicy smell. Perfect for special occasion, date night, or gala events. I wore it just about anywhere and I am constantly asked what do I have on. The women around me absolutely love it; not to mention, my husband is glued to me thanks to the smell! Let me be honest, I secretly have this fragrance on my wish list for the holidays! It's so different from all other perfumes I have, the smell is so amazing! I can see women over 30 wearing this fragrance! Even my mom in her late 60's loved the scent! Makes a great gift for a birthday, anniversary or special occasion. I received this sample in exchange for my honest review but I saw the bottle at the store and I loved the pretty design. It also lasts all day which is a huge plus!
Most Helpful Critical Review Long lasting strong fragrance
Givenchy has created another very distinctive perfume. It is a very mature smell that I feel is geared to older , sophisticated women. It has a deep wooded scent with a hint of white flower, almost a vanilla type scent.
After a small squirt, the fragrance immediately filled the room it was so powerful. I must say, the scent stayed with me all day and stayed almost as potent as when I first applied it.
However, I really did not care for the smell. I like very light citrus scents and this in my opinion, was VERY overpowering. I must say several people commented on it, and the reaction was mixed. People either loved it or REALLY disliked it.
All in all, this is a scent that a person MUST try before buying as it is very particular.

I love the intense version way more than the regular one, this one is sweeter and it doesnt smell as woody, Im just in love with it and it lasts forever on your skin
Great projection and lasting power
thelemongirl from undisclosed
This projects really well, once you spray it it fills up the room. It last a really long time too. It is sweet to my nose but in a grown up way, nothing bubbly about it. You can definitely detect tuberose and orange blossom, dries down to a well blended patchouli. It is sweet but not gourmand. Very classy.
Emily from Virginia
It's the perfect scent for the girls who like something warm and sexy but with a touch of soft florals. I compare it to Gucci Guilty but for the soft woman. It was originally made for Audrey Hepburn. "Forbidden". I love it!
vanilla scented long lasting
thestephanie013 from undisclosed
I really loved this perfume!! It has vanilla scent which is something I look for in all perfume. It lasted me all day but without being overpowering and overwhelming
okallie from undisclosed
Ive been wearing this perfume for about a week, so I can confidently say that Im a big fan. Right away I could pick up on the notes of orange blossom, vanilla, and patchouli. The lasting power is definitely something - I spritzed once on my neck and once on my wrists which I dabbed together, and when I woke up the next day I could tell it was still there. Truly a wonderfully balanced mix of spicy, sweet, and warm.
Perfect Everyday scent with some pizazz

I like this smell
brookeg53 from undisclosed
I really enjoy this smell! Its not too overwhelming and stays on all day! I do tend to stick with floral scents
Amichelle from Miami, Fl
This was not a hit for me. Ordered it online based solely off the reviews. It smelled great in the bottle but I guess it didn't mix with my body chemistry. By the end of the day I swear I smelled like a 50 year old bottle
of my grandma's White Shoulder perfume. Needless
to say, I returned it.
ivyc21 from undisclosed
This perfume smells so good, I usually use fresh perfume but this one is more sweet with notes of orange, vanilla & wood. I would def buy it again! The presentation is cool too, bottle is a bit different than usual perfume bottles
My new favorite perfume
ayayabdelrehem from undisclosed
I received this perfume in a voxbox and I was extremely excited. I immediately spritzed it and I literally smelled amazing all day. One spritz goes a long way. Its the perfect blend of musky and sweet with a hint of floral. This perfume is very long lasting on skin and on fabric. I would def purchase and recommend to all my friends
zinayahari10 from undisclosed
if I could give this 0 stars I would the smell is horrible! I did not like the way the way this smelled at all. definitely will not be recommending to anybody nor will I be purchasing this in the future. not a good scent. if you like musky, antique, woody smells then this is perfect for you.
warm and fierce
lavidalydia from undisclosed
I received the new L'Interdit Eau de Parfum Intense It smells exactly as described, some citrus some rose some vanilla some patchouli. Its woods, warm, musky almost with a sweetness. A yummy smell.
genesisu4f24 from undisclosed
I was very impressed to receive a full size bottle of this perfume and not just a sample bottle. It gives me a luxurious feeling when I smell this perfume. You can smell the woody floral and musky notes it gives. These scents aren't typically for me but I will definitely just gift it to my mom. The packaging is very nice I do have to say.
she grown GROWN
zakeevar from undisclosed
I was lucky enough to receive this courtesy of Influenster & baby this one is not for the children! She grown , grown. Im talking date night , sugar daddy from Wall Street grown.
All jokes aside the notes are :
-jasmine and tuberose .
-vetiver and patchouli.
Very much musky , maybe even woodsy in my opinion. Now while I want to smell like a lady , she may be a tad bit to grown for my liking however Im down for something new.
cruz3578 from undisclosed
So happy I received this product as a free sample, and let me tell you this perfume smell so good. It was a wood and flooring smell that you will fall in love with this perfume. The smell last for so long also.
lovely warm scent
kayluxmakeup from undisclosed
I did not expect to be getting this perfume! It is a lovely scent but I am not sure if it is for me yet. I am a fan of unisex scents that lean more masculine. This is a dark and warm scent with a sweetness to it. I am not too great with describing what I smell lol its hard! It is a very powerful staying power and will last all day. If you put it on over a body lotion it will last longer. Its definitely not my new favorite but Im going to try it a few times to see if it grows on me. I received this complementary in the mail from Influenster in return for my honest review.
nicolew2 from undisclosed
This was a very intense, musky scent. I tend to go for lighter, more floral scents, and I found this was a very mature and heavy scent. The bottle was beautiful though.
cindy625 from undisclosed
The packaging sells it as a dark masculine scent. But its actually quite pleasant, very pleasant and not overpowering. Very natural soft and sweet scent. Would wear for colder months but not sure if it would be suited for warmer months.
aracelysandoval1 from undisclosed
This is a woody, floral scent, which I think is good for a night out. I dont think it should be used daily since it very strong. I sprayed it once on a piece of paper and it stayed for the whole day. I could smell it even when the paper was feet away from me. Overall, it is a nice perfume and I really like it.
heeeeyoby from undisclosed
When I received the perfume, I was instantly drawn to the glossy black packaging. It was simple, but sleek. I knew that the quality of the fragrance would be fine because Givenchy is...Givenchy . I knew that the test would come down to whether or not I liked the fragrance. Its something that Im not sure that I would instantly gravitate towards if I was in the store fragrance shopping. However, I really like it! Its kind of feminine with a bit of the edge, so it comes off slightly masculine (?). I believe that this is because it has a floral base mixed with some kind of herb that I cant place. Either way, it lasts all day and I received some compliments as well. Id say that this is a solid fragrance!
Not what I expected
shakirardom from undisclosed
After taking the bottle out of the box my first thought was how nice and sleek it looked. A tiny bit heavy but Im not complaining, just giving details lol. In my opinion the bottle came off to me as a little masculine and I assumed the scent would be woody, strong and overpowering. This is just my opinion and yours could be different. After spraying it onto my arm, the first few things I picked up on were a nice soft & sweet scent, with a dash of vanilla as well. It was definitely not overpowering. I read what was included toward the scent after, I like to try and guess them first. I tried this on at home and it lasted all day, I also wore it to work. And after completing a 8 hour shift of running around i was still able to smell it! I am not sure if others were able to smell it due to the mask. But Im excited to continue using this everyday!!

The scent starts out smelling fruity and almost like candy (definitely the orange blossom) and then gives way to a warm floral and vanilla scent mixed with a bit of something else thats hard to describe (I feel like it could be the toasted sesame but Im not super sure). It is very long lasting as I was still able to smell it after a whole day had gone by. However, towards the end, the only scent that is really noticeable is a subtle warm leathered vanilla scent. The bottle design is very luxurious, sleek, modern. Usually, I dont really like vanilla scents, but this scent blends the vanilla very well with the floral ingredients so that the vanilla scent is subtle, pleasant, and not too overpowering. Also one spritz goes a long way (quite literally too considering someone sitting across the room from me was able to smell it a couple minutes after I sprayed it).
L'Interdit Eau de Parfum Intense
_lizat from undisclosed
This perfume is definitely bold & intense, but in a good way. The spray starts off with an aromatic, citrus floral scent and then hits you with a subtle, sweet vanilla. It's a very deep, rich, & warm fragrance perfect for the cozy weather coming up. One spritz was enough for me to dab on the wrists and neck. Personally, I'm not a woody vanilla scent kind of gal when it comes to perfumes, but I sort of like this. I would have given this a 3.5 stars (again, just because vanilla fragrances are not my preference), but rounded up to 4 instead. I think it grew on me throughout the few days that I used it so far. On another note, the packaging is nice too. The bottle design really captures the essence of the perfume.
