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 believe this cologne is unisex. I purchased it in the women's section, but it smells perfect on my husband.

Blind buy and it smells amazing! Sophisticated and creamy fragrance. When I spray it on my wrist, I find myself smelling my wrist through the day.

I love this fragrance. It is soft and elegant. I pair it with the body/bath oil and body lotion.

Mature Grape-Like Scent!
sarahco from Indiana
I purchased this a week after I tried it the first time. the longevity is INSANE on this. my boyfriend absolutely loves it. for anyone saying it's "old lady like" please smell it for yourself before you trust a review! I'm only 20 and this smells like a sexy grape jolly rancher to me! it spritz's so nicely as well. the whole thing is just a masterpiece!
Marie from Fl
It smelled ok in the bottle but once I put it on it made me smell so bad, like a grandma-ish but not in a "rich cool grandma" way. Also my cat didn't approve this at all lol
Madamoiselle Leia from Sparks, Nevada
Excellent for anytime anywhere. Never overpowering yet when it lingers, it is a very welcome event. Many compliments just passing by somebody. Warm and enchanting. L'interdit means the forbidden, however it is certainly not in my collection…i will always have a bottle with me
I love L'Interdit!
Linda Thompson from Belle, MO
I think it's delightful. I have already gotten so many compliments on it. Several have asked what it is and where I got it. I plan to purchase again for myself and get an extra as a gift.
Myra's Recommended Fragrance for Fall and Winter!
Myra Ho from Lynnwood, WA
Fresh floral and woody scent lighten up my daytime and nighttime experiences. The weight of the scent appears to be not so heavy but still carries itself throughout the day until the evening. This is a great scent for both fall and winter seasons in which the warmth of this signature fragrance brings forth the warmed and rich atmosphere to my body and the cold surroundings of these seasons.
If you want to smell like an obnoxious old lady…
Kylie from Alabama
I almost blind bought this perfume because of the reviews, but definitely read the negative ones before you buy. I luckily received a sample size of this and was so excited to try it, but the reviews stating it's a VERY old lady type of floral scent are absolutely correct. It's nearly impossible to spray an amount on that isn't overwhelming or that doesn't give other people headaches…I wanted to love it due to the history with Audrey Hepburn, but it's honestly one of the strongest, worst florals I've tried. If you've ever encountered a lady and thought "Oh my gosh she needs to lighten up on the nasty perfume"….she was probably wearing this.
Givenchy perfume smellls like faint cherry wood.
Rachel D. from New York, New York
Would not purchase again. Perfume scent was very faint
Lasts all day
Mrs Ortega from Dallas, Tx
VERY sexy smell !!! This fragrance is very soft and not too strong. It's like a feminine perfume with a touch of maybe masculine, its a wonderful mix of it :)
I dont get the hype
unicorn_mermaid from Los Angeles
I bought this as a blind buy due to the rave reviews and I regret it so much. I'm not sure if it's my skin, but I did not smell flowers it just smelled like musk and very strong it reminded me like a typical "old lady" smell such as white diamonds. I don't see how this perfume gets people compliments .I wanted to love this so bad,, but didn't work out. ..please smell it before you buy.
Obsessed is an understatement

I found this scent, like many others, on social media and I wanted to love it because it was Audrey Hepburn's signature. I waited until I could smell it in store because some reviews had me wary due to their "powdery" comments. The Eau de Parfum does definitely have a slightly more powdery smell than the Eau de Toilette, but it doesn't last. I'd definitely recommend a wear test because at first it was a woody orange (which I loved) and then eventually it matured to a grape smell (still love). Either way, this is my new favorite perfume and my new signature scent. It lasts SO long and I simply can't get enough of it!

I like the scent, I do feel is more for the Fall season it has a strong smell and latest a long time. I'm more like a floral/fruity type of person when it some for my perfumes but if you like the woody scents more then you should definitely try this one.

This perfume is more on the floral side. If you like floral perfumes this is for you.
Luxury in a bottle
ladynessy from undisclosed
L'Interdit Eau de Parfum by Givenchy was originally created back in 1957 for the beautiful and iconic Audrey Hepburn. Now, decades later, I'm sure the formula has changed, but even if it's just a bit like it was back in her time, I can see why she loved it so much. I've never had any fragrance that smelled luxurious, until I recieved this. Everything about this really is luxurious; the packaging, the bottle, the way it spritzes, and the fragrance itself are absolutely lovely. It smells heavenly. You can definitely smell floral notes, but it also has some woody notes in it as well. I did see that it was described as being floral and woody with a hint of musk, so at first, I thought I would not enjoy it because I really don't like musky smells. To me, musk is overpowering and just is unpleasant. But I really loved this perfume. It has the perfect balance of floral, woody notes, and musk. It's light, floral, feminine, luxurious, and sensual. It also stays on and lasts a very long time. I sprayed some on a shirt I had in my closet and put it back. A few days later, I grabbed it, sniffed it, and it still smelled like I had just spritzed it. And the way the fragrance sprays out is amazing, too. Usually, with cheap perfumes, the spray nozzle can make it come out in thick globs, but this delivers a fine mist that covers a wide area, so a little goes a long way. Just one or two spritzes is enough for all day wear. I am absolutely in love with this scent. It's going to last me quite a while, but I can definitely see myself purchasing this when I run out because I do think I will make this my signature fragrance.

I love this perfume, I always been on the same line of fragrance like Miss Dior or flowerbomb, I love sweet girly fragrance. When I received this one I was a little worried about it. But surprisingly I love it, the smell is kind of sweet but more strong and sexy ( at least I feel like that) I been using it at night or when I'm on a date with my boyfriend.
feminine and classy

A new favorite of mine! This fragrance is very feminine and classy. Plus it's super long lasting which is something I always look for in fragrances. I would definitely buy this bottle over and over again!
Long Lasting but strong scent
leanak1020 from undisclosed
I received this complimentary from Influenster and Givenchy in exchange for my honest review.
At first glance, the packaging is beautiful. When I took a quick smell from the bottle, I was intrigued. When I wore this, the scent was very strong. The scent reminds me of something very formal and is not something I would wear as an everyday perfume. This would be more of a special occasion perfume for me. It is definitely very long lasting.

I honestly am not a huge fan of this scent. It smells older than what I generally wear if that makes sense. Its ok, just not something I love.
nancewantstodance from undisclosed
Let me start off by saying I really love the bottle itself. It's gorgeous and the cap has the most satisfying click. The pink looks great on my gold tray on my vanity.
Having said all this, I do love the scent. I normally prefer to wear much fresher scents but I gave this a try and it didn't disappoint. It is floral but instead of being a daytime type floral scent, it is deep and warm. It lasts foreeeever too. You only need to apply once. It's definitely going to be my nighttime floral go to.
Long Lasting Scent

The reason I am not giving this fragrance 5 stars is because I like more fresh/ floral scents. A little goes a very long way. All you really need is one spray. It's a very strong distinctive smell. Somewhere in between floral and a woody rustic smell. My mother and aunt absolutely loved it! If you like more strong scents I highly recommend!!
sruj_v from undisclosed
This perfume is absolutely beautiful. It has a floral scent with very soft tones. It lasts me all day and the packaging is super cute. I enjoy it and receive many compliments when I wear it! Would definitely recommend to those that like lighter scents.
love this scent!

I have no idea how to pronounce this perfume but that doesn't stop me from loving it! It has a great floral scent with hints of citrus. I only wish the name was a little easier to pronounce so when people ask me what I'm wearing I can tell them!
