Rated 3.66 out of 5 stars
The initial scent is so light and playful, I thought of Dolce & Gabbana's L'impératrice which was the one I decided to get after spending what felt like forever in the fragrance department. Unfortunately, there were none available at the time. I made a list of favorites to look at because I wanted something like Tocca's Stella, a personal fave and I wish Ulta carried that line. However, L'interdit was the only one on my list I didn't find a tester of, and I was about to concede my quest for a new scent when I found the last rollerball of this one! I got it and I was not at all disappointed! I actually love that it is not a spray style and the transition from initial scent to where it settled was an intriguing one, and also surprising. I'm excited to see what it's like at the end. But everyone's skin picks up every perfume so differently, you always have to try it on you to see how it takes. It does not smell powdery or "too mature", but it is different. It's the one you notice at a party, not right away, in the spot light, but the one that seems to irresistibly pull your attention, no matter what you do. It's an incredible scent, but it's not a people-pleasurer nor the majority's cup of tea, and that's ok too. But if you have the chance, definitely check it out, it's unique
Product was fine; I'm giving this a poor rating because the packaging was done so poorly. The inner box in which it was sent was clearly reused and had black grimy hand prints on the exterior of the white box. The outer box was also clearly recycled which i normally wouldn't mind, but this time because the inner box was also so poorly done, thought I'd include this observation.

I tried this in store and enjoyed it so I bought the rollerball. I am happy with the amount of product in this rollerball. The perfume is supposed to start with pear and citron but it comes off as tart grape skins. It settles into orange blossom and other white florals but does not enter a headache inducing or nose tweaker phase. I don't smell much patchouli or heavy vetiver in this. It is a bit grainy at some point but I don't peg this as hippie-ish at all. This is a sophisticated perfume. Lasts for hours.

There wasn't a tester in store and the clerk recommended it so I blind bought it. Not sure if it can be returned but I'm not going to wear it

I'm happy to complete the review because I am someone who reads others reviews before I make a purchase. This sent was a nice scent and I am a huge Givenchy girl. However, the scent on me was a bit strong. The calm down made me like it better but I'm not sure i have to have a bigger bottle.

Putting on this perfume is the finishing touch to getting dressed. It is a great touch up when you need a little lift or a romantic touch up before going to bed.

I agree with Katie's review. This does smell like grape soda.

V from Ventura,Ca
I bought this based on reviews and recommendations from so many perfume hauls Many said it smells sexy and sophisticated It smelled way too mature for my liking I prefer scents like Versace this just gave me a headache w the first sniff it kinda smelled like a chemical to me
Katie from Oklahoma City, ok
I liked it a lot when I first smelled it. After a few minutes on the skin it reminded me of Baccarat until someone said it smelled like grape soda and now that's all I smell.

I went in Ulta to get some new fragrances. Initially I went in the store and purchased two other rollerball perfumes. That day I picked up L'interdit and frowned at the scent. Weeks later I purchased the item based on reviews mentioning the grape scent. I wore the perfume that day and fell in LOVE. I learned sometimes you can't go by initial scent especially when you are in a store testing multiple fragrances. You really have to let it marinate on your skin to get a total appreciation of this scent. I like sweet perfumes and this one has a grape frozen ice scent. It's sweet but mature and sophisticated at the same time. This is a very unique scent and I don't like smelling like everyone else. I have purchased a full bottle and I'm looking forward to smelling the flankers. LOVE LOVE LOVE this one.

This scent is a sweet, fruity floral with something a little synthetic about it that lasts about 8 hours on me and projects moderately (I leave a scent trail, but I'm not fuming everyone in the elevator at work type of projection). It's certainly controversial, and in the summer weather I find that the opening smells almost dead on for grape Fanta (which I don't have a problem with personally, but it's not a scent for everyone given that it runs VERY CLOSE to sickly sweet), but as it dries down it becomes a super sweet floral that I love. If you like sweet perfumes, this may be one to try

I love this perfume so much. I bought the rollerball to try it out while doing various tasks (work, play, dates, all in the Florida heat). It definitely exceeded my expectations & I will be buying the full size as soon as this ones gone.

This smelled terrible it smells like wood and orange on me I only bought it because I read that Audrey Hepburn had this made for her and I love her but it's a no for me. I'm sorry Audrey 😭😭

If you are expecting the old L'Interdit- this is not it.
Maddie from Washington
Unfortunately this smelled terrible on me. I really wanted to like it but it gave me an instant headache and I went to wash it off right away but it lingered for a good 3 hours so at least it has a long wear time lol
