Latest Reviews of L'Interdit II

The top notes are rose predominantly, a soft and slightly somber rose, with the fruity strawberry a touch in the dull side, as if not fresh but hothouse grown with limited flavour only. A strong violet impression is also present, a touch waxy in nature and verging towards having a tuberose-like undertone at times.

The drydown is sheer floral, with jasmin and freesia counterbalanced by a somewhat unexciting ylang-ylang - mainly a white floral affair.

The base adds a woodsy vibe, as well as a touch of a pleasant powderiness. This is not a dusty powderiness, but it is more on the younger and contemporary side.

I get moderate sillage, excellent projection and seven hours of longevity on my skin.

This is not bad at all as a spring scent, but overall it is a bit dull and lacklustre. Worth trying if the ingredients appeal to you, but it never really sets off any sparks or excitement. 2.75/5.

Enjoyable and fun; imagine the original with less aldehydes, more sandalwood and fruit (strawberry). It's not terribly sad it was discontinued; the original L'interdit certainly is better. BUT, if you find a bottle for a fair price and loved the original, you'll also love this fresher/lighter/crisper spin.

The best, most undeniably sexy, and classy fragrance from Givenchy. It smells nothing like the original, it is more floral, with strawberry, rose, Ylang Ylang, Sunflower, Freesia, and Sandlwood. It is wanderful!. It is incredible, and beautiful, Love it!!!!
