I wish I could have many bottles of this one.Everything I own from Givenchy is vintage,I must say I have them since the year they came out.About this one the original formula is so aquatic, chic and fresh.The second bottle I bought that one with the golden top I must say I found it more flowery than aquatic and doesn't last long...sorry but they do keep doing reformulations and thats not good for those who really love a unique perfume as this one.

A fresh, light and uplifting floral fragrance
Eau de Givenchy is a fresh, light and uplifting floral fragrance.

Its opening is bright and sunny with bergamot, sharp citrus and grapefruit. There is also an added faint touch a mint. Other fruit notes are supposed to be present but I can't say that I get them.

The heart is a bouquet of flower notes: a very natural lily-of-the-valley is joined by jasmine, honeysuckle and rose. The lightness of this fragrance makes it ideal for warm, sunny Spring days.

Longevity is average, but not bad at all for a light floral. The base is woody (sandalwood and cedar) with light touches of musk and moss which add a bit of depth to the drydown.

My Ice Princess Fragrance
Eau de Givenchy was my very first perfume, and regarding that with the passage of time the packaging was changed, I suspect that the fragrance has been reformulated as well. I don't know the current version, sold as part of Givenchy's "Mythical" collection, my review refers to the 1980s original, sold in a simple high and square flacon with a dark-blue veined square plastic lid.

At first, Eau de Givenchy smells fresh, delicately flowery, clean and rather cool but lightly spicy as well - maybe that is what some people perceive as soapy. It ist a clear, clean scent, not sexy, not playful either, but reminding of spring, pure and innocent, just like a cold mountain stream splashing through a meadow full of spring flowers.
A virgin whose erotic powers are still sleeping. While the fragrance evolves, sensual notes emerge, a warm woodiness, warmer, more sensual flowers: Behind the cool aloofness sleeps a clear sensuality, but it remains a suggestion.

All in all Eau de Givenchy is a rather cool and reserved fragrance, fresh, friendly and in no way brash or flashy - a fine fragrance for office and business.
