Waste of Talent
Getting the author of Carnal Flower and Vétiver Extraordinaire to write a fruchouli is like telling Michelangelo to leave off the Sistine chapel and do a manga cartoon.
I wish he would stop wasting his time and concentrate on Going for The One...

*Not to mention My Queen, Safari, Dune, Jungle Tiger, Peau de Soie, etc

Tuberose high 10
The scent smells really good but also really intense after tuberose, you have to like. There are days I tolerate such a tuberose shocker and then there are days where it is too much for me and I even get headaches.
It is rather a classic fragrance but so now not necessarily something new extraordinary. Most likely I can imagine this fragrance on an elegant older lady. My husband his conclusion was, it smells like fabric softener

When vetiver and patchouli become too much... Not mine...
This fragrance I have a week ago briefly on a test strip "sniffed" and I thought that would be one of the few designer fragrances that it was actually create a place on my perfume shelf to get. Today I sprayed the scent on my skin and clothes in the perfumery to get to know the scent in the drydown as well. Luckily I was so smart, because my cardigan and scarf ended up in the washing machine as soon as I got home.

The scent starts off so nice, so feminine, soft and with so much tuberose, jasmine and a hint of O-flower. So far so good. But what then happens in the drydown, goes for me personally not at all.... In the dry down the scent becomes earthy, green and way too sharp and almost pungent for my nose. The fragrance suddenly gets a totally different character and thus loses " his face ".... A funny transformation..

The fragrance has me in the car so annoyed, because the sharper and sharper was. The scent suddenly became way too masculine or say unisex for my taste. Too bad. The whole radiant femininity is extinguished and the fragrance is almost pungent in the base and very green what with me quickly lead to a headache.

I have now studied the notes and I now why this fragrance in drydown for me does not go at all. There are two notes that I can not stand at all, patchouli, musty and earthy and vetiver, green and sharp ...Both notes are unfortunately present in the base and you can smell that very clearly.

The fragrance has so many followers but mine is the absolutely not... For my nose, the earthy, green notes dominate far too much from the drydown and act almost like a slap in the face....

Simply beautiful
Beautiful is what pleases - no matter if mainstream or from the fragrance industry - I find it beautiful. Not every fragrance must be multifaceted, extraordinary or anything else.
The so-called original of Audrey Hepburn was perhaps so, but unfortunately I have never met.
This one is just beautiful. Can't split it. Fresh, floral. Period. It fills me with a comforting feeling.
Scent progression linear. Holds on my skin with 2 sprays on the wrist about 5 hrs.
Sillage I can not say anything so far, had no contact with the outside world today ;)

So much tuberose makes me sick
A beautiful scent. When I close my eyes, I imagine a girl in a flower garden. Very cute. I wanted to smell like that. Little innocent girl like, aaaabut. For me, the tuberose just comes on too much. So much that it makes me nauseous (I mean enrst). Funnily enough, when I smell "the leftovers" on my clothes after 2-3 days, I think WOW, top! But we could not understand each other unfortunately

Tuberoseoverload
I wanted to like it, this forbidden and elegant fragrance. But I can not!
Already one spray is enough and I have the feeling to get no air. A headache is spreading.
This tuberose is so intrusive and penetrating, while I normally have nothing against it. Unfortunately, it is the final opponent in this fragrance. The tuberose is so present that I can not recognize anything else in this fragrance. To me, this makes it very stale and reminds me of a gaggle of older ladies meeting for coffee. Since with age the sense of smell diminishes as well as the sense of taste and sight, I can imagine here that the scent is perceived as not so unpleasant.
Even after trying to wash it off, it stubbornly clings to me and I wonder: why are you doing this to me? I really put effort into you, I didn't just test you once. Several chances I gave you, but you won't let me go. Please understand, we're just not right for each other. I'm sure you'll find someone else who loves you just the way you are.
So who is looking for a beautiful and long-lasting tuberose fragrance and knows how to deal with it is very well served here. For me, this is where we part ways. Maybe I will still try me at the EDT or a Flanker. Later.

I know where the name comes from now....
I have already written a short statement about him and on the fragrance strip he liked me also at first smell quite well. Now I have tested him on the skin and try him already since 30 minutes to wash down... he keeps himself bravely, so much for now.

The tuberose is too strong for me, where I actually thought I like tuberose very much. But with me is when riechen on the skin immediately become nauseous and Koofschmerzen make themselves wide. I really only Bubble Gum was and not much else.

Oh man, I wanted the forbidden but so much tomorrow... we will probably no longer friends :-(

Luckily, I didn't let him move right in on the first whiff on the teata tire.

Audrey would protest sharply!
L'Interdit - the Audrey Hepburn fragrance, of which I own both the perfume and the EdP and EdT - is my signature scent. So after reading various comments here, I absolutely had to try the new versions - I chose the EdP and the EdP Intense (luckily only the 30ml versions of both). So after they arrived today I have tested them immediately.
Left the Intense and right the EdP on the respective wrist. To the Intense I take separately position, so first the EdP.

One thing already in advance: to Audrey's legendary L'Interdit reminds at most rudimentary the bottle. The pink content also smells so - pink. A fresh, slightly floral spring note, which is neither particularly strong nor particularly durable to hear.

Am I disappointed? Yes and no. Yes, because the great L'Interdit of yesteryear no longer exists, and no, because I expected nothing less from a reformulated and reissued fragrance.

It seems that the motto of perfume manufacturers is "mainly mainstream". To stand out from it, which should basically be the drive of perfumery, is not asked. But that is exactly what makes a good fragrance for me. And also the difference between the good perfumery and the perfume industry.

Too bad. Here one has done neither the name Givenchy, nor the name L'Interdit something good.

I can understand Audrey..
...because I too would have forbidden Givenchy to make this fragrance available to all ;)

"Je vous l'interdit" is said to have said Audrey Hepburn to Givenchy namely, when this announced to her the message to bring the fragrance on the market, after this was actually created exclusively for Audrey! I would definitely have been pissed off too! :)

But now about the fragrance: for me, this is a modern classic with an adult orange that has style!
One of the sweet fragrances that are not pappig sweet and characterless, but with just shine with extravagance!
At the beginning, the fragrance could remind you of bubble gum but you must not be fooled by it! It develops quite quickly into an elegant orange-tuberose mix with that special something (I guess that will be the ambroxan)!
Since I always imagine a person embodying this fragrance, I would describe it as follows:

Victoria Backham....yes I can already say that so directly here at this point! Why? To me, Victoria Backham is always dressed to the nines. She has a classic, very elegant, luxurious style, but also always top modern! And exactly that is also this fragrance!
To the durability you can give a thumbs up, because it lasts with me easily 8 hours. Also the sillage is good and can (if you want) fill rooms. On the dosage it depends ;)

Definitely worth a test!!!

Greetings your
Angelina Patchouli

Do me Oswald! - But I'm not!
This perfume cries out for a cultural-critical wreck with the tenor "Downfall of the Occident". One hears it literally beg: "Do me the Oswald Spengler!".

What can't be cited in support of this! The postulation of a ban where there is only commerce. The fact that the (certainly very likeable) Rooney Mara is no Audrey Hepburn even if you put her in gothic clothes, make her look Metropolis-like and (appropriately) put her on the bench in a picturesque Paris metro station (I assume she climbed up because she's very ladylike afraid of the mice that cavort down there). The exponential shrinking of the intevals between each launch of the next Interdict fragrance (which usually has nothing at all to do with the previous one), reminiscent of a reverse viral spread: 1957, 1993, 2002, 2007, 2018.

Indes: Sorry, the whip stays packed.

First of all, the genre "Verriss" to this fragrance of gold has already been dealt with unsurpassably. There is nothing more to put on.

Second, and more importantly, I like the scent. A lot, in fact. My enthusiastic comment from a few months ago about the Intense flanker proves valid after testing this fragrance here, the (very similar) base version to its younger and blacker sister from 2020. It was not an expression of a momentary failure of taste, but at most as that of a consolidated deviance.

L'Interdit is for me a captivatingly clear and unfussy composed and structured, beautifully modern floral fragrance, of matte appearance, dense and tightly woven texture, intense presence and a hue in the orange-salmon-sepia-brown spectrum. The white color of the box is misleading, the color of the liquid plays a little too much into the pinkish to match my fragrance impression.

This olfactory main field upstream I take (only a few five or ten minutes) a lighter, very slightly fruity-citrus (but not in the sense of a superficial cologne freshness or even crystalline hardness, it remains here creamy and creamy matt) and also something sweet introduction was.

[By the way, I am also able to perceive in this - quite only short and with the main body of the fragrance very artfully connected - phase no trace of intrusive, sticky or chewing gum cheap sweetness; in the overall fragrance certainly not. And I am quite someone who reacts to too much sugar in women's fragrances rather sourly.]

Towards the end, the fragrance then runs out into a soft loamy-cocoa purring base congenial to the floral center, which I find extremely sensual (almost I would like to say: bordering on pornographic).

Overall, for me, a modern and yet classic fragrance: Dthe font fits very well, the indecisive style-free-irgendwierunde bottle with the spray head in the format of a Stormtrooper helmet not, there would have been more Bauhaus better.

Very feminine, very sexy, more for the evening than for the workday (or university, I think the fragrance also appeals to a younger audience) and more for autumn than for spring.

Makes it 8.5 points then (with a twitch of the pointer towards 9). I remember the Intense version of 2020 as denser, darker, and a bit more artful and sophisticated.

And Oswald is an old curmudgeon, and Occident still alive and kicking despite everything.

What could Audrey say ? I think that this reformulated fragrance, anyway pleasant and warm, is totally different from the legendary one.
