...and no one forbids them
When Truman Capote published his short novel "Breakfast at Tiffany's" in 1958, he tried, with an ironic undertone and a feeling for social taboo breaks, to draw the bitterly evil portrait of a "live girl" who lets herself be paid for by rich men and exploited at the same time.
However, the verminification of the work never found its recognition. "Tiffany" has as much resemblance to his book as "the Rockettes' dance guards with the famous prima ballerina Galina Ulanova", he said in an interview and added: "I could puke".
L'Interdit by Givenchy, the perfume that Hubert G. created especially for Audrey Hepburn in 1957 and which the actress initially refused to market ("I forbid you to do this", she is said to have said to him - hence the name, "The ban") was a floral-aldehyde 50's fragrance that always reminded me of Chanel's No. 5. The LVMH Group has already been relaunched twice (most recently in 2007 in the collection "Les Parfums Mythiques") in 2018 with a re-launch that is deliberately intended to tie in with the great tradition.
No less than three successful professional noses have set about implementing contemporary specifications.
When I smell the result today like this, I notice a generic arbitrariness that makes me sadly shake my head in its mass market conformity, which only craves for market shares.
A little bit of Elli-Saab appeal here, sticky, sweet cardboard there, how was it with "La vie est belle", the tuberose molecule still works, Jasmin-Sambac always pulls, Ambroxan was just back on special offer.
The liquid is soft rosé (wonderful today my girlfriend with the ultimate statement: "If the scent is already pink, you can forget it anyway").
Advertising text swagger about freedom, breaking taboos, adventure... blablabla blup. Modell is remotely similar to Audrey, but does not come close to her (but who does?).
In New York the house Krigler launched on 28.4. in honour of Hepburns 89th birthday on 4.5.2018 a soap, which fits to another of her favourite perfumes, namely to "English Promenade 19".
"The girl is going to make her breasts completely out of fashion", said Billy Wilder after the shooting of "Sabrina" about Hepburn.
This statement has probably a small truth content, finally there was at that time still the Monroe.
However, it could prove true that the LVMH Group is slowly going to be able to completely dislodge large perfumes.
The new "L'Interdit" marks this way.
