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.

My holy grail
Actually, this scent was just an uninteresting tester sheet in my Douglas bag. Normally it would have disappeared in my drawer, but something inside me said: smell me! So I pulled off the foil under which the scent was hidden and was knocked over. What an extremely feminine scent! I sniffed it a few more times and then had to put it aside, as I still had some work to do. In the evening I entered my bedroom and immediately the scent fell back into my nose. Mind you: there were only 1 or at most 2 splashes on a piece of cardboard! It went on like this, it lasted up to one week (!) and only then it got weaker. Unfortunately there was no shop nearby that sold this scent and I don't trust myself to buy blindly yet. The next time I was in Hamburg I stormed into a Douglas store and sprayed it under my wrist. After spraying it unbelievably sweet (in my opinion just a little touch of Hubba Bubba, not as strong as the comments here claim), more in the direction of cotton candy with flowers? After 10 minutes only the flowers (orange blossom and jasmine) remain, maybe a touch of patchouli. For me the scent is like a warm, cuddly blanket. But be careful: My little Männlein means, rather maximally 2 splashes than 3!

Forbidden beautiful..
I love that smell. From the first second I saw it. In the beginning it starts with me fruity, but not too sweet, strangely enough somehow like cherry, a dark cherry and a little bit like orange, a candied orange. Shortly afterwards, the tuberose, in its full splendour, but interesting and by no means "old-fashioned". And then something happens that I can hardly describe: the fragrance becomes powdery and smoky at the same time. A bit sexy, a bit playful, a bit mysterious. I wear it on every occasion, but I enjoy it most on dates with friends and more so in autumn and winter. The response to this fragrance is also very positive: many compliments and questions.
I find the bottle - which some might consider boring - very appealing, tres chic.
The durability is extraordinarily good. I notice it the very next day. In sweaters, scarves etc. still days later.

Sweet and feminine
When I just sprayed her on me, I found her very dominant - and I really only had one of the tiniest of sprays. The scent also reminded me the tiniest bit of Dior's J'Adore - probably because of the pear, bergamot and tuberose. After about half an hour, the scent becomes less fierce and turns very warm and cozy, and I catch whiffs of vanilla, vetiver, patchouli and tuberose. The scent also remains slightly fruity because of the pear.
The longer I wear the her, the more I like her. The durability is great, the scent really lingers all day. Even after showering can I still smell her on me! Sillage is heavy in the beginning, but flattens out after a while and then becomes kind of humble.
It's my first Givenchy purchase and this perfume makes me excited to try other fragrances from this house.

Wrigley's Extra, Hubba Bubba or Mentos Gum?
Since Saturday a test strip fragrances the whole bedroom.
What do you want me to say? The scent is pure! But the finest.

At the WE I had planned to test some fragrances that have been around for a while, but I never really noticed them, because they are described as too arbitrary, too sweet, etc.. Super that it is now a little colder and my craving for sweet and heavy has awakened again ;)

Unlike most of them here, the tuberose is not an enemy of mine. But I have to admit, I don't like all fragrances with tuberose either. Especially Gucci Bloom. I'd love to run away from him ;)

L'Interdit, on the other hand, I like it a lot. Yes he is quite sweet and doesn't really go through a development with me (of course also skin test) but he is not bad at all!

From the orange blossom only a short breath comes towards me. I'm not really taking jasmine. The Tuberrose has her pants on and decides where to go.
Patchouli and vetiver tame Queen Tuberrose towards the end and do not let the scent drift into the unbearably sweet.

Now that I'm sniffing at the test strip (which I don't have to, because it still smells like it in the whole bedroom) I have to say that it reminds me a bit of MMMM from JHAG. It's just the typical chewing gum-like scent of the tuber rose. Must like :)

The shelf life was approx. 3 hours. So it's not really madness. However, the fragrance has a madness Sillage. Which can also be difficult because he's really cute.

Well, I'm split. L'Interdit definitely has its charm and is also a beautiful fragrance. Despite that, I'd rather smell the scent on the stripe than on my skin. At MMMM it wasn't enough to buy, that says it all ;)

Miss Dior Cherie only softer
Smells very soft, warm and feminine. To me, it resembles Miss Dior Cherie edp very much. But it's also its own, and the durability is unbeatable even lasts longer than Alien von Mugler.

Sweet and wonderful
The perfume is admittedly very sweet at first, but then it quickly evolves into a warm, sunscreen-scented seductive mixture. Very refined with all the sweet bombs that there are otherwise so. In summer evening sprayed on warm skin, a sex bomb ;-)

Times have changed... and so has L'Interdit
Absolute class! L'Interdit is just a suave embrace of white floral bliss.
It's like a wedding dress: radiant, innocent and yet alluring, dreamy and sexy.
No point comparing this with the previous Interdit; they are generations apart, spirit apart, distinctively separated by times.

This is an amazing fragrance, suitable for both day and night, office and private life.
The tuberose here is a Queen of discreet charm, enchanting without being vulgar. There is nothing synthetic about it: perhaps some notes in the composition confuse some people.

It's simply a 10/10, well done Givenchy!

First and only scent I've ever loved made by this house...

Forbidden sweet
For a long time I struggled with myself whether I should comment on the new L' Interdit at all. Cause he's not the best L'Interdit I ever smelled. In the Givenchy L'Interdit ranking of 5 L'Interdits he is in 5th place, but that's because I didn't like him very much in the beginning: The synthetic-floral sweetness of the initial phase must first be overcome. It's this honey-sticky trend head note that you unfortunately find far too often lately and that I find hard to bear. And I'm a sweetheart! I also don't shy away from Turkish baklava, Keiko Mecheri's Loukhoum or Sorriso. But they also all smell more natural, refined and gourmand than this breath paralyzing sweetener.
Enough criticism. L' Interdit 2018 will still be beautiful sometime, namely in the direction of vintage Chloé, the 70s scent. This is the moment when he even seems almost classic and noble, like a true L' Interdit. If even Hubert ("Üh-ber'") would consider putting his name under it, he would still be among us.
But still, I'm too old for this version, or it's too young for me.
The flacon is very similar to the 50s predecessor of the same name, the fragrance is not. Kind of blasphemous.

Chewing gum from the vending machine
Do you remember the time when the colorful chewing gum balls rolled out of the vending machines everywhere? For me, this fragrance is pure childhood. It smells exactly the same as those colorful chewing gum balls tasted from the vending machines. One to one.

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