Interesting Anise Twist
The opening of Very Irresistible EDT is a blend of strong star anise and rose with a hint of citrus, which has a strange warm and animalic feeling to me. After 2 hours, star anise fades from the scene and leaves rose, verbena and patchouli play on their own. At this stage, these 3 notes above are easy to discern and the whole scent smells green and refreshing. I can also detect a subtle sweetness, which amplifies after another 2 hours and strangely turns the whole scent like a mixture of honey and lily while remaining soft and fresh. This final stage reminds me of similar combo in some Mugler fragrance such as Dis Moi, Miroir, A Travers le Miroir and Angel le Lys, and eventually fades out with a more herbal twist after another 2 hours.

I somehow has a similar experience with Givenchy Ange ou Demon, as they both has a pleasant base hiding under an animalic top notes in my case. The sillage is close and the longevity is around 6 hours. It has a discret elegance like other Givenchy fragrance that I have experienced and I really like the base stage, but the effect of the top notes on me makes me remain skeptical.

very irr.......itating
I've pretty much given up on Givenchy at this point, with their dozens of flankers of scents that weren't that terrific in the original. I do like some of them a little bit, for when I'm in that rare mood for a fruity-floral synthetic scent. But this one. THIS one. A giant belch of chemical whatnot - perhaps it was what they had left in various flasks around the factory - assaulted my nose. I couldn't discern any particular notes, but the sillage was ENORMOUS. I began to sneeze, so I ran to the bathroom and covered that arm with a handful of vanilla salt scrub. A lot of scrubbing and a half-hour later, I can still detect a subdued chemical cloud on that arm, but a significantly less irritating one. I guess the good news is that, if you like this one, you won't have to apply much.

The Marketing Liar's Paradox
Givenchy VERY IRRESISTIBLE is a rather fruity floral with a strong cassis note dominating the florals, including rose and peony. I do not find the anise note to be distinguishable as such, but perhaps anise flowers smell different than anise the spice?

Unlike some reviewers, I do not find this to be primarily a rose fragrance. Instead, VERY IRRESISTIBLE reminds me of something along the lines of TBS CASSIS ROSE: a likeable fruity floral with good staying power. The opening of this edt packs a punch, so restraint in application is called for, else you may alienate a bus driver--or so it seems--at least according to one review I've seen!!!

All in all, while certainly wearable, VERY IRRESISTIBLE is entirely resistible.
The name reminds me of the liar's paradox. Are you irresistible, or are you not? If you are irresistible then doesn't adding "very" means that you're not?

Very Irresistable
A blast of roses caresses your senses
next a scent of delectable purple grapes and peonies dancing though the wind.

the cassia is a unique note contributes
to this fragrances the cassia makes
a powdery feel. a beautiful light ultraviolet bottle makes this a winning
scent.

Young & flirty rose
VI is more floral than fruity to me. It's young, flirty, fresh, bright, clean and clear. VI is another fragrance that offers a take on a modern rose without being all about roses.

There's much to like about this fragrance but not much to love. There is so many similar fragrances, yet one could do a lot worse that VI.

Sample-worthy.

Irresistible pretty pink roses
I'm surprised by how many people dislike this scent. In my opinion, it's lovely.

It's rosy without being strong, too mature or predictable. The roses in Very Irresistible are soft, pretty and feminine.

The scent actually opens with the roses and powdery softness of the other florals. Strange, because with most fruity florals, the citrus and fruits are most dominant in the top notes.

This fragrance eventually softens and transcends into the heart of this scent where some fruits, possibly orange, are present.

I like the sublteness of the overall scent. It's comforting and pretty, making it wonderful for wear in Spring and Summer when you don't want anything too strong or too overpowering.

I actually applaud Givenchy for taking a risk with this scent and producing something that appeals to a different age group. Previously Givenchy had created Amarige and Organza, (just to name a few), which are lovely but just not suitable for the younger consumers. Very Irresistible, on the other hand, is perfect for them, and has now since spawned many different versions, including Absolutely Irresistible.

I highly recommend this fragrance as a scent which will appeal to floral lovers as this perfume is more flowery than fruity. It's lasting power is good and it's guaranteed never to offend.

Not so irresistible, but banal, I could remark. It's a light and inoffensive flowery-synthetic daily scent.+2
