An aldehyde floral from 1957, re-released in the ‘Les Mythiques’ collection


One of the House’s earliest scents, designed specifically for actress Audrey Hepburn, L’Interdit, a creation from 1957, returns in this collection of 10 fragrances that were no longer available, or had become very hard to find: Les Mythiques. The launch coincides with the House of Givenchy’s 50th anniversary. L’Interdit owes its name to the actress’s reply when Hubert de Givenchy suggested distributing her fragrance more widely, ‘Mais, je vous l’interdis…’ (“But I forbid it!”).

    Une reformulation qui n'est pas à la hauteur du souvenir que j'en gardais. Déçue !

    Encore un mythe de la parfumerie française, lancé dans les années 1950 que Givenchy a eu la bonne idée de continuer à commercialiser. Je ne suis pas vraiment sûre qu'il trouve encore un succès tel que celui qu'il avait pu rencontrer au moment de son lancement car les fragrances aldéhydées ne sont plus vraiment à la mode.

    This is my signature fragrance! It is so elegant and discrete. What I love the best about it is it's powdering/floral notes. Nowadays, young people dislike a lot powdery/floral scents because it's remains them their grand-mothers. To me, being elegant is timeless. I feel this is more sophisticated than most of today's candy/fruity fragrances. But, of course, it's only my opinion :) Also, I can't compare it to the original scent of the eat, because I only smelled the 2007 reformulation :)
