Givenchy Very Irrésistible Sensual

Very Irrésistible Sensual by Givenchy was first launched in 2005 and the fragrance was created by perfumer Dominique Ropion. The muse behind Givenchy Very Irrésistible Sensual perfume line is the charmingly beautiful Liv Tyler.

Top Notes

Heart Notes
Rose, Star Anise

Base Notes
Patchouli, Vanilla

Givenchy Very Irrésistible Sensual includes a mixture of centofolia rose, peony rose, fantasia rose, passion rose, emotion rose, verbena leaf, star anise, vanilla and patchouli. 

To be honest, I have never been attracted to the scent of roses. I find them to be a bit too mature, a little too soapy, a little too powdery, and most of the time they're also a bit headache inducing. But I wanted to try this as perfumes between late 90s - early 2000s tend to be more well blended and never quite as sweet as today's scent.

When I first tried this, I was expecting the harsh dry opening of roses. But instead I get a soft whift of peony and roses, a slightly sugary sweet floral with a hint of musk. It' s sensual and intoxicating, I find it to be mysterious and very irresistable. I actually wore this during the day and never find it to be cloying, it also has a great staying power. It dries down to a musky vanilla base with hints of woody notes from the earthy patchouli.

It also has the perfect sillage, people get a whiff of this intoxicating scent when you walk pass. It's subtle and doesn't scream from across the room, hello La Vie Est Belle, lol. 

Givenchy Very Irrésistible Sensual is a sophisticated and distintive scent as I haven't smell anything quite as similar as this. A unique and inviting scent that will set you apart from the current mass of sticky sweet smelling crowds.
