Givenchy’s Live Irrésistible is back for Spring 2017 but even more gourmand than before with its brand new Eau de Parfum Délicieuse (CAD $125 for 75ml). I love the original and the EDT but this new fragrance is much more addicting than its predecessors. It is so sweet and gourmand that it makes my sweet tooth crave for a sweet snack.
Containing sweet top notes including cherries and french madeleines accord (aka one of my favourite french pastries); followed by notes of essential rose, orange blossom, bitter almonds, vanilla beans, tonka beans and orris root, it has the perfect mix of delectable with a slightly spicy kick to it.
It is packaged in the signature glass Live Irrésistible bottle but this time with a twist. The bottom is tinted pink to really embrace and showcase the sweet feminine scent that it contains.
I found that it is not a scent for the faint heart as it does come off as strong before mellowing out. While it is sweet, it is not overly sugary nor does it feel overwhelmingly fruity. It is a nice blend of sweet, fruity and floral. To be noted, it does smell stronger and feel more concentrated that the other versions, and as such I found that it lasts longer on the skin.
Givenchy’s Live Irrésistible Eau de Parfum Délicieuse is now available at Sephora.ca and the Bay.
