The 2019 limited edition of the fragrance L’Interdit
This juice, designed in homage to Audrey Hepburn, was a sort of “invitation to cross one’s own limits, go beyond convictions and embrace one’s uniqueness with elegance”. Today, plunging us once again into this world famous olfactory saga, Givenchy has decided to combine these different universes, namely perfumery and haute couture. The interdict Givenchy becomes the interdict Edition Couture, sublimating its bouquet of white flowers, while integrating it in a bottle covered with a delicate lace.
Return to the universe of the Interdict
The interdict Edition Couture tells us, like its predecessors, the story of a man and a woman, or rather that of Hubert de Givenchy and the English actress Audrey Hepburn. The two had a relationship, and so the designer decided to design a perfume for his beloved. This exclusive creation was initially intended for its sole use, a sort of homage, tenderness, and love. Little by little, Hubert de Givenchy finally wanted to share this essence and offer it to all women by paying public homage. He first wanted to baptize his perfume Audrey but his muse did not hear it that way and forbade him to do so. This is how this 1957 juice got its name.
The interdict Edition Couture, a very floral fragrance
Like this love, Givenchy’s L’Indit Couture Edition remains a very light and evanescent fragrance , not devoid of temperament. It is an “invitation to go beyond conventions and assume, with elegance, your uniqueness”. On a purely olfactory level, this composition, signed Dominique Ropion, Anne Flipo and Fanny Bal, is characterized by its softness and liveliness. Its fresh breath takes on a fruity duo of bergamot and pear. Its heart, meanwhile, is an enormous bouquet of white flowers, very inspired by the very first Indit from 1957. The interdict Edition Couture also contains jasmine, tuberose and orange blossom. This fragrance ends with a more sensual and syrupy base of vetiver, vanilla, patchouli and ambroxan.
When lace invites itself on a Givenchy bottle
On the aesthetic side, the interdict Couture Edition is enhanced with a new collector’s bottle. The latter comes in a cardboard box, the exterior of which is completely tinted with pure white, and the edges of which are covered with fine lace. Inside, this box evokes the passion of a flamboyant red color, the Interdit Edition Couture bottle and this time decorated with the Givenchy logo in black lace. This is a sublime nod to the haute couture know-how of the house. On the neck of this bottle is also a pendant bearing the name of this new perfume associated with that of the brand. The interdict Edition Couture and an “exclusive couture interpretation, a tribute to the Maison’s creations”.
