Woah! Givenchy Live Irrésistible has got to be one of the most intriguing perfumes I’ve ever owned. Like people always say, ‘never judge a book by its cover’ …. Well, when it comes to fragrances – never judge a perfume by its bottle or the celebrity that endorses it.

Amanda Seyfried, in this case. Featured in a really fun, flirty, joie de vivre, whimsical girl-next-door kind of a campaign.

The rose petals, of course are quite fitting – however, the strongest notes that come through on my skin at first are definitely pineapple, tangerine and passion fruit.


The sweet, juicy combo instantly transports you to a tropical island, maybe Bora Bora, in a flowing dress with a glass of Dom Pérignon in hand. Here’s the twist though – once this beautiful breeze of fresh summer air fades … The scent leaves a strong and sensual almost unisex’ish trail – uuffh, it’s so surprisingly layered. It keeps you guessing, I love it x

05-givenchyLive Irrésistble literally transforms itself throughout the day – which is genius! From sweet and fruity to peppery, musky and woody – it’s just an all round yummy gourmand fragrance!


… oh, by the way! If you’re familiar with your pour homme fragrances, you’ll maybe agree that the spicy undertones of Live Irrésistible reminds you of 1 Million by Paco Rabanne or Fahrenheit by Christian Dior …


Thanks for reading! Let me know what your favorite Givenchy fragrance is …
