Rambling rose: Givenchy Very Irrésistible
If you're into fresh, floral scents, give Givenchy's Very Irrésistible a try. Created as a tribute to Audrey Hepburn — a muse to Monsieur de Givenchy back in the day — the fragrance turns the traditional rose scent on its head with tangy bursts of star anise and verbena leaf.
The fragrance now comes in limited-edition Mes envies irrésistible packaging that plays on the rose motif, which has become a bit of a signature in Givenchy's ready-to-wear collections. This new bottle is adorned with a floral-printed ribbon, which you can then use as a hair tie or adornment.
In addition Amanda Seyfried, who has been the face of the scent since 2013, stars in the new ad campaign that has inspired serious feelings of Paris envy. In the stylish images, Seyfried spends a dream day in the city of lights; from indulging in macarons to some serious shoe-shopping at the Givenchy boutique. The actress who was last seen in Ted 2 gives us her list of must-visits in the eternal city.
