Givenchy Very Irresistible Summer Cocktail for Women
from the Givenchy website
from the little nose:
top: citrus, mint, red berry, anise
middle: muguet, rose
base: vanilla, sandalwood, musk
The fresh, leafy-green mint note on the top of Givenchy’s Summer Cocktail is encore-worthy – the mint is so realistically tangible, you can almost feel the peach-fuzzy leaves between your teeth. A barely detectable hint of berry adds a little femininity and prevents the top from smelling too efficacious or conjuring images of toothpaste, as mint can so often do. Clear, crisp, and just a touch sweet, like hard, colorless rock sugar patiently waiting to be swirled into a cup of green mint tea. Sparkling and clean like a newly-discovered falls in the cool mountains, this light and flirtatious fragrance uplifts me in a second. Evolves slightly milky-sweet as it dries down. ♦♦♦ Three stars.
