Ever since I saw the video commercial with Liv Tyler, singing the classic INXS song “Need You Tonight” it offered me an urge to sample the perfume. Sadly, as this year’s flanker to the classic 2003’s Very Irresistible Givenchy, this perfume is a floral green feminine scent and nothing more. Probably because these days it gets so much harder to reinvent perfumes based on rose accords, as Givenchy surprised as 9 years ago, or the rose theme is already depleted, however my expectations from this follow up were higher.
Reportedly, the fragrance found its source of inspiration in the rock and roll music genre, hence the “electric” advertisement, and based on that assumption, I imagined Very Irresistible Givenchy Electric Rose as more aggressive. In reality, the scent kicks off with a dose of blueberry, mixed with lemon verbena, basil and lemon. As we move into the mid development phase, the floral facet in unveiled, embodied by a blend of green violet, anise and rose, the latter being the star of Very Irresistible theme. And much later, in the dry down, it takes place a shifting to a woody-musky base, in a combination of cedar and musk.
The bottle that holds Very Irresistible Givenchy Electric Rose is preserving the tall shape of the original, this time the color scheme ranging from white to transparent and being topped by a white cap. The flask is decorated with silver roses that bring to mind tattoos and the resulting image is black and white, similar to the video advertisement. Overall, Very Irresistible Givenchy Electric Rose is a decent perfume that might only be remembered this summer.
