My mom have this and this is quite nice. I think this is for all ages because the sweetness is just right and its maturity is just right too. At first, you can really smell the floral notes and a touch of fruits, it was like a bubbly smell for me. Citrus is not that noticeable but you can sense it, you can only smell the sour thing when you sniff it close to your nose and it only comes at the end of your sniff making it not noticeable within arm length. The sweetness is not overpowering and the drydown is a bit soapy making it nice. Amber was also noticeable.

Really fresh and fruity without being juvenile..enjoyed it but the lasting power is very poor on my skin. It is a very harmonious blend of notes so that's too bad!

Flirty, fun, fresh, feminine fruity-floral with a warm & cosy edge.

The start awakens you with fresh lime juice & peel in a tall glass of ginger ale. BE is sweet, but has a mid-weight sugar level that is less candy & more classy - less pink & more golden in hue. I am saddened that I do not sense more ginger or cherry in the top notes, but overall I find myself smiling as I inhale this cheery, unassuming perfume.

The mid-phase welcomes you in with warm & inviting jasmine atop a base of musky vanilla with a slightly fizzy cedar twist. There is also a touch of the CKin2U "lemon-cup cake" note lurking in the background....warm-citrus, buttery & inviting.

The lasting power is a little poor & BE does tend to end with the rather generic (but very pleasant) vanilla-musk base common to so many F-F scents of late.

In truth, this really isn't a fragrance that stands out or sets itself apart from the fruity-floral crowd but it is a very wearable & workable scent that is polite & discreet - a little ray of summer sun - & it is the perfect pick-me-up for a work day where sillage & substance need to be subdued. Lovely!

Thank you so much, NathalieZ! :)

If you like Jasmine, this one is for you.
Reminds me of Carolina Herrera (again, the Jasmine and a few more notes in common) but clearer, more delicate and subtle.

This reminds me so much of Marc Jacobs' 'Daisy', and even Elizabeth Ardens' 'Pretty' a little bit. Very fresh, light, and suitable for everyday. I like it, but definitely not one of my favorites, for it's a bit too lime-y for my taste... Good for those who are into lemon/lime scents. However, I do love the bottle.

Finally, I'm a lucky owner of a Be Givenchy bottle. I'm so in love with this fragrance - is smells like a delicious drink with grapefruit juice and grenadine, that gives it this lovely sweetness. Makes me want to put on a girly dress and sunglasses on and walk in the sunlight, take off my shoes and dip my feet in a fountain, not minding people staring at me and a policeman shouting that it's not allowed. Listen to the birds singing while sucking on a lollipop. Stare at the sky and think about nothing. Be Givenchy is all these little pleasures. Carefree and joyful. I absoulutely adore it.

Wohoo! stunning! simple! sparkling!
Be Givenchy is flawless floral fruity. Inviting with its non offensive face, joyful nature and endless enthusiastic perception.

Smells on lime, cherry and honeysuckle. And orange blossom. Like playing handball in the summer evening, having picnic in friends backyard, shopping with no card limit and swimming nude under moonlight. Free of prohibition.

Similar to My Givenchy Dream, better in terms of lasting time and happy fizz. Makes me humming "You look like an angel, walk like an angel, talk like an angel..."

Be Givenchy is a Beauty! Go for it!

I think I've found an another great perfume! It's fresh, it's charming, fun but classy, it's floral, but not an average, unintresting floral... The cherry makes Be Givenchy sweet, but the lime balances the fragrance, so it won't get sugary. Dries down wonderfuly, I'm not sure but Ihink it's the cedar that makes it so plesant. What I like the best about this one is that it isn't impersonal - I can relate this perfume to the girl I am. Could it be that it's made for me? It suits me and goes well with my chemistry, fortunately. Be Givenchy reminds me somehow of YSL Baby Doll, only sweeter and doesn't have this soapy feel that Baby Doll has. The lasting power isn't that great but it's better thatn BD (4-5 hours, while the first one barely stays for 2 hours). The girl from the ad reminds me so much of myself. The only strange thing about is that it seems not to linger on clothes at all, though most of prerfumes I have stay very long on clothes. Oh well, the great thing is that it smells lovely on skin. I've never been really keen on Givenchy perfumes, but this one convinced me!

I love this one! Somehow it reminds me of My Givenchy Dream. Similar bottles, but this one is more optimistic.
Emotionally, it's something happy and chic, somehow, it's like a romantic version of Dior Addict II + Chanel Chance Frachie without the heavy dry down.
Yeah...it doesn't last long, pity...but I still love it a lot.

Love this scent. Fruity floral. Really pretty. BUT - it barely lasts=( I spray generously in the morning and by noon it's gone. I also wear Burberry London which lasts and lasts!

love it! I bought 2 bottles because it doesnt last long. I keep 1 in my car and 1 at home. It's not too sweet and girly, and not overpowering like some. It's perfect for me - 26 year old active business women. It's great for daily day time use. But I would go with something like Miracle for evening.

I really like this fragrance, it is classified here as fruity floral, but my first impression was - floral chypre. It is not like the typical girly fruity floral scent, though the bottle promises you this type of fragrance - no, it's not at all! It's got class and glamour and something "European woman" about it. I would highly recommend!

The honeysuckle,ginger and lime really stand out in this fragrance in the opening and then as it dries down I can smell the cedar and amber and it smells refreshing.This is a very different perfume I have never smelled anything like it before and I think I will make this a permanent part of my collection.
