Fleur d'Interdit Fragrance Reviews

perfumeaddiction

When this first came out I obtained a sample box of several little Givenchy fragrances. I remember enjoying this one the best. I am reviewing the original formula. I had not smelled this in almost 20 years and forgot about it until I obtained a wonderful vintage bottle. Fleur D'interdit can best be described as an extremely elegant soft floral fragrance. I do smell slight green notes and also some slight spice mixed in the background. I also get mild melon without being fruity as I am not a fan of fruity scents. Oh how I miss these types of perfumes. This one was so classy and elegant. If you find a vintage bottle grab it. I am seeing them all over and the price is very reasonable. I believe this one has long since been discontinued. A pleasure to have it back in the collection.

i've received a bottle of it today. and as i have a mini of a pre-reformulated version, i'm able to compare both. they smell the same which is great! BUT the modern version is much lighter which is not so good in my case as i prefer more intensive florals. still, it's very lovely. some would say 'watery',but i would say inoffensive...
true floral,elegant and light...makes you feel feminine, gentle and seek your man's care and protection))

No Cannelline, Fleur D'interdit hasn't got anything in common with L'eau D'issey ( that I can't stand). It is discontinued, so Mortazuma if you have a chance to find a bottle, you have a vintage in your hands. I love this fragrance, because it's one of the first perfume I received from my husband. Last year I found another bottle luckyly, and I am so happy to have the opportunity to wear it again. It's very Givenchy, floral, but not loud, a bit fruity and acquatic at the same moment ( melon and watermelon), I detect the cyclamen note very strong. I find it one of the most feminine and fine floral fragrance ever, elegant, thin, subtle. Maybe not so sexy in its purpose, but a woman elegant, fine and subtle is seductive, isn't she?

What a beautifully feminine fragrance this was. And I do mean WAS because I have no idea what it may smell like nowadays since there has been quite a trend of perfumes being reformulated. My body chemistry seemed to like this one. It made me feel like the sun, providing heat for the flowers to actually bloom. The scent, on its own, was too subtle to be in any ways potent.

This translates as "forbidden flower" and yes...at my 20 years of age, I was too...so this was a bit of a personal landmark for me. It is the scent of something so serene in its solace, unpolluted by material concerns or competition, without worries, blissfully enjoying the sweet fruits of independence and leisure.

When I think of this fragrance I think of perpetual spring. Soft caressing breezes carrying the scent of blooms from lush, well manicured gardens. This wasn't a wild fragrance. It was the scent that brought me visions of a garden that was strategically and passionately created for beauty, aroma, color, harmony and serenity...Monet's garden at Giverny (google images). The sillage was just as ripe as the perfume itself...airy, sweeet, elegant and fresh.

I will agree that it isn't a seducer's potion, nor something that had the potential to be a signature scent. But to me, it was a fragrance that was akin to a moment in your life that is meant to be experienced only once. So it is only as precious as you make it out to be.

I have only my memory to rely on for this one. I was 13 when it was launched, and it is one of the few scents of that time that I can recall even being aware of; along with Cacharel's Eden this was a scent I discovered through ads because I had begun reading fashion magazines and strolling around wistfully in makeup stores. I remember the strong impact the advertising had on me, both Fleur d'Interdit and Eden had those very suggestive, covertly sexual auras which readily struck a chord with a young girl transitioning into adolescence.

I have the idea that Fleur d'Interdit has much in common with L'eau d'Issey, though I may be completely mistaken. Would love to hear if anyone else sees the similarity.

So my mom bought this way back and just kept it in her closet. I have since aquired it. Upon first spray it smells very much like floral soap. over time it smells like melon, rose, hiacynth. definitely a springtime secent and for the day. it smells fresh and clean. could be worn to work or just around. i think this fragrance is fitting for any age group. i like it though it is a tad too floral for my perfect scent.

i loved it when i first smelled it on seventeen magazine sample. that was in 1996. in 1997 i had the chance to buy this at a very cheap price but the salesday offered me versus versace at the same price. i chose to buy the latter which smelled like a very strong cough syrup!
years later, i looked for fleur d'interdit everywhere but couldnt find it, only to find out that it had been discontinued. i had my chance to own this perfume and i regret not grabbing that chance. now, im still on what seemed like a life long search for this perfume. why did they discontinue this special fragrance when so many people wanted it. they say you'll never forget your first love. you may meet many others but your first love will always have a special place in your heart.
well, i have the same sentiments for this perfume. i fell in love with so many perfumes but i will never forget FLEUR D' INTERDIT. it was love at first smell.

I had this one... in 1994. Nice but on my skin it would simply gone in ...let say... in 30 minutes? I bought it in Paris and it was so cheep! Could not understand why but after few day of use I knew... no "staying power". Or it was my skin? Conclusion - yes - for young persons, yes - for daily use, yes - never ever for me.

Pretty dry-down. I'm a flower girl. I love flowers (it is something from my childhood) Anyways, it's pretty even when I don't really care much for green scents. I don't smell much of any of those fruits listed, I mostly smell flowers on this one. I have a cold though. The opening scared me a bit, but I really like it 15 minutes later.

This is a very breezy fruity floral fragrance, it reminds me a bit of Creed's Spring Flower. Smells very natural- one can tell the ingredients are high quality. Perfect for warm weather or those days when you want to bring warm weather to you.

My parents bought this for me in my childhood as a present, whilst beeing on a vocation. Twelve years later I still have this fragrance, and each time I use it, I go back in time.

Fleur d'Interdit is a very feminine scent.
The flowery,fruity notes make this perfume smell innocent, young, fresh and lovely.

I tried this perfume tonight, from a bottle I bought some 15 years ago, but I cannot say that I like it.
Florals are really not my cup of tea.
On my skin it smells like any floral soap or shampoo, no sweetness, no character, no voluptuosity, nothing. Maybe the perfume is too old and has lost it's depth, I don't know...

It is absolutely my favourite perfume, very hard to find nowadays. When you spray it on yourself, first you smell something that must be familiar from your childhood: when you were running on wet green grass and fell, and the green from the grass was smudged on your knee. This chlorophyl shock is surprising, but after fiye minutes it completely goes away, and a lovely green-flowery-fruity composition remains on your skin. The lasting power is excellent. This sent is unique and subtle,innocent but seducing at the same time.

I still own a tiny beautiful miniature of vintage Fleur d'Interdit. Well, thinking of the '80s as vintage makes me a little sad, LOL!
Fleur d'Interdit is another typical example of Givenchy's genius back in time.
It smells so floral, fresh, innocent, romantic, like a young girl in lovecoming out for the first time from her closed enchanted garden and meeting her first love, a happy one, of course.
Innocence and a tiny bit of sultryness that I have no idea how Givenghy managed to obtain in all its pre-reformulation creations.
Innocent for sure, but this girl knows her own!
Perfumes that claim to be innocent these days fall either in the no-oomph faint lily waters category or in the I-wanted-to-be-innocent-but-my-woodsy-drydown-never-allows-me one.
Fleur d'Interdit is a perfect balance between a fresh happy floral and a slightly animalic scent.
Best in vintage for sure!

Fleur d'Interdit is magnificent! It is very floral, sweet, but light at same time. I am actualy using the second flacon of 100ml. When I first discovered it, I was 23 and I felt it was much suitable for me that time. Now, 15 years later, I keep usng it during the day, in summertime (or springtime), as it makes me feel younger. Fleur d'Interdit, rather than a Forbitten Flower reminds you of a timid one. That is part of its magic and makes it useful for young women as well.

I have a small bottle of the original amber version of the perfume and I love it. Very floral, very very floral! And sweet. Extremely feminine and I would say perfect for day and summer use, maybe Spring. You may be able to get away with wearing it at night, if you were going to eat la frechesa or something (excuse my spelling!) but it is quite obviously not a winter perfume. The bottle is pretty too!

I'm crazy about it ! I recently bought a bottle on the web , now it's impossble to find it at a reasonable price.
Romantic , floral, subtle , but definitely NOT boring !It's complex unlike the usual girl scent , and that's why it's different.
It has probably been discontinued because nowadays the younger girls (which this scent had been designed for)like more the very sweet and tacky scent .

This is the first perfume I ever bought for myself. I was 15 years old, and I was on vacation in Italy. While in Venice, I poked into a tiny perfume shop. I bought it because of the frilly bottle. It reminded me of my travels in beautiful, romantic Venezia and the equally enchanting Lago di Como. Luckily I grew to cherish the fragrance. It is sweet, innocent, carefree, playful, bursting with sun-ripened melon, peach, and wildflowers. I loved this perfume in my teens, and I love it equally now. It's beautiful, uplifting, and naturally sweet. The color of the bottle is perfect for the scent. I glow when I wear it. Very few fragrances manage to capture my heart like Fleur d'Interdit. Please bring it back, Givenchy!

I used to have the largest bottle of this one as an early 20's girl, but I decided to give my bottle away.
Just yesterday I was wondering if I would feel the same way about it, if I would smell it again now. Myabe I would love it now.

A fruity floral for sure.FULL of fruit,ripe,juicy mouth watering fruit with just a taste of green.It has a beautiful floral heart with kisses of orchid,jasmine and rose that drift up to ur nose in a waifting aroma of fresh flowers.THe dry down is sweet vanilla and sandlewood.Lasts 6/8 hrs.Great sillage.I get compliments galore! I disagree that its an everday fume.Good enough for special occassions!

This is beautiful and unique. Absolutely a fruity floral, but not the fluffy, sweet, sunny, bouncy variety. The glamorous version. Soft but not too light, I would call it medium, with great staying power and just the right amount of sillage.
It's perfectly blended, the main note that stands out for me is a soft peach followed by the faintest hint of rose, jasmine, and vanilla. It has a slight sourness to it but not the type that makes your mouth water just smelling it. There's an edge that almost leans towards slightly overripe fruit but manages to steer clear. That sounds unappetizing but it actually ads a depth to it and is not offensive. At least to me, others may feel differently.

I fell for Fleur D'Interdit via an older mini and waited for my full bottle to arrive before writing my review. The full bottle is a different color (light yellow as apposed to the deeper orange hue)but they both smell fabulous. I like it because it's very different from your typical fruity floral while still having everything to qualify for the group.

Not a hot summer day perfume. More Spring through Winter, perhaps cool summer nights or overcast summer days. And the lasting power, fabulous, all day. I can smell it in the morning sometimes. Unique and most likely not for everyone, but very nice for those who appreciate this style of scent. Personally, I'm very glad to have stumbled upon Fleur D'Interdit.

A pretty floral in a very pretty bottle. It's too pretty for me. Imagine a blushing young lady courted by a young man in a garden, 1700 century. That's it! But still I can see how classic pretty is never wrong too, just not on me.

I so agree that this is good, but not interesting. The greenness is appealing, but it somehow doesn't have a voice. It is light enough to wear around those who are fragrance phobic if you can't bear to be natural.
