Givenchy III Perfume by Givenchy, Released in 1970 to commemorate the opening of a Givenchy store in Paris on the famed 3 Avenue George V, Givenchy Iii has been the siren song and signature of elegant women for decades.
This timeless classic opens with a mesmerizing combination of aldehydes, noble gardenia, fresh peach, and beguiling citrus. The mid-notes are a classic, intoxicating bouquet offering timeless lily-of-the-valley, narcissus, sweet carnation, rose, and orris root: floral, but in no way cloying. Finally, the grounding base offers quintessential woodsy scents of deep sandalwood, patchouli, dark amber, exotic coconut, oakmoss, vetiver, and myrrh. Givenchy has been a beloved classic perfumer since 1952. Their headquarters is located in Paris, on the same street this perfume is named for.
This is a scent that offers timeless femininity in an understated, classic way. It has long-lasting longevity, so one application often lasts from the day into the night. The sillage is moderate to heavy, so a little touch of this intoxicating fragrance goes a long way toward turning heads.
