Givenchy has launched Naturally Chic, a new limited edition perfume for women. Naturally Chic is described as a combination of confidence and charm, sensuality and lightness.
The notes for the woody floral include lemon, bergamot, peony, raspberry, floral and green notes, patchouli, amber and white musk.
Givenchy Naturally Chic is available in 50 ml Eau de Toilette. (via facebela.com.br, krason.ru, laffayette.com.br)
Another meh from Givenchy. I just got some Oblique Rwd in a swap and it’s wonderful, making me long for the days when I was excited about Givenchy releases. Granted I haven’t tried any of the harvest flankers, but the last thing I’ve liked from the brand was Hot Couture, and even that isn’t what I think of when I think Givenchy…
Not sure we will see this in the US anyway…
Pretty bottle! I’ve got Delrae on the brain, and so this reminds me of the Delrae’s.
It is a pretty bottle.
I like the bottle too, but I am usually underwhelmed by Givenchy fragrances, and I don’t expect to feel differently here with peony and raspberry in the notes. But of course, I will sniff it up when I see it. I would love to be pleasantly surprised.
Ditto. I still haven’t smelled Eaudemoiselle though.
Robin, do smell Eaudemoiselle!
It is nothing like this limited-edition-made-for-dutyfree-shop thingies.
It is a bit old fashioned, in a late 70s early 80s style, but I’ll thake that over the givenchy travel exclusives any day!
Don’t think it’s in the US yet…if it gets here, I’ll try it!
Can’t speak for the feminine releases, but Monsieur de Givenchy is a timeless classic. It’s wonderful; a rosy citrus with a beautifully soft oakmoss and sandalwood base. The interesting thing (for me anyway) is that it’s remarkably durable and seems to get better as the day goes by.
Hmmm a new excuse to go to the mall…yep, just what I needed!
I had forgotten about Eaudemoiselle and it was on my list to try…the only other Givenchy’s I like are Eau de Givenchy, Ysatis and Organza Indecence. I stopped wearing Ysatis cos of memory association with an ex but it’s a great 80’s oriental. DH won’t wear Monsieur de Givenchy because he doesn’t like the rose part. I have read mixed reviews on Eaudemoiselle and because its being called ‘old lady’, I am even more interested!!
I was really disappointed in Eau de Demoiselle despite repeated attempts to give it a go, so am not in a rush to try this one. Indeed Givenchys generally have a strange plasticky quality that gives me a headache, though I have yet to meet anyone else who knows what I am on about.
They are just turning out more fragrances now.This one sounds like another fragrance without a soul.I couldn’t stand Eaudemoiselle my husband said it smelled like bug spray.It had that sharp hair spray note a huge no for me.I think Givency is just going down hill they lack direction.
Sad. I loved Ysatis in it’s prime, Organza, and even Amarige. I feel like Givenchy fragrances started going downhill in the late 90’s. This just sounds so… depressing. And I think the bottle looks like it belongs on a Celine Dion perfume.
Yes, really sad. I went through several bottles of Ysatis. I still like it, although I don’t have a bottle anymore.
I like the bottle, don’t mind the notes, but the name? If you are truly chic, I don’t think “Naturally Chic” is what you want to answer if someone asks the name of your perfume.
Yes, my reaction too. It sounds like the sort of name that has been mulched through a thousand focus groups so as to elimiate anything interesting or intriguing (too risky). So I suppose the fragrance will be like that too. A pity.
Did anybody already smell the juice before commenting ?
Because it really does smell good and has nothing to do with a cheap TR fragrance.
So depressing about Givenchy fragrances … and they still have some great ones (Givenchy III, L’Interdit, both in the Les Mythiques releases), but they are almost impossible to find. Instead, they give us Le Drek.
