Givenchy has launched Les Créations Couture, a new set of five limited edition "revisited" fragrances inspired by lace (for the ladies: Very Irrésistible Givenchy Lace Edition, Ange ou Démon Le Secret Lace Edition and Organza Lace Edition) and leather (for the gentlemen: Pi Leather Edition and Play Leather Edition).
True to its dual heritage as a major fashion house and historic perfumer, today Givenchy celebrates the most precious of marriages between couture materials and olfactory compositions, in a new collection of fragrances.
Exquisite variations of five iconic House fragrances, all reinterpreted by their creator, the "Les Parfums Couture" collection embodies the quintessence of Givenchy luxury. Exclusive for one season, their compositions are inspired by textural effects and "textile" sensations.
The Givenchy Les Créations Couture fragrances are available in 60 ml, and can be found now at Harrods in the UK (£80 each) or The Bay in Canada ($125 each).

Givenchy’s fragrances for men have generally disappointed me, the entire lines for Pi and Play being the worst in my opinion. Of the others i have tried, i have been most impressed with the old Xeryus and Xeryus Rouge. A leather edition of one of those might be worth trying.
I like Pi, but Play I can live without.
It’s been a long time since I played with Givenchy’s scents. When I was younger I wore “L’Interdit” and still love it. It’s hard to find and I’m not sure whether or not it has been discontinued. Would appreciate an update from anyone who knows about it.
If those new scents are available here in the South, I’ll probably try them.
Another one I remember had a puzzling name “Le De”. Makes absolutely no sense in French or English. (-:
They had a few greats. Not so thrilled with their modern output, although their harvest series was really well done so there’s reason to hope for these.
L’Interdit was reissued as a part of the Les Mythiques Collection a couple of years ago. This is its third permutation and may not be exactly like the original. Le De is very puzzling as a name. Apparently the “De” comes from the name of the founder of the company, Hubert DE Givenchy.
L’Interdit isn’t part of this collection though…
