Équivoque ~ "Equivoque doesn't tick any boxes or fit any molds. Sometimes complicated, sometimes paradoxical, this elusive character hides from the bustle in the private rooms of the Givenchy Hôtel Particulier. Delicately harvested by hand, Cardamom is one of the most precious spices. Its pungent essence is obtained by steam distillation of dried seeds, in a sustainable process. It is contrasted with Assam Oud in this spicy eau de parfum, whose elegantly woody and extremely ambery fragrance is harnessed through the precise savoir-faire of experienced Master Distillers. The enigmatic Cardamom-Assam Oud accord is embellished with Malaysian Oud, Gaiac and Atlas Cedar Essences, creating a deliciously disconcerting effect."
Foudroyant ~ "Foudroyant opens the door to the secret apartment in the Givenchy Hôtel Particulier and scans the guests with a piercing gaze. “If looks could kill” makes perfect sense, and each glance is a tempting invitation to discover the house's mysteries. This amber fragrance combines supreme elegance with the most intense addiction. Aromatic notes of Cedar Leaf merge with a mysterious, woody depth. Bringing warmth, Tolu Balm from Latin America is obtained by specialists who climb the trees to extract this amber elixir. Between light and darkness, this dual fragrance is wrapped in an exceptionally pure Oud Essence, extracted with great savoir-faire by Master Distillers. Labdanum accessorizes this charismatic fragrance to create a powerfully seductive scent."
Noctambule ~ "After the stroke of midnight, Noctambule reveals a dark and mysterious side in the Givenchy Hôtel Particulier. This night owl leads the crowd to the boudoir to keep the party going until dawn. This fragrance pays tribute to one of the most iconic flowers: the Centifolia Rose. Delicately hand-picked during the month of May, the petals deliver their floral signature through both Rose Essence and Rose Infusion. Beyond this elegant floral facet, the silage unveils an enigmatic scent, associating daring rose with the earthy notes of the Papyrus Roots accord. This is wrapped in the richest Malaysian Oud to reveal animalic and woody notes. This floral-woody irreverence is dressed up with the vibrant and spicy notes of Pink Pepper and Cumin Essence."
Givenchy Équivoque, Foudroyant and Noctambule are available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum Intense, $315 each.
