Be Givenchy

For the last couple of years I have been wearing Dolce & Gabana Light Blue perfume.  I got it as a gift from my old boss (and her lovely daughter) and it has been my staple scent.  I recently ran out and was thinking of trying a new, lighter scent for Spring/Summer and a few weeks ago was given a nice little prezzie from Casie of new perfume!

She had a bottle of Givenchy’s 2009 Limited Edition scent “Be Givenchy” and as soon as I spritzed it into the air (you know, to smell it) I knew it was my new summer perfume.  It’s a fruity, floral scent with a touch something musky.  I looked up the composition online and it says “Be Givenchy is created of lime, ginger and sour cherry in top notes, heart is floral and composed of honeysuckle, jasmine and orange blossom, while base introduces woody accords of cedar with musk and amber.” Perfect.

I’ve been spritzing it on in the morning and have gotten quite a few compliments on the light scent.  It’s very girly but the amber, cedar & musk really tones down the fruit scent.  I also love the bottle it comes in, a clear glass cube, with pink perfume inside, and a clear orange spritzer & lid.

I recommend Be Givenchy for a light, summer perfume.
