Givenchy has released a new version of Very Irresistible for Spring 2012, Electric Rose, on counters this month. Kind of a tricky name, if you ask me, as the rose in this perfume is actually soft, gently fruity and sweet. The gorgeous and stunning Liv Tyler rocks the house in the new single and video she released along with Givenchy to accompany the perfume. But the perfume is more Arwen from Lord Of The Rings than tough rocker babe. Needless to say, I love it.
Very Irresistible Electric Rose is fresh and airy, very easy to wear and smells like you’ve taken a bath in a forest stream full of rose petals. Really. The gentle berry and citrus notes keep the rose from being too powdery, and the dry down is sweetly sexy, with cedar and musk. This is a simple scent, not too complicated or strange, and easy to wear. Electric Rose will be a perfect warm weather perfume and will make you smell lovely, not “perfumed”. People will want to know who smells so pretty, not who is responsible for their migraine or sneezing fit. I am actually so surprised, in a good way, as the ad copy for Very Irresistible Electric Rose had me expecting something loud and possibly nose-hair singeing. Not so….at all. This is a perfume for strong perfume haters, and would actually be perfect for a young girl. And not in a cupcake teeth curling sugary way. Just a fresh gentle good smelling way. I don’t usually categorize scents, but something in this is bringing back memories of something I wore as a teenager. And I like it.Leave a comment on this post to be entered in a draw for a bottle of Givenchy Very Irresistible Electric Rose. Draw ends at 6pm on May 4th, 2012.
