Givrine opens with a graceful and lively accord of aldehydes, soapy/talcum notes, lavender, other flowers (I thought of gardenia, I read there's also peony and lily), perhaps ylang and a base accord of sandalwood, vanillin and light green-fruity-citrus notes. Pretty much it, a classic floral composition "à la Provençale", not that natural but rather on the classic French style, so with a round, slightly metallic aldehydes side, still elegant and refined, although a bit dull. However it manages to stay fresh, lively, aerial, silky and soapy, developing a slightly creamy and light powdery side while remanining bright and breezy. Pleasant, understated but well-made. A cozy late-summer afternoon in a country garden.
