Reviews of Organza

A grown-up floral beauty...

So, from my experience, the house of Givenchy has always specialised in making distinctly feminine perfumes. In the sense that the one this reminds me of (which my mother used to own) was Ysatis, which again was a very grown up and feminine fragrance.

With Organza, I get a sweet honeyed jasmine with supporting notes of tuberose and gardenia. There's also orange flower and honeysuckle and this really comes across as another variation on a sweet, white floral. The vanilla, amber and nutmeg, along with the soft woods, really ground this fragrance and lend it a very smooth aspect. Well-rounded and complete - nothing lacking here, very polished.

Overall, I think it's a beautiful smell. The really great thing here is that it's not really a cloying monster or a badly done fragrance in any way. It's balanced perfectly and with style. I could see this working for dates and nights out with a loved one. Not clubbing but very intimate and personal moments and occasions with a partner. I see it also as something of an evening perfume. I believe it's very sultry and womanly. I could recommend it as the quality is there. You would probably have to be okay with a white floral done well, with a hint of honey and warmth. For what it does, it hits the mark. Really quite good.

After reading the many glowing reviews and carefully considering the notes, I blind bought this, and I must say I am very glad I did, too. This is such a feminine floriental. I am very pleased with it. It does not smell quite like anything else in my collection.

Upon initial application, I could smell very fresh smelling white flowers (gardenia predominantly), and vanilla. I think I am also getting the nutmeg and walnut with perhaps a touch of amber in the dry down. Organza is very floral and very sweet. If you like florientals, but you do not like very sweet parfums, then you probably will not care for Organza very much.

One of Givenchy's best achievements -a warm oriental, perfectly blended, quiet and unobtrusive, seductive and sophisticated.

The sandalwood, amber, vanilla and nutmeg are supposedy supported by florals (Ylang, Gardenia, Peony) but they are not recognizable to my nose, simply floating in the background. Additional woods include rosewood and cedar. I do detect the cedar with its dryness and this merges beautifully with the nutmeg to accentuate that very dryness.

Turin calls it a "vanillic floral," missing the oriental quality, but does give it a deserved four stars.

Right up there with Opium as a great oriental scent.

Just as sensual as it claims to be, Organza is a remarkably delicious, spicy blend of vanilla and white florals. The amber, wood and nutty notes really warm this one up, as well as provide a lot of its depth and complexity. It's just so feminine, elegant and classy - I would've guessed it launched much earlier than the mid '90s, because it has a bit of a vintage vibe and a timeless quality. The only downside to Organza is that once you apply it, you'll be compelled to creepily sniff yourself for a while.. so, make sure you allow for enough time to get that out of your system before heading out!

Genre: Floral Oriental

Organza strikes me as an appealing and well put-together, though not terribly exciting, fruity floral oriental. Given the bombast displayed by entries in the genre during the decade that preceded it – scents like Boucheron, Giorgio, and even Givenchy’s own Ysatis - Organza’s relative plainness can be taken as a virtue.

The opening leans heavily on bergamot, which persists well into the scent’s development and puts a soft fruity finish on a floral accord that’s dominated by jasmine and ylang-ylang. Tuberose is detectable as a separate element, but does not dominate the composition, as it is sometimes wont to do. Instead the most conspicuous and lasting components of Organza’s basic structure are the vanilla, amber and wood base notes. These are well balanced and blended, so that they present the nose with a united front of sweet, resinous warmth.

For all that it lacks some of its floral oriental predecessors’ weight and ornamentation, Organza is still a relatively potent scent that offers plenty of lasting sillage. It does not cross the line into oppressively loud, but it does make itself noticed. If Organza were a car, it would be a Toyota Camry: solid and reliable but not necessarily an exciting drive.
