    No, no and no. (Not catnip, Ken? You should try it!)
    One more hint to finally settle which house this is:



    Ha, I only had 2 Martell cognacs. They were exquisite.

    Crow, not catnip, seems to be on the menu...

    Anyone know who is the man in the pic last posted by Madame? I have no idea and knowing who it is would probably be a big help in solving this...this...vexingly headache-inducing, bicameral brainteaser of a puzzle.

    P.S. I am heading for a third Glenlivet 12 year old single malt scotch.

    It is the house of Givenchy.
    The man in the photo is M. Givenchy himself.

    Only Givenchy? My Givenchy? Givenchy Gentleman has to be out since a pic of Galliano was proffered...

    ...only 28+ two-word Givenchy frags to go. I have to admit I am totally lost on this one Madame.

    You, my dear, have unleashed the Kraken in me for future puzzles/clues. No more Mr. Nice Guy.

    L'Interdit? I guess that's two words. More like 1.5!

    If it's not from Irresistible line (I was thinking Absolutely Irresistible, but that was already mentioned, no?), then maybe it's Eau Torride, or Naturally Chic, or Play Intense, or maybe Dahlia Noir. Gosh, I think I need some catnip

    Or is it "L'Interdit (Original)" to distinguish it from the flawed reintroduction? The original version was made for Audrey....

    YES! Yes yes yes! Finally!
    L'Interdit are most definitely two words. You could say Le Interdit - but the French don't use "Le" right before a vowel.
    Other examples: Le cheval ( a horse) and l'eau (water, as we all know).
    Here endeth the lesson in French.

    The first pic is from a Givenchy fashion show.
    The red "no, don't, stop" circle gives away the fragrance as l'interdit means forbidden.
    The story is that M. Givenchy created the perfume for Audrey Hepburn (as Red observes) in 1957. When he wanted to release the perfume to the public later on, it is said that Audrey told him: ""Mais c'est mon parfum, je vous l'interdis !" ("But it is my perfume, I forbid you!")

    Kbe knows that the evening dress is Galliano for Givenchy. So I thought that we are on track by now. But no.
    So I posted a pic of Galliano, who indeed worked for Givenchy (starting 1995) before he left for the house of Dior. (By now I really thought everyone had it. But no...)
    So up went a pic of M. Hubert de Givenchy himself, and Audrey Hepburn to finalize it.
    By now most of you were frustrated and some were angry. (I don't blame you, kbe...)

    The new and detroyed L'Interdit is said to be nothing like the original - if any of you have tried the original, please tell!

    So: congratulations dear Red, well done! And a big hug to everyone who played this one - I admire your persistence.

    Very well, chéri, perhaps your next puzzle should be about "Unforgiven"?

    LMAO

    I can see Ken now, swirling a "proper" vintage in a brandy snifter......

    "Hmmm. A flinty note - perhaps a rock which broke several wagon wheels...... hints of good but slightly overpriced blackcurrant...... oh, my! Some nuts just brimming with allergens! This one should be on everybody's list!"

    The beautiful picture of L'Interdit with the one who named it - ample reward for our troubles!

    I have to say, I was showing some rather synthetic thoughts on this one. Once I had it, I assumed that "forbidden" was screaming from picture one, where the ladies were wearing..... LEGGINGS.....



    Hot, but strictly verboten! Leggings are SO last year. Even this spring's dogpile for long boots isn't a sure thing for fall, despite the recent fling with gnarly motorcycle boots for men. (Just my fashion opinion...)

    In any case, thanks for a wonderful and deliciously hard puzzle. And thanks to somebody else for inciting it!!!

    I have had catnip and had a cat nip. Different enough so that I definitely prefer the former.
