First ive heard of this. Im a fan of both Play and PI. Good to hear. Come to think of it, I dont recollect a leather note ive come across from givenchy.
Thread: Givenchy Play: Leather Edition?
Has anyone tried this new release by Givenchy?
Bottle can be seen here: http://www.harrods.com/product/given...=search-result
Here's the info about them at NST: http://www.nstperfume.com/2012/05/04...ew-fragrances/
"Givenchy has launched Les Créations Couture, a new set of five limited edition “revisited” fragrances inspired by lace (for the ladies: Very Irrésistible Givenchy Lace Edition, Ange ou Démon Le Secret Lace Edition and Organza Lace Edition) and leather (for the gentlemen: Pi Leather Edition and Play Leather Edition)."
"Exquisite variations of five iconic House fragrances, all reinterpreted by their creator, the “Les Parfums Couture” collection embodies the quintessence of Givenchy luxury. Exclusive for one season, their compositions are inspired by textural effects and “textile” sensations."
Anyone going to Harrods anytime soon? I'd love to hear more about this, as I actually really think Play is a good fragrance and the idea of adding leather to it is awesome.
WOW, 80gbp for 60ml
Interested to try both of these... might just have to go blind
I kinda like that bottle. Worth sampling I suppose. But Suppressor hit the nail on the head, Play opens quite nice, but gets freakin' borrrrring as it dries down.
Yes, yes, but when is the Play: Leather and Whips Edition going to be available??
wasn't aware of either ... thanks for the heads up SOS & d4N13L ...
Is this in Macys yet or will it be?
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
1st I've heard too. Thanks for the info., looking forward to trying them.
Hmmm.....this sounds interesting. I am not nuts for either Play or Pi, but heck, why not sample a leather flanker of each ?
Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Midnight in Paris EDP, Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.
Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.
Please PM me !
I actually tried this today on a whim. Bear in mind I have no idea what the original Play smells like, but Play Leather smelt somewhat like a variation of Bulgari Black. Somewhat rubbery, tonka-ish, and vanillic. I quite liked it. Reminded me of Midnight in Paris. I also tried Pi Leather, but regretingly my nose was working overtime and I couldn't smell a thing.
Looks interesting. Every house is jumping on the Prive, Exclusif, Collection wagon.
Want to trade - Chanel Platinum Egoiste for Dior Eau Sauvage...
Did you notice a smooth orange/mandarin citrus note up top? That's quite prominent in the original, along with a smooth and only slightly sour grapefruit note.
Very interesting!!! Thanks for the info!!!
please guys tell me more especially about pi leather edition, some guys said that its the same as pi just in another bottle and others said its different now whom i should believe
Finally tried this one at the bay definitely do get the blast of leather on the top notes quite synthetic and sharp. Afterwords settles into something more similar to Play Intense, and finally settling with Play with a faint leather note. Personally, not even close to being worth the extra cost. Get regular play instead (which is a fragrance i have recently learned to enjoy)
The hunt for a Signature Fragrance is not an easy one! I see the light at the end of the tunnel! Edit: 2015... I've given up and given in

Looking for swap: Lolita Lempicka Minuit, Aqua Di Gio Essenza, Boss Bottled Intense, Bond No 9 I love NY for all, Bvlgari Man Extreme, Calvin Klein Reveal, Decants of D&G The One EDP
Tested this out , and ..... it SUCKS, I mean really it is not worth the cost and a very poor usage of leather.
I Know the Givenchy line catches slack on some of these sites but I love Givenchy play and Get complimented on it when I wear it. I am looking forward to testing this soon.
I tried as well and IMHO not worth the money as it is virtually the same as Play Intense. Keep in mind that Play and Play intense is such a synthetic fragrance that it must be very hard to change it "plastic" like direction.
Yet the leather is present in the mixed mess during the first hour or so, not the best leather either but surely modern and psychedelic. To some extent it reminds me at a cocktail of knize ten+bulgari black+cheap vanilla+sweetener. Unwearable during daily and routinely life but good for clubbing.
The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.
