New Givenchy L’Interdit. The thrill of the forbidden
In 1957, the first Givenchy L'Interdit fragrance was created, which marked the beginning of the brand's perfumery.
Today Givenchy presents a new bold composition - the key to freedom and taste for life.
HistoryHubert de Givenchy - was an aristocrat with a flair for the avant-garde. Immaculate glamour, elegance and perfect black and white balance are combined in his bold projects.
Was this the reason that Audrey Hepburn chose him to design her wardrobe? It was a rare relationship that shaped the Givenchy House and set the direction from which the future came.
One of their most significant collaborations, between designer and more-thanmuse, was a fragrance, first created exclusively for Audrey. When Hubert de Givenchy asked if he could commercialise it, legend has it, she initially replied « Je vous l’interdis ! » ("I forbid you!").
That is the name L'Interdit ("Ban") was born and became a cult for Givenchy.
NEW AROMATIC HEARINGThe intensity born of contrasts. A forbidden blend of a white flower and a dark accord. The shocking side of chic.
L’Interdit unveils a floral white bouquet of orange blossom, jasmine and tuberose. In contrast, earthy dark tones emanate from the vetiver and patchouli.

VARNISH AND PACKAGING
The bottle design of 2018 is a clear tribute to the original 1957 bottle. An object that like perfection itself is truly timeless and terribly modern. Strikingly sober, with a round squareness, a soft strength. At once simple, deeply feminine and soft in its evocation, it also has the elegance of being tied up with a sharp seal that binds the contrasting matte grosgrain bow and the shiny logo.The box is, of course, black and white, bold, pure and simple. But inside it is scarlet, daring, surprising and carries the signature of Monsieur de Givenchy.
A new L'interdit fragrance inviting woman to cross the line and discover the thrill of the forbidden.
