I bought this fragrance last December at the Dubai Duty Free. Completely forgot that I had it all this while and stumbled upon with lots other new makeup. Long story short – Givenchy L’Atelier de Givenchy Eau Parfum in Ylang Austral is my very first Givenchy perfume!
Let’s start off with the packaging. Minimalist & chic design caught my eye first. Quite similar to Les Exclusifs De Chanel collection but Givenchy has taken one extra step by encircling the cap in a silk thread to match the color of the perfume. Such a luxurious detail I’ll tell you!
Givenchy L’Atelier de Givenchy Eau Parfum in Ylang Austral has a heavy sandalwood base, ylang-ylang, mandarin leaf, notes of white pepper, musk and leather. It opens up very sweet scent and settles into a lovely woody-musky-citrusy composition which I adore. I find the scent to be feminine, soft, leafy and green. Relaxed and easy to wear but, not everyday-kind. It smell strong and stays on for 5-6 hours before fading. But you could achieve higher silage during winter. Price point wise, it’s bloody expensive (AED 995/- for 100ml) because Ylang Austral marketed under Haute Parfumerie category.
If you love something exclusive, edgy and solid, then no doubt you would love some Givenchy L’Atelier de Givenchy Eau Parfum in Ylang Austral ! At the same time you can find tons of perfumes that has same-to-almost composition for budget friendly prices.
Available at Sephora (Dubai Mall), Dubai Duty Free & Harrods stores retailing at AED 995/-
