Description

This is such a magnificent perfume. It is truly irresistible and I find myself reaching for this perfume every day. It is at the top of my favorite perfumes. I would describe this perfume as a fruity woody floral. Givenchy has once again accurately captured the scent of rose found in nature, as it had done in Very Irresistible (2003). I love this magnificent modern French perfume! I would describe this perfume as a dynamic and mesmerizing fruity woody floral. If adhering to traditional scent gendering, the strong fruity floral character makes this a feminine fragrance. One spray is enough to have a cloud of arm's length sillage. Much more would most likely result in a sharp overbearing scent that could be headache inducing to the wearer or others in close proximity. I am one of those who get headaches from these types of scents and will be washing my arm after this review.

I really liked the musk in the base of Irrésistible, but I felt like the Virginia cedar was perhaps a bit much for this light and airy fragrance. The musk mallow would have worked better here, giving this perfume a lighter touch whilst still giving it that much needed depth and complexity that it needs like any perfume. The performance is far better than I expected. It lasts most of the day on me, easily 8-10 hours. For at least half of that time it has fairly strong projection. The projection becomes a fair bit softer, but is still pretty noticeable. This fragrance works well in any weather, but my favourite time to wear it is spring. The rose is fresh and pink. It is an easy reach fragrance for me. Great when I just want to smell pretty. I have never understood why this fragrance seemed to be completely ignored by the fragrance community when it was launched. I agree that it's not particularly unique and has a formula that every brand seems to be releasing...musky fruity florals. But I find Irresistable is one of the better of that category. When I wear it I get mostly a very musky, sweet, clean rose. It gets a little creamy as it dries on my skin. It's quite youthful, and I can see some people finding it too youthful. Perhaps more suitable to a teen than a grown woman. I find the muskiness keeps it from being too young for me. I wasn't the biggest fan of the pear note in the top notes and thought that lily of the valley might work better here instead and I felt like the ambrette or musk mallow should have been in the base notes instead of the top notes, maybe with some violet in its place in the top notes. This would have given me the full floral flush while still keeping things light and airy.Although the perfume opens with a sweet pear, it does not venture into gourmand territory. It is toned down and balanced by the iris. Ambrette bathes the perfume in warmth and gives it a comforting cashmere touch blended with the blond wood. The cedar wood gives a wonderful grounding woody element. This scent is balanced, long lasting and has good projection. It can be worn any time of the year day or night. It is multifaceted and versatile. It has been created in France by some of the top French perfumers. It makes me feel special and cared for. It is in a class of it's own. When I wear it I feel alluring, beautiful and sexy. My husband loves this on me. Oh my god, I love this. I have to preface this by saying that most of my fragrance wardrobe is rather old-fashioned, a lot of vintage Chanel and Guerlain. I really don't like a lot of contemporary popular fragrances, but I really wanted to step into the current era. I have been searching for an easy, fresh, fruity rose that's not too sweet for a year, and I just couldn't find anything I liked. I have finally found it in Irresistable. I got a very surprising 8 and a half hours wear from this fragrance and an arm length's scent bubble, despite most people only getting moderate longevity from this fragrance. My skin does seem to thankfully make perfumes last quite a bit longer than most though! I'd recommend this perfume for either spring or summer and for day wear as opposed to night wear.

The rose is blended in with the iris and pear seamlessly. The cedar and musk are nearly undetectable but help draw out the longevity of the other notes.
