[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] Since it’s full on wedding season, I thought I’d drop this new Givenchy Irresistible Hair Mist in as an alternative to a full on fragrance. I love a hair mist as just a suggestion of perfume and generally, your wedding hair is as beautiful as it’s ever going to be so why not make it smell beautiful too.
I’m not a big fan of the opener of Irresistible which just a bit too fruity and pear-ish – it feels like there is an initial clash between those notes and the ambrette. However, as it settles it becomes much more subtle and skin-like allowing the rose and iris to come through to give sweet and powdery accents. I like this airy version better – I’m sure it’s just a more dilute version of the original but it shows that for my taste all it needed was paring right back. Less is more for this fragrance I think! It’s creamy, which is lovely although creamy pear isn’t something I come across often, and if you’d told me there was magnolia in this I would believe it easily. I had a quick look at my review of the original and it’s panning out the same, broadly, but I found it somehow gourmand in its intensity. Interesting also that the original fragrance has a sliver of pink ribbon around the neck and this doesn’t.
What I really do love is the bottle – that frosting and the facetted back – very romantic and smooth. If all the notes agree with the bride (or groom) I think this is a gorgeous wedding day fragrance – it’s £31.85 at Escentual HERE instead of £38.
