No little Cinderella
L'interdit Rouge is not a girl. She is a grown-up lady, a full-fledged woman.

While her younger sister, L'interdit Intense, dances the night away in a club, she sits in her velvet red robe at the opera, occasionally throwing a mysterious smile at the gentleman behind her. He follows her through the crowd at intermission, but only sees her put down her champagne glass and dive into the night barefoot.
Barefoot not because, like Cinderella, she's hoping for a prince to carry her shoes after her.
Barefoot because they were a nuisance to her.

L'interdit Rouge is mysterious, dark, tame on the skin - but tamed rather than well-behaved.

The sharp blood orange opening is slowly captured by the ginger spice and then gently enveloped in a tuberose-jasmine embrace; the orange blossom dances to it.

Grounded by woods and an almost incense-like patchouli, this creates a rounded composition that evokes associations of a dark autumn or winter night for me.

Rarely has a bottle or its color hit a fragrance so well!

Interdita Intensia and Interdella Rouge - Two sisters from the house of Givenchy
Spritzig and fresh fruity is the start of the "Le Rouge" for my nose and almost a little overloaded in the first moment. But then he takes back a little and the actual wonderful fragrance experience can begin.

Even though the fragrance belongs to the here and now, I see before my eyes completely different images.
I travel in my mind to the year 1910.

The two sisters Interdita and Interdella stroll along the lakeshore.
Their long, figure-hugging robes allow only small steps and from the delicate leather shoes is to be caught in each case briefly the shiny little nose under the moving lace layers under the dresses. Every movement results in a small rustle of the layered fabric and the touchdown of the leather soles on the pebble path causes a soft crunch with every step.

The fabrics are kept classy but monochromatic, the sections of the ¾-sleeves end in white lace that trumpets off the close-cropped arm.
Both necklines have a double collar between them, as if the tailor could not have decided on either alone. One encloses the neck with round flap edge, is buttoned in the middle and edged with black velvet.
Separated by some openwork lace, it is followed by a wide, pleated, collar-like ruffle band that goes all the way up the chest, as if the point of it is to somewhat hide the shapes that follow. Under it a velvet bow makes the conclusion and its loop and the ribbons sway in the movements of the steps.

The sisters are almost the same age. The younger Interdita wears her dress in black and the older Interdella a very similar one in dark red. Only the laces and edgings stand out from the dress color . In addition they carry enormous plate-like hats with cloth flowers of the same color and even the opened and over the shoulders laid walking umbrellas with the flowing lace borders are held exactly in the colors of the respective robes.

The sight of the beautiful ladies in the wonderful robes soon attracts admirers.
Increasingly, behind the two strolling ladies and at a proper distance, a larger group of very elegantly dressed gentlemen is formed, which are randomly or intentionally on the lakeshore and become aware of the two. Here is observed, admired, discovered and whispered and not infrequently acquaintances arise on these paths.
Whether it be fleeting affairs, serious relationships or liaisons forged by families, only one thing matters here: people come here to see and to be seen.

The two ladies take a seat in a small café with garden seating directly on the lake. It is time for a tea and one can risk with the sipping at the cup an endeavoring indifferent view of the way leading past or to the other tables, without the intention behind it being immediately noticeable. Of course, the sisters would like to try their luck here and catch a well-heeled gentleman as a husband. Finally they are still both in the best age, but the time does not rest.
Two gentlemen from the "entourage" seize the opportunity immediately by the crest and sat down hastily beside a lady at the table adjoining in each case to them.
Already on the way the beguiling smells of the two ladies must have struck the two and how they have wriggled through the air to them a few steps behind and tickled their senses. Seemingly by chance, one might think, but who puts on such exquisite little waters, who would certainly also like to attract attention with it.

The gentleman next to the Interdita dressed in black now immediately notices the dense veil of tuberose with a peppery tangy cherry aroma and light caramel note, which contains something in it that makes him think briefly. Doesn't the note remind him of the bakery in the old town that sprinkles toasted sesame seeds over the still-warm butter croissants? It's a delicious scent that makes him want more, and he moves a little closer, seemingly unnoticed. Through the warmth of Interdita's skin, the finest vanilla exudes its seduction in his direction, transporting his senses to a faraway dreamland and a lonely sandy beach, where he meets this incredibly fragrant lady for a tête-à-tête. While he dreams up to his glass of wine the further course of the story, is also the gentleman on the other side after adventure paint.

Opposite and only an arm's width away from the dark-red dressed Interdella, he gives himself to the pleasure of the smell cloud, which floats from it to him over. To him, the first thing that caresses his twirled mustache is a fresh and fruity note that then meanders up his nose and he too swears he hears cherries, only he imagines them swimming in a delicious syrup of jasmine and tuberose, for the scent is all soft and sensual, delicious and beguiling to him. He, too, can hardly believe what is flowing towards him. As if a densely perfumed dark red velvet would be laid over his face and he would float away in the spirit under it into the seventh heaven.

While the two gentlemen are dazedly indulging in their dreams, the ladies have long since noticed what is happening in their immediate vicinity and are whispering animatedly under the protection of their expansive hats. Giggling they tug their dress collars and sleeves, only to catch a furtive glimpse of the dreamy faces beside them.
When they finally rise gingerly from their little table to continue their walk, the gentlemen also instantly shoot up from their chairs, lift their top hats, present their most beautiful smiles and gallantly offer an arm to the lady of their choice.

The two couples first still lustwandeln side by side the way along the lake. From afar, some scraps of words and laughter penetrate through the lake breeze back to the café.
Later, the groups of two continue in different directions.
What they probably talk about?

I dared a comparison of the two "Interdit" fragrances and I personally like the "Le Rouge" better, because it is for my nose more tuned, more harmonious, softer and gesammthaft rounder. With time, this strengthens my impression even more, when on the skin an almost vanilla veil comes to lie. Then the fragrance is the most beautiful for me.

Listen, however, you can both sisters very well.
They just do not have quite the same character.

Red light?
Forbidden is the name of the perfume. EdP had left an impression of intense tuberose. EdT a bit more airy, fun-loving and with more sillage. EdP intense reminded me of sesame oil massage, except the sesame oil is sweetened. Don't want to badmouth the perfume here. Good it is and lasts a long time too. Good they all three are! Now the red baby came on the market. I like it the best. It's rounder somehow, the sweet and sour components are even better balanced. I think it's great! Definitely worth trying!

Dreaded tuberose or hot man magnet?
If you don't like tuberose in perfumes or don't even want to give it a chance, then L'Interdit Eau de Parfum Rouge is absolutely not for you. This perfume is tuberose overladed. BUT not just....
It is sweet, it is floral, pleasantly spicy and above all incredibly sexy!
This time I can totally understand the hype on social media. Although I often don't like to be guided or influenced by other opinions, this fragrance is worth every single positive review.
As already described, the fragrance starts sweet/citrusy due to the blood orange with a good dose of pepperiness, which is probably due to the ginger in the top note. So the start here is more than just successful in whetting the appetite for more. In the next stage, all the beautiful bright flowers come out AND THEN it comes: the hottest, most multi-faceted tuberose I have ever smelled in my life. But this interplay of citrusy, peppery, floral and even a little woody makes it so wonderfully interesting and seductive that you can't call it an ordinary sweet 08/15 tuberose. The L'Interdit Eau de Parfum Rouge is simply well-rounded and every single ingredient in it has been carefully selected. In fact, I would almost say that each fragrance note supports the others and makes them even more expressive.
What's more, the longevity and sillage are top notch! Certainly 10 hours on my skin and a lot longer in my hair and clothes.

But now to another question that you often come across on social media: Is the fragrance now also men-approved? I'll make it short and sweet: my partner hates it! But he has no idea about perfumes anyway.
So ladies, keep on spraying! You must like it :)

Oh là là, Givenchy...
Although L'Interdit Eau de Parfum Rouge definitely belongs to the series, it seems to me to be much more versatile and exciting than the others.
Of course, first of all: you shouldn't be at war with tuberose. Even if it is complemented here by other, beautiful notes, it is still quite present.

In terms of marketing, the fragrance seems to me to have been very deliberately placed in the dark red bottle, as it radiates exactly what the fragrance is supposed to convey: dark red, sexy, seductive, radiating pure femininity. A little mysterious and profound, royal, noble, expensive. Passion and desire.
To my surprise, he manages this with ease! It's like expensive, dark red velvet in an exclusive salon and pure eroticism.
That's exactly what I would associate with the perfume - and it never seems too much or even old-fashioned.

As with the original, the tuberose is very present, but doesn't scream as loudly. The blood orange provides the necessary citrus and fruitiness to keep the sweetness in check and soften it somewhat. Patchouli, sandalwood and allspice add the necessary spice to upgrade the fragrance from sweet flower girl to alluring and date-worthy for me. All in all, the perfume has exciting facets to offer me at every stage of the fragrance.

An ingenious fragrance for cold days, for going out - and simply for feeling good and desired.

I dislike OG L'Interdit but Rouge is very nice. The best flanker IMO. An interesting, deep + spicy-sweet floral scent.
