Givenchy Organza Indecence was introduced in 1999, a floriental created by Jean-Claude Delville. This has become a cult classic in the original version. It is rich and creamy gourmand vanilla-amber with excellent projection and lasting power. I read in one review that it is the love child of Donna Karan Black Cashmere and Fendi Theorema - yup, that's it exactly!
Probably not a great pick for the office, but amazing for a night out or just to enjoy on your own.
Notes of mandarin orange, Jacara wood, spices, plum, amber, vanilla and musk. This is the original version of this.
From Basenotes - "Thumbs up for this one. It’s simultaneously dark, sweet, bold, modern and mature. Yes, there is vanilla here, and plenty of it. If you like vanilla, and like it used in a smart, sexy way, you’ll probably enjoy this scent. It’s a departure from the horde of boring perfumes that all seem to smell alike these days. This is something different. It breaks away from the wimpy, smell-alike crowd to deliver something bold and interesting. It has the strength and staying power of older classic perfumes while still being up-to-date."
From Basenotes - "As I write this, I am struck by the similarity of OI to Shiseido Feminite du Bois. Both are orientals built primarily on a woody base with spices and dried fruits. Where FdB focuses on cedar and cumin, OI highlights sandalwood and cinnamon. In either case, there is a comforting quality that makes me want to be enveloped in the scent."
