Givenchy launched its Irresistible fragrance collection back in 2003, and it has since become a firm favourite. The best Givenchy Irresistible perfumes combine elegant rose notes, delicate fruits, and seductive smooth woods to shroud you in mystery.

The Givenchy brand started in 1952 when Hubert de Givenchy opened a Parisian couture house that started the casual chic movement. The following year his rendezvous with the irresistibly charming Audrey Hepburn inspired him to create a fragrance just for her.

The launch of the Givenchy commercial fragrance, L’Interdit, in 1957, and this iconic brand has been reinventing itself ever since, bringing you a plethora of enticing aromas.

6 Givenchy Irresistible Perfumes

Paying homage to the elegant aroma of rose, here are six of the best Irresistible Givenchy perfumes that ooze style and femininity.

1. Irresistible Eau de Toilette

Review

Launched in 2021, Irresistible Eau de Toilette by Givenchy introduces the sparkling aroma of rose essentials from the Isparta Mountains in Turkey. It is surprisingly bright and airy, playing on an opposite note of cedarwood.

This fragrance opens with sweet, fruity blackcurrant bud and white tea that leads to an explosive heart note of sensual rose.

The longer it stays on, the more the base notes of aromatic and earthy cedarwood and white musk stimulate the senses. Settles to an exotic, musky rose scent with a woody backdrop similar to Burberry Brit Sheer.

Top Notes:

Blackcurrant Buds Absolute, White Tea Accord

Mid Notes:

Rose, Iris Butter

Base Notes:

Cedarwood Essence, White Musk

Seasons & Longevity

A perfectly fresh accompanying fragrant for spring and summer months that wears well from day into evening. I would wear this as a casual or formal scent, as the musk adds a little oomph!

Projects well for the first hour and then slowly fades after 3-4 hours.

Seasons: Spring,Summer
Longevity 4+ hours

Benefits & Drawbacks

ProsDelightfully fresh feminine scent packed with pretty roses.
ConsDoes not last as long as others in the collection

2. Irresistible Eau de Toilette Fraiche

Review

Givenchy Irresistible Eau de Toilette Fraiche is a sexy and youthful EDT launched in 2021 that shrouds you in delicate rose, powdery iris and zesty orange oil.

The opening of energizing pink pepper and fresh citrusy aromas are warm and uplifting. A heart of sensually romantic rose mixed collides with powdery/creamy iris.

Dries to reveal a discreet base of warm trails of musk-coated cedarwood that finally settles to a zesty and powdery rose scent with musky edges.

Top Notes:

Pink Pepper Extract, Sweet Orange Oil

Mid Notes:

Rose, Rose water, Iris Butter

Base Notes:

Cedarwood Oil, White Musk

Seasons & Longevity

Irresistible Eau de Toilette Fraiche is perfect from early spring to late summer and leans more towards being a casual daytime fragrance, in my opinion. Think shopping trips, lunches, and is even office safe.

Longevity is 4+ hours and trailing lightly with intimate/moderate sillage without overpowering your surroundings.

Seasons: Spring,Summer
Longevity 4+ hours

Benefits & Drawbacks

ProsAn elegant rose fragrance with powdery iris and musk
ConsDoes not project very well, so best for intimate occasions

3. Irresistible Eau de Parfum

Review

Irresistible Eau de Parfum (2020) is a playful contrast between two opposite accords of luscious rose and pear accord to give us a bold uplifting fruity, floral scent.

A fresh, youthful opening note of sparkling pear is warmed by mature musky notes of ambrette. The heart of the fragrance reveals a heavenly rose note and the pulsating aroma of powdery iris butter.

Upon dry-down, a woody base adds smoothness. Settles to a fruity-floral combo of juicy pear and rose scent with sensual musk and a touch of powder.

Top Notes:

Pear Accord, Ambrette Absolute

Mid Notes:

Rose, Iris Butter

Base Notes:

Cedarwood Essence, Blond Wood

Seasons & Longevity

Irresistible Eau de Parfum is versatile and can be worn during spring, summer and fall. I advise using this more of a daytime-only fragrance.

This long-lasting fragrance will give you 5+ hours of wear with moderately strong sillage and projection. Also, consider Coach Eau de Parfum.

Seasons: Spring,Summer
Longevity 6+ hours

Benefits & Drawbacks

ProsA beautiful blend of fruits and roses that will get you compliments
ConsThis EDP is more for daytime-only fragrance

4. Live Irresistible Eau de Parfum

Review

Live Irresistible Eau de Pafrum is a fruity floral fragrance that combines tropical pineapple with sensual rose. This fragrance was created by Dominique Ropion in 2015.

This fragrance opens with sweet fruity notes of tropical pineapple that soon merge with classically sensual rose aromas in the heart.

As Live Irresistible dries down, it reveals a base note of warm, comforting amber and a touch of chocolate. Settles to a sweet tropical fruity/floral scent.

Top Notes:

Pineapple

Mid Notes:

Rose

Base Notes:

Amber

Seasons & Longevity

An intense Eau de Parfum that activates spicy notes with warmer body temperature makes this an easy fragrance to wear most of the year.

Longevity is 6+ hours with solid sillage and projection, although it tends to fare less well in the winter.

All Seasons
Longevity 6+ hours

Benefits & Drawbacks

ProsA head-turning scent that blends rose with tropical fruit and a touch of chocolate
ConsNot a full-on winter fragrance but works for most seasons

Review

A delightfully fruity, floral aroma that is very irresistible, very French, and very elegant! A modern fragrance with five romantic roses plus aromatic spices. Launched in 2003.

Opening notes of anise intensify this perfume with sweet aromas of liquorice, and its heart releases a plethora of roses, playfully mingling with the anise.

This fragrance dries down to sensual and elegant base notes of patchouli and vanilla, finally settling to a liquorice/rose scent with a touch of musk that I found utterly elegant.

Top Notes:

Star Anise

Mid Notes:

Roses

Base Notes:

Patchouli, Vanilla

Seasons & Longevity

An easygoing perfume that can be enjoyed yearly for any occasion, admired and regaled by day or night, it has a long-lasting presence.

Very Irresistible Eau de Parfum will last you 7+ hours with good sillage that trails behind you to leave a traceable presence.

Seasons: Autumn, Winter, Spring
Longevity 7+ hours

Benefits & Drawbacks

ProsElegant, feminine, modern, and lasts incredibly well
ConsNot for those who don’t love anise/liquorice

6. Very Irresistible Eau de Toilette

Review

Keeping in the theme of roses, Very Irresistible Eau de Toilette is a fresh rose fragrance that reminds me of fresh dewdrops moving from petal to petal.

Star anise brings a hint of sweet aromatic liquorice aromas quickly joined by a heart of a flirtatious blend of oriental peony and graceful centifolia rose.

This exuberant rose fragrance is refreshed by citrusy verbena in the base. Finally, it dries to a light, clean, sweet and fruity scent.

Top Notes:

Star Anise

Mid Notes:

Peony, Centifolia Rose

Base Notes:

Verbena

Seasons & Longevity

It’s a perfect light, refreshing rose fragrant for the summer months that you can enjoy on any occasion. Has similar elegant rose aromas as the Miss Dior fragrance collection.

Performance is reasonable, with a longevity of 4+ hours and a soft to moderate sillage that is intimate. I recommend you overspray this one to boost performance.

Seasons: Spring,Summer
Longevity 4+ hours

Benefits & Drawbacks

ProsA VERY pretty fragrance that gives Miss Dior a run for its money
ConsYou will need to overspray to get decent performance

Ingrid’s Top Pick

best Givenchy Irrésistible perfume

Irresistible Eau de Parfum

My top pick is Irresistible Eau de Parfum, as the pear note adds a moreish sweetness to the elegant rose and the powdery iris soothes the sensual woody base. Simply wonderful!

Conclusion

The Givenchy Irresistible collection is undeniably popular yet does not conform to the overly sweet, powdery traditional rose fragrances you would expect.

I love how Irresistible plays with opposite notes to contrast the floral concept, such as anise and woody notes, amplifying fragrances that provide the ultimate aroma of femininity.

Performance vs performance is excellent, and the price range is between £48/$55 to £83/$95. Bottle sizes range from 30ml/1.0oz to 80ml/2.7oz, depending on the fragrance you purchase.
