With its Couture collections enjoying success all around the world, the Givenchy launched its fragrance department in 1957 with the creation of Lâ€™Interdit. This fragrance symbolizes the friendship between the founder of the House, Hubert de Givenchy, and the actress Audrey Hepburn.
Since then, Givenchy Parfums have fostered this unique alliance of emotion and aristocratic elegance, this distinctive style which is both chic and impertinent, through a series of memorable creations: from the feminine fragrances Ysatis, Organza, Very IrrÃ©sistible, Ange ou DÃ©mon, and more recently Dahlia Divin, to the masculine Monsieur de Givenchy, Pi and Gentlemen Only, the incarnation of gentleman attitude through the eyes of Givenchy.
At the cutting edge of audacity, Givenchy Parfums has also become a major player in both make-up, led since 1999 by the vision of its Artistic Director Nicolas Degennes, and skincare, with formulas which combine expertise, innovation and ultra-sensorial textures.
For 43 years, Hubert de Givenchy has been the perfect gentleman of couture. He has dressed a clientele from young debutante to dowager in styles elegant, pure, sculptural, refreshing, lady-like and addictive. His clients are women for whom elegance is everything. Givenchy is the last bastion of quality. Clean and minimalist sportswear with unusual detailing, jersey dresses with adaptable necklines, zippered jackets, lean pants, and for evening liquid gowns and light cashmere coats.
