L`Interdit Givenchy: LIVE Video Sniff


Post by Portia


Hey Happy Huffers,

This is one of Scott’s favourite fragrances. To be honest I’d never knowingly sniffed it. He loves it, and has loved it for years. It was really lovely of him to bring his amazing parfum find for us to do an opening video of, it’s nice to share the moment.

L`Interdit by Francis Fabron for Givenchy 1957

If you have never smelled vintage L’Interdit parfum do yourself a favour and stay far away from its loveliness. Who needs an expensive, discontinued, nightmare to find obsession?

  1. How I enjoyed this! When I was a young girl I worked near Harrods and quite regularly bought myself pure parfums from the perfume hall; this was one of them and I can’t believe how much I would splosh on – I can still smell its strawberry sweetness in my mind’s nose.

    Would it be rude of me to say how fit you are looking, Portia? Have you been following a regime? Whatever it is, you look good, girl!


    • Hey Jillie,
      Great story and nope, just a clever singlet cut. It’s kind of you to think so though.

  2. Hi Portia,
    Several years ago I found a bottle (30 ml size) of LawnTurd – IT (sorry). It was the parfum, as pictured above but half full without the label. I knew the fragrance very well (label or not) and got it for a song. On me this one is very, very persistent. I rarely, if ever, use it but it’s there if I ever need it. Besides, I love the old Pochet du Courval bottle 🙂

  3. Portia, my memory is a little fuzzy but I have a feeling I also have L’Interdit parfum tucked away somewhere. Mine didn’t come in a box so hopefully time and light has not done much damage to it. but the color seemed close to the one you are holding in your hand.
