Evens your skin and hides dark circles, but magically, I look like I do not have foundation on!The one thing that could improve is perhaps the colour range. I have asian skin tone (yellow undertone) and I bought nude honey but it looks a bit too dark for me, but another lighter yellow undertone shade would be the lightest shade (nude porcelain) which I am sure would be too light for me.Might be a bit uneasy to blend as it has a rather thick, balmy texture, but it does not feel heavy on the skin.

This is Absolutely fabulous!! I am a gourmand lover - fruity, candy, bakery scents are my thing for a while now. Hot Couture is a Holy Grail of mine and I think this may very well be another! Delicious fruity, cherry and french pasteries - this smells sooo good!! Great for Spring/Summer. Unlike the Dahlia Divins - of which I can only tolerate the "Nude" version - no strong, over the top cloying florals. Love this so much!!

Such a strange fragrance, but in the best way. I sprayed it on me once and smelled baby powder, immediately put it back in the box & didn’t touch it for months. Now I’ve retried it and after I’ve given it a chance I really do like it. It’s more of a potpourri rose smell than a just-picked rose. I can smell a little powder, spice (licorice?) even citrus?? It changes so much throughout the day, and I love that about this perfume. And I love love love roses. So glad I have this.

The shade #01 Premiere Saison is a perfect (like, OMG!) bronzer for fair complexions. I’m about nc10 and too old for sparkly bronzers. It gives enouph colour with an elegant glow (it is not matte!) without a trace of shimmer in any lighting but is totally sheer - literally, has no opacity. Like a honey-colored translucent stained glass. Magic :) It warms up my complexion just enouph giving a very flattering “bonne mine”, but nothing remotely contradicting my overall skintone or leaving an off color stripe/blotch. I prefer the “C”-shape application (forehead-temples-cheekbones), however its subtle non-shimmery glow totally allows to use it as an all-over full face powder. This shade is in between Chanel’s les Beiges Sheer Glow in #20 and #30, and the tone of the sheen (not the color/shade of the powder but the sheen in itself) it gives is close to #30 or maybe warmer (the #20 is more pearlescent moonlit in certain lighting). I use a MUFE #156 brush (a taklon angled Sigma F40 worked as well) and I find the powder blends very well and is totally foolproof. I’d say, this shade is warm in the pan but its translucency makes it usable for both neutral-cool and warm- toned complexions, though perhaps not for very cool tones where a more pink/red-based product could work better. This translucency is great for the summertime layers of skincare+sunscreen+whatever (!)It is relatively densely packed - a heavy finger swatch gives a lot of color but the Mufe brush doesn’t take up much (hence, foolproof) or lift off dust. But one hasty morning the Mufe slipped from my hand and its handle landed with its slanted tip right into the powder, leaving a rather deep dent (like a cut, which I relatively successfully “stamped” back), but the powder didn’t crack at all outside the edges of the dent. The ingredients are very resembling of Chanel highlighter (also, Burberry powder highlighter). I really love this formula. It is talc-free (which perhaps is what gives it this magical translucent colour).A Givenchy SA told me they discontinued it- if so, it is a little disaster :( Am contemplating stashing up

I love this fragrance so much! They discontinued the edp I believe but as of this date the edt is still sold at Sephora. It reminds me of the old Coty Sand and Sable but with a more fruity citrus twist. It has light white florals dancing in the background with vanilla and sandalwood. Fabulous Spring/Summer scent!
