This does smell really good, not quite a HG though. I tried the EDT, not sure if an EDP is available. Bottle is cute.

This fragrance is so comfortable to wear, even on warm summer days. In the warmer months it smells like raspberry sour ribbons, chocolate covered cherries and floral talcum powder, in the best way possible, trust me. Dry, sweet and refreshing. Men seem to really love this one! When I wear it in colder months, the pepper and woods get abit more prominent. Great for day and night. It's sensual, feminine, romantic and just delicious, without being overwhelming or overly sweet (like Flowerbomb for eg., which would kill me if I wore it in summer). I have the EDP. It's so versatile yet distinctive enough, that I've made it my signature. I can wear it anywhere. It's the scent I can just grab and spritz on when I'm not sure what to wear...first dates, job interviews, wedding invitations, boss's birthday party, etc. Just not for very casual days, it's much too sophisticated and pretty, not the scent to wear with shorts or sweat pants, not a good fit for the 'low-maintenance' look, and not for sexy nights out, it's too tame and not dark enough. But it's a scent that would work on a 'put-together' feminine-type of any age, whether she's 20 or 70. Oh,and it LASTS AND LASTS on me. Stays on your clothes till you wash them, and sticks on your skin till your next shower.

I used to wear this back in 03' and man does it bring back some memories. I only stopped wearing this and Poeme and gucci rush at the time as all my friends decided they loved these on me (especially this one) and starting wearing them and I wanted to smell different so went on a journey of spicy orientals which I love now. This in essence is actually too sweet for my taste but the heavy smokiness, vetiver and peppery notes save it and it smells divine on me. I am in love all over again. I have just managed to find a 5ml minature of this I remember this being a man magnet so will try it on the other half and see how he reacts to it. Might have to splash out on the big bottle again for old times sake...

Smell is too sweet for me. It isn't that bad of a scent, but it just seems like they had it right then someone was bumped and dropped a bunch more sugary raspberry in. The raspberry reminds me of the raspberry body spray I got from avon years and years ago (which was awesome) so I can't justify paying $80 CDN for a bottle of this.
It does seem to last long which I think is great.

This is one of those perfumes that make people stop and ask what you are wearing. I get compliments everyday on this perfume. Hands down this is one of the best perfumes I've ever owned and I wil not never get tired of it. This is my fourth bottle. I put this on early in the morning and by the evening I can still smell it. In the bottle it doesn't smell as good but once you spray it on your skin it smell absolutely amazing.

I love the smell of this perfume, but I eventually got tired of it. I don't recommend buying the bigger bottles because if you don't like it, then it'll be a waste of money. It is a strong perfume, so I don't recommend soaking yourself in it.

I gave up on finding a sweet edible fragrance that lasted and didn't smell childish and cheap. So i dropped the new scent search for a couple of years and stuck with my standbys. (Falling in Love, Coco Mlle) Then after reading reviews for Hot Couture and giving it a few tries: Yes! This scent is like a raspberry mocha, it's super sweet but rich, freshness from the berries but creamy from the chocolate/vanilla/coffee. This scent is straight up womanly, I don't know if I would say it's sexy, more cozy and romantic. Like being in a french bakery cafe that is filled with that hot melted chocolate smell and smoky breads. It stays on the skin for most of the day, I applied at 10am, and now at 7pm I could still smell it gently, but applied more to write this review :) And it lasts for DAYS on clothes. My boyfriend gave me a good hug/smell (you gotta love those) and said "Mmm you smell soft and.....goooood....what is that??" Great for the early spring weather when you want to smell girly but still cozy. Finally a new scent to wear!

I love girly, sweet perfumee so this is on roation with Miss Dior (cherie, not originale) and L'Air du Temps. It lasts very well on my skin and smells of Refreshers sweets; a lovely sherbet scent. It's not over powering but up close smells beautiful. I get a waft when I next pick up a scarf or top I wore with it.
The packaging is a bit...let's just says the bottle won't be on display once empty. However it is very functional and that's the important thing. I keep in in the cardboard box and this is enough protection for travel. I think the bottle looks cheap though; it deserves something more delicate and pretty.
I will buy this at full price if I have to in future but it is quite frequently included in 1/3 off promos in the UK so it can be bought for a more reasonable price.
Because of the long lasting scent I never need to reapply this in the day, which also makes it better value.
Based on the bottle alone (since it has no ad campaigns to get it noticed) I would never have entertained this perfume so I am glad it showed up on a perfume site suggestions based on preferences type list.
Another plus of this is that I've yet to meet another wearer. I just hope that it doesn't get discontinued because it's not popular enough.

Givenchy Hot Couture is elegant and confident! This is the perfect scent for that sweet, innocent woman with a secret sexy, naughty allure to her. A sweet smoke raspberry spiced up with vetiver. Soft hints of jasmine and bergamot with warm amber, musk, and a touch of rose. I am absolutely in love with this bewitching, glamorous, and sophisticated fragrance!

smells like juicy couture couture, smells like rasberries...sweet and warm.
