Cinnamon, vanilla, and WOOD. It's a wonderful warm spicy gourmand, very sweet, I can see it being awesome in winter, but it doesn't make me want to cuddle myself like BLV Notte. If that matters.

My husband and I really liked this on a magazine scent strip some years ago. It smelled like hippie incense. (This is not a bad thing in our household.) But when I went to try it at a department store counter, I was sickened by the choking clouds of it sprayed by a 13-year-old ahead of me in line. I finally decided to give it a second chance, applying carefully. Yes, it smells like hippie incense, grown expensive and sophisticated. I can see why it has many fans. But it's a bit extroverted for a comfort fragrance (big sillage is the one thing it has in common with the original Organza), and eventually I felt like my nasal linings were being slowly burned away by cinnamon. On a brighter note, the amazingly ugly bottle wasn't used when they re-issued it recently.

I have an 8 ml decant of this fragrance. I actually really dislike the bottle for some reason, so I doubt that I'll ever buy a FB, but I would buy another decant, or otherwise happily get my hands on some more of this juice.
Organza Indecence is a warm fragrance, that's fairly rich, and quite woody. I originally tried Organza Indecence because I had heard it compared to a couple other fragrances that I'm deeply in love with. It doesn't *quite* measure up to those, but it's a great compromise in terms of price. The notes include a creamy, powdery softness, with amber and vanilla, a bit of spice (especially in the top notes) from the cinnamon, an incense note I believe may be benzoin, and woody notes in which I smell cedar, though I haven't seen it in any lists of notes. The top notes (with the sharpest part of the cedar, cinnamon and benzoin (if that's what it is)) dissipate very quickly, within the first couple minutes of wearing this fragrance, but the middle and base notes have excellent lasting power. The fragrance is an enveloping, warm one, that could be overpowering in hot weather. I think of it mostly as a cool weather fragrance, or as a comfort fragrance, as I find rich, sweet fragrances to have that quality.
I think this fragrance smells great, and it works well on my skin. It's really a shame it's been discontinued and is now hard to find. That was a big mistake, Givenchy, are you listening? Bring this back!! (in a better bottle, please!)

Don't freak out - this is really not that hard to find. I bought a bottle at Ulta today and it's also at Nordstrom (in a new bottle, as part of the Mythiques line). Folks are still paying an arm and a leg on ebay but I paid the usual price at Ulta. They had several bottles.
Anywhoo, I really really love this one. I have also adored Boucheron Initial and in general l love orientals. I can't stand anything fruity or too sweet. Indecence is the scent I'd have created if given the opportunity. I love it from top note to dry down. It reminds me of a "gentler" Chaos by Donn Karan.

This is discontinued, you guys know that? I had to give this a 5 for expensive, because it's so hard to find now, and will probably get extremely pricey. EDIT: I AM IN SOUTH AFRICA, I'M SURE IT'S EASIER TO FIND IN THE US.
This is fabulous spicey goodness, but I mainly get cinnamon and a touch of dry vanilla. I put on a tiny dab or two of this (from my mini) when I'm wearing Sheer Obsession (ALSO discontinued and fabulous, dammit!). I wouldn't wear it alone, to my nose it's a bit too linear and pure-spicey. Some more amber would have improved it, but if you can get your hands on this, and you're a spice-lover, buy on the spot!

This starts out as a very medicinal scent on me, but it soon dries down to a spicy vanilla, which is very reminiscent of Musc Ravageur. The EDP is very strong, and a light application is more than enough - a single spray split between both wrists leaves not just me but the whole room scented.
The bottle is annoying and keeps falling over, but luckily I received a purse spray with my large bottle, so I can just decant into that and leave the bottle in the cupboard between refills.
I voted that I would repurchase this, but it's unlikely that I'll finish the bottle any time soon because a little goes such a long way.

Oh blarrrrrgh! This perfume made me feel so sick when i sprayed it on - it reminded me of incense & hippies. I couldnt even determine what the terrible overwhelming element of the perfume was but it made me feel ill. Its very heady (but not in a good way) and very very suffocating. It did smell "expensive" though - if that makes sense. The bottle is beyond naff. Perhaps rich hippies wear this as i dont know who else would.

One of my favorite fragrances to wear on a night out. This scent is so sexy and intoxicating.... I always get compliments when I wear this. One of my male friends is totally crazy about it and says he instantly feels drawn to me when I'm wearing it... ^__^

I like Givenchy perfumes. Organza Indecence is a fabulous scent. There is nothing exotic or "Indecent" about it - it's actually rather low-key. It's a very nice change of pace if you're tired of wearing florals. It's perfect for autumn/winter. Indecence doesn't have any floral notes - at least there aren't any detectable florals. Indecence smells like woody spices and warm vanilla. It's mellow and nice - I don't think you could wear too much of it. I typically spritz a lot on when I wear it. It's unique because I've never found another fragrance like it - it's rare to find a woodsy, spicy, warm but DRY vanilla-ish scent (not a lot of vanilla) that is ~not~ sweet or too spicy. It's just right. I think Givenchy made a mistake when they named the perfume "Organza Indecence" and put it in the same bottle as Organza which is an entirely different scent. Indecence should have a massive following but I think it wasn't a huge hit because of the poor marketing. I've heard Givenchy is re-launching it this year, which is great news. I just pray that they haven't re-formulated it! I buy Indecence over and over again. It's a masterpiece.

A rare love-on-first-sniff. Got a decant in a swap and now absolutely have to get a full bottle. It seems what I truly love are comfort scents, even though I was trying to be all dark and mysterious by sampling all the dark and mysterious scents :) This stuff is so soothing and extremely long lasting - more than 5 hours and I was still catching whiffs of it. Agree that the bottle is verging on the vulgar, but anyone wanna help me with a reliable Ebay seller that sells this authentic?

This is a really pretty fragrance; nothing exotique about it, but in this world of fruity florals, it's wonderful. Sweet vanilla and woods perfectly balanced.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I think like all Givenchy perfumes, this is also very long lasting and smells wonderful!. Always get compliments when I wear this perfume. I like the dry down much better than when initially applied.

"Outrageously good," is the perfect way to describe this. I wanted to write this review to say that on my skin when srayed directly, this is a tad overwhelming, but srayed in the air and walked through, this fragrance is my HG! It is warm, sweet, with a hint of spice. BEAUTIFUL!! Do try it!

The name is silly and the bottle is ugly as sin, but this is one of the most easily attractive cold-weather scents I've tried. It's exotic woods, spice, and just the right amount of sweetness. It reminds me a little of Black Cashmere with the volume turned way down so it is mellower and sweeter. Not the most challenging scent but perfect for when you just want something that smells outrageously GOOD.

Did the person who designed the bottle get the sack?
Because it doesn't want to stand in an upright position as it is supposed to!!! The idea of the bottle itself is not bad and the black and turquoise box is OK too, but I do feel sorry for all those people who's Organza Indecence ended up smashing on the ground.
The fragrance smells great at the beginning but after a few hours turns into something really unpleasant. The following morning I can't stand it on my clothes.
If it only stayed woodsy all the way through, I would repurchase.

I bought this after only trying it on once, partly due to the reviews here and partly because I had to travel to a somewhat distant mall to get it and didn't want to go all the way out there again! Normally, I need to try on a fragrance at least 5 times to know how it really smells on me. Well...I should have tried this one out for longer! WAY too sweet/cloying for me. I don't even think vanilla is one of the notes, but it's very vanilla-y on me. Makes me feel nauseous. In fact, I am hoping to be able to return it.

Madagascar vanilla, a hint of patchouli incense, some comfort spices, very comforting. Slightly boozy, and I even get a little hint of cocoa. Definitely to be applied lightly - one could easily go into diabetic shock with this, incense or no. That said, I'll definitely be angling to get more of this into my collection!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous woody-vanilla scent that somehow manages not to be too-sweet or too little-girl like so many other vanilla scents can. (For the record, I hate candyfloss scents like Pink Sugar but adore the vanilla in Indecence.) It's definitely a cold-weather scent for me, manages to be both incredibly comforting and oh-so-sexy, and has lovely sillage and drydown. Just be careful not to over-apply!

If you like FM Musk Ravageur, get this. If you like Hermes Ambre Narguile, you should sample this. If you are looking for patchouli and vanilla, this 'ain't' it (can't really pick patch up as a note here although there is plenty of vanilla). I simply don't remember when was the last time I enjoyed wearing a fragrance this much-- and I wear tons of fragrances, some of which are way pricier than this! This is what I wanted Musk Ravageur to smell like. This is ten times better than FM's Musk Ravageur and can be found for much less on the Internet. This has cinnamon, jacaranda wood, patchouli (supposedly because I can't smell it here), vanilla, musk (barely there), and amber. The patchouli is not very evident on me, it simply doesn't surface on my skin. The amber is not dirty and it's well in the background. I get mostly a woody vanilla and a cinnamon note from this perfume--- with a hint of musk. This is sexy, but not as aggressive as Musk Ravageur. Instead, this is warmer and more pleasant. This, in my opinion, is more comforting to the wearer than MR. Indecence will make it to my top favorites this winter. I have to warn you that this must be sprayed on with a very gentle light touch. Don't give yourself a full spritz of this. Instead, lightly tap the 'spritzer thingy' and aim a few tiny drops of juice on each arm, cleavage and wherever else you apply your fumes. You might not smell it much at first, but this scent is a grower. Once this starts opening it can be overpowering and cause you a headache if you overdo it with the spritzing. A few tiny spritzes is all you need. Also, this is most definitely a cold weather scent for me.

In my opinion, this is one of the most gorgeous scents around. It is rich, warm and exotic with its woody vanilla notes. It is quite strong and lasts exceptionally well, so it's certainly best not to overdo this one. I think it's the perfect winter fragrance as it's so warming to the senses. Also quite sensual and alluring. One of my favourites.
