Ah, Indecence, how I do love thee.
This is one of my very favorite cool weather fragrances. It is warm, spicy, rich, and creamy without being foody or cloying. Lovely notes of spice and vanilla and woods meld seamlessly, with no one note shouting out and taking charge. It's a bit linear, but when it starts this good I don't mind that it finishes the same way.
The bottle is a bit odd and seems ill-suited for the juice, but that didn't stop me from purchasing back-ups when it was discontinued. Glad to hear that Givency has brought it back in their exclusive re-releases, though I haven't sniffed to see if it's been reformulated. That would be a crying shame.

Lucky I bought a couple bottles before the prices online went waaaaaaaaaaay up. Cannot say much more than has already been said. Love it. Enveloping, sensual, simultaneously comforting and arousing. A feast for my senses.

I don't get it. Why is this such a cult favourite? I got a bottle for Christmas a few years ago and wore it for quite awhile, but it was always "like," never "love" between Indecence and me. On my skin, it's just a sweet liqueur, like butterscotch schnapps or something. It's not unpleasant, but neither is it particularly special to me. On the plus side though, I heard it's being re-released... so that's good news for those of you who did love it so much!

Let's get the packaging out of the way: I hate it.
Now for the fragrance. When I first spray it on it is vulgar and very common bordering on vile but once it penetrates my skin it is like no other fragrance I have ever tested and I ... let's just say I have a bit of a fragrance addiction. Once it is warmed by my skin (15 minutes) it evolves into a soft, creamy, spicy, resinous beauty that stays close to the skin. Very sexy and very easy to wear.

I see this recommended all the time for people who are looking for soft orientals. This stuff is a vile, cloyingly sweet amber/incense/patchouli/musk mixture. Those, by the way, are some of my favorite notes. But not like this. There is nothing soft or subtle about this fragrance. Just the thought of it turns my stomach. Much, much too sweet and heavy. Syrupy even. I would never wear this.

I love this fragrance. It is spicy (cinnamon), woodsy with a touch of incence, & dries down to a smoldering, dark, sweet vanilla on my skin. It is one of my faves & I can't believe Givenchy discontinued it! You can still find some pretty good deals online, though. Try it, before it's too late!

This one rates very high with me. It is in competition with Thierry Mugler's Angel, my HG. It's very much a scent that moulds into your own skin and lasts a long time. It's notes have been layered very well and I just love the smell f it from the first spray in the morning, to the lingering scent before you go to bed. It's a shame it's discontinued, but you can still snap it up online in certain places.

the most terrible perfume that i have tried. Because of many good reviews here, I ordered a miniature and I never want to smell it again. Maybe the main reason is that I am living in a very hot city, and it makes me feel headache. The other reason: It remind me of the cinamon + alcohol + some herbal leaves that is often used in the funeral ceremony in my country (hmm, that is true).

Ahhh...Organza Indecence... my HG fall/winter scent. This scent is full of beautiful sensuality on me. My DH adores this on me. Further, anytime I wear it to work, a different male coworker asks me to write down the perfume I am wearing so that they can go get a bottle for their wife or girlfriend. (I actually don't wear it to work very often because personally, it's sexier than the image I would like to present in the workplace.) However, some days, nothing else will do, and I put on my OI, especially during very stressful periods at work because, it may sound surprising, but Organza Indecence is very comforting to me. Anyway, I am very sad the scent is discontinued, but so glad I am fully stocked. I truly hope the folks at Givenchy will re-think this discontinuation.

I bought this unsniffed due to the stellar reviews here.
This has got to be the worst thing I've ever smelled! On me it is sickeningly sweet...beyond cloying.
The vanilla smells artificial and it is practically all I smell. I was looking forward to deep woods and amber but what I got was candy!
A big disappointment to say the least.

Indecence, so smooth, so sexy & so discontinued! From the reviews on this board this is a HG fragrance for many, what a pity that the Givenchy research & development team didnt look a bit deeper, they made a boo boo. Check out the amount of $ that bids are going for on e bay. I will continue to covet my stash, i adore this fragrance its all smooth woods, spices & bourbon vanilla pod its perfect from start to finish.

I bought it 4 or 5 years ago because I went crazy when I tried it in a department store. But when I came home I found out it was too spicy and too heavy for me, so I gave it to a friend. It is dry and rich, warm woody-spicy fragrance, without a single floral note. It is a winter scent, can't imagine something like that in hot weather.

Well, I actually really liked this perfume but alas my husband did not like the smell so I returned it. It wasn't as strong as I had thought it was going to be after reading some of the reviews and I could smell the vanilla in it....which I liked. It kind of reminded me of a vanilla scented perfume that Victoria Secrets had put out back in the mid 90s when they started doing perfumes.

This is hands down my HG fragrance. This is a heavy (in a good way), seductive, spicy scent with a beautiful vanilla note to provide just enough sweetness. No bitter tinge like the mother of all perfumes, CK Obsession (I also like CK Obsession though not as much). That's it with my chemistry - no additional notes come through. I get so many compliments when I wear this scent, from men and women. It is innocent and sweet, and dangerously sexy at the same time. I have heard the rumors that it is DC'd but I have swapped for a 100 mL bottle and I found a few 50 mL bottles in stock at a local store for the xmas season. I have enough to last a while, but I'd be heartbroken if I was never able to attain it after my stash is gone. Givenchy, you can only take this fragrance away from me out of my cold, dead hands...

Finally, a dry woodsy vanilla. While it may be strong on others, this is a soft skin scent on me; no sillage, but it stays with me. The spices are soft and comforting, and there's nothing foody about it. The bottle is amazingly cheesy.

I can't believe I have not reviewed Organza Indecence yet. I love it so much!
It's one of my favorites and sits proudly at the top of my list.
The perfect soothing autumn/winter comfort scent.
Organza Indecence is a rich smoky vanilla infused with incense, woods, cinnamon and spice.
It's a unique and very memorable scent that has nothing to do with all the vanilla sugar candy-like scents out there in the market.
Gorgeous gorgeous GORGEOUS!!!
Boo to Givenchy for discontinuing it.

I find this difficult to write as my nose is glued to my wrist. To me, this is not complex at all, but a rich vanilla and woodsy sandlewood scent. But, complex or no, this is still marvelously crafted. I am positively swooning!

Yum yum yum. Thick vanilla, plummy, oriental. I can't stop sniffing myself.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Normal, Olive, Warm Hair: Brown, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Brown
I have to praise this scent becuase it is one of the few that remains complex on me rather than a quick drydown to a single note as most do for me. To me that means a fragrance is well-crafted. It is a lovely mix of vanilla or is it plum?, spice and woods. It leans a little bit too much toward the oriental for me - but it could grow on me. I won't criticize it though just because it is not my style. It is a definite must-try. It is also pretty strong with decent sillage without being musky. I was not crazy about this when I tried it in warm weather but now it is much more appealing. Bravo Givenchy for this one! EDIT: After becoming a little more experienced with fragrance, I have lost my appreciation for this. It is seeming too sweet and stale to me now. To the swaps with it.

A lovely scent, if a bit strong - apply sparingly! It starts out a little harsh but dries down to a wonderful spicy vanilla scent. Great for winter!
For all you Indecence lovers - I found it recently at Ulta! I thought it had been discontinued, but Ulta seems to stock it now. It's on their website as well.
