This review is for the Eau de Toilette 2019 formulation. I've wanted to try this perfume for awhile. I have TONS of perfumes, but I finally got around to purchasing a small, travel sized 0.41oz spray from Sephora (I think it was $25). Verdict: I really like this perfume! It's funny because many reviews said this was a plain, boring, uninteresting scent. But, compared to today's most popular scents that are all gourmands (LVEB, Coco Mad, Black Opium, Flowerbomb, etc), Very Irresistible would stand out in the crowd. I think this could be a signature scent. I will admit, I have a thing for powdery perfumes. It is my second favorite perfume category after florals. My favorite perfume of all time is Jean Paul Gaultier's Classique EDP (lacy bottle). Classique is definitely a powdery scent, but in the best, lightest way possible. This Givenchy has a slightly similar vibe... Perhaps it is even more similar to Classique EDT than the EDP. Very Irresistible is sweet, but not exactly gourmand sweet. It's perfume-y sweet, but not too much. There's something fresh there, almost minty but not quite (I'm assuming it's the anise). The main note is rose, but I wouldn't call it a rose heavy fragrance (I really don't like rose heavy perfumes). Patchouli is listed as a note, but I really can't detect it in Very Irresistible. If I had to describe Very Irresistible it would be: lightly sweet, fresh, slightly powdery, well-rounded, and very feminine. It performs okay for an EDT. This isn't a powerhouse, but it lingers nicely. This would be office friendly. I think this is appealing and sexy... Not like bombshell sexy or femme fatale sexy, more like demure sexy. If you're looking for a traditionally feminine fragrance that isn't gourmand and is different than the rest, then give Very Irresistible a try.
