WOW, what a beauty! I had the extreme luck to sample a bottle from the 90s with its original composition where the notes come through as they were intended! This is a work of a true genius! The...

Once in a while, a perfume makes a person leave the consumable goods zone and enter the world of art in their heart and mind. Obviously, this is highly subjective and, in my experience, purely...

I had not worn this fragrance in years, and opened the package with some trepidation. How badly was this chypriest of chypres reformulated? The good news is that while it has changed, it is still...

I love green. But I tried the reissue of this and did not love it. Candlewax, old fashioned and boring. Maybe the vintage was better? Reminds me of EL Pleasures.

Beautiful chypre fragrance. The opening is lovely mossy green and drydown is dry woody spicy along the lines of Calandre. The more I smell this, the more I like it. I think I'll be needing a...

It took a few tries, but this has really grown on me; I'm not first and foremost a chypre-lover. Initially I get a hit of florals, with rose predominant, but it then all dries down to a very nice...

The reformulated Givenchy III starts out bright and soapy, the scent equivalent of freshly laundered linens. As it dries down, a heart of lily of the valley emerges, which is buffered by a green...

Givency III is a beautiful sophisticated classic fragrance. For me it opens with a burst of lovely fresh flowers - makes me think of springtime, and then it settles down into a soft green powdery...

III's basenotes are fantastic, like several of the fragrances from that era. However, I like some of their topnotes, etc., more appealing rather than the greenish notes in III.

Ginenchy III, dating back to 1070, now again available, type: green-chypre. First impressions (head-note): lily-of-the-valley, rose, jasmin - the heart is very chypré and rather woody: santal,...

(This review is for the new Les Mythiques version.) Givenchy III is in that category of green florals that also contains Chanel No. 19 and Miss Dior, and to a lesser extent, Sisley Eau de Soir....

I sampled the LE remake in Nordstrom (2007) and thought it was great. I was thrilled to get a vintage bottle in a swap. It doesn't like my chemistry!!! It starts off kind of wine-y and gets sour...

A nice green chypre, a little spicy & bright green, more clear than rich. Lasts well. More pizazz than Chanel 19, but when I'm in this mood I'll wear the soft grassy green of Vetiver or the rich...

That was a great fragrance! A divine sophisticated and elegant chypre. It has been reformulated I'm afraid. That was the classiest packaging! I think that the bottle is different today...

Very nice. I think I'm a little too young for this, but I'm plenty old enough not to care! It's beautiful and lasts well. Don't judge it at first spray--this needs a good 30-60 minutes to become...

A great chypre. Easier to wear than Cabochard or Fendi and a great all year-round day fragrance. A must for every chypre lover. Timeless class and good staying power. My mom's favorite. I was glad...

Givenchy III was a perfume of my youth. My mother bought me Miss Dior when I was 17 and I liked it a lot, then she bought me Chanel No.5 when I was 18 or 19 and I didn't enjoy it, it was too...
