Perfume Performance Art

This lovely perfume salesperson is my favorite fragrance devotee. She agreed to pose for a series of saucy shots.

This one is called The Goddess of Givenchy.

Here is the Frisky Maiden

And finally we have the Coy Damsel

Next week, if she is still speaking to me, we may add the Duchess of Dior, the Femme Fatale, and the Noblewoman.

The Goddess of Givenchy sold me a bottle of Hot Couture, which she loves. I love it too, & have spent a few days wearing it.

Hot Couture ~ a play on Haute Couture
The House of Givenchy

Citrus, Green Leaves, Iced Magnolia Blossom, with a touch of Musk, in an Amber Sandalwood base.
An unusual, almost nonchalant scent that works well in daytime as well as under the stars.
Hot Couture is not a typical floral Givenchy, here the floral aspect is very subdued. It has a very light pleasant, crisp 'berry sweetness' without being sugary at all. More like fruit warmed on the vine, in the sunshine. It stays close to the skin. It has warmth and lasts a long time without being at all soapy or powdery, a well-blended freshness with a lovely long drydown.

Audrey Hepburn was a close friend of Hubert Givenchy. He designed the key pieces in her personal wardrobe and the costumes for many of her films, most notably "Breakfast at Tiffany's" I loved the way Audrey pronounced Givenchy when she spoke of him. Jhzee - Vahn - Shee with a very slight accent on the last syllable.
