Lovely complex perfume, not too sweet, good lasting power
I didn't put a price, if only because the price for perfume ranges so much. i.e., you can buy it at a b & m department store, or from an online discounter, or on ebay Suffice it to say that Givenchy is a fairly, yet reasonably, expensive brand.
Organza has been my signature scent for some years now. Even though I suck at describing perfumes...hmmm...what I like about it (and many another Givenchy scent) is that it's complex. It doesn't thump you over the head with only a few notes. It's sweetish and floral, sitting atop a warm base of woods and a little spice. I smell a tad of vanilla in there too although it seems to me that no online description of it mentions vanilla.
It's also long-lasting and concentrated. I cannot abide a scent that fades quickly, nor one that requires you to slather it on. I'll pay more but I want my money's worth.
The pretty bottle is actually quite practical. Your thumb just naturally goes into the waistline of the gown...a small detail, but it's small details that distinguish excellence.
