Givenchy Organza Eau de Parfum
Advantages: smells nice, comes in a nice bottle, long lasting, large target audience
Disadvantages: not my first choice
Givenchy Organza is a perfume made by Givenchy. You will probably have seen it, with its tall unique bottle and its fancy lid, this perfume is a bit of a classic.
I must point out that I only have a miniature bottle of this, which I received as part of a gift set of miniatures a while back.
~ Price ~
Givenchy Organza is available at Boots, Debenhams, House of Fraser and most other department stores. It is also available online at Cheapsmells.com.

The 100ml bottle is available on Cheapsmells.com for £56.95 (RRP £79.00).
~ Bottle ~
The perfume comes in a tall glass bottle which curves on one side so that from the bottom of the bottle it appears to be a semi-circle shape, but then on the flat side of the bottle a ridged hourglass shape sticks out, making the bottle an odd shape.
The lid of the bottle is a gold colour and features a large curl on one side and a small curl at the other side and has a rounded shape in the middle. From the side it reminds me of a sleigh, the rounded shape in the middle being Santa's sack! It is a really nice lid and I think it makes the bottle interesting and helps it to stand out.
~ Scent ~
The scent is rather floral. I find it quite heavy, but very feminine. It seems to settle a bit to a more subtle powdery scent.
Fragrantica.com says, 'Organza is a magical mix of classical sensuality, delicacy and warmth, a hymn to eternal beauty possessed by every woman. An attractive bottle designed by Serge Manseau is the embodiment of virtues of this fragrance, which is oriental-floral, warm and sweet. It is composed of intoxicating notes of opulent white flowers: gardenia, tuberose and jasmine. The combination is incredibly exciting; soft vanilla in the base tames the voluptuous luxuriance of the floral heart.'
As mine is a miniature I have hardly used it at all as I tend to keep miniatures for occasions when I don't have space to carry a larger perfume, which tends to be on nights out, when I carry a smaller handbag or a clutch bag.
I would say Organza is more of a daytime scent rather than for nights out or special occasions and fortunately I have enough other miniatures not to have had to use this one on nights out.
I think this perfume is suitable for women of all ages. I am in my 20's and I really like this and could imagine my sisters, mother and grandmother would all appreciate this one. It is floral, but inoffensive.
I have found it to be long-lasting and overall I am really pleased with this perfume.
~ Overall ~
Overall, I think this is a pleasant, floral perfume. It has a nice bottle and a nicer lid. I would consider buying a larger bottle of this perfume, but for the moment there are other perfumes higher up my 'want list'.
I would recommend this perfume for yourself or it would make a great gift, especially as it is a scent that I think women of all ages would find appealing!
Summary: A classic!
