Parfums Givenchy was born out of the encounter between Hubert de Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn, which led to the first fragrance, L’Interdit, in 1957. Givenchy infused a style with light-hearted sophistication that would mark the spirit of the house’s creations forever. A pioneer with the launch of the first men’s fragrances in the late fifties, at a time when men were just beginning to discover the pleasures of perfume, Givenchy imposed a style. Today, Parfums Givenchy has a roster of modern muses like Liv Tyler, Uma Thurman and Justin Timberlake and star products like Phenomen’Eyes mascara. Givenchy fragrances, cosmetics and skincare are a precious as Couture –with seemingly personalized formulas that are modern in innovation and high in performance. They’re a blend of French-style elegance with American-style spontaneity, plus a touch of something very chic, very irresistible and very Givenchy.
