Hot Couture Perfume by Givenchy, Hot Couture was introduced in 2000. This women’s fragrance is chic, sexy and oh, so French . Top notes are bright, succulent and fruity. Raspberry and mandarin are the ideal counterpoints to bergamot for an irresistibly charming scent. Heart notes are warm and layered. The spicy heat offered by pepper is balanced by the lushness of magnolia and vetiver’s dry woody scent. Hints of bitter chocolate weave through the base of sandalwood, amber and musk. The perfume projects well, even during the colder months.
