Here's a Spicy Oriental I happen to adore. Givenchy Hot Couture (2000) is a saucy, sexy, hypersweet peppery raspberry Gourmand-Oriental, the perfect combination of candy and spice. The raspberry note in it is juicy and dark, concentrated, and offset by the black pepper note, sharpening it to an urbane edge. A bold, wooded musk accord lays down the base, completing the high energy composition depicting the fast-paced fashionista lifestyle of always keeping up with the newest trends. I find it brilliantly festive for this time of year, but this modern baby is seasonless.
