Have you tried a scent enhancer?

For the past couple of years, we’ve seen a handful of fragrance brands come up with custom blend boxes – where customers and mix and match scents and notes to create their own blends. Los Angeles-based Memoire Liquide and Canada’s The 7 Virtues Fragrance Company have both launched successful sets. This has been a particularly popular service at select Barney’s stores and Fred Segal. This spring French Couture House Givenchy introduces a new twist on the theme: a scent enhancer. Here’s how it works. You buy the Angel or Demon Le Parfum set that contains a tiny second bottle called the “son accord illicite”. You can wear the popular Angel or Demon scent as you normally would on the pulse points. But for an evening event or date, you add one drop of the accord illicite enhancer. It instantly adds sex appeal and creates a more prominent scent trail. That means when you walk through a crowd or room, your fragrance will be more prominent. It’s a scent trick that chic Parisienne women have known for years. Givenchy calls it “instant seduction”.


This new way of experiencing fragrance is part of Givenchy’s Art of Perfumery, the heritage and knowledge of blending exquisite scents.

On its own, Angel or Demon is an innocent Floriental Woody scent with notes of sambac jasmine, musk and fine leather accord.

But add a drop of the accord which includes a few very highly qualitative raw materials: patchouli, fine leather, white musk and amber, and the scents becomes much sexier. Simply add one drop of the accord over the parfum on one of your pulse points.

Expect to see more of this trend in the coming 12 months. Women and men love to customize their fragrances. This is evident with the success of niche fragrance houses of late. You’ll soon be able to become your own perfumer.

    I don’t need an enhancer – I use different scents for different occasions.

    What a great idea. I love that essenialy you are wearing the same fragrance day and night, but that “son accord illicite”enhances the fragrance. Givenchy have once again come up with a fragrance that is so relevant for me.

    Which women do not like to try a new fragrance? It is very sexy. Absolutely glad to try the new perfume, as i read the one of the materials is white musk. The white musk of BODY SHOP was one of my favorite when i was 14 years old. Old memories!!!
