This fragrance brings back so many memories for me. I was in middle school and all the girls wore this fragrance. It is what all the girls would wear if they wanted to be cool. The heady, floral, exotic scent was so new to us yet was so intoxicating to our senses. It was all anyone could talk about. Giorgio Beverly Hills was THE fragrance of the 1980's. If you were a teenager, a tween or a young woman back then, then you know what I am talking about. It will bring back memories for you too.
The story of Giorgio Beverly Hills began in 1961 with the opening of the famous boutique behind the distinctive yellow and white striped frontage on Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills. Visionary and creator of West Coast style, Giorgio Beverly Hills set out to make Rodeo Drive the everyday must-visit shopping destination. Between 1961 and 2001, this ultra-luxury shopping venue embodied the Californian lifestyle, attracting Hollywood’s greatest stars and achieving unprecedented success. The magnetic pull of this luxury boutique has always attracted lovers of all things chic.
Launched in 1981, Giorgio Beverly Hills was the first fragrance from the house of Giorgio and succeeded in bringing together the spirit of the boutique with a distinctive lifestyle into a single fragrance. Timeless and classic, this signature is quite simply described as ‘the essence of Beverly Hills in a bottle’ The floral, warm and feminine fragrance appeals to women all over the world who share the same desire: to bring luxury into their day-to-day lives! Glamorous and eternal, Giorgio Beverly Hills is the very embodiment of glamorous Californian style. Giorgio Beverly Hills is an exclusive feminine and rich floral scent that captures the luxurious and glamorous lifestyle of Beverly Hills.
The top notes of Giorgio Beverly Hills are Orange Flower and Bergamot. The Heart notes are Tuberose, Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang and Gardenia. These are what give the fragrance are its signature floral scent and heavy exotic notes that I love so much. The Base notes Moss, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Cedarwood and Vanilla. It is a very complex fragrance with many notes to it with the top notes being a sweet citrus that most people can wear, the heart notes being a heavy floral that mixes beautifully with the citrus notes and the dry down is very woodsy yet powdery at the same time.
Getting a bottle of this fragrance for Valentine's Day would bring back a lot of memories to a woman who is in the 40's and 50's age group. And as I proved yesterday, the scent is still wearable today. In fact it still fits in with today's fragrance market. It is such a wonderful scent that I cannot believe I have not used it for so long. I'm so glad to have discovered it again. This is a great gift to give a woman who is in her 40's or older so she can go back in time and remember her school days. I know it brings back a ton of memories for me. All from middle school!
