Givenchy has started to produce millesime versions of three of their perfumes, the New York Times magazine reports. The company looked at how champagnes produced grands crus when a particularly good crop of grapes are produced one year and applied this to their perfumes. The Amarige Harvest 2005 is Givenchy’s first ‘grand cru’ – they found that one of the regular ingredients to their Amarige, the flowers of mimosa trees had a particluarly good year last year in the Cote D’Azur. Givenchy then bought up 70% of the stock to make the special vintage and produced a limited run of only 100,000 bottles.
