    Hello all! I have just two questions about Givenchy. First, i'm not compltely sure how to say it! Is it really just guh-vinch-ee or is there a spin to it?

    secondly, can anyone name and pronounce the name of the perfume he dsigned for Audrey Hepburn? maybe midnight*golightly could help with this?

    :unsure: are you sure about the spelling?

    if correct, then it must be :Lenterdi , just like that , very easy

    (never pronounce the T at the end of French words ;) )

    Hi, the way you pronounce L'Interdit is: La-Tra-De. I hope this helps.
