In 1975 Hubert Givenchy released his first fragrance for men the timeless Givenchy Gentlemen, a sophisticated and classic scent. Going on 41 years, the gentleman of today leads a very different life but his need for refinement lives on. The latest fragrance by Givenchy will take the modern man on a journey into new olfactory territory where he will captivate and be unforgettable.
Fragrance name: Givenchy Gentlemen Only Absolute
Fragrance Notes: Bergamot, saffron, nutmeg, cinnamon, sandalwood and vanilla
Described as: a woody spicy oriental scent. The fragrance opens with fresh top notes which then round out to a woody fragrance on the skin. Its vanilla base adds sensuality to the fragrance and allows it to leave a captivating imprint that lasts on the skin.
Wear it: Described as the ultimate evening fragrance, it can be worn any season at night. I’ve been wearing this fragrance during the day but would recommend it only during the cooler months due to its warm composition.
Price: Givenchy Gentlemen Only Absolute Eau De Parfum 100ml RRP $145. Available from Myer, David Jones and Sephora store nationally.
The verdict: There is something very familiar and endearing about this fragrance that I just can’t put my finger on. This masculine fragrance opens with a burst of freshness with metallic accents. This fragrance is refined, opulent and leaves a lingering trail which will last on the skin all night. Its Eau de parfum composition means a little goes a long way with this fragrance so use it sparingly. The fragrance is housed in a matt black bottle with transparent walls. It features a red silk label which bears the touch of a luxury garment and a shiny black topper which adds a dash of contrast and refinement. Givenchy Gentlemen Only Absolute is perfect for the masculine and refined gentleman who attends black tie events, VIP launches and works in an environment where he can’t afford to go unnoticed.
