In 1975, Givenchy graced us with the presence of Givenchy Gentleman – a unique blend of cinnamon, Russian leather and tarragon. But fast-forward to 2017 and Givenchy have recreated the classic for the modern man, Gentlemen Givenchy (£48 for 50ml, £66 for 100ml). Not sure whether it’s for you or your partner? You’re about to find out…
1. He’s a real gent
This scent was made for the proper gentleman – one who is a massive charmer and ALWAYS messages you back. Yes, Gentlemen Givenchy embodies that ultra-masculine, self-assured and free-spirited man, but still smells gentle and seductive. Isn’t that the most perfect mix EVER? We think so, too…
2. He wants to smell timeless
Some scents come and go, but others will stay with you a lifetime. And this is true for Gentlemen Givenchy, which features the delicate and spicy blend of pear, lavender and leather. How cool? And it all seems quite subtle, until you get the wafts of the black vanilla, which leaves you with a bold and sweet undertone. It’s what we like to call a woody-floral scent, just in case you want to shout it from the roof tops.
3. He has immaculate taste
It goes without saying that any guy who wears Gentleman Givenchy as their signature scent has the GREATEST taste. It’s up there with the effortlessly modern and sophisticated scents – and just look at the trendy bottle (we can’t stop staring at it). So when you have this on your fragrance shelf, you know you’ve made it in life. Sport it at office meetings right through to drinks with friends. We’re obsessed.
