Check out the latest fragrance from Givenchy, ‘Gentlemen Only’ feautring Australian actor Simon Baker – probably best known as Patrick in The Mentalist (do you watch that? I’m giving it a shot this weekend…).
Gentlemen Only is a modern homage to the classic fragrance of the house – Givenchy Gentlemen from 1974. This fragrance was once revolutionary amongst masculine fragrance introducing strong and intense woody notes instead of the traditional aromatic and citrusy ones.
Gentlemen Only is based on the classic ‘Givenchy Gentleman’ – a really rich, almost oily fragrance that my granddad used to wear. I’m glad it’s had an update – I wouldn’t wear the old one but Gentlemen Only seems right up my alley.
This sounds like a nice statement fragrance for Summer, a differentiating point during a season when most guys switch to acidic, lemon-y fragrances. There’s something to be said about wearing a deep, spicy fragrance during a warm evening.
In more exciting news…
To celebrate the launch, Givenchy currently has an instant-win competition (that means no waiting around!) where you can win a trip to New York or a bottle of the fragrance.
