Monsieur de Givenchy II fragrance notes

Reviews of Monsieur de Givenchy II

Tart, green, rich layered scent that is loaded with warm spices and florals. It's stable, linear, and classy, suitable for evening wear all year round; if sprayed with moderation, the sillage is tasteful and never offensive.
Thoughtfully selected fragrance notes are as follows:

**********
Head: Green Aquatic Note, French Parsley (Chervil), Ivy, Thyme, Orange Blossom, Basil
Heart: Saffron, Cardamom, Mimosa, Marigold, Benzoin
Base: CedarWood, Sandalwood, Mastic (Lentiscus)
**********

This legitimate, rare fragrance from Givenchy does not smell dated; I can see MdGII sit comfortably among others Givenchy tester bottles today, perhaps in a more updated container IMO. I love its wet green aquatic and dry leaf quality, with an underlying, solid spiciness.

Monsieur de Givenchy II is full of character and so understated. Recently, I purchased a brand new bottle online for a great price, which I do not regret!

Fairly difficult to find nowadays, yet not impossible if you look long enough. And if you like Givenchy's Greenergy, you'll be able to recreate the experience of MdGII to about 70% (with MdGII being nicer, IMO).

Confident thumbs up for this one! :-)

Not too many people know this cologne. The smell of this one is very similar to greenergy. It has a smooth green smell and i kind of like it.

Don't fret if you can't find this anymore. I think Givenchy re-bottled this fragrance and named it Greenergy, which is readily available, a lemon-lime fragrance with hints of peark and maybe a little fig. Very deep down in the basenotes and after drydown, a hint of Dune-like fragrance by Christian Dior can be detected, though barely. Staying power is not the best, but probably better if sprayed on in layers throughout the day. Bye!
