About Xeryus Rouge

A young counterpart to the original Xeyrus. Packaged in a bright red box, and a deep red bottle. This fragrance contains cactus flesh and kumquat. Surely a good sign!

The kumquat-cactus-tarragon opening is indeed unique and a great inspiration as a top note. In the drydown I get a green- flowery tone that leads into a sandal/cedar base note that is far less unique than the beginning. Nonetheless, a creative composition, although not everyone will like it. Adequate silage and projection with five hours of longevity. Tradition with a twist.

Was given this a few years ago and came to truly love it. It is an acquired taste, since the blend hits so many notes and tones. The woods and the lighter notes (kumquat and fruity, sweet red pepper) balance each other in a beautiful way. My only cautionary advice is a warnign that this blend will not work for everyone, but it mixed wonderfully with my strange body chemistry. I see the comparisons to many other red fragrances and have to say that this stands well apart from them.

Pros: Unique, Memorable
Cons: Unusual "

Unlike anything else

Very unusual scent (very unique). Smells different, in a good way. I find it suitable for a party cause i think that projects well and have a very good lasting power.

- Good projection and lasting power.
- Unusual spicy smell

- Underrated
- Not very "romantic"

I want this in my collection cause i think if one of the best of Givenchy and unlike anything else. If you are a fragrance collector or looking for some different scent, try this, can be a nice surprise.


Pros: Unusul and unique. Distinctive
Cons: Not very romantic, too spicy"

The strangest in my wardrobe

Just wore it one day so my review is brief but will be expanded later.
Mesmerizes your nose in a few seconds! there are not many scents like this and thats quality!
Almost medicinal what i got there as it reminded me off cough syrop we got back in the days its that strange sweetly syrup feeling i got.
Cannot define it but its a great lingering scent and keeps a good projection and longevity throughout the day

Never wear this actually - only on Wrist this is not a scent i feel comfortable with.

I give it 4 stars for the scent as a Scent to sniff from time to time but not for full wearing.

Pros: Unique,and Unique
Cons: Not versatile and for me not to wear"

Masculine and unique smelling, the cactus notes provide a very....mysterious appeal to this. A bit sweet and synthetic, but masculine is the first word that comes to mind.

An unusual warm fruity fragrance with a vanilla/spice drydown. Lasting power and projection very good. A thumbs UP!
