About Givenchy pour Homme

A new signature by Givenchy. The scent is woody and fresh with green herbs, balms and spices. The bottle was created by sculptist, Pablo Reinoso.
Confusingly, the fragrance is advertised with the tagline: "The Gentleman is back"...

Reviews of Givenchy pour Homme

With all the individual character of an airport terminal, Givenchy pour Homme runs the scintillating gamut from Ho to Hum. I acquired this one in a lot that contained what I was truly interested in - another bottle of vintage Gentlemen. A test of the orphan bottle of Givenchy PH revealed it to be unobjectionably fresh and mannered yet insubstantial, somewhat in the style of Creeds of the light and very frail-structured variety.

This is all too synthetic and phony to me. The citrus is sharp, the floral and spice are metallic and the woods are plastic. Perhaps the quality of ingredients isn't up to the Givenchy house name - who can say? In the end it's tolerable, but nothing that isn't done better by hundreds of other houses, and it's certainly nothing memorable.

I tried it before a long time ago,and all I can redeem is a nice fresh spicy and lightly woody fresh scent that is not an aquatic,better than the bitter blue version.

Givenchy pour Homme starts out with a fairly standard citrus and aromatic opening. The citrus in question is a very tart lemon or grapefruit, while the aromatic notes suggest both sage and lavender. The heart is green and floral over powdery woods, and makes a very cool, bright impression, but whatever spices are supposed to be in here never make it to my olfactory bulb. Unfortunately, this leaves Givenchy pour Homme smelling somehow empty at its center.

While the scent pyramid includes no aquatic notes, I detect something like the ozonic tang of Calone in the blend. This harsh chemical note makes Givenchy pour Homme smell too much like another dull, “clean” post-1990 men’s scent to me, and the hollowness of its heart accord does nothing to help. I’ve got to conclude that Givenchy pour Homme is just another non-descript fragrance that I don’t really need to smell again.

I dont know why but i find that this has a slight smell of ketchup in the opening! But after the drydown is does disappear eventually. Even so, i do like to wear this occasionally.

A dull little citrus that progresses to an uninteresting air freshener. Fortunately it doesn't last that long.
