Reviews of Very Irrésistible for Men Fresh Attitude

Minty-angular plastic Givenchy's "stardust allure". Fresh Attitude is an hyper glamour/synthetic Givenchy's "experiment" on the cedarwood's theme based on the game of juxtapositions (minty-citric patterns, ozonic molecules, coffee-hazelnut). It is a flanker of the classic Very Irresistible For Men which is a semi-gourmand more properly sensual-warm, still minty-gourmandish but devoid of ozonic/exotic (kind of mohito-conjuring) elements. Fresh Attitude smells really close to Guerlain Homme Eau Extreme (being furthermore conceptually close to Mugler A* Men Summer Flash) and follows the trend of freshly sensual semi-gourmand laundry/angular aromatic scents which combine fresh/mentholated sparkling-angular notes with synthetically warm and sensual "tasty-toffee like" patterns. The opening is super mentholated (yet by coffee beans influenced) and mellifluous-chic with the by soon heady contrast between hesperidic mint (lavender, mint, basil, coriander and citric aromachemicals) and "nutty/suede veined coffee beans" vaguely oozing several L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme's sparks (despite the latter is far more refined and kind of luxurious in style). Along the way metallic-marine vibes and a more properly cedary (musk-ambroxan oriented) feel take the stage orienting the aroma towards something more conventionally woody-salty (kind of cedary-ozonic) and far less gourmandish (though still aromatic-nutty and kind of waxy-lipstick-like). Fresh Attitude follows the Very Irresistible For Men's glamour-chic (deliberately) hyper/synthetic theme and exactly over this category it should be assessed and properly located (laundry-sugary suede, kind of suede-like waxiness, menthol-chic soapiness, game of contrasts, juxtapositions between angular-fresh and silky-gourmandish synthetic notes). A classic example of Givenchy's style (Very Irresistible, PI Neo, Dahlia Collection, Ange ou Demon). A typical post-modern clubbing solution which could not surely allure the straight forward lovers of tradition.

More than irresistible, this is just very, very, very plastic and synthetic in the wrong meaning – smelling like something which just popped out of a futuristic complicated industrial machinery. I get some nuances that with quite some stretch and fantasy, may be connected with the notes listed (citrus, coffee, cedar), but above all I get a really loud concoction of pure plastic, with laundry-fruity-citrus nuances. Mostly due to musk and citrus, I guess, and something vaguely floral. The only notes which smell acceptably “realistic” especially after a while, are cedar and lavender. With the right name and the right marketing concept, this would be easily a best-seller among the “post-modern futuristic side” of niche perfumery. As is, it’s just more a depressing, Calvin Klein-esque mainstream fizzy burp with no interest, no depth, no taste (both meaning “no class” and literally, “no specific taste”). Surely it is a “fresh” watery version of Very Irrésistible though, as I get some connection to the original - and no, not that better - version, so at least that part of the name is realistic and won’t disappoint you. As for the rest... meh.

Another scent I've owned since it was released and is now discontinued...

Anyway, what I get when first applied is a nice, fresh, citrusy scent with a touch of wood and a dash of floral. It's nice for anywhere from 1-5 minutes, then I get a powder-bomb of a dry down that I have yet to match. It rivals the most powdery fragrances I've ever worn or smelled.

If that's what you're into, or you skin chemistry/nose is more tolerant of this juice more power to you.

The grapefruit-mint opening is loaded towards the sweetish-grapefruit on my skin, but in spite of the evidently synthetic nature of these top notes the overall impression of the opening blast is not bad. Then it becomes rather dull, with a green-woodsy drydown that mixes the generic with the expected. Silage and projection are all right, and with nearly six on me the longevity is very respectable for this somewhat summery scent. I am not surprised is was discontinued after only a few years.

Fresh? Attitude? Aplenty !

No need to analyze notes here. Lest you fall for any marketing ploy about "coffee" (???). Simply, this tropical fruit punch, set against woody, balsamic basil, has got GAME ! True, a flirty head-turner like this, may not work for everyone. But this is nevertheless both novel for once, and appealing... Due in part to it's surprising potency and depth. A stand-out in a sea of wan puppy-dog juice aimed at a younger audience. (Anne)Flippo and (Pierre)Wargnye inject just the right nuance of mint -To buoy this otherwise "strident" mix, atop the cool stratosphere of Givenchy luxury.

This is a big step (imo), above other comparable fresh/young but banal confections -like Gaultier's Le Beau Male, or any cKsummer2000and-whatevs. This under-dog of a fragrance is more than worthy of an adoption.

The (literally) edgy bottle design seals the deal !

Longevity: 6/10 (in base)
Projection (Spring temperatures): 8/10 (in mid)
Art/Creatives: 8/10 (bottle, concept, and scent)
-Bottle carried over from the original.
How: Spring and Summer -but wearable
all seasons, both night or day, casual,
style conscious, dates, parties, flirting.

Quite synthetic and headache inducing. Never hated a fragrance more recently, I simply ran to wash it off. Disgusting one.
