Reviews of Givenchy Gentleman (new)

Don't be fooled. This is nothing remotely comparable to the original Gentleman. This is dank, horrid iris note over synthetic woody calone. Unfortunate performance.

Feeling guilty that
Givenchy Gentleperson
Somehow pleases me,

This fragrance that would
Turn Papa in for toxic

And fire him from his
Precarious retirement
For incorrect thoughts

Like mocking cat pics
Offered as reparations
For dad's civet farms

Or wondering if
Junior has any right to
Turn in Dad's guy patch

For the reward of
Baby's breath and girlfriend's smile
Pears on the table

And other sweeter
Vanities allowed by law
Or righteous fashion.

So should old Habits
Not die soon or hard enough
That new ones flourish

Be that as it may
Under their own tyrannies
Then let them at least

Ride off into some
Gentleman's Collection of
Older Gentlemen.

Where old lady scents
Fill the air most youthfully
In relative time

And youth can forget
History's finest fragrance,
So thusly condemned

Repeat its same Joy,
Discovering new nothings
Under Beauty's sun.

I don't know the original, so I have no basis of comparison.
I don't like this. Brash, too sweet, dense. Initially it smells mostly of wet cardboard (a note I often encounter in inferior modern men's scents). Some spices emerge, although there are none listed in the fragrance notes. No distinguished leather that I can detect, and a very irritating patchouli.

Why do these new perfumers come in and think they can change a classic into something of their own preference. Leave a good thing alone! Givenchy Gentleman is a true classic. If they want to change the formula, then give it a completely different name. The strong and long-lasting leather and patchouli of the original is what those who have worn this for decades LOVE. Please leave the formulation alone, or else market the new creation under a different name. Does Givenchy plan on discontinuing the original Gentleman? If so, I'm stocking up!

Stardate 20171220:

This is irisy woody meh. Nothing to see here. And yes they should have used a different name.
Original Givenchy Gentleman was for real Gentlemen.
This new one is for.., well no one really.

And L'Homme Blanc Individuel explains it the best -

"I can't believe they wasted the Gentleman name on this. I guess Givenchy Irrelevant Nondescript Gentle Person was too long of a name. This stuff is filler. The bottle sure is handsome though, but the juice isn't even as compelling as a good yawn."
