About Gentleman Eau de Parfum

The company says:

Peppery effervescence riffs with the gentle and aromatic lavender. Contrasting notes built upon a beating floral heart. Warmed up with Tolu balm, the Iris heart plays a solo, full of strength and delicacy played out with a masculine pitch. The base echoes with woody patchouli and the sensuality of black vanilla. Oriental and addictive. A rhythmic scent to accompany you through the night.

Reviews of Gentleman Eau de Parfum

I love this scent. Since Lolita Lempicka binned their Au Masculine and Guerlain did the same to LIDGE, I had been left without a signature scent until the coming of the Gentleman Givenchy Eau De Parfum.

Late one Saturday afternoon while trying out the new range of Guerlain and Givenchy ( I was working through the alphabet!! ), I sprayed this onto my wrist and over an hour later couldn't stop pressing nosing my skin as the scent kept drawing my nose back to my wrist all through the evening.

The dominant note is the powdery iris which I simply love. This is a delicious and exciting scent with warm and sweet notes of spice and vanilla. Projection is good and lasts around 7 to 8 hours, staying on the skin for up to 10/12 hours.

The bottle is jet black with a clear lower section and base which keeps it fashionable while extending life to the original-style Givenchy bottle. I purchased the 100ml bottle as part of a gift set which came with a very handy 15ml travel spray. If you love gourmand fragrances with that lovely floral sweetness and more, go for this and I'm sure that like me, you will not be disappointed.

I loved the vanilla on paper. I loved the pine feeling on my skin. While I was looking at the flankers, the male S.A. said: what does Monsieur like? “It’s for me.” “It’s a male fragrance, madam.” “I’ve not seen its penis yet, sir.”
I’m currently loving the spices as well. I don’t know why I got feelings of l’Eau des Baux. Well, I kind of know, the vanilla, the spices... but it’s very different anyway.

Gentleman EdP comes off to me like the bastard child of iris-showcase Dior Homme (2005), and some old-school '70s powerhouse thanks to its sharp patchouli and lavender.

It's interesting when you smell it evolve. It has a yin-yang quality as the iris has that smooth, almost feminine, earthy floral, and the patchouli is...well, patchouli. Lorson and Cresp are certainly giving a hat tip to the more rambunctious scents of the '70s and '80s, while maintaining the more restrained and safer tendencies of the modern fragrance world. It lists "floral notes" in the profile, and I'm not sure that they work too well in this. The black pepper gives this a bit of a spicy, oriental feel, but something in the "floral notes" -- it almost reminds me of carnation -- is not jiving with the whole theme for me.

It's an interesting fragrance for sure, but one that seems confused to me, and lacking a cogent theme. This is best used on a cold, romantic evening, as there is nothing about this fragrance that seems suitable for the office, casual wear, or warm weather. I'm sure that Gentleman EdP has its fans, but this is not my cup of tea by a longshot. I'm not a fan.

I'm being generous with my neutral rating for this, in my opinion.

I agree with Bigsly's review, this one is super simple, and also, mostly inoffensive. I like to think of it as a modern man's Armani Code. With vanilla and iris being the key notes here, it's in the style of Dior Homme Intense, but lacks the depth and dynamic. DHI is hard to pick the right time to wear, this one is a much easier grab. Worth it, if you can find it for a good price. Performance and quality both surpassed my expectations.

It's funny how tastes can change. This was one of the first few scents I sampled after getting back into fragrances. Originally I hated it, something about the iris and tolu balsam didn't sit well with me, and gave me the impression of mothballs. Now I love it. I get no chemical association anymore and those two are now among my favorite notes. There's quite a lot of similarity between this and Dior's Homme Parfum. They have their unique facets; I think this is darker whereas DH is more syrupy (neither is cloying though). But, owning a bottle of the Dior, I don't see myself needing this. Worth trying each if you're interested in the world of iris.

This is perhaps the easiest fragrance to understand! If you enjoy Dior Homme Intense type scents but want one that is more casual, but not juvenile, this is one to consider. Longevity and projection are very good if not excellent and it smells about as natural as one can expect from non-exclusive designers these days. For me, DHI was too formal, so this one is just right, in terms of my preferences.
