I'm a huge fan of Givenchy, and I bought this one sight unseen ( and without having smelled it ) based upon reviews here, and upon my obsession with civet based scents. My initial impression was not that good - I was smelling it directly from the sprayer and not on my skin and it absolutely REEKED of patchouli. However, after a light spray on my skin, this magnificent fragrance opened up and fully revealed itself. Warm and rather like honey at times, with the hint of leather and civet coming and going. Thoroughly masculine and quite long lasting but not overbearing. Not too easy to find in my neck of the woods, but I got a great deal on a bottle through a mail order service. This is a new favorite.
