    Givenchy pour Homme by Givenchy

    I would say Givenchy pour Homme is very close to Aquaman by Rochas. They share notes of grapefruit, coriander and cedarwood; plus the green leafiness of the davana note in Givenchy pour Homme is very similar to the green leafiness of the geranium leaves in Aquaman. The big difference between the two is that the vetiver, additional spices and stronger cedarwood notes in Givenchy PH make it richer and a little darker. Problem is, the warm woods and dark vetiver clash with the lingering fruity, fresh and green top and middle notes, and give it a strange dirty fragrance after about an hour. Givenchy pour Homme is sweet fruit, coriander herb and lush greens with rich spices, cedarwood and vetiver. The first half hour is amazing -- sweet, green and fruity -- but after it dries down for about an hour it smells very strange, like two fragrances layered over each other that just don't mix well. It has very weak base notes as well, which hurt its longevity.
