    Givenchy Play Intense by Givenchy

    I gave this recent release from Givenchy a run today. Andrewthecologneguy had mentioned a 'tar note' which intrigued me greatly but my nose fails to detect any. Neither is 'tar' listed as a note. It is nevertheless pleasant in its sweet powdery yet airy essence; I find its approach is closer to Salvador Dali's Black Sun than it is to Armani's edgier rendition with Code. But for the guys at Givenchy to jump on the trend bandwagon, they must be getting pretty desperate. Ultimately I find PLAY INTENSE to be too much of a Code rip off that not even Justin Timberlake can bring 'sexy' back.
