I loved it on the card and on my skin at first but it very quickly made me feel nauseous
Hope it doesnt have that effect on you!
Thread: A Big +1 For Givenchy PI - - WOW
Well I went to a local store today and was sniffing around and decided to spray and seen what I considered an odd looking bottle. Picked it up and it was Givenchy PI, sprayed some on a test card waited a minute or so and WOW. This stuff smells incredible, so smooth. I will definitaly be picking up a bottle of this for Fall and Winter use!
Any other PI fans out there? I felt Pi deserves so much praise it was worth starting a thread for, great juice!
Pi is a most excellent scent, I love it. Excellent longevity and sillage. I would make love to it if I could.
I have both EdT and EdP. It`s a great scent that I do not wear often, though.
Incredible lasting power and sillage, and definitely one of the most bold, provocative and impressive scents in the history of (men`s) perfumeria. It doesn`t leave anyone cold - let`s put it that way.
I just recently (since it's become warmer) discovered Pi & I'm stashing this one away for winter. I LOVE it, but I can only wear half sprays on each wrist & sides of my neck. This is about HALF the amount I wear of any other scent. It can be very headache inducing to both yourself as the wearer, and most likely anyone around you, lol. But worn sparingly, it's a very intoxicating and inviting fragrance, IMO.

Once i've had the chance to try this almost-impossible-to-find version from a really generous basenoter. I remember the EDP really just intensified the woody notes, it was a bit richer and probably a bit less powdery and cloying as the EDT, i think it enhances the original in much of the same way as HM EDP did to its EDT, worth checking out.

2. Roja Dove Sultanate of Oman
3. MFK Baccarat Rouge 540
4. SHL 777 Black Gemstone
5. Rasasi Tobacco Blaze
I bought my small (30ml) bottle from the local store.Originally Posted by HackerX
HackerX was very much right there, although I can`t do comparison between HM scents...
While EdT is VERY outward, shiny and powdery, EdP is more refined, woody and dense. They both last a same amount of time, no difference there.
Overall, I think EdP is much more silent scent in this case, which is kind of interesting.
Hmm, I had no idea there was an EDP-version.
You should certainly try the Fraîche-edition: I find the original just a bit too sweet but the added orange(zeste)-note in this fresher version really balances it!
I don't really get the appeal of Pi. It isn't bad, I just feel like lots of other gourmands out there are a whole lot better.
I have the EDP version and now, as of yesterday, the EDT version also.
The difference follows the usual lines - the EDP goes to the mid- and base notes quicker and has a more linear drydown, whilst staying closer to the skin. Because the EDT lasts so long anyway, I'm not sure there's any difference between the two in that respect.
This is a superb fragrance in either form, but simply must not be overapplied, or it becomes sickly - a bit like one spoonful of pudding too many!
I bought two 30ml bottles of the EdP version a few months ago (for a grand total of £18 on eBay!). Personally, I prefer this to the EdT - it's richer, more sensual and less powdery. Also, I previously compared the two versions on my wrists, and noticed that the EdT smelt too synthetic and 'cheap' on drydown. The EdP, on the other hand, just kept getting better...
I think that the original and the fraiche are excellent scents. But I only could apply very little since they are very powerful.
The bottle is probably my favorite of all time.
I saw the EDP version in Douglas Cosmetics right after it came out but I never bought it. The SA told me it was more woody and less sweet.
