I'm reviving this thread after a month of dormancy.
I just picked up Givenchy Vetyver at Nordstrom this week for $65 plus tax. I think they
dropped the price recently. I had finally made peace with the $85 price tag and went to
buy this fine scent. When I got to the register, it rang up as $65 so that was a pleasant
surprise. I still think the longevity is lacking, but I'm going to give it a proper full wearing
very soon and I hope it gives at least a half day of noticeable scent. If so, that's good enough.
I have never been disappointed in the scent, just concerned with the longevity.
As I was preparing for the purchase I also applied Monsieur de Givenchy from the newest
bottle. Excellent scent. A lightly floral citrus, very classy. Maybe I'll get it someday. Don't know
if the new bottle's juice matches the old or not. Probably does, but if all reformulations were this
good, we'd have less to discuss on this board.
A good house, willing to innovate and take risks, but still retaining classics for decades.
Two thumbs up.
