Thread: Givenchy Pi

  1. #1

    Default Givenchy Pi

    Givenchy Pi

    It was a blind buy.

    This eau de toilette is so amazing.

    First time I sprayed this on me I said - ???!!!??? what the @$% is that. It was the first time I sprayed something similar, gourmand and sweet. it was smelling a bit like a vanilla milkshake.

    Then 2-3 hours after, my wife told me : "hey honey, what is your perfume ? It's sooooooo good, I just want to bite you, I just want to eat you !"

    This scent has something magic. Everytime I wear it I feel good. Often, before I to go to bed, I sprayed myself with this eau de toilette. I have better dream.

    I don't want to wear this at the office. I don't know why ? But it's the kind of smell I like to wear during week-end with jeans and a white t-shirt.

    I'm my country winter is around the corner, so this fragrance is perfect for colder days.

    Thumbs up Re: Givenchy Pi

    This is one of those scents where a little goes a long way. I used it primarily for evening occasions but found it too sweet and cloying to be worn on a regular basis. All in all this is an excellent fragrance which gives a sexy intelligent vibe that women cant resist.

    If you like Pi, try Jaipur. It's like Pi minus the synthetics and plus some subtle spice. I find it easier to wear, much more attractive, and highly versatile.

    I don't know guys. I may be a bit of a fragrance snob nowadays, but I remember buying bottles of both Pi and Jaipur in my early 30's (I just turned 39) and finding both of them to be too cloying and a bit one-dimensional for my tastes. Then again, I don't like overly sweet fragrances (Hanae Mori comes to mind - I have a terrible memory but I remember it smelling like a bowl of soggy Frosted Flakes with a hint of lemon juice - gross!)

    It starts off very synthetic and plasticy. But after an hour it smells wonderful. Fantastic drydown!

    Pi is a rather nice fragrance, there is something comforting about wearing Pi and a warm woollen sweater.

    I used to wear Pi a lot. But it's been almost 2 years since I've worn it. I dunno what happened, it just got too boring and linear.

    the most linear scent i have, i mean i like it and all, but to me the drydown is almost the same as when you first spray it...(well maybe some woodsy notes here and there but still)

    try out Joop Thrill Man, another nice vanilla based scent (its nothing like the original)

    I love sweet powdery scents but with a little more depth and character. Jaipur Homme rocks big time. Pi on the other hand is one dimensional so it gets boring really quick. But if the wife loves it, I'd say it's gold for you, my friend!
