I rec'd my bottle of Givenchy Gentleman yesterday. . .a blind buy. Excellent choice, I must say and thanks to BN'ers for your sagacious advice on this purchase.
I sprayed it on last night and my memory started swirling. . .this smells just like. . .like. . .ummmmmm. . .what? Something I wore back in grad school in the mid-late 80's. The directory lists tarragon and cinnamon as the top notes, but I've never worn anything in the directory with those notes.
It's driving me crazy! I immediately associate scents with people and places, and I can even tell you which of my college friends Pantene shampoo reminds me of. . .but I can't place this Gentleman smell-a-like.
Russel, no, not quite. . .good guess though. The G.G.'s spiciness is what got my brain spinning. . .I know that GBH has cinnamon in it but for me the flower notes pop out first. P.
Russel, I'm starting to think you are right. . .Yup, I think you are. P.
