    Default Vintage givenchy gentlemen up for grabs!

    I blind bought a vintage obelisk bottle Givenchy Gentlemen with the wrap around silver label this week. from the notes / reviews, it seemed as though it should have been love. Unfortunately, it does not wear well on my skin and I definitely have pre existing associations with it as a fragrance that I did not enjoy growing up.
    I know that it is a great fragrance, but just not for me.

    This is the 3.4 oz bottle, has about 45% remaining.

    First response from existing U.S. based BNer gets it...free!

    Perhaps this will allow me to start off the year with good fragrance karma...

    I am not certain. I had purchased it this way from a trusted online ebay dealer.
    I have every confidence that this is genuine as it was one of two signature scents that my stepfather wore in the 70's & 80's.
    Sadly, not the one that I loved.

    I was not aware that there was a sticky for this. I honestly hadn't checked. I've had a good run of inexpensive blind buys recently, but this one just didn't work out for me. I know that people love Gentleman, so I had thought this a better idea than having it sit in a box with all of the other unwanted designer fragrances that I will never sell.

    A strange (yet obvious) follow up to this thread-

    I was in the check out line at the grocery today and the fellow ahead of me smelled familiar and just... great. I began to search through the rolodex in my mind to figure out what it was that he was wearing while thinking to myself, man, I want to smell like that! As I got closer I realized that it was (of course!) Givenchy Gentleman. I am not certain if it was the vintage or modern iteration, but it has left me feeling as though I may not be done with this one yet. Perhaps I get lucky and the recent formulation works better for my chemistry.

    Well, unfortunately, the bottle of Gentleman came back today (1 month later) undeliverable from Canada.
    I had intended well...drag.
    The Santal Noble never arrived from Canada. I hope that it was returned to badarun.
    I suppose that this means that I am supposed to spend more time with the Gentleman...

    TJ Maxx has this for sale for $35. I have been thinking about buying it. Can you give us a review of how it smells to your nose?
