    Default Testing Givenchy

    Hi Everyone. I've been testing scents by house and have yet to try anything by Givenchy. The last thread I could find on this topic was from 2010, so I thought that there may be new additions/opinions since then. What are your favorites from this house that you would recommend trying? (Feel free also to look at my wardrobe and make your recommendations based on what I already like or types/styles of scents missing from my growing little collection.) As always, I'm certainly open to unisex scents or "feminine" scents that guys can pull off well. Thanks in advance everyone!

    I'd say the Vetyver, a classical, fresh, smooth vetiver, still good.

    They also used to have a wonderful masculine green floral, Insense, but it has been discontinued.

    Monsieur de Givenchy is my favorite, followed by Givenchy Gentleman. Both smell better in their vintage formulations.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    I like Givenchy Pi, I regard it as my goto Gourmand, it's sweet and smells like sugar. I don't mind the reformulation, but the new one is a bit heavy.
    I am looking for Carded Creed Samples. In particular, Virgin Island Water, Original Santal, and Erolfa. Please message me if you know how to obtain.
