    Default I'm mad at you, Monsieur Givenchy!

    The first smell is heavenly floral.

    I give it a second trial, ouuuch, it gives me headache and wrinkle. Oh what is this cheap thing on earth?!!

    Then a third chance, and, oh, there's so many notes going on in there.....
    It is not for the common nose, it is classic of classics!

    A parfum so well composed that it depends on how the wearer handles it.
    It can be heaven or hell....
    So much wonders inside this monster monsieur.

    Now I understand why things have its status.

    Yes Monsieur De Givenchy is very subtle, uncommon and full of wonders.

    It's not uncommon to have to "fight through" an unpleasant note to get to a great drydown, in my experience, and over time you may come to like it !

    Wish I could enjoy it more as well. Bought it from a Long Island shopping mall kiosk, and maybe it was an old bottle sitting in the heat, because all I get out of it is a pleasant, sharp old school lemony cologne scent.....for about ninety minutes, maybe. Then, nothing.

    A very nice scent IMO and glad I own it.

    Your bottle is legit. I find most of the Givenchy "classics" line perform the same way. JUNK.

    Yeah they have gutted Monsieur Givenchy.

    Still wearable though. 15-25 sprays will give you decent longevity. It's basically body spray concentration (lower than EdC).

    I haven't tried the recent formulations. My comments referred to the vintage stuff which is possibly my favourite scent.

    It's been reformulated, like my beloved Gentleman which now smells like an ashtray to me.

    Never blind buy a Givenchy.
