Fragrance is one of those parts of the grooming regime I thoroughly enjoy, but understand very little about the nuances of the blends. I know if I like a scent or not but can’t always say exactly why, what is the trigger, the pull factor. I vary from spicy and woody to more citrus and summery. Leaning toward the darker, woody and spice scents for evening wear and citrussy based during the day.
So with Givenchy’s Gentlemen Only Intense, it’s the woody notes and touches of amber that appeal. I feel rather grown up wearing it, adopting its fragrance for important meetings and evening events.
Top Notes: Green Mandarin Oil, Pepper Trio, Birch Leaf
Heart Notes: Patchouli Oil Heart, Cedarwood Oil Texas, Leather Accord
Bottom Notes: Tonka Bean, Incense Oil, Skin Accord
It’s elegant and refined, but I wish it maintained its presence just a little longer.
