Worthy of the modern gentleman, this Gentleman Givenchy bottle is like a tuxedo worn with no bow tie but plenty of panache. Although the elegance of the 1975 edition is still clearly evident, with clean lines and weighty glass, it's the details that set it apart; a modern interpretation of a classic. The shiny black cap matches the black band encircling a bottle that is steeped in contrast.
The classic touch of lavender is transformed by the noble iris, which makes up the heart of this fragrance signed by perfume masters Nathalie Lorson and Olivier Cresp. The composition is infused with sophisticated powdery notes, particularly when combined with smooth, sweet pear. By contrast, in a nod to the original 1975 release, a patchouli-leather accord structures this woody floral fougère fragrance.
