In the days of Facebook and texting, something just seems to be missing. Gone are the days of handwritten love letters, instead to be replaced by instant, impersonal communication. What we’re truly missing is the days of gentlemen – well groomed, well-mannered men, who loved to shower their loves with affection. Capture the spirit of those long lost days, or if you’re lucky enough to know one of the rare remaining gentlemen, with Givenchy’s new fragrance featuring the perfect Aussie Gentleman Simon Baker as the face of Givenchy’s Gentlemen Only Men’s Fragrance.
The fragrance is the very heart and soul of what being a gentleman means – apologetically masculine, unwavering courtesy and an undeniable elegance, that few can ever hope to capture. The scent is based on the 1970s cult favourite, Givenchy’s Gentleman. Gentlemen Only takes the fragrance and builds upon it, weaving in elements on the modern man – suave, sophisticated and intelligent.
Gentlemen Only opens initially with a spicy freshness, that we adore in men’s fragrances. This comes from the blend of green mandarin, pink peppercorns, birch leaves, and most enchantingly, nutmeg. These meld and blend into the woodier soul of the scent – a trio of sensual woods – cedar, patchouli and vetiver before becoming encompassed by the smoky comfort of incense.
Gentlemen Only is a refreshingly new take on an old classic – just like today’s gentlemen. While many men’s fragrances tend to smell similar, this fragrance takes the tried and true method of men’s scents and adds surprising notes to create something unusual that you, and your man, will love.
