The Perfume Notes Are:

Headed by the essence of sage, this scent opens with fresh, tenacious notes, which create a soft and mildly peppery aroma, adding depth to the composition. This fragrance is naturalistic and earthy and smells like a humid forest undergrowth. Paired with the essence of cardamom, a resinous, spicy scent is captured. Minty, exotic and long-lasting, it was particularly this note that I could smell on my skin after a few hours.

The heart notes are driven by three blends of vetiver, derived from Haiti, Uruguay and Madagascar, adding to the perfume’s warm, deep and elegant influences. It is both smoky and salty, and the vetiver provides a slight mineral-like grounding scent.

Cedarwood and sandalwood base notes complement vetiver well, producing a slightly sweet and musky scent. The overall effect is a relaxing scent that deeply grounds and calms the wearer. This solid and dependable fragrance made me feel anchored and steady.

What’s The Story Behind This Scent?

Givenchy aims to present a new vision of ‘The Gentleman’ to reflect changing social times. Benjamin Clementine is the face of Givenchy Gentleman Society; his individualism and elegance effortlessly inspire. Chosen because of his talent and how he passionately shapes culture by being open, kind and generous, this multi-instrumentalist has won the Mercury Prize. He continues to influence society with his artistic talents. This perfume is about embodying these values and characteristics to form your own ‘gentleman’ status.

What’s The Longevity Like?
