    The old Givenchy Gentleman was an interesting fragrance…old school. In the late 1980’s or early 1990’s…can’t remember exactly when…I stayed at the Carlyle Hotel in New York. In those days they were giving little bottles of Givenchy Gentleman to male guests and little bottles of the ladies’ Givenchy to women. I think Mr. Givenchy owned an apartment in the Carlyle at the time.

      Oh, nice!

      I am assuming they are using “inspired by” in a pretty loose sense here.

    • I was at an antiques shop in Llano, Texas recently that had TONS – like a basketful – of boxed minis of Givenchy Gentleman. I wondered if they were really vintage or something newer. If I’d known for sure, I would have bought one. But, it makes me wonder if the Carlyle sold off their stash of minis!

    I have a fairly recent version of Gentleman, love it, but would also like to test a vintage version.
    I wore Monsieur yesterday, love that one too.

      I’m afraid I don’t know the Givenchy men’s line at all other than Pi.

      • Tommasina says:

        Robin, the original Gentleman (“vintage”, I suppose) is quite something. Not sure whether it’s your sort of something, mind; but definitely worth trying, IMO.

        • Robin says:

          Thanks, although I guess I’m too late! I will see if I can find a sample.

          • Tommasina says:

            I brought some empty vials with me to my mother’s, so can filch some of hers and send it to you on my return to the US.

          • Robin says:

            Ha…that’s a perfumista, always have empty vials handy! Thank you, will owe you one.

  3. The bottle looks classic.

    Love: the bottle and colour.
    Don’t love: Simon Baker.
