Today I’m talking about a creation from the house of Givenchy that is on its way to becoming a classic. The Eau de Toilette Intense from the Gentleman line perfectly embraces the aura of men and expresses all the subtleties of masculinity. Between power and softness, between assertive presence and discretion, it is the perfect fragrance for all those who, as perfect gentlemen, cultivate both strength and refinement.

Gentleman Givenchy Eau de Toilette Intense review

A prestigious House and a coherent range

Let me start with a short presentation of the House of Givenchy. You can’t grasp the full richness of this Eau de Toilette Intense if you don’t understand where it comes from. Givenchy has been in the perfume and couture business for over 60 years. Catering to both men and women, the House regularly stands out for the boldness and quality of its creations.

The Gentleman line was originally a ready-to-wear line for men. It was quickly enriched by the creation of perfumes. Thus, Hubert de Givenchy was able to express his idea of what a man should be in every aspect: an elegant being located at the crossroads between the chic and the casual. The Eau de Toilette Intense is the heir to this history. It succeeds the Eau de Parfum Boisée released in 2020. It leaves a less gourmand and more lively trail, while remaining true to the distinguished spirit of the range.

The freshness of the floral and the power of the woody for a masculinity full of nuances

The top note, with its essence of basil, exudes a deliciously savory freshness. The basil is balanced by bergamot and cardamom essence.

It is in the heart note that the noble ingredient of the Eau de Toilette Intense is hidden. The concrete of blue iris exhales its bewitching lightness and gives all its character to the composition. In its olfactory music, it is supported by the power of the essence of cypress. The base note, meanwhile, leaves a woody scent composed of essence of cedar wood and coumarin.

I want to highlight the work that has been done on the design of the bottle. As always in the Gentleman range, it reflects the spirit of the fragrance it contains and makes you want to try it. Here, the deep blue gradations express well the elegant yet dense freshness of the experience that awaits us. I should also mention the effort that went into making this eau de toilette a sustainable product. There is 30% less glass in the composition of the bottle. The packaging, for its part, is from sustainably managed forests and recycling. Bravo!
