Gentleman Eau de Parfum Boisée by Givenchy, all the subtlety of a refined man
Gentleman is an iconic fragrance from the Givenchy house , which saw the light of day in 1975 and which immediately showed itself to be very different from the essences of its time. While men bet on lightness and freshness, he dared to release a much more woody and aromatic breath. Its success was instantaneous and it took many years for this composition to be reinvented. This was done in 2017, when its modern reissue appeared. Then, Givenchy continued its journey by developing two derivatives of this composition: Gentleman Eau de Parfum in 2018 and Gentleman Cologne in 2019. This time, the year 2020 is preparing to welcome the new Gentleman, in a Wooded Eau de Parfum.
Givenchy unveils a very contrasting bottle

Then, the elegance of this juice continues with a refined heart of iris. This ingredient, one of the noblest in perfumery, gives Gentleman Eau de Parfum Boisée a more powdery sweetness, counterbalanced by a woody and warm accord of cedar and cocoa. Finally, little by little, the Gentleman of Givenchy asserts his virility a little more at its core. Gentleman Eau de Parfum Boisée ends with a woody breath of sandalwood and patchouli.
