Givenchy and its perfume for Men: Gentlemen Only

She then highlights the refined and courteous style of certain men through various fragrances. If it began with the creation of Gentleman in 1975, the most famous perfume of this line was born in 2013. You will have recognized it, it is the emblematic Gentlemen Only.

The refined masculinity of Givenchy

If Givenchy wanted to create a perfume in homage to gentlemen from all over the world, it is quite simply because it fits perfectly into its couture style. Thus, it did not take less to sublimate the outfits of this elegant house of creation. Gentlemen Only seems to be the scent of a club bringing together universal masculinity. This informal circle is that of gentlemen. It is not a question of a title which one can acquire but well of a way of being which seems almost innate. The art of being a gentleman is the result of a clever blend of elegance, casualness and confidence. Thus, Gentlemen Only is the scent of an assumed masculinity, courteous but impertinent. We can easily imagine this juice carried by a confident man, quick-witted, endowed with a confident walk and a devastating smile at the corner of her lips. Gentlemen Only symbolizes the taste for beautiful things of this type of man. It is both energizing and refined. In this sense, it would be suitable almost as much to accompany a man on a social evening as to slip into the hollow of his sports bag. In addition, this essence has been embodied by one of the most attractive gentlemen on the planet for several years: Simon Baker, an Australian actor better known as The Mentalist. a social evening only to slip into the hollow of your sports bag.

The fresh, aromatic and woody scent of Gentlemen Only

Gentlemen Only is a fragrance that is signed by perfumers Francis Kurkdjian and Jean Jacques. This is based on a traditional aromatic accord that is easily associated with men’s perfumery. Thus, Gentlemen Only reveals a contrasting freshness halfway between citrus fruits and woody scents. Initially, it gives us a flavor of green mandarin spiced with pink berries and nutmeg. Nevertheless, for more nobility and refinement, a hint of birch leaves has been added to this set. Then, the freshness gradually fades in favor of more depth. Gentlemen Only releases aromas of cedar wood, patchouli and vetiver. This trilogy gives more structure and confidence to the whole. Finally, it all ends with the penetrating heat of the incense. Likewise, this perfume is contained in a sober but chic bottle. This one is displayed as being classic and contemporary. It recalls the flask of English gentlemen and is thus similar to its predecessor launched in 1975. Everything is designed in magnetic bluish tones further enhanced by a brushed metal cap.

If the handsome Gentleman, released in 1974, had known how to mark his era with his scents both very fresh and very patchouli, the Givenchy house wanted to modernize its features. The Gentleman Givenchy remains but in 2013 it will become Gentlemen Only under the olfactory designs of Jean Jacques and Francis Kurkdjian. Racy but aromatic, the two yet very different perfumers have created a Gentlemen Only in the image of this elegant and charming man very Givenchy.

Gentlemen Only or the perfume of a modern dandy signed Francis Kurkdjian and Jean Jacques

Gentlemen Only seems to be particularly linked to its brilliant predecessor Gentleman released in 1974 by the venerable Givenchy perfume house. It is true that the brilliant perfume of the 70s composed by Paul Léger had been able to marvelously outline the scented contours of a man who combined chic and modernity by perfuming himself with fresh and at the same time very virile scents. Clearly, the two perfumers in charge of the creation of Gentlemen Only were inspired by his predecessor to create the same brilliant oppositions.

Moreover Francis Kurkdjian and Jean Jacques would also seem to have been chosen to embody these same meeting of contrasts. Francis Kurkdjian is particularly the official perfumer of fresh and aromatic fragrances, like his first perfume and his greatest success, Le Mâle by Jean-Paul Gauthier. For Jean Jacques, it would seem that it is the other way around! The perfumer is indeed used to strong wakes with an animal character, one of his favorite raw materials is ambroxan, which he judges as “the scent of life and love”. By associating the very different work of these two creators in perfumery, the Givenchy house was assured of obtaining a perfume with strong contrasts and very marked olfactory facets.

Gentlemen Only was therefore created for a man who therefore does not hesitate to show the beauty of his opposites. “A fragrance for gentlemen who aren’t afraid to say who they are. »Says Givenchy for Gentlemen Only.

Givenchy and its neo-aromatic fragrance Gentlemen Only

If the pretty Gentlemen Only and its beautiful ancestor Gentleman were indeed built on the same olfactory oppositions between freshness and virility, their scents are on the other hand rather different and Gentlemen Only will be distinguished in particular by its aromatic casks of an absolute modernity.

Gentlemen Only indeed opens with relatively classic top notes of bergamot and lemon… To better surprise us with the splendor of a few crunchy green birch leaves, pink berries and nutmeg! At the heart, this beautiful energy continues to diffuse thanks to the nervous woody notes of vetiver and cedar. However, patchouli brings us back to the sensual sweetness of the father of Gentlemen Only, Gentleman. Finally, incense and white musks build velvety and carnal depths drawn like a scent of skin.

“ Timelessly elegant, this Eau de Toilette is a neo-aromatic creation whose birch leaf marks a resolutely modern departure. Then a trilogy of precious woods associated with a heated skin accord gives it a disturbing and sulphurous sensuality. “Givenchy for Gentlemen Only.
