Just for the record :
Givenchy is pronounced with a French “J” sound, a soft “jz” made with the tip of the tongue, almost like saying “shh”.
So it’s “jzhiv-on-shee”,since the French “e” makes a long “o” sound, and the “ch” is a “sh” sound. Givenchy.
The first thing I thought of when I tried this fragrance was that it was a masculine version of Angel by Thierry Mugler. (one of my girlfriend’s favourites)
Chocolate is really dominant in Very Irrestible for Men. It’s like a
gourmand fragrance for men, which is often hard to come by. They do say that bacon is a man’s favourite smell, so why don’t they produce more foody-smelling scents for men?
I actually quite like chocolate. In this fragrance it is rich and
syrupy. Almost dark in a sense.
The hazelnut and mint only add to its deliciousness, however the grapefruit in the opening gives this fragrance a bit of a zesty and fruity feel.
The colour of the bottle tends to confuse me into thinking that I can
smell a greeness in this fragrance, however when I sniff more closely I contradict that thought.
The woodsy drydown with the now softened chocolate note is something to die for. I can safely define this fragrance as being very sexy. The lasting power is good, however it could be better.
But despite all of that, I think that Very Irresistible is a very irrestible buy. An all-time favourite !!!!
