Best Givenchy Colognes for Men

Givenchy is a French design house with plenty of history behind it and of course a great legacy of producing some fantastic scents for both men and women. For this list, I have selected 6 of what I feel are the top smelling colognes by Givenchy, that they have produced. Of course, I may have left off some people’s favorites but that is to be expected, unless I want to include every one ever made.


Pi By Givenchy For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray 3.3 Ounces
A sweet blend of vanilla and almond with underlying notes of cedar, rosemary, and mandarin to give it a dash of woodsy and citrus flavor. Pi is another very good option for those who enjoy vanilla (along with Le Male and Opium) and is best served for use in winter. Longevity is pretty hit or miss.



Givenchy Play Intense by Givenchy for Men – 3.3 Ounce EDT Spray
Play Intense is a sweet gourmand fragrance with notes of tonka and coffee beans with a bit of spice provided by the pink pepper note. I like this gourmand offering from Givenchy better than Very Irresistible, as it seems darker, and the coffee note isn’t as overwhelming in my opinion. It is a nice departure from the citrusy original Givenchy Play.

Givenchy Gentlemen Only Eau De Toilette Spray for Men, 100ml, 3.3 Ounce
A classic fragrance which dates back to the 1970s, Gentleman, is a spicy/woodsy scent with notes of patchouli and leather as its highlights. It is mature and refined with a citrus note that adds some sweetness to the mix.



Xeryus Rouge for Men by Givenchy 3.3oz 100ml EDT Spray
Xeryus Rouge seems to be a different beast all together. To start with the notes include things like cactus, geranium, and pimento to go along with staples such as cedar and sandalwood. Secondly, it has that exotic and oriental type of quality to it…it’s spicy yet fresh and slightly aquatic. Xeryus Rough is just unique and is the type of special cologne that can set a man apart from the crowd.



Givenchy Pour Homme by Givenchy For Men Eau De Toilette Spray, 3.3 Ounce
Notes include cedar, tangerine, coriander, and grapefruit. A light citrus/woodsy smell that is very clean and crisp.



Givenchy Pour Homme Cologne, Blue Label, 3.4 Ounce
Another citrus and woodsy effort, though, done better than the scent above. This is a scent built for the summertime with notes of grapefruit, bergamot, tangerine, pepper, cedar, and vetiver.
