This review is from: Xeryus Rouge 100 ml Eau de Toilette Spray for Men By Givenchy (Personal Care)
Givenchy has been one of my preferred brands of fragrances for some time. I now have 6x different Givenchy fragrances, from this older one and the venerable 'Pour Homme' with the tall maroon topped bottle, through two of the 'Very Irresistible' flavours, right up to the new 'Gentleman'. They are all very distinctive and carry a level of fragrance that invites comments from friends and coworkers. I am not a fan of their 'Pi' range, but that's the only Givenchy fragrance strand that I don't like.
Xeryus Rouge crossed my nose several months ago when I was on the look out for a new smell, and I would initially have passed it off due to its slightly outdated appearance, not to mention that it is not sold in many places. An initial spray gave me a slightly puzzling reaction, but once it settled it really grew on me, and its Givenchy roots became clearer. I have certainlly never smelt it before and nobody I know has either, so it has that uniqueness that I like. Just because a fragrance is 'older' doesn't make it any less desirable to a modern man.
Shopping around I found it on Amazon for c. £40 for the 100ml which is very excellent for money.
