The house Givenchy had launched a modern version of the original and iconic 70s fragrance Gentlemen (1974) entitled Gentlemen Only (2013). Gentlemen Only is an elegant woody fragrance that smells like woods of cedar, vetiver and patchouli. With the beginning of 2014, its enhanced version enters the market with an added touch of smooth leather. Gentlemen Only Intense, though, never loses its refinement and elegance.

Gentlemen Only Intense, announced as both bold and subtle, retains the signature woody character reinforced with some spices, leather and an amber trail. This fragrance strives to emphasize the sensuality and sexiness of a man without losing the subtlety. The composition opens with green mandarin oil, black pepper and birch leaf. Its magnetic heart includes notes of patchouli, Texas cedar and leather, placed on the sensual base of tonka bean, amber and incense.

Top notes: green mandarin, pepper, birch leaf
Heart: patchouli, cedar, leather
Base: tonka bean, incense, amber


To represent the 21st century dandy is Australian actor Simon Baker, known for his role in the crime TV series The Mentalist.

The design of the bottle and the box becomes darker with shades of black and gray. The fragrance is available as 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette.

It will rather have more in common with Gentlemen Only than with Gentleman. I only hope it won't be too sweet with tonka added... Givenchy has enough amount of gourmands

Givenchy Gentleman by Givenchy is a Woody fragrance for men. Givenchy Gentleman was launched in 1974. The nose behind this fragrance is Paul Leger. Top notes are honey, cinnamon, bergamot, rose, lemon and tarragon; middle notes are patchouli, orris root, jasmine and cedar; base notes are leather, amber, patchouli, musk, oakmoss, vanilla, vetiver and civet.

No civet in this version? I think will not be strongest, long way and rich

How do you know it'll be after 4-6 months? This one seems to be semi-sweet so there's no sense for such release in the summer.

Besides, it's written:

"With the beginning of 2014, its enhanced version enters the market"

Now it's doesn't even worth it to buy a new release because they will release an intense version after 4-6 months. Like, they do weak fragrances for sure as a first release. Shame.

Looking at the notes - they seem to be a little familiar to me. I thought a moment and... Van Cleef&Arpels Midnight in Paris. There's no tea in here though but... Citrus, leather, tonka bean and incense - that's what they have in common.

Let's hope this one will smell different. I mean like nothing else :)

Anyone knows if it will still have the magnetic cap?

From the looks of the notes, I wouldn't be surprised if this new twist on one of the 70's most iconic fragrances is a winner...the notes listed here for this new version definitely excite my imagination and I only hope that the fragrance lives up to what my imagination is already conjuring up...I'm actually really looking forward to giving Givenchy Gentleman Only Intense a good ol' sensory-whirl.

Gentlemen Only isn't as bad... It's not a typical fresh fragrance nor aquatic so... I like it and will buy it.

About Intense version - well, it doesn't sound good to me.

Im actually looking forward to this one. Gentlemen only didnt strike a strong enough cord with me, but adding leather and tonka? I might just like it!

Actually I don't know what to think about releasing it so soon by Givenchy. And if Gentlemen Only really needs a flanker.... As I said, flanker of the flanker. Interesting. I'll surely test it.

Gentleman was about patchouli, rose and honey, Gentlemen Only was about incense, vetiver and patchouli with a little synthetic (metallic) mandarin orange opening. This one seems to be semi-sweet leathery and smoky fragrance.

I'll just have to test it out and see how things are going...

By the way, is it also made by Francis Kurkdjian and Jean Jacques? Anyone knows?
