Monsieur Givenchy Cologne by Givenchy, Offering a lively, summer citrus scent for men, Monsieur Givenchy was launched in 1959. This fragrance has a long-lasting longevity and an enormous sillage. Starting at the top of the scent, you will experience notes including carnation, lemon, pepper, and warm cinnamon. The middle notes expand the fragrance with a touch of lemon verbena mixed with lavender. Rounding out the note and completing the fragrance are base notes of oakmoss, musk, and sandalwood.
