Xeryus Cologne by Givenchy, Xeryus is a refreshing yet powerful cologne for the sophisticated man. This layered, modern fragrance, released in 1986, leaves you feeling clear-eyed and energized all day long. The top notes start with the zesty aromas of citrus bergamot, lemon, and mandarin orange. Their sweetness is softened by green notes and a crisp, cooling sprig of lavender. Floral notes of nutmeg flower, rose, violet, jasmine, lily of the valley, and ylang-ylang flow seamlessly into the middle. Cyclamen, geranium, juniper berries, and carnation blend together in a powdery bouquet. Cypress, petitgrain, tarragon, cinnamon, coriander, and sandalwood imbue a richness into the composition. At the finish are the masculine scents of amber, musk, leather, oak moss, vetiver, balsam fir, and cedar. A dash of incense leaves a smoky trail. Wear this complex fragrance for year-round enjoyment.
