Hedione, it comes from the Greek word for pleasure
Givenchy Pour Homme Blue Label used to be my signature scent when it was released more than 10 years ago.
I remember it was a classic woody fragrance, with a tinge of aquatic and floral notes. Originally, I was captured by the astonishing blue bottle, but when I smelled the juice inside I knew I would have liked it.

It opens a little citrus-like but it is more refined, with fresh mildly sour and fruity notes coming through and a hint of spicy ones too. The spicy and sweet bergamot and the authentic bitter grapefruit hit hard in the top notes blend well with the hedione, which adds that particular floral jasmine-magnolia smell.

After the opening it melds pepper and cardamon, giving it a little more depth that otherwise would not be there. Not too much floral, despite the amazing lavender presence, but the wood and pepper definitely give it a dry feel.

Then when it dries down, it has a woody watery vibe going on, which reminds me of Acqua di Gio. I am not saying it is a clone of it, but they belong to the same class and have the same vibe. I do not find this to be spicy at all though, just like Chanel Allure Sport even though they are considered spicy. The resinous olibanum dominates the smoky vetiver, however, mixed with the cedar they all give a profound woody pleasure.

Longevity and projection are way below average. Though, what this fragrance lacks in, it makes up for in scent and quality. Give this fragrance a try if you're into aquatics because it's a bit different than any generic summer fragrance. It is crisp, positive, light, clean, it has some depth, and it is quite uplifting.
To me, the red version is good for more professional atmospheres in cooler weather, rather the blues is good for more sporty casual events in warmer weather.

Recommended for the spring or summer, it’s a daytime scent perfect to wear in the office as well as on leisure or sports time.

I remember it was a classic woody fragrance with a tinge of aquatic, a basic sweet citrusy fruitiness over woods and finishes with vetiver.
