It was in 1951 that Hubert de Givenchy founded his fashion house, setting up his boutique on rue Alfred de Vigny, in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. In 1952, he created “Les Inséparbles”, light skirts matched with puffed-sleeved blouses in raw cotton… The Givenchy style, chic and relaxed, imposed itself throughout the world. The first perfume “L’Interdit” was dedicated to Audrey Hepburn, who contributed to the brand’s success. In 2016, Givenchy presented “Gentleman Only Absolute”, a variation of the very famous “ Gentleman Only ” released 3 years earlier.
Simon Baker’s charisma

Convinced that the fashion for men’s perfumes was developing, he imagined “Gentleman”. Hubert de Givenchy even pushed his daring to offer a woody essence, which was not at all modern for the time. The success was immediate and “Gentleman” became the seducer of the Givenchy brand.
