Refined masculine cologne
By Subtle Spring
I purchased this scent for my father. My brother, who rarely wears cologne, loved it. I then purchased some for my him.
Pi For Men by Givenchy is a long-lasting, subtle scent with incredible complexity. Such a nice change from many of the “in-your-face” men’s colognes. And this is not to say that Pi is not noticeable; it just is refined. Although I am not a man, I spritzed some on my wrist to test it and kept smelling it, happily, all day. It is the scent that I would want on the man that I hug a lot. Having a 15 year old son who has tried countless colognes, and a father who has tried even more, I have to say that Pi is, hands down in my opinion, the best scent for men that I have ever encountered.

While in total agreement with all the positive reviews of PI COLOGNE, and a long time user of PI COLOGNE, let me offer one word of warning to those who purchase the product online.
There are many, many online sources for buying fragrances. In a few instances, we have found the lowest prices to be found at web sites that have sold us out of date merchandise. Both my wife and I have been disappointed to make a fragance purchase online, but when used, did not have long lasting impact hoped for when bought.
Call the web site directly, and ask when the product was produced, when it arrived at their warehouse, and how long it has been in their inventory. When we did this, we got FRESH PRODUCT. When PI COLOGNE is fresh, the fragrance lasts all day long with a subtle and pleasing aroma. A great product……….we agree with the review that called PI one of the five greatest of all time.

The only cologne I buy
Funny story, I was at a local store in the mall shopping one day, about 8 years ago. I had bought my usual Obsession. I work in and with construction workers all day, so a light spray is all I ever use. The young woman at the cologne counter asked me if I had tried Givenchy PI. I’m not trying to be some highly cultured guy here, “Tried it? I can’t even say that”. She handed me a whole bag of the samples of Givenchy PI and told me to try it out since it reminded some of a lighter, more masculine Obsession.
I thought nothing of it, but as soon as I tried it, I loved it. My wife at the time, I was only about 24, she hated it! Oh, it wasn’t because she really hated it, it was because she was a jealous type.
Yeah, so fast forward, divorce, and I swear to you all, she stole one of my shirts and sprayed Givenchy PI all over it! Over the next few years, we went back to being at least friends and about once a week she would stop by and ask me to spray the shirt.
Sure that doesn’t say much for me, she let me go, but not the smell. Needless to say, I moved on, got married to a different lady, and my ex no longer comes by to get me to spray the shirt for her. I could make this a review riddle and ask if you know why, but since I am really trying to tell how great this cologne is, I will tie up the loose strings.
I married the woman from the cologne counter that gave me the Givenchy samples, and my ex, being a friend by then, came to our wedding, where my new wife, the cologne saleswoman, gave her a box of Givenchy samples so she would stop coming by to have me spray the shirt! Oh and yeah, this stuff is much better fresh. My ex says the samples don’t smell near as good as the bottle I have. Of course, the samples were old and that is how my current wife was able to give her a whole box of the samples.
Moral of the story, this cologne is loved by women. To this day, I am asked at grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, what I am wearing by women and men always ask, “Hey man, come here, what kind of cologne is that? Smells good” you know, all secretive like, like they don’t want any other men hearing me tell them the name of it.
The other moral is current wife still will spite ex-wife, even if it just outdated Givenchy samples!
One of my yearly presents from my wife during the holidays usually and one that I would recommend to all men for themselves or to women to buy for their man. In ending, fellas, if you ever thought cologne was too feminine or too anything, don’t do it with this one. Try it out, you’ll mostly likely love it and the responses you get from it.
