Givenchy has some amazing new launches for the woman, Givenchy Live Irrésistible Blossom Crush, Givenchy Dahlia Divin Eau Initiale which I have the details here. And here is the new launch for men called Gentleman Givenchy Eau de Parfum. In 2017, Givenchy created Gentleman Eau de Toilette, a fragrance brimming with contrasts and paradoxes, boldly blending strength and delicateness. The new launch Givenchy Gentleman Eau de Parfum is a hedonistic essence tailor-made for an enchanting night bird.
‘Don’t Go With The Flow, Be The Flow’
Gentleman Givenchy Eau de Parfum, the fragrance family is Woody Floral Oriental. The notes are:
Top notes: Pepper & Lavender, Middle notes: Orris & Tolu Balm, Base notes: Patchouli & Black Vanilla
‘It’s hard to resist the allure of this Eau de Parfum as mysterious as nightfall. At once in line with Gentleman Eau de Toilette yet entirely other, it offers the same olfactory signature while conveying a completely new personality. After composing the first fragrance, master perfumers Nathalie Lorson and Olivier Cresp imbued this new variation with the extreme sensuality of night. An explosive, almost raw sensuality that bursts forth from the very first spray. A caressing overdose of Iris Pallida. The wild voluptuousness of patchouli essence. The almost dangerous heat of black pepper. The dizzying sweetness of balms and black vanilla…Gentleman Eau de Parfum is deliberately disturbing and definitely addictive.
The Gentleman Givenchy bottle is an emblem of authentic coolness. And because this new Eau de Parfum seems to originate from the night itself, it has donned an opaque, lacquered black evoking total darkness. A single sliver of light, the bottle’s transparent underside makes the fragrance appear as if suspended in glass, reminding us that dawn is never far away.. And since the Eau de Parfum is a rich and eruptive fragrance, its unique black bottle is now immortalized against a backdrop of an explosion of gypsophila rather than a single sprig. British Actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson embodies the new Givenchy Gentleman in a timeless black and white advertising campaign.
The fragrance is very nice masculine fragrance, well-composed, wears close to the skin. To me, it is a straightforward fragrance, I smell all the notes. It does incline more towards unisex, very enjoyable, not overbearing or heavy. It will be great for all seasons, spring, winter, and fall. Gentleman Givenchy Eau de Parfum is available at Hudson’s Bay, Sephora, and Shoppers Drug Mart from May 9th, 2018.
Masks are a game changer for the skin if you are using the right one for your skin’s needs. I am very diligent with my skincare routine in the morning and evening, the reason is the way my skin looked a few years back and the difference I have seen in my skin since then. It was my skin at its worst, my hormones were exploding through my skin after delivering my second child and it continued for over a 4 months period, there was nothing that was working and my face was a mess. I had consulted my doctor, dermatologist, and all the home remedies, the only thing worked was my patience and being consistent with the products I was using targetting the need of my skin at that time. With my experience and testing a whole lot of products, masks have their own importance, they are actually really important part of either weekly or bi-weekly maintenance of your skin targetting the major concerns. I do agree that the products you use every day are the major active workers on the skin, but then to have those extra benefits and outcome from those products, you need to see the broader picture, to maintain what is already there. I can target my congestion by using a serum or moisturizer targetting blemish prone skin but on the other hand, I do need my anti-aging, my dark-spot treatment, my brightening products. So mixing and matching all those to create and maintain that beautiful skin is so important. If you have a story of your skin like mine, let me know and we can talk more about it. In this post, I am going to recommend, yes I am already recommending them even before I have even introduced the products, because they have given me instant as well as long-lasting results since almost over two months I have been using them, bi-weekly. I am talking about Sisley Paris Radiant Glow Express Mask and Sisley Paris Phyto-Blanc Ultra Lightening Mask.
Sisley Paris Radiant Glow Express Mask
Sisley Paris Radiant Glow Express Mask is described as a cleansing mask with red clay which immediately leaves the skin with a radiant glow. The absorbing power of the clay, in combination with plant extracts (carrot, red vine, and rosehip) and essential oils (rosemary and chamomile), helps to eliminate impurities that dull the complexion while deeply cleaning the skin. The texture of the Radiant Glow Express Mask is soft, supple, and non-drying and does not create a pulling sensation on the skin. Within 3 to 5 minutes, skin is left clean and radiant. The key ingredients include Red Vine to tone, Carrot to revitalizes and hydrates, Plant Glycerin to hydrate, Chamomile (essential oil) to soothe, Rosemary (essential oil) to cleanse and stimulate, White Clay to absorb excess sebum, Red Clay to absorb excess sebum, Rosehip to protect from oxidative stress.
For anything with clay, you might think of it to be drying or for oily skin, but this whole mixture of ingredients is nothing like that. I have been using this bi-weekly and I have seen instant results after using this mask, and those results are not for a short period of time or for a day, I fell and notice them for a longer time. My skin is toned, smoothed, and radiant. My skin looks even and fresh. I apply a thick layer of this mask on my face and neck, avoiding the eye area. I let it stay for a little over 5 minutes and then rinse thoroughly with water, and that’s it, I get fresh, radiant, beautiful, even-toned skin in just 5 minutes. It is perfect for even the days you are running late or have a tight schedule, it is recommended to be applied for 3-5 minutes which is like drinking a cup of coffee while the mask in on. The mask is great for the mornings as well as evenings, just before the party or a full day of work, when you are feeling a little dull or you need an instant brightening shot for the skin.
Sisley Paris Phyto-Blanc Ultra Lightening Mask
Sisley Paris Phyto-Blanc Ultra Lightening Mask is enriched with natural plant extracts and essential oils, thoroughly cleanse the skin while visibly lightening the complexion. The synergistic combination of lemon extracts, Scutellaria, and white mulberry, which have lightening properties, evens out the complexion and gives it back its radiance and transparency. The key ingredients include White Mulberry and Scutellaria Extracts to help lighten the complexion, Lemon Extract to unifies the complexion and tone the skin, White Clay (Kaolin) to absorb and remove excess sebum, gently cleanses and dislodges surface impurities, Phytosqualane (derived from Olive trees) to moisturize and soften the skin, Vitamin E to reinforce the skin’s natural defenses, Essential Oils of Lavender and Marjoram to quickly diffuse active ingredients, purifying and balancing action.
I usually use this mask on its own and other times use it for multi-masking, pairing with the Radiant Glow Express Mask. Every time I get breakouts, hormonal or due to stress, they leave dark spots on my face that do take a really long time to fade away. So anything with good ingredients and lightening is all yes for me. Along with lightening my dark spots, I need something that avoids more breakouts too. Just want to mention here that the lightning mask is not just about lightening your skin, but to even out the skin, giving a more smoother, purified and moisturized skin. I keep this mask on face for over 10 minutes. Every time I use this mask, my skin looks so beautiful, radiant, and bright from within. I can notice the difference almost instantly and it stays on for next few days, I do use the products and re-use the mask as in the application instructions to maintain the results. I do notice it works on keeping my skin clear and calm.
Overall, I am very impressed with these two masks and highly recommend you guys check them out. I would never want to be without these, actually, I do want to check more masks from the brand, they work and they work so well. Sisley Paris Phyto-Blanc Ultra Lightening Mask and Sisley Paris Radiant Glow Express Mask are available at Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Nordstrom.

The product is really easy to apply and the mist is very fine and sprays evenly. It is a super lightweight aerosol airbrush body concealer. And, clearly, it works hard and lasts for a long time. It literally looks like your skin is HD, airbrushed without it being too obvious, feels like you are wearing nothing on the skin, it looks so natural and blends in to seamlessly. It does make the skin look fresh and youthful, blurs imperfections and gives a luminous finish. It can be used on the whole body and even on the face to set makeup or to give an even-toned, air-brushed finish. The other great thing about this product is it’s waterproof and it doesn’t transfer, even with the sweat. I am definitely looking forward to the flaunting those beautiful dresses with deep backs and short lengths.
