Summary: This is meant to be sprayed more than the usual. I gave it 8 sprays last night and could still smell it as I woke up today. I have worn it plenty of times but never payed too much attention to the performance. I must say that it is great, at least 6 hours If sprayed liberally. A great sweet and woody coffee frag. A bit linear but I like it very much.
Summary: At first smell, this might be almost the same as Rochas Man; the difference between these scents is that Rochas Man is more floral, animalic, and kind of formal, while Givenchy Play Intense is woodier, sweeter, and more casual. I also agree that GPI has more chocolate than it has coffee, which I can barely perceive. Both are awesome and good-for-dating fragrances!
Summary: I little background...I'm a 26 year old professional so subtleness and professionalism yet power is the key. This has it all. It is my special event, suit & tie cologne. Love it. I own the 50 ml bottle and its magnificent.
Summary: This is a perfume you can never go wrong with! To me, this is one of the most pleasant and enjoyable fragrances I've owned; I love the mix of coffee, vetiver (which gives it an interesting woody vibe), citrus, and Tonka. It can be used at any ocassion, in different kinds of weather. Projection isn't great, but longevity is good (about 7-8 hours), and drydown is so delicious - it reminds me of Fahrenheit Absolute a little bit, which is one of the EDTs I've been longing...
Summary: Many people compare this to Rochas man. Although they do share the same vibe, the difference are ROCHAS MAN: Bright/ Burnt Sugary Cappucino ( Cappucino, not coffe. cappucino is creamy) GIVENCHY PLAY INTENSE: Dark/ Black dark chocolate ( not dairy chocolate ) with Coffe flavour. Longevity, Projection, and Sillage are spotty. Sometimes it lasts for 5-6 hours, other times it fades after 90 mins and return back to linger here snd there, also sometimes it never return back.
Summary: Perhaps I need more time to come to appreciate this one, but at the moment I am not overly impressed by it. People mention a coffee note- perhaps a Starbucks vanilla chai late? Certainly not a bold coffee bean. The Tonka is abundant, however. Patchouli and Vetiver as well. I don't hate it; however, it has the same problem for me as Jean Paul Gauthier Le Male. Overly cloying and sweet, too adolescent smelling. I thought this was a unisex fragrance when I smelled it.
