Xeryus (named after the Greek god) in red version became deeper and more sensual. This is the first oriental perfume for men by Givenchy. Top notes are fresh and green thanks to kumquat, cactus and tarragon. The warm perfumed heart is made of cedar needles, red pimento and African pelargonium, which adds a spicy or even hot nuance to the composition. The base is precious and austere: cedar, sandalwood, white musk, grey amber. The perfume was created by Annick Menardo in 1995.
