- It opens with a strong lemon note that I specificaly identify as persian lime (citrus limettioides), Probably due to other minor notes like tangerine, green lime, orange and basil, it smells like strong plesant lemon tea. - With the hearth notes, the scent became powdery with rose-carnation-cinnamon-sandal flavours but without loosing the heavy lemon tea note.
The transition is subtle and extreamly well composed.
I think it is possibly the worst fragrance I have ever worn, joint 1st place with the Sex Pistols fragrance, which was pure vile and offensive.
I would like to try something more masculine from Guerlain, as this house does seem quite unique to me, so I may try Vetiver at some point. ) It SHOULD be a damned mess, but it's genius instead.
Congratulations to Jean Paul Guerlain for this work of art.
I bought a flask of Habit Rouge EDT about 5 months ago and only now I feel at ease to try a review. Again we may conclude that this is a high quality fragrance.
Someone's already said it, but every time I wear this I get something different: a tangy uplifting bergamot, spine-aligning green vetiver, a cool earthy patch that settles in lightly with the dusty spices and powder, or sticky, phlegmatic labdanum; even a touch of civet in the slick-but-lived-in leather accord. My tastes vary as to genre, but it's a contender for GOAT for me.
I smell all kinds of imaginary accords (fruit loops! The technical construction (projection-longevity-sillage-drydown) is also flawless.
Habit Rouge Eau de Toilette is a metaphor for life itself. Habit Rouge's leather accord truly is a fine, elegant, luxury car leather. It took me a year to finally come around to really appreciate how elegant and refined Habit Rouge is. The fragrance was soft, powdery and indescribably satisfying.
Because in order to experience this fragrance and appreciate its true beauty, your participation is required. • Knowledge that things are not always what they seem at first. • Patience to enjoy the stages and art of the perfumer’s craft. I said that if I was making love to a beautiful woman (I hadn't yet) and kissed her on her chest, exactly between her breasts, THAT would be the smell that I would expect to smell. After all these years I've been replenishing my perfume collection, after a tragic loss of 100, and recently I noticed Jasmine on Ebay and so, I had to buy some just to smell that smell again; it's been nearly 40 years.
Due to its well tamed sweetness, I imagine that this fragrance may as well be considered as unisex, I can picture this magificent powdry sweet Vanilla-Leather dry down on a woman's skin, My rates for Habit Rouge EDT: Scent: 10.0 (my judgement) Longevity: 8.5 (above average for the existing notesm but not beasty) Sillage: 8.0 (same as longevity) Uniqueness: 10.0 (unique, considering the existing fragrances that I am aware of) Wearability: 10.0 (4 seasons, day or night) Versatility: 9.5 (yes to clubbing, socializing, events, restaurants... My friend, Jeff, always had incense burning in his place, a must back then, and one day he handed me the incense tray that he burned those little cone-shaped incense nuggets on and told me to smell it.
