Pros: Timeless. Fresh enough for warmer weather, sophisticated enough for evening.
Cons: "Timeless" may also spell "outdated" to some.
Reminds me of: Roger Gallet Extra Vielle.
Longevity: The current EDT lasts very well on me. This is no tame fragrance.
Sillage: Just right.
Where can I buy it? $21.38 for a 3.4 oz edt spray tester at Scentiments.com
Bottleworthy? Everyone's gotta try this at least once...and for that price, why not go whole hog?
The Bottom Line: One of Guerlain's more recent masterpeices, Habit Rouge is unquestionably one of the finest examples of 20th century men's perfumery. But does it smell good? Well yes; an unusual blend of vanilla and citrus with powdery leather basenotes, Habit Rouge always reminds me of a fine, full-bodied gin. Picture a sleek 1960's mahogany and chrome bar. Perched atop is a heavy crystal glass filled with an aromatic clear liquid and ice. The air is perfumed with Habit Rouge as a young Sinatra croons in the background...
