Sophisticated and versatile
And suddenly Guerlain Homme is trending again! That's great to see, because this is a true gem. I gladly add my two cents.

Guerlain Homme has a sharp and distinctive citrus-mint opening. Often rum is mentioned as well - hence the mojito reference - but I don't perceive any. Calling this a 'mojito scent' wouldn't do justice to the sophisticated development that takes place beyond the opening notes. The sharp citrus fades out, but the mint persistently gives off a crisp green freshness.

In the base, there is patchouli and vetiver mainly. I guess the patchouli here is a bit of a one-dimensional dusty note without the usual complexity and the vetiver seems to be from the 'common Guerlain masculines' bottle. Nevertheless this dusty patchouli and woody vetiver feel comfortable, gentlemanly and not at all low-grade. The whole is elevated by subtle peppery and floral elements. This composition delivers a smart and understated elegance of well above its price tag.

Performance-wise.. Sure, at the local tonka-blasting competition, also known as ‘the club’, this isn’t a winner. And in terms of number of people around you getting nauseous or the number of 'chicks magnetized' - whatever that means - , this won’t score very high. Of course, all that is irrelevant when you intend to complement your attire with a touch of brilliance and finesse. What matters is how it does so in different circumstances - heat, stress, rain - and in that respect it does an excellent job. Longevity? Nearly a full workday of soft radiance, check!

This is - by far - my favorite office scent. Highly recommended for anyone who is looking for a stylish mature everyday scent at an insanely affordable price level.

Dont waste your money
Can someone please tell me why perfume companies insist on saying their product is an eau de parfum concentration when the darn thing barely lasts 2hrs? I mean gimme a break Guerlain! You are not the only ones doing it though (I'm speaking to YOU Issey Miyake!). Anyway I've never worn anything so boring and uninteresting in my life. I'm not gonna get into specifics
because I'm so turned off by the stuff i have a good mind to ask for my money back. I bought the original edt a few yrs back and i actually get better results from that one. When i saw this in an edp version for a good price i jumped on it, thinking it would be a stronger version. I was wrong. PERFUME HOUSES PLEASE STOP LABELING YOUR CRAP EAU DE PARFUM WHEN IT CLEARLY IS NOT.

The Little Prince
[Short review]
In the kingdom of Guerlain, everyone has a remarkable nose. If you happen to go there, you will meet several kings, queens, nobles, artists, a lot of princesses, but only one prince. A long time ago, in this far far away land, the magician Thierry Wasser was asked by the supreme king to create a very elegant and handsome prince who would make all Guerlainians very proud. He should be an example for all royal manly noses, and also whom all the ladies noses would love to smell.
The great wizard began his work by researching the meaning of the king's strange request. He understood that "elegant" refers to someone who displays "elegance". "Elegance" stands for refinement, delicacy, subtlety, finesse.... in short, for the demonstration of good taste.
Of course, this is just a not very plausible story about the appearance of Guerlain Homme in 2008 and its current minor reformulation that took place in 2016. I could have simply started this short review with the words:
- Guerlain Homme Eau de Parfum stands for refinement, delicacy, subtlety, finesse, and is a way to prove the perfume's user good taste.

No matter how often and how intensely you inhale it, Guerlain Homme will always be a fragrance that will never tire you. It's citrusy, lightly boozy, a little powdery, a bit woody and, above all, timeless. It's light enough to be casual and strong enough to perform with formal attire. It never becomes overbearing, no matter how heavy is your finger in the trigger. I find this perfume extremely calming and a fantastic versatile scent for all men.
It opens fresh and is only slightly alcoholic. The initial mojito accord with lime, mint and rum notes, embraces the floral heart notes quite gracefully. The base notes are all about top-notch vetiver with hints of cedar and patchouli.
Longevity is average and sillage is moderate at best. The seemingly weak performance can also be explained by the subtlety of the perfume. Nevertheless, the scent stays close to the skin for most of the fragrance lifespan.

Being elegant simply means having good taste and behaving and acting with style and grace. Elegance covers all the reasons that objectively conflict with the perception of pleasure you create around you. And this perfume is damn stylish, graceful and elegant. On top of it, it's quite inexpensive for the quality juice you get.

Versatile and Sophisticated
On paper, there's a very clear progression through the "mojito" top notes down through the mid and base but everything wonderfully blends together at once on skin. Very green and aromatic, slightly woody with a gentle hint of the top notes overlaying the baser notes. Projection stays close to skin but gives off a very pleasant, mature aura. Versatile, sophisticated, masculine fragrance that punches far above its weight.

Solid all-rounder with minor flaws
Cocktails are good sources of inspiration for the creation of fragrances, because they live just like perfumes from the combination of different flavors that are simply intended to serve the pure pleasure. The Mojito is without question one of the most popular, along with well-known variations such as Gin & Tonic, Caipirinha, Piña Colada or Cuba Libre, and in Guerlain Homme it was combined with classic masculine, woody notes. But even though I can definitely recognize the individual components, I must say that I would have expected a little more freshness.

In the top note lime is definitely present, but rather fleeting on my skin and it lacks the effervescence that it usually has. Instead, the peppermint comes pleasantly herbaceous and does not, as in some perfumes, reminds of chewing gum or toothpaste. The only thing missing for the mojito accord is rum and cane sugar - these two facets can also be found, although the sweetness is fortunately moderate. Due to the alcoholic note and the masculine base, Guerlain Homme also has something familiar, aftershave-like. Rather woody and only minimally earthy vetiver plays a larger role here in the further course and receives a little support from the cedar, which in my opinion, however, is not so prominent.

What bothers me from the beginning is a certain combination of subtly powdery and soapy notes, which for me almost always seems very old-fashioned. The fragrance smells therefore not really bad and younger people could also stand Guerlain Homme - but I see it more on mature men from 40, because it is just more classic than modern. The durability I find here surprisingly good, with a reasonable sillage for an all-rounder.

A fragrance that arrives
First of all, I love the fragrances of Guerlain.
Sometimes it takes a little time to be able to open myself to them, but they always convince.
All Guerlain fragrances have a certain "je ne sais pas quoi..." for me, which distinguishes the fragrances from others (even my much appreciated Dior and Chanel fragrances).
Guerlain Homme appears for me at the beginning something old-fashioned and refreshing at the start (mint), like an aged men's after shave.
But the fragrance then develops very nicely, in the direction of woody-patchoulig-zedern, and really with an impressive and also quite persistent aura.
I like to wear in during the day and with several sprays.
Completely amazed I was that several female colleagues have explicitly addressed me on this fragrance.
Since I seem to smell basically probably always good (in the office it is then said, he "sniffs" again good), it has me then but a little perplexed.
Both some very young colleagues (19-23) as well as some colleagues in my age (48-52) have asked me about the fragrance and wanted to know which it was.

Guerlain, well done :-)
The flacons could be designed a little more exciting, since all fragrances are now bottled in the same flacons (after all, with different packaging / labels).
For example, L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme and Guerlain Homme already had more beautiful vessels.
The spray heads are always high quality, as is the glass of the flacons (the light is excellently scattered and reflected).
However, the uniformity of the flacons has of course also something for itself and one can concentrate on the pure fragrance message.
A beautiful fragrance that can be worn for all occasions.
Again, Guerlain has convinced me........

Guerlain Homme - The Art of not taking risks
Guerlain Homme Eau de Parfum was originally released as an Intense version of Eau de Toilette back in 2009. Thierry Wasser(with help from Sylvaine Delacourte) has done both the original and the reformulation in 2016. while keeping the original intact as possible.

Here are my 5 quick takes:

- One of the best fresh scent openings
- A woody aromatic perfume with moderate longevity
- Created by perfumers Thierry Wasser and Sylvaine Delacourte in 2016
- Best used during warmer weather on a night out and leisure occasions
- Doesn’t live up to its fantastic opening

Guerlain Homme Eau de Parfum is a fragrance that’s easy to love and one of those that are easy to recommend. Guerlain is Guerlain, and Guerlain doesn’t make bad perfumes.

If you are interested in my perfume work and would like to check out the full review, you can find me on my scentgrail website and social media's under the Scent Grail name. Cheers.

Genglement in green
Peering into the shelves of the perfumeries, the homme line of guerlain I have always ignored, always being at the bottom. I first read guerlain homme edt, a beautiful fresh linear, that tastes like mint, lime with a vetiver and patchouli base, beautiful and interesting, but something is missing besides the longevity. I then discover that there is an intense version and I immediately think of an exclusively more long-lived and persistent version but it is not so, the addition of flowers, rhubarb, rum I have totally changed, it has completed to make it become a rounder perfume, he perfected and enriched it. If I think of a classy man in a suit and tie, I imagine him with this perfume, of immense class.
Opens a lot of lime green mint and crispy rabbarbaro, sweet heart with a hint of rum slightly talcum flowers and very classic bottom a nice dry vetiver, almost generic opening but don't be fooled. All the smells and nuances you can imagine with the highest quality you know, it's a perfume for connoisseurs, the most distracted noses can consider it as a simple cool but it's not like that. The real experts will know how to catch the nuances. The green, the sweet, the herbaceous, the flowery makes it a fresh and elegant, never banal and attractive fragrance for classy men. Very versatile but not suitable for kids.
I recommend you take the old versions, the new one has all the notes flattened. Although being edp, it doesn't behave like such, but it knows how to defend.

Homme edp review
I don't have much luck with mint in fragrances, but this was recommended to me as an excellent, fresh modern Guerlain with a mojito accord. I probably should try one to know if it's close, but here is my review, and thank you for watching

That good ol' oak barrel
I blind bought this since it's a Guerlain and it's a modern classic. Have to say, I am very pleased with the scent.
I watched a lot of reviews saying that it has a boozy vibe. I have never smelled rum so I don't know how true that is. I only know what whisky and brandy smells like and this smells like neither.
What I do get is

in the opening: a very bright and uplifting lime, sort of generic since a lot of popular fragrance has citrus opening but its not bad. It smells delicious and very refreshing.
Soon it dries down to this LOVELY LOVELY woody smell. It might be what rum smells like but to describe it..
It smells like a vintage oak barrel used to store some sort of strong spirit, it is not sweet per se but it's not bitter either. The texture of the smell is slightly grainy but smooth.

I really love this one. However, I do prefer Vetiver much more, I just wish Vetiver lasts as long as this one.

Hope you get this one, it's hard for me to see anyone who would dislike this.
