Spicy-woody-oriental par excellence
I don't see (smell) Habit Rouge as a 'love at first sniff' type of fragrance at all. On the contrary, you might actually hate it at first and then one day, all of a sudden, you find yourself in love with it. Habit Rouge opens with lemon note, which is paradoxically both juicy and dry. Things... Read more

What type of man do you want to be? (Guerlain Habit Rouge vs. Vetiver)
Today I will digress in two male mythical Guerlain: Habit Rouge and Vetiver, opposing each other. Guerlain Vetiver: The classic masculine, where the vetiver note has become a benchmark for men. For use with suit and tie, at any meeting. Classy, but also a lot of sobriety. For me, however, it... Read more

What's so dated about a timeless classic?
I know some women feel uncomfortable wearing fragrances designated for men. There are some scents that feel too masculine, either by past associations or by standard men’s fragrance conventions (the use of ‘fresh’ ingredients, aromatics, et cetera). Then there are some fragrances for men that... Read more

Incredible stuff...
Habit Rouge is to me, what either Shalimar or Chanel No: 5 would smell like if they were in masculine form. As with all Guerlain perfumes... This was not one I liked upon first spray (just for reference, when I first tried Shalimar and Jicky they initially smelt of urine and Vetiver reminded me... Read more

Shalimar for Men?
I have just received my bottle of Habit Rouge EDT, batch 3Q01 from March 2013, and if the previews versions were better than this one, then it was just made for Heaven and not for human noses whatsoever. Habit Rouge, as a trait of a real Guerlain, opens strongly like Shalimar EDP. Vanilla gets more... Read more

This is about Habit Rouge EDT
This is about Habit Rouge EDT. I can't write much about this classic. Actually a masterpiece. Classic citrus opening joined by vanilla that turns into a wonderful sweet leather based scent. Unfortunately sometimes it smells like urine in my skin... maybe the amber note mixed with leather?... Read more

Habit Rouge a classic
I simply love it I could drink it out of the bottle. Like Shalimar it is so distinct and recognizable when smelled. I am not a citrus lover but here it is blended so well that it takes on the note of bitter orange. The base of vanilla and vintage leather are just sublime. Unfortunately it... Read more

The Big Opinion Reversal...
I bought the edt version and I thought I liked it when I first smelled the stuff on paper... It had a great lemon/bergamot opening blast that I enjoyed... Then the "mothballs," as others have mentioned (camphor, most likely) came out in full force along with the baby powder. This... Read more

One of the prettier fragrances ever made. And for men! You know it's not from this century.
I find Habit Rouge simple, precise, complete. Knowing Guerlain’s approach, and even in light of its 2003 streamlining, HR’s composition is likely more complex than my nose is able to make out. It is traditionally three-tiered: bergamot/lime, orange blossom, oppopanax. The oppopanax is... Read more

The masculine Shalimar
Habit Rouge confuses me a little. I'm very much attracted to the scent, yet I'm the one that desires to wear it rather than pass it on to some sexy man to please me. Initially Habit Rouge has that familiar lemon-vanilla powdery scent, very much like Shalimar. Certainly the presence of the herbs,... Read more

Tack room or Lady Chatterley's lover?
Something important is missing from the fragrance pyramid, and that's a horse, complete with saddle and bridle. That was the first thing hitting my nose when I tested the fragrance, and a few hours later the gee's still going strong.

I hate spicy/woody orientals. Habit Rouge is a spicy/woody oriental. I love Habit Rouge. That's how good it is.+1
