I decided to blind buy this
And I was terrified when I first sprayed it... it DEFINITELY has a femininity to it; the opening especially. A flowery kick to it, with a very waxy feeling of top; honestly I can see the comparison to a woman’s handbag (see @Emorandeira below) being fairly accurate. I can also see the “lemon candy” description fitting as well; almost like a strawberry/lemon cough drop. I didn’t think I was going to like it... until it started to dry down and transform a bit... as it fades out of the opening, the sweetness comes through a bit, and it becomes softer. It becomes a very nice, creamy vanilla scent as the base notes shine through, but I definitely don’t think this will work for the younger crowd. It screams “MATURITY” quite loud in the opening. I think of museums and old school houses every time I lift my wrist and smell it as the opening shines. It’s the “waxy” feeling vanilla note that comes as it transfers from opening into mid that feels odd, and the lemon is really, really strong. I honestly think this would work better for a woman, as the leather note feels more like a designer purse than a leather jacket, or cowboy boots.

Longevity is quite short for me (2019 batch), as it fades away within 3-4 hours.

Not going to be in my regular rotation, but it’s interesting indeed.

Anyone got suggestions of scents to layer it with?

Lemon, vanilla and rose for men
Habit Rouge is a classical fragance but i think is still today seen as a very cool scent by many oeople. The smell remwmber me to a typical candys that i had when a was a Child: lemon sugus! The most noticeble notes for me are the lemon, the vanilla and the rose. It makes a very original fragance, just in the border between femenine and masculine. Some oeople says that It smells like the bah of an los lady (with a mix between perfume, make Up, a leather Wallet etc) but i dont think so. For me this is very nice but i have yo say that the performance in the versión i own (made in 2018) is not very good. I think It is even better un the edt... But the smell is just wonderful, perfect for day time with not too Hot temperatures and to enyoy by myself.

Classique homme de Guerlain
Jicky, Shalimar et Habit Rouge font partis de la même famille, qui en eau de parfum est unisexe. L'avantage de Habit Rouge en l'eau de parfum est la pyramide olfactive plus marquée en trois temps: citron et/ou de rose au départ, puis la présence de cuir et patchouli, enfin la distinctive guerlinade vanillée. (Les parfums Guerlain sont complexes, la description esquissée). La tenue est bonne, le sillage globalement modéré. Il est à noté que par temps plus clément, les notes vanillées deviennent plus présentes et évoquent à juste titre Shalimar. Habit Rouge est considéré comme le Shalimar des hommes. Il est le grand classique de la parfumerie masculine française, au même titre que Eau Sauvage ou encore Pour un homme.

Elegant
Lemon, rose, vanilla, leather... Some of my favourite aromatic notes in a perfume and very well balanced. Compared to EDT this is much better. The EDP is woody and elegant. A little less citrus and vanilla, but more wood, leather. I find it very similar to Shalimar, although it is more intense and powerful.

Smells a lot like Krasnaya Moskva
I just tested this perfume at Galeria Kaufhof. The beginning is very citric, but now, after two hours it smells at me almost exactly like Krasnaya Moskva, the iconic/notorious ladies perfume from the Soviet Union.

KM is a perfume from 1925, very well made in terms of craftsmanship, which only came into disrepute by the fact that it was practically the only perfume in the Soviet Union, otherwise it can certainly compete with the greats of its time, Chanel No. 5 and co. But the resemblance surprises me greatly. In direct comparison here is a hint more leather, while KM is a hint more flowery, but if you don't spray the perfumes side by side, you can confuse them (at least on me). Since I paid 10€ for KM and it lasts 12+ hours, I will not get Habit Rouge. I'm just very surprised, especially because HR is from 2003, almost eighty years younger.

The more "perfect" Habit Rouge...
Everything I considered in the EDT-Version „too loud“ has been „toned down“. But because of the higher concentration it has a longer and much more intensive silliage ´- at least on my skin. And the different notes are much more present, than in the EDT_mixture. It is more complex, with a much more pleasant dry-down – for my taste. Too me, it is the more „perfect“ Habit Rouge. I absolutely adore it....

Habit Rouge EDP - classic, smooth
I own both EDP & EDT. Between the two, I prefer the EDP, the EDT seeming more harsh, or raspy (comparatively). The EDP seems more refined, smoother. I've worn it a number of times, and am still trying to figure it out. Recently, I sprayed the EDP, sat down, listened to music, while I savored the scent's transitions over time. Then, for the first time, I sensed something familiar, but hadn't noticed before... I was thinking burnt vanilla, but, no, that wasn't quite it... suddenly it struck me. For a brief time it conjured up one of the phases of Bvlgari Black. It was that odd, yet pleasant, tea (some say burnt rubber) joined with vanilla that I sometimes get from Black. Anyone else notice that?
