Disgustingly beautiful Guerlain. As Jennifer Patterson says when dipping her finger into golden treacle, "Childhood, childhood". James Fox, Hugh Grant, Jeremy Northam...

Ah, Spaceblues I wish I would have listened. I purchased a FB of the perfume strength. I cannot believe how wonderful the scent, but how short-lived it is. Fame is fleeting...all too fast.

I fell in love with this at first spray, but was quickly disappointed. After only a couple of hours it's basically gone - not even much of a skin scent left. If it had even somewhat decent longevity I would have purchased a full bottle.

A mature and timeless fragrance: Powdery, stable, unashamed, and predictable from spritz to drydown.
Probably not for everyone...a test spritz would be helpful to see how suitable it is for one's chemistry, personality, and social responses. Many steps down from its outrageous cousin, Habit Rouge!

My comments relate to a 2009 edp, tall bottle, gold cap.

I've grown to appreciate many masculine orientals as special occasion fragrances (e.g. Tiffany for Men, Rochas Lui) and not really suited for office/every day wear. Heritage is one of those.

The overall vibe is one of a primed cedarwood humidor, sans cigars, itself encased in a subordinate powdery vanilla. There's an animalic accord (castoreum would be my guess) throughout, however (other than the arguable assault of an open) that bit is largely noticeable only upon close-up sniffs. Classy and sophisticated. Longevity is good, projection/sillage low.

I believe someone once commented that Heritage is perhaps one of the best uses of vanilla in men's perfumery. No argument here.

This is the fragrance that made me realize why this board loves Guerlain.
A great gentlemanly fragrance. The citrus, lavendar and the coriander in perfect unison. And then the guerlainy drydown.
It has similarities with Zino Davidoff vintage version.

I have tried various vintages and I think it went through weird reformulations and improved in mid 2010s. I would get the latest bottle or pre 2005. But if you love Moss go for pre 2009. The vintage had great Moss note that is missing in current version.

This can be had for under $50 online so perfect for blind buys.
