Reviews of Guerlain Homme

Review is for Guerlain Homme Eau de Parfum (in the tall bottle):

This starts off with a strong white rum note blended with peppermint and lime, to smell exactly like a mojito. The rum is the strongest however, while the lime and peppermint are in the background. When spraying this on my skin it actually gives me a slight cooling sensation - possibly due to the mint. Although I don't drink alcohol, I'm a huge fan of alcoholic colognes, and own a number of them with rum, tequila, vodka, gin, and other alcoholic drink notes (e.g. Tommy Bahama Set Sail St. Barts, Pinaud Clubman Virgin Island Bay Rum, Guerlain Homme Eau de Parfum, Carven Le Vetiver, Ungaro pour L'homme III). The mint is not realistic mint nor is the lime realistic, while the rum is the white variety and not bay rum. But together they smell quite pleasant nonetheless. The fragrance overall leans very masculine and is a sort of "night out" type of scent. On drydown it gives me nice wafts towards my nose of a very intoxicating (pun intended) mojito which smells better in the air emanating from my skin than if I sniff my skin itself. It later changes to basically dominant white rum with peppermint and a hint of vetiver, while the lime disappears. Sillage is moderate and longevity is moderate - becoming a skin scent in about 2 hours - but lasts as a skin scent for many hours after that. Overall this is the best true "mojito" fragrance in my opinion.

4.5/5

Sporty green L'Instant,
Such charms revealed to those who
Spray less and smell more.

Disappointed by this one. Like the rest of the Guerlain I've tried so far, it's not that it's bad, it's just that it isn't what I had hoped it would be. I see no need for the Guerlain Homme line of fragrances when there's Terre d'Hermes out there that accomplishes this with much better performance.

Perfect modern Guerlain. Eau de Toilette version is indispensible, but discontinued. Stock up.

Respectable idea but poor execution from Wasser. The mojito/lime accord is distinctive, but is let down by ingredients that miss the mark, and the base is rather insubstantial. Essentially a boozy lime-mojito accord followed by at-times screechy florals and cedar-vetiver notes. Rather weak, and very fleeting - also quite a bit synthetic and cheap at times. This is all the more proof that accountants rule the roost at Guerlain, and that quality can be relegated to the disposal bin.

The opening with its lemon-and-mint dyad declares this as a summery composition. There are hints of booziness present. In the drydown a mixed bouquet of mainly white florals develops, and in the base a nonspecific woodsy undertone.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and six hours of longevity - not bad for a citrus-laden product.

This scent is summary with citrus and mint, but nonetheless is not a bright refreshing blast, but more of a slightly darker and warmer composition. Imagine a lighter, less green and less complex version of Versace's Versus. At times this is a bit too generic. 2.75/5.
