    Guerlain Homme opens with a very natural mojito accord (consisting of mint, lime, white rum, and sugarcane) that quite literally smells like the drink itself. After awhile it transitions into a woody, citric, and slightly powdery vetiver. This is a great spring fragrance that reminds me of being on vacation.

    Strangely enough, Guerlain Homme's three flankers are equally amazing.

    Guerlain Homme opens up with a lime/mint blast that is very invigorating. It's almost a bit much at first, but this opening makes it a fragrance that will give you some serious relief in the extreme heat of summer when initially applied. Right after you get that cooling blast, you can start to pick up on the rum note. It's not very pronounced, but it does a good job of sweetening the fragrance a bit while adding a sense of density and darkness to the mix. As it dries down, the vetiver and cedar join the show, but they only play supporting roles. That lime/mint combo is truly the star of the show, and it lingers throughout the entire duration of the fragrance.

    It's a lovely scent, but the performance is terrible. It projects for up to 2 hours, and then it completely disappears after that.

    To me, I think this is a relatively versatile fragrance if you don't factor in the poor performance. The mojito vibe is great for casual wear, but when the darker notes mix in with that clean feel, this scent seems perfectly suited for a professional setting. It can be worn day or night, and it's a good option for all seasons except winter.

    From strictly a scent standpoint, I think it would be hard to find a designer fragrance better than this for the summer at this price point, but with its weak longevity, I couldn't justify keeping it in my collection. However, if you're not totally against the fresh-y trend and don't need beastly performance, definitely give this one a try.

    Star Rating: 3/5
    Bottom Line: Unique, quality fragrance in the crowded designer citrus market that unfortunately suffers from poor performance

    Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

    Some weeks ago I attended a long religious service, during which my nostrils were assaulted by a thick, cloying, powdery-sweet woody scent of excruciating potency. I was eventually able to trace the source to my wife’s cousin Howie, seated on a bench three rows ahead of us. I spent the remaining two hours of the service alternately wondering what the loathsome fragrance could be, and silently cursing cousin Howie for dumping half a bottle of it over his head.

    I take it all back, Howie.

    The scent, I now realize, was Guerlain Homme, of which I’ve found mere drops suffice to fill a room with a screaming miasma of crude, banal, overly sweetened drydown materials. It’s the same material that appears in countless cheap mass market fougères and woody scents for men, but the magic of Guerlain manages to amplify it to nose hair curling volume.

    I will concede that Guerlain Homme opens with a charming boozy citrus accord that does evoke the advertised mojito cocktail. Unfortunately, that accord lasts all of five minutes before it’s bulldozed by the powder bomb basenotes, which plow on in linear fashion and shocking intensity for hours unless diligently scrubbed off. The scent works orders of magnitude better on paper than on my (or cousin Howie’s) skin, as the “mojito” accord persists much longer to balance out the base.

    I do, as have others, detect a remote similarity to the discontinued Yohji Homme, which employed a similar sweet, powdery base, but did so with much greater finesse and subtlety. Guerlain Homme has some of the boozy anise flavor that marked Yohji Homme, but Guerlain sets it in more opaque surroundings and thereby robs it of grace.

    Guerlain Homme shares with Sécrétions Magnifiques the remarkable distinction
    of being at once boring and offensive, and I predict that men will buy it by the gallon. Please lord, just don’t let them sit near me.

    Ha!! all the negs can bitch about this scent being "safe, conservative, and mainstream", still smells VERY good to me (its like criticizing a supermodel for wearing a short skirt). This is an excellent spring/summer fragrance that wants to party and have fun....who am I to say no???? Guerlain succeeds with this offering and they needed this in their lineup.

    (I own a bottle, bought this year at Bergdorfs in nyc)

    To me Buysblind review is spot on from start to finish! Nothing to add to that splendid review for me as it is exactly how I think about Guerlain Homme (and its flankers).
    I do want to add that I agree that they differ a lot from what we're used to regarding Guerlain classics as Heritage, Habit Rouge and Vetiver, but these 4 different homme versions imo have to be seen in a kind of persective and will be praised all over as well in let's say 10-20 years from now; at least that is what I think will happen. To me Homme L'Eau Boisee is best!

    Disappointing and typical wood fragrance

    A very disappointing scent for me - I get none of the cool fresh notes from my sample (direct from Guerlain), simply an ordinary mix of patchouli, cedar and vetiver. There is a minty quality way in the background, but not enough to be significant. One of the few Guerlains I find to be mediocre.

    The 11 ingredients: Lime, Bergamot, Mint, Rum, Geranium, Green Tea, Rhubarb Leaf, Vetiver, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Sugar Cane.

    Pros: None
    Cons: Lack of originality
