This is really great--Wasser took his fresh, Mojito-accorded Homme, which I like, Guerlainified it with the house note of Vetiver, and turned it into something I love. Fresh, wearable, ageless, this is the best of the Homme line and is a great addition to the Guerlain stable of fine masculine fragrances. When it first came out, I tried it from a tester at an Isetan store and liked it, but not enought to buy, since I already had a bottle of Homme. Now that I have it and wear it, I am sorry I waited so long! Bien fait, M. Wasser.
Guerlain Homme L'Eau Boisee is a surprisingly well made boise fragrance despite not properly unique in its genre. First of all this scent is a simply structured (despite yet classically appointed) basic combination of hesperides, rooty/earthy elements and dry woods but overall is enriched by the exotic touch of rum and by a trademark general minty aura (throughout present) exalting the "sultry" type of tropical temperament. More than a Guerlain's creation L'Eau Boisee seems having been appointed by the Hermes master perfumers since Terre d'Hermes (due to a really similar combination of woods, vetiver and citrus) and on a certain extent Eau d'Orange Verte (because of its really botanic-thirsty minty/citric "groves conjuring" atmosphere) are fragrances easily jumping on mind while testing this boise Guerlain's recent creation. Another composition jumping on my mind is (on a certain extent) Czeck&Speak Cuba for its accord of bay rum, peppery mint, citrus (lime in primis) and vetiver (despite Cuba be playing as a far darker, mysterious, "rhythmic" and animalic/exotic visceral creation with its connection of dry tobacco, frankincense and animalic notes). Anyway this fragrance is bright, distinguished, neo classic (vaguely "colonial") and surely caribbean (namely exotic) in style. You will be by soon captured by a vegetal musky earthiness surrounded by a "Faconnable conjuring" stout minty aura, slightly herbal and just minimally boozy. The implemented rum is not a seasoned caramellous (sweet-spicy and hyper alcoholic) one but more properly a kind of light, approachable and blond caribbean rhum agricole from Martinica or Cuba (so enjoyable in its perfectly calibrated dosage). Along dry down vetiver jumps on the stage with its salty/earthy rough nature as a standing out protagonist of the woodsy blend (salty, aqueous, piquant, rooty, fresh). Really classy aroma, classy but kind of wild all at once, perfect for a south american "rustication". The wearer will be enveloped by a green icy atmosphere really virile and dry (yet with a touch of boozy dandiness barely supported by piquant spices). Simple, elegant, virile, versatile. Recommend for sure.

First of all: This scent surpasses all the other Guerlain Homme versions in sophistication and character.
Opens up with lime and rum, then quickly goes to the drydown: A lightweight, "skeletal" (yet very well projecting) composition of vetiver and freshly chopped wood. Keeps you smelling fresh and classy even in the highest temperatures.
One of my favourite choices for the hottest of summer days.
Guerlain L'Homme L'Eau Boisée is a clean scent for every man.any time and any season but also nice for a woman who dares snatch it off her boyfriend’s shelf.Your first encounter with this scent is a zesty citrus burst that quickly softens into a refreshing bouquet with a natural herbal quality. Fresh,Soapy,Aromatic,Invigorating, Lively,Lovely and Earthy.
This fragrance has intense citrus notes(lime)and a waterfall of green freshness(grass and mint)soothed by a woody base(vetiver and woodsy notes)create an aroma that is great and uplifting and will definitely get a positive reaction from others.It is not absolutely masculine.
The dry down is really lovely for me.It is kind of fragrances that lift your spirit.It is definitely a day-time scent. anyway if you are looking for a great refreshing scent you can not go wrong with Guerlain L'Homme L'Eau Boisée.
Longevity?Good on my skin.
First there is very strong lemon scent and then it drys down very aromatic and heavy wood. There is something food spice like scent which I don't like much. Anyway this strong and very masculine but quite heavy I not very fresh for me. Lasting power is good.
I liked this very much at first smell but now when I have used this couple of times I think this will not be my long time favorite. 8/10.
I don't like this much anymore : this is too lime and too sharp . I cant get much wood anymore that I smelled at first time ?
