    Lime, mint, rum and veitiver. Sounds intoxicating. Great scent that I had to have because of the many references to Terre d'Hermes, which I own and wear frequently.

    Unfortunately, GHEB is so similar to TdH that I can barely tell them apart. I don't get much mint at all and no rum notes what so ever in GHEB. Between the two, I prefer TdH because it projects better, better longevity and is slightly less sweet in the dry down. If you don't own either, GHEB is less expensive than TdH.

    Good fragrance, but too similar to something I already owned.

    Lime Vetiver on Wood. This fragrance is classy, simple, and sophisticated. Great scent I love to wear in the Spring and Summer. It does start and break down just like TdH, just with different notes. If you like Terre d'Hermes, you will want to give this a serious look.

    Some lime but it burns away quickly into Terre D'Hermes territory with the vetiver and wood. I don't notice much rum but the lime makes the vetiver "tangy" and sharp. The sour sharpness reminds me of Encre Noire. It's an interesting scent but Terre D'Hermes is more evocative. If you don't like the orange/grapefruit in Terre D'Hermes but you know you like lime then this is the scent for you.

    Just tried this as a blind buy, was looking to replace my discontinued M7 Fresh. This is very different than M7 Fresh, more fresh and more green. I love the natural fresh cut vetiver grass smell. This vetiver is new to me nothing like the vetiver in Encre Noir Sport which I have. Overall mid scent is vetiver, lime and mint, a perfect salad. Smells like a spicy citricy salad thats allmost eadible.
    I ordered a botle of Guerlain Vetiver as a blind buy after realy liking this one. Im trying to get my colection down to my top 5 and this will remain along with Habit Rouge, and M7 Oud Absolu and Encre Noir Sport.

    Guerlain Homme L'Eau Boisee opens with sour lime citrus over faint whiffs of peppered cedarwood. As the composition transitions to its early heart the lime softens but remains, as slightly synthetic grassy greens and spearmint join the gradually strengthening black peppered cedarwood with sharp vetiver additional support. During the late dry-down the peppered cedarwood takes control with the sharp supporting vetiver remaining through the finish. Projection is average, but longevity is outstanding at well over 15 hours at strength on skin with the composition still detectable past 24 hours.

    Guerlain Homme L'Eau Boisee was a composition I expected to dislike. Let's face it, most flankers disappoint as they tend to be money grabs to cash in on the original composition's success. In this case the source, Guerlain Homme, was a complete bust housed in an equally unimpressive bottle, so its flanker seemed destined for failure as well... Moving past the extremely low expectations going in I sprayed the composition on skin during my recent visit to the Guerlain Boutique in Las Vegas and immediately knew I was going to have to eat my words. L'Eau Boisee with its peppery cedarwood profile immediately conjures up images of one of my favorite compositions, Terre d'Hermes. The primary difference is it swaps in a really nice lime accord with hints of various greens including mint to give the composition a slightly fresher profile. Taking this thought further, I actually see L'eau Boisee smelling closer to what the disappointing and wholly forgettable Terre d'Hermes Eau Tres Fraiche flanker *should* have smelled like. The only negative of any consequence is the composition is extremely linear, but that is far from concerning. In short, I count myself quite lucky I gave this flanker a go, as it turned out to be a *very* positive surprise, proving far superior to both expectations and the composition it supposedly is derived from (Guerlain Homme). The bottom line is the $41 per 80ml bottle found at online discounters Guerlain Homme L'Eau Boisee may have a name that is a bit too long and was derived from a dud, but this "excellent" rated 4 star out of 5 composition has proven that flankers can (and sometimes do) outshine their sources. Terre d'Hermes fans take particular note, especially if you prefer a more fresh green spin to your year-round favorite.

    If this would be a designer, I'd give it a neutral rating. But it's a Guerlain, for heaven's sake, why does it have to smell so utterly boring? I get vetiver and vetiver with a little hint of vetiver. Very original. It's a safe, citrus-fresh summer scent for unappealing men who bring nothing to the table, sorry to put it that bluntly. Drydown smells similar to Terre d'Hermes which, honestly, is miles ahead qualitywise. After ahve longevity and sillage, complement factor non-existent and price too high. What was Guerlain's intention behind this? "We need to generate some money, quick, do a Terre d'Hermes/Issey Miyake rip-off!"

    Pros: bottle has a wooden cap, very neat!
    Cons: uninspired, unoriginal, boring - not worthy of its house.
