Reviews of L'Homme Idéal Eau de Parfum

A charming, classy, unique, and dare I say sexy spring/autumn fragrance. Like the most sophisticated herbal cherry-almond liquer imagineable sipped while wearing a brown leather jacket on a cool autumn night. A fire is burning somewhere far off, and you can smell the distant smoke mingling with the scent of leather. This is also a gorgeous tonka and rose fragrance, both of which are pretty prominent on my skin. Luckily I love both of those notes, so this one checks all the boxes. Sweet, but hardly a gourmand, L'Homme Ideal EDP is the perfect warm, cozy scent for a night out or in during the cooler, but not outright frigid seasons. For a cold winter, I'd have to bust out something with a little bit of extra strength. As much as I love this one, it's not the best performer. I get maybe 4-5 hours tops with only moderate projection and sillage in the first hour before it fades to a skin scent. This is a consistent problem for the Guerlain L'Homme Ideal line, and I hate it because almost all of them (maybe not Sport) smell great. With a bit more presence this would surely be hailed as one of the best masculines (though it is unisex) on the market.

Had the potential to be quite spectacular. The opening is great but the dry down becomes quite boring and the longevity is terrible.

Opens up with a really nice vanilla/rose combo with a touch of almond in the background. There is also a slight spicyness. It sounds a bit feminine but It's really not. After an hour it starts to fall apart and I was left unimpressed. After the 3 hour mark it was hardly noticeable.

Similar concept and feeling as the EDT in the opening. But I smell the rose here. The jammy rose takes this to a sweeter, bit more sultry and luxurious area. Reminds me of Dior's Ambre Nuit. It sort of sparkles. I see red strawberries, dripping with water and a glass of champagne. The fake cedarwood from the original is replaced by incense. I couldn't smell any incense until over an hour in, at which point it came through subtly, not overwhelming the rest of the fragrance. Sits closer to the skin, would prefer a bit more push. Prefer the EDT overall.

Perfectly blended scent, especially for the colder days. As already mentioned, vaguely reminiscent of Feve Delicieuse and Dior Homme Parfum mixed together, but not that strong.

L'Homme Ideal EdP presents itself as a modern creation worthy of the Guerlain name. The heart and base notes are prominent from the start and there do not appear to be any major developments. A smoothly blended composition, warm but never too sweet or "overdone", indeed setting it apart from similar offerings - and there are plenty. In fact I find the main risk to enjoying this to be that it does at its heart follow the current trend for sweeter fragrances, potentially getting lost in the haze. It strikes me as one of these fragrances that might acquire a more positive reputation once time, the great healer, has washed away any disdain that some might have for new things that come from such sacred houses, when it is distributed in generic bottles with only the name and possibly colour distinguishing it from the family. Whether the stain that it leaves on Guerlain is complimentary, unsightly or even forgotten remains to be seen, but in this instance it comes recommended.

Both this and the original EDT (particularly the latter) remind me of Jean Paul Gaultier’s Le Male, but I would say the Guerlains are more refined. I prefer the EDP to the EDT.
