Check it out - after trying your vintage Habit Rouge EdC (the first one I try that hadn't gone bad) I had to have some. A lot, actually. I got this monster:
I just got my first bottle of the vintage HR EDT. I'm with you - I think I like the current version better. The EDP is so nice too, though. And although it's way too expensive for what it is, l'Extrait is fantastic.
If you get Jicky, just get the EDP refill, like this one:
It's not worth paying extra for the cheap metallic gold grille cover for it, and the EDT is watery stuff. It's crazy how expensive Jicky EDP is. It's about double the cost/ml of Mitsouko and LHB. When I drain this bottle I'm just going to get a bee bottle I think.
I agree - LHB is just so pretty. This outs me as a total nerd, but I imagine the elf queen Galadriel from Lord of the Rings sweats LHB EDC. I don't wear LHB, but I keep it around so I can smell it sometimes. I have testers of both the EDT and the parfum, and I bought my mother a bottle of the EDP so I can smell it on someone occasionally!
I'm a sucker for Habit Rouge, especially in the newer EDT formulation. I love it sooooooooooo much.
I really do have to grab Jicky EDP soon. I'm getting L'Heure Bleue this week because I simply can not live without it.
Hey - I just checked out your wardrobe - we do have a lot of overlap. It's cool to find another HR fan. The obvious omission in your collection is Jicky! If you rate MdM a 5, you have to get some Jicky EDP! Fantastic stuff.
