    Habit Rouge by Guerlain

    One of the most overrated fragrances ever, and certainly the most overrated from the house of Guerlain.

    I am sure, a lot of the hype on this one comes from fans of Guerlain, similar to the scenario with Bleu de Chanel and Chanel lovers, with BdC, being just an average fragrance.

    Habit Rouge, is bland, boring, and ancient smelling. While many will not put an age on a fragrance, I most certainly will. Habit Rouge smells old! The opening is a bergamot bomb, with the smell of an old bag of make up, you could say powdery too. If you enjoy powder and bergamot, you'll enjoy this.

    There are things I would rather smell like, other than being doused in talcum powder and bathed in bergamot oil.
