    Habit Rouge by Guerlain

    Habit Rouge is trying so hard to maintain a saccharine smile that it becomes strained and abrasive. The orange and vanilla top always makes me think of those Creamsicle pops. There's a glimmer of hope as a bit more wood makes itself apparent, but it just can't escape the stiflingly thick red curtain of talcum powder, orange peel, and something anisy. There's also a trace of the skunky, salty kitchen-spice component that bothers me in things like Wellington and Blenheim Bouquet, even though HR is in such a different family from these. Overall, it's an unnatural, unpleasant combination of heterogenous notes that is completely inappropriate for me.
