A good choice, indeed. Also one of my top-favourites by Guerlain. I consider it "unisex", by the way.
Melancholy, L'Heure Bleue and a glass of wine on a September afternoon.
I have long enjoyed Habit Rouge EDT, but the new EDP with agarwood (oud) is amazing.
The agarwood gives the special citrus leather of HR a special touch. If you get a chance, sample this and be prepared to swoon.
I recently bought a big bottle of vintage Habit Rouge EDC off eBay. I'd sampled the current EDT and liked it, and I'd heard great things about the vintage EDC; I tend to gravitate towards the classics, and it was a good deal on eBay, so I snapped it up. The bottle arrived this week on Wednesday. I've worn it twice since, and both times I was stunned at how great it is. The eBay seller wasn't exact about the age of the bottle - they only said it was 30+ years old - but I think (I'm not the best at notes analysis) I smell some good quality sandalwood and moss in there. Anyway, amazing fragrance. Now I understand all the plaudits.
Habit Rouge IS the one. Makes me melt.
I used a bit of my husband's Habit Rouge and now I steal it on a regular basis!
Habit Rouge and Cinnabar are the only two fragrances that have brought me compliments at work. I work in a small office and the people are not very "worldly" to say the least but Habit Rouge especially brought compliments...especially from the only other guy there...haha
sure shot...if you want to feel utterly sexy!
Habit Rouge is mesmerizing to me. So much so I was going to try HR Sport, but after reading the reviews and a good 70-80% said it reminded them of a watered down version of HR. No thanks I like the powerful fragrance of HR EDT!
