I have enjoyed reading basenotes over the year, but just registered myself.
I ordered the Guerlain Habit Rouge EDP 100 ML from www.beauty-enhancement.com
some week ago and received my bottle few days ago. I have smelled the lovely EDT on some occasions before but of some reason have not managed to come around and buy it.
I went ahead and placed an order since I found about EDP had oud notes in it which I love. My new EDP bottle didn't have the "red cover" and surprisingly it didn't have same longevity on my skin compared to EDT.
I have both YSL M7 Standard version, M7 Fresh version and my HR EDP smells like M7 Fresh with almost same longevity on my skin.
I sent an email to Guerlain yesterday and got a kind reply today confirming updated bottle design.
I acknowledge receipt of your mail from 9/15/2010 and I thank you for sending it.
I have the pleasure to reassure you about the product you bought and inform you that the leather girdle on the HABIT ROUGE EDP 100ml has been removed few months earlier.
According to the batch code provided (0S01), the product was made in May 2010.
Thank you for your loyalty and interest in our brand.
