    There is something better then the EdP, if you can get it.
    The best version of Habit Rouge must be the extrait, everything is concentrated in there. You must smell.
    I only have a sample of HR, in EdT version. I was like "WOW" when I smelled it.
    The EdT is cheap, through, so you can always get a bottle from the perfume store near you.
    The EdP lasts much longer and it is different. The EdT lasts long enough for me, but the EDP has to last longer.
    I don't know how the EdP smells, and I just can't find it. What more do I have to do then go to the perfume store ?
    How much do I have to go to get HR EdP ? This is a bad joke, Guerlain ! It isn't funny ! On the internet I can't find it too.
    The extrait is just allmost impossible to find. Why, Guerlain ? You must make your fragrances accessible to people.
    The vintage version is unfindable. What a bad joke, Guerlain !
    How can so many people talk about the EdP and Extrait and I can't find it ?

    Hey Jimi! There's a seller on Ebay.co.uk who is selling brand new 100ml bottles of Guerlain Habit Rouge Eau de Parfum - the price is £45.99 (+£5.99 P+P to Romania) that's 244.89 Lei - not sure whether that's expensive or not! Hope this helps! Keep Rockin'

    Hello guys,

    I've been reading threads but not sharing. But this time, I would like to say that my full bottle of Habit Rouge EDP which I bought at Ebay for 90.00 USD (shipping included) was worth it. Great bottle, great transition of notes from citrus to balmy to slight powdery/soapy with a moderate presence of agarwood. This fragrance made me decide not to buy Eau de Savage Parfum version as I feel both had almost the same top but took path differently from heart to base. I may not have Habit EDT yet but with this EDP on my possession now, this is truly a wonderful blind buy. Scent is top notch, sillage is just fine and longevity is great. It smells executive and great for evening events on spring, fall and winter seasons. Habit Rouge EDP, Ferrari Essence Oud, L'Occitane Vetiver, Slumberhouse Norne and Guerlain Vetiver Extreme are my new successful blind buys. Happy smelling to all.

    I like Habit Rouge EDP but find it hard to wear until the weather gets colder. Even then it is a little sweet and tame for me to turn to it often. It is odd that a hard rocker like Keith Richards can wear Habit Rouge for years while the scent itself is so gentile and tame. I prefer these vanilla soft smooth fragrances to have a bit more green, leather or wood in their mix as in: Slumberhouse Norne, Penhaligon's English Fern, Invasion Barbare or Guerlain Mouchoir de Monsieur. But, no denying that HR is a classic.

    Welcome to Basenotes guthrie, good choice!

    Like Buzzlepuff, I shy away from wearing the EdP in the hot S. Florida summer...however sometimes before bed I will spray on some. There is a wonderful element in the EdP that is magnified in the Extrait - sort of a scratchy wood note, that is addictive. It is a note that is not present at all in the vintage EdC (which happens to be my favorite version), nonetheless it is very unique.

    I just received this in the mail today. I had only tested the EDT and knew I needed it on the first try. I found the EDP online and bought it blind since it got such good reviews on here.

    WOW! When I first sprayed it on and for the first 1-2 hours I was beginning to think I had made a mistake. The smell was unmistakably Habit Rouge but a little much. Then suddenly it became so smooth and creamy. Oh man this is one of the best ever made. Words are inadequate.

    THE EDP version, although not often sold in the U.S., can be found at some discounters.

    It is indeed a great scent!

    I can't get over the powderiness of the EdT, but I own a bottle of the EdP and definitely enjoy it when I'm in the mood. Late in the day the oud peeks out here and there, giving the whole thing a woodsy allure.

    I'm in the USA. I found a 3.4 oz. online for 90$. I felt like I got a fantastic deal.

    Gardens, some online discounters in the US carry the EDP from time to time.

    I would check their stock occasionally as you can find the EDP in the leather bottle. The latest EDP release was called Beau Cavalier in the shiny silver bottle covered with the Guerlain logo and stirrups.

    I have purchased 3 bottles (1 to use, 1 backup and 1 for a friend) from ebay seller perfumedpot. They are the faux leather vintage bottles. I see they have gone up in price. All of mine have been legit and very nice indeed

    Apologies for resurrecting this thread but, I used to wear this back in the day and, after seeing it yesterday as SOTD, I decided to once again go for it.
    It was a blind buy (no tester available) as I know it has been reformulated and, back in the 80's I had the EDT version. It was not on display at the Guerlain corner of Harrods and so, I had to ask for it. The clueless shop assistant had a hard time finding it but, success... they had it in stock!
    Very happy with this EDP version. so much so, that I might go for the Extrait on my next trip to Paris.
    Great stuff and wonderful trip down memory lane for me!

    +1.... I purchased a bottle and found it to be one of the worst projecting fragrances that I have ever tried. A total skin scent on me that can only be smelled if you bring your nose to wear you sprayed it.

    This is not at all a skin scent on me, but I have one of the older "faux-leather" bottles... I actually prefer the edp to the extrait, since the extrait just seems like a more concentrated and lush version of the edt, whereas the edp turns into something entirely different, a more woody-leathery concoction, on my skin. My preferences are:

    edp > extrait > edc (vintage) > edt

    But don't get me wrong, I still like the edt.

    Been saying that for years...

    I also found the original EDP (with oud) to be too murky to be enjoyed. Although not a fan, I much prefer the vintage EDT.

    Any version of the EDP is definitely a woodier affair.

    I also never understood all the praise for the extrait. My God, what a wasted opportunity! If you have issues with the EDP, forget about investigating the extrait as its performance is even worse on the skin.

    I disagree with this, I get 10 hours from 5 sprays, although it is no sillage monster.

    Nor do I have any grumbles about the longevity of my Beau Cavalier EdP bottle.

    I find both of these outlast the EdT.

    I own the earlier ("leather" covered) version of the EdP, and have never noticed any trouble with longevity or projection. It's not a monster, no, but hardly weak, and not a skin scent on me.

    I own the EDP version, and it's a classic masterpiece. It's about 4-5 years old, and comes in the all red box with the vertical line with the monogram on. I haven't tried the EDT, but some say the EDT project much better than the EDP. Is that correct?

    Well, on my skin this EDP lasts the best part of 15h. It creates a 3 feet bubble around me for the first 3-4h, and during that time, silliage is very good indeed. Past the four hour mark it gradually comes closer to the skin, becoming a wrist to nose affair at the 12h mark, it stays there for another 2-4h. If in stock, I shall be getting the Extrait next month. Happy chappie here!

    I'm another one which prefers the EDT over the EDP. "Murky" as Trebor put it is an apt description, it becomes overly stodgy and looses the sparkle and translucence which the classic EDT is renowned for.

    I own this one as well and can say it's indeed quite a different fragrance compared to the current edt which is way more powdery, citrus loud, no oud and projects way more first hour. The edt is good but the 'leather covered' edp is brilliant!
