    Further etymology reads "and he will never get laid again as long as he lives if he keeps wearing this."

    PS: I am a white guy in my mid-fifties, and I like Habit Rouge. But it really does translate like that.


    Well, mrcolognegy - it is a matter of education, whether you know the french language to translate in their complexity.

    And not every result, by Google translate is useful!

    Guerlain's Habit Rouge made in it's early 1970th years, was in advertising to the men in red equestrian blazer when hunting on horseback in the forests of France, or in England.See link for Advertising >>> http://www.parfumdepub.com/en/public...Rouge-250.html

    These seem to lose their "je ne sais quoi" in the translation.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    'In an aeroplane' has less of a ring than En Avion for sure.
