    Deja Vu?

    I thought the extrait was issued at least 2 months ago, albeit in limited release. I believe MikePerez has a bottle, and I saw a bottle at the Epcot Center Guerlain boutique in early October.

    Oh no Snafoo, I wish I had a bottle but alas I don't. Mr. Guerlain does.

    He mentioned it on this old thread: http://community.basenotes.net/showthread.php?t=216991

    I'm in line already. Any cue as to the price tag? I get the feeling it will be one of the $225+ editions.

    You are half-way there pricewise. Mr. Guerlain mentioned its 290 Euros. Yikes!

    Egads! Those Creed flacons are looking like industrial discounts, even in limited editions. Suddenly Homme doesn't smell so bad, either.

    perhaps this won't be as pricey as the very small release that Mr. Guerlain bought from. I suppose the final number of bottles will dictate commerce, ultimately. Does anyone know if this is just an attempt to drum up sales for those original bottles? or a new bottling with broader range?

    This Habit Rouge fan thinks it does sound dreamy and I want to try it!!!

    On me, alot of Guerlain EdP strengths go a bit too "dirty" smelling (dirty-overly civetish). Seems like the "animalic" aspect gets differing views?

    That's lower than the price I was given at Epcot, which I believe was $500, give or take. I smiled demurely and declined, but on the inside I was thinking "Holy Crap!" Or perhaps my mind was muddled from all of the fumes in the shop and I didn't hear the price correctly. Either way, it was a lot.

    The ml price of Habit Rouge L'Extrait is lower than the feminine extraits, so I'm not too chocked about it.

    Mr. Guerlain,
    Any information as to whether the extrait is/will be available in 500/1000ml sizes?

    So far, I've only heard them selling it in the limited 50 ml bottles, but one can always ask if they will sell a big bee of it But imagine the price...!

    I just called the shop at Epcot (to check the price, just for sh*ts and giggles) and they told me the bottle is no longer available, it's been sold.

    Surely if it were to go on general release it still wouldnt be 290 Euro a bottle ?

    Sounds like something that won't be a general release.

    I contacted the Epcot shop on Feb 4th and they had it in stock!! I was able to order it for $365. With tax and shipping, the total came to $399.95. I received it today. I have bottle #280. I love it! It's different from the EDT that I have...but in a different and good way.

    If you want to try, call Raul Rodriguez at 407-560-6383 or email at [email protected]. Good luck!

    On the subject of the Habit Rouge parfum: How does the parfum/extrait compare with the EDP? I wonder if the extrait still has the great citrus top notes of the EDT and the EDP...

    Only rumours. And perhaps a launch in Europe.

    I do hope they do a wider release of the extrait . Too many exclusive launches by Guerlain -give us a break ! Habit Rouge is so excellent - it deserves to be enjoyed by all of us!

    How different is the extrait version from the regular one? I`m close to ordering a bottle, so i`d like to know if it`s really worth the money i`ll spend on this one...

    As far as I know it is impossible to buy the L' Extrait - do you have a source to buy it from?

    QUITE different. Darker, tauter, less powdery, with a rich cashmere-fine patchouli, almost in style of a leather chypre.

    Oh, I'd like a darker and less powdery version of habit rouge! Does it have that citrus opening of the EDT?

    The citrus opening is much more constrained and "weaved into" the fragrance than in the EdT. The star is that fine patchouli that has facets of Middle Eastern spices and bitter chocolate. Quite luxurious.
