    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.

    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.

    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 WDW.France.Guerlain@disney.com. 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...

    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.

    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.

    My bottle finally arrived (it says it's the 595 on the box). I've sprayed it on a blotter, and my impression is that it's a less sweet and powdery version of Habit Rouge as Mr Guerlain perfectly described. I still get citrus notes at the opening, but they feel more like candied orange peel. It has something slightly sugar and bitter on this citrus accord. This citrus opening has something that makes me think of the orange in elixir des merveilles, but it's more bitter and less sweeter than the orange of elixir des merveilles. There's something smoky and resinous with the orange opening too, and when this first impression start to develop i started to detect a proeminent patchouly note. It's not a camphoraceous or extremely sweet, neither a shy, bloodless patchouly one. It's a salty and dry woody patchouly that it's darker, but comfortable. The patchouly note also suggest something barely powdery too.

    Yes, I get the 'candied orange peel' note too...I love it. It's not 'sweet' smelling per se...rather it smells like something that has been cured with sugar. IMO, the HR flanker that mimics this accord (albeit slightly more transparent) is Habit Rouge Eau de Parfum.

    I usually prefer extrait over any other formulation when it comes to Guerlain, but the EdP is actually my favourite Habit Rouge. The extrait of HR just stays too close to the skin for me.

    I always had curiosity for the EDP, but ended never trying or buying it tough. I liked the HR extrait, maybe the fact that stays close to skin doesn`t bothers me, because the scent is sooo delicious

    It may be close to the skin, but that cashmere-y dry patchouli is so intense that it stays on clothes for many, many days. Almost too many. Habit Rouge earth is all I get when I wear one of my blazers now... Btw: When in Paris I learned that the extrait is now reissued more permanently, same 50 ml bottle but sold in the "normal" Les Exclusifs box. Prize risen to 300 Euros (from 290).

    I think of all the forms of HR--the perfume, the eau de parfum and the EDT--I like the EDP the best.

    The price of the extrait is very high.

    I wonder if the new bottles are numbered like the original issue.

    I tested the reissue in Paris and it didn't appear reformulated to me. But I only tried it on once. The juice seems to have a paler colour than in 2008, oddly since perfume colouring is artificial...?
