    More than anything else, my reaction is...hmm! What an interesting choice of fragrance for the purpose of handing the haters their hats. I'm not familiar with Guerlain's other colognes, but I agree, this isn't anything that would make me think "Guerlain" if I tried it blind. On the other hand, I'm afraid the sublimity is passing me by - it seems pleasant enough but short-lived.

    I get mostly opening notes of what I'd summarize as "key lime" (though it's apparently a mix of many hesperidic notes) and vanilla. The body brings out more of the spices, and the drydown is quite faint on me. Actually, the tail end is a bit sicky-sweet and smells a bit like toilet bowl cleaner (the blue squirt-under-the-rim type). I swabbed half of a 1mL sample, but after two hours I could only smell it right on skin.
    Well at least it didn't come off as "Guerlain"! Not everything will be for everyone, on me it lasts and lasts and lasts. And I definitely understand the sickly sweet comment, it can, and sometimes does come off like that, but for the other times, I just love it.

    Yes! I may agree or disagree but I will defend to the death anyone's right to---Oh, I dunno.

    Is this the right thread for an argument?

    This isn't an argument - it's Guerlain abuse!
