Its hard to go against a Guerlain - ANY Guerlain in the last couple of years. I know there is a certain prestige and history behind the brand, but it was still there before LVMH acquired it and saved it from trouble. I didn't see this much adulation and goo goo gaa gaa a few years ago, when the Guerlain scents themselves might have been in a better shape than they are right now.
As far as I am concerned, I will take the currently available Rive Gauche over the currently available Heritage anyday. And I will take the currently available No. 88 over the whole stuble of currently available Guerlains anyday.
