    Default Dandies take note: Guerlain to release the Arsene Lupin duo

    Hang on to your tophats, mes amis! Guerlain will release these two scents in the middle of July or August.

    The two scents will indeed be in EDP strength. Both will retail for $230 dollars for the 100 ml size.

    Le Dandy Version (The Gentleman) will feature as a leather/oriental scent with delicate violets and leather notes. Top: Bergamote, bares rose, bois de rose. Middle: Violet, sage, olibanum, cardamom. Base: Leather, patchouli and mixed spices.

    Le Voyou Version (The Rascal) will feature as a fresh aromatic woody scent with bergamote notes, patchouli, benzoin, woody notes and white musk. Top: Bergamote, armoise, coriandre, citron. Middle: Cardamom, Bulgarian rose, sage. Base: Benzoin, patchouli, mixed spices.

    EDIT: It think "bares rose" is a typo of "baie rose." But it is in the literature.

    No word on that, Mimi. I will post as soon as I know. This means tightening the old belt...or corset, as the case may be...to save that extra money!

    I'm sort of hoping that I like only one of them, because buying two could be hard on the pocketbook, and I'm still looking to get the new cologne.

    Maybe it's just the redneck in me, but Le Voyou looks just a bit more appealing right now. Also, violet can be a scrubber for me unless it's very light, because I'm hypersensitive to it.

    LOL! It's a combination of "daddy" and "dandy."

    A "dadnie" is a dandy so virile that he can't stop siring children on all of his mistresses... LOL!

    I agree, Red, that TWO will be costly.

    I add that these are creations of Jean-Paul Guerlain.

    I can see how the "dadnie" in question would have to pause in thought, recalling how he seduced that particular child's mother in her theatre dressing room. "I will tell you when you are older, dear moppet."

    In seriousness, I do want to sample the Dandy version when this is released!

    Wow, those sound expensive.

    And I still haven't even tried Tonka Imperiale and the new Cologne de Parfumeur (sp?)...nor have I tried Guerlain Homme Intense. Or that last Aqua Allegoria, I think it was called No. 1 or something like that.

    Too. Many. Guerlain. Releases. Ack!

    Yeah, that's pricey juice. But with my new found respect for Guerlain, my hopes are high that they will be worth it.

    I hate it when I see frags I know I'll probably have to buy before they're available-- especially when the release date is still in play.

    Great news!
    In Russia they will be launched about October Lucky you!
    Sure I`ll test them both - and choose one. At least one.
    PS I could swear that I`ve got the bottle picture (glass rectangular in blackened metal case) somewhere in my home computer. But cannot find it now, sorry. So I`ll post it later.

    Primrose: Is there any word who formulated these two fragrances? Was it T. Wasser or someone else? I definately need to try samples of these two. The problem is that they both sound good by the notes.

    Primrose: I like the notes in both, but for the sake of my wallet hope I only like one when tried.

    Considering the price, I think they are probably going to be Guerlain exclusives, ie. it's not going to be easy to find samples.

    Primrose and moon_fish, thanks a lot for the info on scents and bottles! A new emerging Elixirs collection for men perhaps? The wooden case in all its naturalistic ecology is quite un-Guerlain, sadly reminds me of He Wood. Think I prefer all the glitter and gold. Doesn't look like a Jean-Paul idea, more an idea from the marketing department that he despises so much. I remember the marketing lady in that short programme about Jean-Paul talked about a wooden frame, but I assumed it was only the boutique display. But why not? Cologne du 68 also featured a wooden cap and it was beautiful. Obviously I will need to buy both unsniffed... but not before I have read some sniffing comments on BN

    They both sound awesome, but Le Dandy sounds a little more mature and deeper. Two, Two, Two scents together. My frying brain circuits might override my pocketbook!

    Mr. G, I also do not like the wooden bottles. What a let-down! They remind me of something too contemporary, such as the Odori line. (I happen to like Odori scents, but this is GUERLAIN.) I wanted something more 19th century or fin-de-siecle in spirit--something a man could display and enjoy on a vanity top...or the dressing table! I'd even like something in yet another bee bottle. Why ruin the whole inspiration of the famed gentleman-thief character for the two fragrances with something that looks Cubist or Minimalist? I was *not* impressed with the new Voyages bottles AT all.

    I would have loved an Art Nouveau bottle!

    Thanks esp. go to the wonderful sales staff at the Palazzo shops in Las Vegas. They are a wonderful, dedicated staff.

    EDIT:

    These will be Exclusives and only available from boutiques.

    Yes, Primrose, I do agree with you and Mr. G - gold&glass, art-deco or bee-bottles would look better.
    I believe that Guerlain people were thinking about us - not to let item prices jump too high, and also to keep Arsene Lupin duo in range of Parisienne collection.
    New bottles should remind some previous releases, but not being identical. (That`s just my speculation)

    In any way - I would not mind the bottles in case of new colognes made by Jean-Paul Guerlain.
    I even close my eyes for not to see undefinite and unnatural gray-rose-violet colour of juice!

    I will enjoy it with my eyes closed!

    And let me pouring my late thanks to you, Primrose, for the note pyramides.

    Actually, I kind of like the look of those bottles (and I do have some Odori).

    While I can see the appeal in here for very old school Guerlain bottles, my guess is they're trying to lure new buyers with a new looking bottle. They wanted something that stood apart from their other stuff.

    While traditions hold a lot of water with many of us, the average schmo they're trying to get on the hook for a $230 of "smells purdy" juice would probably prefer that design to a bee bottle.

    Too, many of us in here (self included) are going to rush to try these regardless of packaging. Primrose would buy a special edition scent from Guerlain called Le Dandy if it was in a recycled Coca-Cola can (me too).

    ROTFL! Or even a small empty airliner bottle that used to hold some Courvoisier!

    StylinLA, you're a man after my own heart! You are on target, I think, about the "casual" Guerlain buyer, not the connoisseur.

    Moon_fish, thanks to you for your early report on these two scents and the great bottle pictures.

    The Rascal sounds like a 'sports' fragrance.

    In the Dandy it will be interesting to see how they handle the interplay of violet, incense and leather notes
