    I was actually surprised to hear that the leather-cased EDP HAD oud. Like you Mr. G., it lasts forever, 12 or more hours. But then again, so does a vintage version of the EDC.

    One bottle of Beau Cavalier will do it for me.

    The EdP has really been reformulated to be, to my nose, more in the line of a concentrated EdT
    The oudwood note has been replaced by a more proeminent iris and leather accord; but the drydown, at least on a paper strip, is too sweet and synthetic

    Hi everyone, I have some questions for Habit Rouge experts, and they concern the EdP reformulation (from "faux leather" bottle to glass bottle).

    I know the difference is that the new EdP doesn't have agarwood, and the old does. But has anyone actually tested the diffferences on skin, i.e. full wearing? And if so, what are they and which do you prefer? Also, are they different enough so that owning both would not be superfluous?

    I'm asking also because I suspect the new EdP is more "leathery" than the older viersion, and the older is more "woody," but I kind of like the idea of a leathery habit rouge--so maybe in this case the newer reformulation might be rather good, i.e. a totally different variant than just a "bad" reformulatoin.

    Thanks so much for any clarification!

    I have the OSO1 EDP batch (May 2010 without simili).
    I confirm that when comparing it to the EDP with simili and M7, EDP with simili is between M7 and HR EDP OSO1 May 2010.
    EDP with simili has less citrus the new EDP.
    EDP with simili HAS LOVELY oud (similar to Jubilation XXV, smells more expensive than M7), the new EDP doesn't have it.
    The new EDP is similar to the EDT, but you have to wait longer for the exquisite drydown.
    As lasting power of EDT is already decent, I would stay with the original EDT.
    But please Guerlain you should sell the simili EDP again!!!

    Getting a friend to pick up a bottle of the EDP for me in Paris, what's the current incarnation like? I see that the Guerlain web-site lists Oud still as a base note.

    The EDT is enough of an atom bomb. I can't imagine what a parfum version would bring.

    The Eau de Parfum is being discussed here, but there is an actual parfum concentration that I have a very small sample of. It's fantastic and warm. It's not particularly similar to other Habit Rouge concentrations in my opinion. I really think you would love it.
    My Top Ten:

    1: Guerlain - Habit Rouge
    2: Guerlain - Jicky
    3: Guerlain - Mouchoir de Monsieur
    4: Guerlain - Shalimar
    5: Knize - Knize Ten
    6: Caron - Yatagan
    7: Caron - Pour Un Homme
    8: Jean Desprez - Bal a Versailles
    9: Yves Saint Laurent - M7
    10: Salvador Dali - Dali Pour Homme

    The parfum version is wonderful if you can find it, but I am happiest with the EDT and the EDP.

    So does that make Habit Rouge EDP an acceptable smell? Or are there better versions out there excluding the pure parfum.

    Cheers
