    Default Guerlain Homme vs Guerlain Homme L'eau

    Hey everyone,

    I was looking for a new fragrance and after some research and trying, I tried Guerlain Homme. I really liked the smell of it. But I read some things about the GH L'eau. That some people thought the original was really bad comparing to the l'eau version. If I like the original, will i like the l'eau version? I know, the question is kind of strange but I really like the Mojito smell of the GH. There are no samples in this area available. But if indeed, the L'eau smell is better then the original, maybe then i'll just give it a blind shot. I'll be glad to read your opinions.

    Many thanks in advance.

    I tried both but my taste changed lot since testing both of them.

    First was original Guerlain Homme that I found to be bit heavy and kinda old guysh.
    I didnt like it much.

    2 months ago I tested L'Eau Guerlain Homme. I liked it much better than I remember original. Very fresh, simple, but sophisticated and expensive smelling to my nose. Citrus on top, then something like bright vetiver.
    Current TOP 5 from my collection:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Chanel Coromandel
    3. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
    4. Encre Noire
    5. Dior Homme Intense

    I decided to give a blind shot to the l'eau. And WAUW, if you like the original, you will love this one. It's just perfect!
    Thank you for your fast reply.

    L'Eau is one of the best citrus/aquatic I've come across. Much better than the original, or the intense Homme. Highly recommended, and the six positive reviews (with no neutral or negativ) say something about it, too.

    Also have both and agree with others that you will also like L'eau.

    Anyone know where to purchase this in the US (or a website that carries it?)

    No there was summer edition of Guerlain Homme released in 2010 that is called Guerlain Homme L'Eau. Unfortunately it is almost impossible to buy it now but I hope they will rerelease it this summer.
    Current TOP 5 from my collection:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Chanel Coromandel
    3. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme

    different
    Guerlain homme/l'eau is a fresh fragrance that supposedly smelling like mojito. On the other hand, L'instant is more an evening fragrance that leans toward more to the spice side.

    l'eau has a great grapefruit note, which can be a very annoying note in so many scents... it's done well here. I love all 3 of the Guerlain Homme scents.
