    Question New Guerlain fragrance for men on the way?

    While purchasing a bottle of Guerlain Shalimar Parfum Initial for myself today, the Guerlain SA in the store in Dublin told me that a new Guerlain fragrance for men is on the way in the next couple of months. She said that she was going in for training next week on upcoming products, so she doesn't know the name yet, but that it's definitely on the way. She said it would be their first new men's fragrance in 5 years, so it's not just another Guerlain Homme flanker.

    Has anyone heard anything about this?

    No, but I hope it's something true to their roots and not some sort of bow to aquatic light weights or some saccarin sweet clubbing scent.

    Weren't the Lupin duo be men's releases within the last 5 years? Or maybe just was speaking of a mainstream release?

    They were. No one ever said SAs are always on top of their game.

    Guerlain Homme hasn't been around for 5 years yet, has it?

    She definitely meant a mainstream release, as it's only a Guerlain concession within a main department store. They don't actually stock any of the rarer or exclusive Guerlains, just the mainstream stuff.

    I didn't think so either. 3 or 4 at most surely?

    This news used to excite me. But based on their recent track record, it's not something I will be rushing out to try.

    I am willing to predict it will feature the peach note in it.

    It seems since Dior is reformulating with it and it does not appear to be used often in fragrance ... this just may be the start of a trend started by these houses ... But then again, who the hell knows

    As far as I can see, there'll be a face-lifted Habit Rouge:

    I hope it's a whole new fragrance....just pray it's not a fruity or "Million"-like one!

    By the way: I've been two times in Dublin, but never saw any Guerlain shop. Where is it located?

    It's not an actual Guerlain store. It's just a Guerlain concession within a department store called Arnotts on Henry Street.

    If it's true, I'm eagerly looking forward

    I'm fairly sure there ain't a new masculine Guerlain coming - most definitely too soon after Guerlain Homme. I'm sure that SA meant Habit Rouge L'Eau.

    You're probably right. She said she didn't know the name of it, but it was the "first new men's fragrance in 5 years" thing that threw me.

    It`s odd, but Guerlain is one of the few fragrance houses that I have problems finding a fragrance that I realy like. I know it`s like swear in church, but IMO many of their masculine realeses are overrated.. (please don`t hit me ) -I respond to this news with a shrug.

    Hehe. I'm the same. I'm not really a big fan of Guerlain's masculine scents. I'm actually interested to see what Wasser will do with Habit Rouge though. I can't stomach the orginal, so I'll be quite happy if it gets "modernised" a bit. Sacrilege I know, but that's my opinion!

    The marketing teams always introduced "absolutely new fragrances" at the beginning or in the mid of summer, so I think this fall will be nothing except HR L'eau.

    Thanks for the news...it will be interesting to see where they go.
