    Cool Guerlain NEW release in Spring 2012 - L'Homme L'Eau Boisée (Vetiver-based Chypre)

    According to this article at Fragrantica.
    http://www.fragrantica.com/news/Guer...2012-2782.html

    L'Homme L'Eau Boisée sounds promising. Especially, if it is really a vetiver-based chypre.

    If Guerlain can use Vetiver instead of Oakmoss to make a Chypre, it will be a good news to fragrance community.

    Guerlain L'Homme L'Eau Boisée is a new and unexpected spin on the popular masculine Guerlain L'Homme. The new edition is taking the direction of a woody chypre, but the effect is illusory: the backbone of the fragrance is vetiver, the exotic grass from Southeastern Asia which gives its refreshing quality to many classy masculine colognes, none the least than Guerlain's own classic Vetiver.



    In Guerlain L'Homme L'Eau Boisée the vetiver is well-behaved, creating the tonality of a noble chypre fragrance with an underscoring of subtle smokiness. The tempered effect will make this new addition to the Guerlain stable a launch to be considered by the ladies for personal wearing as well.

    Yes! I want it! I liked Homme L'Eau, but it was a bit one-dimensional for me. I loved Kenzo's recent "woody" flanker, and I hope this is just as interesting. Vetiver twisted into a chypre also sounds fascinating - if not novel. I will definitely seek this out.

    Thanks for the heads-up, W_S.

    LOL. Yup.... Flanker Sport, Flanker Woody, Flanker Intense....

    Sometimes I just wish somebody would throw us an Edsel - if only to liven things up a bit.

    That said, I thank the stars that I've learned to take great pleasure in even small improvements in fragrance. Whether that's actually delusional or not, I'm not about to ask. The big breaks seem so few and far between, I just tell myself - whatever keeps me loving the stuff.

    Apart from the fact that any added wood is good wood as far as I'm concerned (the minor improvement I'm hoping for), I hold out some small hope for more. Specifically, that what we're reading here isn't just making a mountain out of a molehill - about what is, essentially, a "vetiver-based chypre". Really? If the chypre effect is actually being gotten with vetiver instead of oakmoss, then - damn - that's actually rather interesting.

    Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme is said to be a woody chypre, and I agree that it has a distinct chypre note, but I thought that was synthetic oakmoss. I personally love that note, brief as it sometimes seems in that one. Is there something similar here? Well, if there is, it's fine with me.

    I'm willing to give this a chance. The fact that they're actually saying the ladies might like it - well, given that it's not a fruity floral - there might be enough retro chypre spin on this thing to make it worthy.

    That is the reason why I am looking forward to try this flaker.

    Vetiver and Oakmoss smell really different from each other so it is quit interesting to see to result.
