    I'm genuinely curious: why your choice is restricted to those four?

    I would go for regular Habit rouge, but the others are good too. I agree with alfarom that others could be explored; Derby is great, but very expensive.

    thanks everybody : )) habit rouge l'eau is also the one im considering mainly because the vanilla is less dense than in the ordinary HR .. But also love the mint/citrus mojito-esque Guerlain Homme ..

    then Habit Rouge. I don't know what's your budget but if you'll have the chance, give a test to a bunch of the so-called "feminines" such as Sous Le Vent, Vol De Nuit, Vetiver Pour Elle and Jicky, plus some other masculines such as Coriolan, Derby, Mouchoir De Monsieur and Heritage.

    Out of your list, Guerlain Homme; but personally, I'd go for L'instant de guerlain pour homme extreme.

    I haven't tried Habit Rouge L'Eau, but I am not a fan of the other three listed. These are the "bottom of the barrel" Guerlain fragrances IMO.

    Those four are some of the worst Guerlain has to offer. They have so many more amazing masculine fragrances:

    Derby, Habit Rouge, Vetiver, Eau de Guerlain, Mouchoir de Monsieur, Jicky, Dandy, Coriolan, L'instant...

    Tried Derby for the first time yesterday. That's the one for me.

    Habit Rouge is great too.

    Guerlain Homme L'eau. Also, Guerlain Homme Intense if you can find it. I own and enjoy both of these fragrances.

    Didn't care much for the original Guerlain Homme.

    If you're near a Guerlain boutique, or even a department store, I would advise you to make a visit and sample as many of their offerings as possible.

    2. Regular Habit Rouge
    3. Mouchoir de Monsieur
