    Question 3 Guerlain Classics ~ Please Vote !

    Shalimar, Mitsouko and L'Heure Bleue. Arguably Guerlain's three most successful womens "classics".
    Which is your favourite ?
    Please DO NOT base your vote on which is the most wearable for a man. Your vote should be based on which is the most incredible of the three. A difficult decision perhaps.....?

    Another for Shalimar

    Good you made the distinction, as I prefer to wear Mitsouko.

    L'Heure Bleue for me. An amazing fragrance with a lovely story behind it. As a bonus, very wearable for a man.
    Fine fragrance is alive; it breathes, unfolds and unravels with each passing hour....

    Shalimar for me, but the other 2 are right up there too. As is Vol de Nuit.

    Curious why a poll comparing 3 fragrances marketed exclusively to women would be posted here rather than in FFD...

    Shalimar
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    I specifically wanted to get a male opinion on which is the favourite of these three women's fragrances.

    This is very tough for me. A tie between Shalimar and Mitsouko with a slight preference for the latter because (generally) I prefer mossy drydowns....

    Its only marketed to women in USA and maybe parts of Europe but in UAE (and I assume the Arab Gulf) & parts of Asia I've visited , these perfumes are marketed to everybody.

    I love them all and wear them all, but I had to go with Mitsouko because it's almost a perfect chypre and I love her mysterious scent and the way she makes me feel.

    Shalimar is a classic and Mitsouko is majestic, but l'Heure Bleue is beautiful.

    Tough, I love and wear them all.

    L'Heure Bleue - it was the first of the three I really fell for, I like the Impressionistic angle . . . makes me think of Debussy and Paris at night around that time.
