    Default Guerlain

    Most fresh/aquatic smelling Guerlain frag? Also, is LIDG worth getting? Local stores around here only have LIDG...Im told its very very hard to find LIDGE in the states.

    Guerlain Homme I suppose.
    LiDG: yes or no, depending on whether you like it. Test it to know
    The Extreme is not widely distributed in the US, but if you like the regular one it may be worth blind buying online

    I placed a phone order for LIDGE from Canada. I'm in the US.

    $76.11 total; it hasn't arrived yet... maybe this week? ^_^

    I'd say Guerlain Homme is the best aquatic-like fragrance.

    Try Vetiver Extreme - it's vetiver, minus the tobacco, with a very vivid, watery sport-note. I loved it for a while then I sort of found it tiring & sold my bottle. But for aquatic/fresh lovers it just might work for you. Same for Habit Rouge L'Eau, although that's a bit more difficult to find in the US.

    I tend to define aquatics by the presence of calone or other ozonic notes, but I agree that Homme, although not exactly representative of Guerlain's style, probably fits the bill.

    Another vote for Guerlain Homme

    I wouldn't really call any guerlain a real aquatic but Guerlain Homme would be the closest to having that character.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    True, HR l'Eau is sort of an aquatic. I think I repressed the memory of it.
    Also true that it's nearly impossible to find here. I got lucky with a bottle on eBay.

    -1 Guerlain Homme, it may be the worst Guerlain fragrance . I definitely prefer the Intense version, and the two flankers, L'eau and Boisee.

    It's not like much else, really - other that the EdP version. It's sort of a grown-up gourmand - not as sweet and cloying as many in this genre. Mostly anise, cocoa and patchouli, with some citrusy sparkle at the start, and a smooth powdery texture. It's good for a modern composition. Go spray some on and give it a test drive. If you like it but want something denser, go for the EdP.

    I found Habit Rouge Sport to be pretty watery.
