    Default Like Shalimar EDP which Habit Rouge?

    I really enjoy my wife's Shalimar EDP. Based on this, which version of Habit Rouge would I most likely prefer, the EDT or the EDP? Which smells most similar to Shalimar?

    I love both.
    Your choice should be the vintage EDT, definitely not the EDP.

    Quite right. Look for the EdT in the gold cap. Or just wear Shalimar EdP (lots of men do).

    I'd rather go with Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan instead of any Habit Rouges!
    Definitely more chick and not dated at all, and similar enough at the same time to Shalimar EDP...
    Any idea?
    My current top 10 (with no particular order):
    Givenchy Xeryus Rouge
    Dior Homme Intense
    Dior Fahrenheit
    Costume National Scent Intense
    Terre d'Hermes EDT
    CK Eternity for Men
    Creed Aventus
    YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme (Old Tin Can)
    Thierry Mugler Pure Malt
    Costume National Homme

    As an alternative, you could also go for Vol de nuit, which is the other main oriental from Guerlain.

    This one.

    EDT for sure...the Habit Rouge EDP has a lot of oud and smells quite different than the EDT, IMO. To me, the current formulation Habit Rouge EDP smells similar to vintage M7 by YSL.

    Habit Rouge EdT. If you get a chance give Jicky pure perfume a try.

    Have you tried Shalimar Ode a la Vanille Sur la Route du Mexique? This one can be found on Fragrancenet for around $45 and is a very nice version of Shalimar.

    What he said ^

    Or just wear Shalimar EdP.
    "The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.

    You begin to awaken"

    -- Eckhart Tolle
