    I personally own it and like it.

    I also belong to the ones who like it, or at least, all my testings of this fragrance so far were pleasant and interesting experiences.

    The notes are a bit sharp and you have to like lime. It's nice, but when I owned it I never wore it.

    It's a nice scent, but one of Guerlain's worst imo.

    Agreed, with another house it could have been but coming from G it ain't.

    I think it's their most 'modern' scent, which may not appeal to fans of their more traditional 'dated' scents.
    I think it's a nice scent; It's a citrus with depth to it.

    It's been a while since I tried it, but I remember it being quite sharp and synthetic. Sorry, can't elaborate much more than that. I actually own and enjoy Guerlain L'homme Boisee.

    Guerlain Homme is kind of Guerlain s Bleu (de Chanel). It's a nice scent (the mojito note is well done). But it is not enough for Geurlain fans with a critical/historical perspective on frags. I think this one was not designed to touch that "market" but was an attempt by LVMH to conquer new territories...
    I prefer the EDP though!
    Cheers!

    It's a bit too sharp and nothing unique at all, a mass appealing and marketing design! I expect more than this from Guerlain...
    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

    I like it but do not love it. It reminds me--in a good way--of the smell of original Speed Stick. Nice, but not up to Guerlain's usually high standards. I am wearing vintage Vetiver today and it really shows how great Guerlains can be; not merely good.

    They have to make money somehow. Making a scent which has mass appeal may be a bad thing in your eyes, but it allows the funding of less appealing fragrances which you probably approve of more.
    Obviously, in your ideal world, Guerlain would refuse to do anything so crass as to appeal to public taste, even if that meant going out of business.

    A nice scent but I don't reach for it often.

    I like the mojito top note, but really dislike the base, which seems to heavy for the refreshing opening.

    I own it and enjoy it. Much prefer the L'eau version when temps heat up though.

    It's brilliant. Gets better with repeated wearings. So glad it's in my wardrobe. I wear it frequently, and love it every time.

    It doesnt Get much love since it doesn't smell like typical guerlain. I don't think it lacks quality IMO. It does lack longevity. Smells good and I like it a lot.

    I own it and think it's well done. Anyone know what it's classified as according to Michael Edwards?

    I get a lot of compliments with this one. It smells good, but not great.

    The rating would be probably different if it's not branded under Guerlain ? .

    depends who you are... IMO this is the best designer office scent you can get... it is very conservative. it is not a t shirt and jeans scent. it is for a business meeting .... the best!

    I love the scent, but always found the longevity and sillage to be quite poor.
