    Default Best Guerlains mans fragances

    Hello everyone at the moment I just have a bottle of Guerlain Vetiver wich I really enjoy to bad I did not knew that it was a extreme Vetiver of Guerlain, that will get it next, but I been looking reviews of others Guerlain fragances and I really would like to know what you guys think are the best for Spring Summer and for the coldest months, Thanks to all.

    For warmer weather definitely check out the Guerlain Homme line. They're not your stereotypical summer fragrances as they are not aquatics. I own Guerlain Homme Intense and its great for summer nights. While Guerlain Homme has a nice mojito accord (lime, mint, rum) Guerlain Homme Intense sheds more light on the booziness and vetiver with some (slight) sweetness while still having that minty, green vibe. I've heard good things of Guerlain Homme L'Eau as well (grapefruit, mint).

    The best Guerlain "masculine" marketed strictly to men, would have to be Derby.

    All the "vintage" line, and among the recent ones, L'instant.
    My current top five:

    Guerlain - Homme Intense
    Angela Ciampagna - Liquo
    Charenton Macerations - Christoper Street
    Dior - Fahrenheit Absolute
    Azzaro - Pour Homme (vintage)

    +1 for spring and summer - I have it on today! I think I'm unusual in not finding it much like TdH - many do - other than involving wood and citrus, but it's very appealing and not like everything else. For cooler weather there are many - L'Instant and Heritage would be my picks.

    That's easy: Habit Rouge!

    There's lots of versions to choose from. My favorite: vintage Eau de Cologne.

    If you want to stick to what's marketed as masculine, these ^^^ are definitely two of the best. I also quite like Habit Rouge EDC and Vetiver EDC (sadly both discontinued), Habit Rouge Sport, Coriolan, Arsene Lupin Dandy, Vetiver and Heritage.

    All I tried I bought. Even the despised Guerlain L´Homme is excelent. By far, the best House around...

    Shalimar
    Habit Rouge
    Coriolan
    L'Ínstant
    L'Instant Extreme
    Habit Rouge
    Habit Rouge revamped / modernized (forgot its name)
    All the Vetivers

    If these, which are the common ones, are wonderful, I ca't imagine how the Les Exclusives are like.

    Am guessing LIDGE would be too sweet for you since you dig vertivers, i'd say you try Habit Rouge Edp.

    The two Guerlain's I wear the most are:

    Spiritueuse Double Vanille (which isn't marketed as a masculine, but who cares?)
    Eau du Coq (my favorite of their colognes)

    The house has a lot of great stuff that covers the whole spectrum of perfumery. Figure out the type of fragrance you want and then go from there...

    So many good ones to choose from, as evidenced by the responses here. For me: Vetiver, Coriolan, Heritage, and Habit Rouge EdP.

    Incidentally, I agree with Jack Hunter, I like Habit rouge l'eau and I feel it is seriously underrated. Not just a sporty Habit rouge at all...
