    Default Vote -Your No1 Guerlain Fragrance, (if you were only allowed one choice) ?

    Because Guerlain has so many releases it was impossible for me to set up a graph-poll, (because the maximum is 20 choices) but please treat this as a poll.

    This means one choice only. Your favourite Guerlain, (if you were only allowed to own one). It can be a womans fragrance if as a male it is your favourite. It can be a flanker, (and please state what strength - edt/ edp/ extrait).

    Votes will be counted at the end.

    Of the ones I have experienced so far, without a doubt Mitsouko.

    I don't have enough experience with Guerlain as a house, but I can definitely say Not LIDGE.

    Of my admittedly very small sampling of the house, I would choose LIDGE.

    Despite the obvious 'tribute' in my username (as Derby was once my 'holy grail' and I spent years tracking it down) I would have to say Habit Rouge - the fragrance which ramped up my interest in perfumes and got me into this state of olfactory addiction...!

    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Goodness, this is like asking me if I'd rather sleep with Thor or Captain America; It's near impossible to choose.

    In being a good boy, I'll say L'Heure Bleue.

    I wish I could mention at least two, but if it's only one, then it boils down to Shalimar EdT. Ask me in five minutes, and I might give you a different answer though.

    Shalimar - vintage, new, or one of the vanilla releases - it would always be Shalimar.

    I haven’t explored Guerlain much, mainly because it is so overwhelming with offerings, but I have to put one out there that is NOT the best.

    Encens Mythique d’ Orient

    Again I’m not trying to switch up the thread purpose, but I feel strong enough about this to get it out there and to give others info. There is so much aldehyde, cheaply done rose, and saffron upfront and it never develops into any of the promising basenotes. It doesn’t mix well at all, and just overall a big disappointment.

    I will keep checking this thread for all sorts of info about these Guerlain offerings. Just had to put those 2 cents in.

    Haha, I'm glad!


    Picking just L'Heure Bleue feels like I'm cheating on Shalimar, Apres L'Ondee, Habit Rouge, Samsara, Nahema, & Insolence. It's just painfully difficult wahhh.

    Tough to choose just one, but if I have to, it'll be Heritage.
