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.
    Thanks for your post ! Negative criticism is just as important as praise. Personally, I am underwhelmed by many of the newer offerings and reformulations from Guerlain.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Heritage edt if I were in a cooler/temperate or very dry climate.

    Vetiver would get the nod for the tropics (also known as Georgia, USA <grimace>).

    Mouchoir de Monsieur (though would keep under close scrutiny a respectable and still highly cherished second place equally divided between Habit Rouge in EDP or higher concentration, Guerlain Homme Intense, Songe d'un Bois d'Ete, Vetiver, vintage Heritage, even LIDGE, should Mouchoir de Monsieur ever be discontinued but easy acces to either/any of these still be possible)

    Sous le Vent, vintage, if I could ever find a bottle.

    In the meantime, it's Heritage (silver cap vintage).

    To each their own,but I feel totally opposite to how you feel,I don’t smell anything cheap about the rose or any of the ingredients in Encens.

    Infact the saffron & ambergris are some of the most natural & high quality that I have ever smelled.Not only is Encens Mythique my choice for best Guerlain,to my nose it’s the best fragrance I have ever smelled imho.Sorry but I feel just as strongly as you do just in the positive.

    I’m surprised to find EM would be someone’s favorite, but obviously not totally shocked since noses are vastly different from one another. Glad you love it though! Always rooting for other frag heads to find gems that work for themselves.

    Amen to that! I bought LIDGE based on BN hype and was very disappointed. I gave it away and it put me off of trying anything else by Guerlain for a while.

    To answer the OP's question: My number one Guerlain fragrance is Habit Rouge Dress Code, though I also enjoy all the other HRs I've tried, Vetiver, and Heritage EDT.

    It's a really hard choice for me to pick one, but it would have to be Heritage, (vintage).
    I also really love and wear Insolence and L'Heure Bleue. These two are very special to me.

    Huge fan of Santal Royal, Tonka Imperiale, Angelique Noire, L'Homme Ideal EDP & Cologne, Homme, and Vetiver. Would love to try Heritage, Habit Rouge & Dress Code, vintage Mitsouko, etc. Definitely one of my favorite houses.

    Mitsouko is also very good, and has an oak moss note similar to vintage Chanel Pour Monsieur.

    The only Guerlain I've bought and then backed up is Habit Rouge edc, so my official vote is:

    Habit Rouge

    Could have been Sous Le Vent if it was more available.
