    Default If I own Guerlain Homme EDP, is getting L'Eau Boisee redundant?

    Does Guerlain Homme L'Eau Boisée smell similar enough to Guerlain Homme Eau de Parfum (which I own) to make purchasing it redundant? Anyone want to describe the scent of L'eau Boisee in comparison to Homme EDP?

    Very different - not redundant! Worth owning both.

    EB is a more vetiveric, less mojito version of Guerlain Homme EDT.

    I find that L'Eau Boisee is more vetiver prominent, making it a bit earthier and woodier than the EDP.

    Very much this.

    Quite different. Boisee focuses on lime and vetiver much more and is quite different. Both excellent, although my favorite is the now discontinued EdT of Guerlain Homme.
    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.

    interesting. I love lime and am wondering whether I should go for Guerlain L'Eau Boisee or Cartier Declaration Essence.

    They are quite different. Boisee is fresher, lighter, doesn't have the Mojito note.

    but it's lime-centric right?

    Also tending to agree that they are different enough to not make owning both redundant

    There is a lot of lime in the opening.

    Another really good lime dominant frag, similar to this is Gap The Natural. It may be marketed as for women, or unisex, but it's a masculine frag imo. It's similar to Boisee, but more synthetic smelling, more like Royall Lyme, but with more depth. I actually just found a plethora of them on Ebay, testers, for 25 bucks, so I bought a back up, as this one is discontinued and very hard to find usually. Very underrated lime frag, but the performance sucks!

    Hi cberueffy. If that's not you, then what a coincidence, haha.

    Not redundant, but kind of in a similar vein.
    Guerlain Homme L'Eau Boisee for an easier wear, good for warmer weather, casual clothing.
    Guerlain Homme still pretty casual but can be dressed up, may be better in an indoor environment instead of outside. Perhaps not quite as much of a dumb grab as L'Eau Boisee.
