    P.S. Have you seen the difference between the Chypre-Siam batches? Just darker oakmoss absolute according to Manny and I can't detect a difference in the scent as he said i wouldn't...

    I love this one. I've got a $50 gift card for Neiman Marcus burning a hole in my pocket, so I'm thinking this might be one of my next.

    This one arrives tomorrow, however I do have a 2003 which is probably same formulation. Might largely be the same, but perhaps a bit more of a rootier/deeper vetiver. I don't have a 2018 version, but I do have a 2015 I think. Now when you go back into the 90's and such (I have an EdC) it's quite different, surprisingly - it has an animalic/urinous kick to it, which is awesome.

    Little tiny splash bottles of these

    Eau de Cologne Imperiale Extra Dry
    Habit Rouge EdC
    Guerlain Vetiver EdC




    I don't recall having ever tried EdC version of Habit Rouge, and I may not have ever tried Guerlain Eau de Cologne Imperiale - especially the 'Extra Dry' type.

    Worth it!

    Nice! Thanks for the reply. I swear the civet remains quite pronounced though I could be mistaking it for another note. There is an animalic sweetness that I still can't quite figure out.

    hmm, I'm not sure. But if you're finding the 2018 animalic, you gotta check out a 90's EdC version, it'll blow your mind -

    Just bought another Guerlain Vetiver. Okay, maybe I'm done for now unless I find a great deal or a BNIB for a reasonable price or something. I've gone from 0 ribbed versions to buying 3 in less than a week, baha. A 4.2oz 2003, 2.5oz 2001, and this 2.5oz 2005.
