    Default Guerlain Homme EDP: Advice needed.

    Hello,
    I have the chance to blind buy this fragrance at a good price.
    I love Guerlain Vetiver and Guerlain Homme L'Eau Boisée.
    Any advice about what could I expect?
    Thank you very much.
    Best,
    BruceB

    If you like woody aromatics, although I can't be sure I think you might like it.

    I would recommend sampling anything before committing to a bottle but Guerlain Homme is a nice scent.

    The current version of Guerlain Homme is nice. You can expect a fresh, minty opening with lime followed by a heart of rum and Vetiver and soft floral notes that give it an elegant finish. It’s very nice. Although I prefer the original Guerlain Homme Intense Eau de Parfum due to its inclusion of rhubarb along with the aforementioned notes, the one that's out now is a vast improvement over what had been the most recent version of Guerlain Homme (the EDT). It’s worth owning, AFAIC.

    Id say that if you enjoyed home leau boisee you'd probably like homme edp. It does have a mojito vibe. Imagine smelling like a mojito, in a classy Guerlain type way. That is what it is to me. I'm not a huge rum in fragrance guy for whatever reason. If you get it please report back your impressions.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    This thing is awesome for the summer go out during the night! It's not typically fresh aquatic or aromatic. Very classy, creamy fresh and elegantly vibrant. One of my top wears this summer for sure.

    This was the original EDT launched in around 2007 or so.

    From a personal viewpoint alone, even if bearing in mind that the order was already placed, quite likely a safe buy considering the already existing preferences/tastes regarding the Guerlain Homme range mentioned in the thread-starting post

    Well, thanks again for the great advices.
    Finally I got it.
    And its fantastic.
    The opening, the sillage...
    Im very pleased with this parfum.
    Now, Mojito??? To tell you the truth: Cant smell it. I found citrus, greens, vetiver, smoke, woods, etc. But no mojito.
    Best!
