    Default New L'Homme Ideal flanker from Guerlain - L'Homme Ideal Extreme

    Hey,

    I just noticed a post about the new flanker coming out in May.
    It offers some info about the notes and prices, as well as an image.

    https://www.grand-sud-mag.com/le-printemps-de-guerlain/

    Did anyone get a chance to try it?
    Or do you know anything else about the release?

    They never stop. Does anybody still care about L'Homme Ideal flankers?

    However, Habit Rouge styled bottle looks cool!

    Thanks for this. Looking forward to getting it.

    Tbh, I'm a fan of the line.

    The original, Sport, and the now discontinued Cologne were some of my most worn casual fragrances each year.

    I was most underwhelmed by the L'Intense, as I was expecting something more dark and ashy when I saw the smoky notes. I feel like all I get is sweetness.

    I'm really curious of how "extreme" this is gonna be, but I'm not holding my breath at the same time, unfortunately.

    I didn't enjoy the L'Homme Ideal line so this one will all but certainly be no exception.

    To my nose, L'Homme Ideal line is not really outstanding or even very good to make so many parts.

    The EDP is excellent but otherwise the others are either disappointments or too overlappy. Hope this one covers new ground

    So they have an Ideal EdP, Ideal Intense AND Ideal Extreme now? They're just trying their hardest to bring this line back to the forefront aren't they.
    Move on. It is just a chapter in the past, but don't close the book, just turn the page.

    Only interested in the bottle, but doubt it will touch Guerlain’s classics they need to release a serious release sometime this century!

    I am looking forward to this. I will definitely sample.

    This line must be selling pretty well to justify all these flankers. At least they all hit the discounters and are pretty affordable. The only one I own is the EDP, and it's solid I suppose. The rest never did much for me when I sniffed them.

    My favorites, in order:

    1. Original EdT

    2. Sport

    3. Cool

    They’re all pretty good. High collectible value, too.

    This sounds interesting to me adding a tobacco note to the almond heart of L’Homme.

    what do you consider their last "serious release"?
    “All mankind is from Adam and Eve. An Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action." -

    I have the EdP which I love and Ideal Cologne which I wear for work a lot (though may not be wearing it at work for the next few weeks).

    I'm definitely interested in trying this. I also want to give Cool a try, which is tough to find.

    I think to have so many flankers, should be built upon a run-away commercial success to begin with (ADG, A*, DIOR Homme etc). Not sure that the Ideal line really qualifies.

    As for me, serious release is something that people will notice, buy and wear. I know many guys (friends, from work etc.) who love Sauvage, many who love Bleu, but nobody knows about L'Homme Ideal and its flankers.

    At least from their signature line, something unique and not flanker after flanker would be nice. Will seek to sample the new release on this thread just would like something along the lines of their classics or a quality thought out fragrance.

    It will be interesting to see how extreme this is. The original EdT and most of the flankers are already strong stuff.

    I happen to like all of them, but seems kind of silly to have both an intense and extreme flanker.

    I wonder will now the L'Homme Ideal EdP have the same fate of L'Homme Ideal Cologne flanker that was replaced by L'Homme Ideal Cool? Why make "Extreme" flanker if you already have the EdP and L'Intense? This implies potential discontinuation of either EdP or L'Intense in my opinion.

    The EDP and the Cologne are outstanding.

    The rest are MEH.

    Agree 1000% and they don't really sell people will pick up Valentino Uomo or DHI or DHP instead of them, most guys still know Guerlain for Habit Rouge or even Shalimar, they need a new creative director, Wassier has done a poor job with the exception of Nacree Rose which is his best work and now discontinued because of the exorbitant price.
