    Default Fragrances for classic Guerlain lovers to try

    Hello, Zhang Fan here with another question. Maybe this has been asked before. But I wonder if there are some specific fragrances for people who love classic Guerlain fragrances. For example, Nicolai fragrances. What are some others which seem like Guerlain fragrances, but not made by Guerlain?

    Perhaps check what Hermes has to offer.

    Parfums MDCI also tends to have that classic, complex, a bit hazy style.

    Caron. Most of them, but especially Pour un Homme, Nuit de Noel, Tabac Blond, Bellodgia, Third Man.

    Seconded, also adding Houbigant, Jovoy, Frederic Malle, Le Couvent des Minimes, Lutens as further houses to test almost in their entirety and irrespective of gender, exclusiveness/regularity of their ranges, if Guerlain is already among the favorite houses

    Etro Shaal Nur. No doubt about it. I should get a bottle one day, but this one is a wink and nod to classic Guerlain.

    Agree with the House of Caron as well. The Third Man is my choice for something that could be worn a lot.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Pomegranate Noir, Midnight in Paris EDP, Feeling Man, Essence of John Galliano, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Aramis Calligraphy Rose, Penhaligon's Esprit de Roi, PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man ....etc. I have samples to swap.
