    Default Current Guerlain Homme EDP as a Replacement for the Original EDT?

    Guerlain Homme EDT has probably been my number one dumb reach scent. Fairly clean and modern, but smoothly done without any harshness or weird bits sticking out. Works well in both cool and hot weather. My bottle is coming to an end and I wanted to see what people thought about the current EDP vs the original EDT and whether it's worthwhile considering it as a replacement.

    For what it's worth, I didn't like the intense release. It wasn't bad, but it just wasn't as easy wearing and versatile as the EDT. I thought BdC EDT might play a similar role, but there's something gritty in the base that sticks out and annoys me.
    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.

    While I love both, I enjoy the EDP just a little bit more. I think you'll love it.

    The Homme EdT I ilke, but wears a little light for my tastes.

    Let us know how if like the EdP Darjeeling.
    I don't get out much. But when I do, I smell real good.

    For me I enjoyed the Homme EDT more. Personally I would opt for another Homme EDT instead.

    The edt up until recently could be found much cheaper than the edp. Now prices have gone up and they cost about the same. The edp has a more cherry vibe going on compared to the edt while the edt has more almond in it.
    Just my opinion ...

    EdT works best for me. Worth tracking down.

    Yeah sorry I got them mixed up.
    I was talking about Ideal.
    Having said that I own Guerlain Homme edt and edp.
    The edp is a bit richer and longer lasting than the edt but I kind of prefer the edt.

    IMO the EDP is a worthy replacement.

    I loved the EDT but do not like the EDP. It’s much more formal and “mature” than the EDT. AdP Colonia Club you might like as a fresh warm weather option.

    I've had both and purchased the EDP last time as a 'go to' also.

    It was equally as nice as the EDT imo.

    I see a couple of people mixing up Homme and Homme Ideal. Unfortunately Homme Ideal was a scrubber for me.

    Looks like the EdP could work out, but I really need to sample rather than blind buy even if the two scents are very close.
    Hopefully one of the department stores near me has it and I can sample it once our current lockdown finally finishes.

    I was under the impression that the Intense is now the edp.

    Yes that's true. I believe the edt was phased out in favor of the intense/edp because of performance issues.
    The edt is a fantastic scent but has performance issues unless you overspray. When I hold my edt bottle to the light I see no fragrance oils. The edp on the other hand has a rich oily texture. I do this with alot of my fragrances.
    It doesn't really mean anything but it's interesting.

    Likely to also recommend/second this a decent alternative

    Haven't tried the EDT, but I do really enjoy the EDP, and (not that you asked) I like it much more than the L'eau Boisee flanker which vanishes on my skin. The EDP feels potent and smooth, with a decent amount of sparkle for an EDP, and I find it performs quite well. When my decant runs out I'll probably pick up a bottle.

    Not sure how you'll fare in Australia, but I found a number of seemingly reputable sellers on ebay offering reasonably priced decants. Might be worth a look.

    A decant might be a good way to go.

    The edt was quite cheap until recently and all now all of a sudden it's as expensive as the edp.
