I am wearing it I wore it… It inspires me It doesn't inspire me


Woody and oriental, Habit Rouge is at once sultry and refined. The top note, a mixed citrus aroma of lemon, tangerine and bergamot, has a tangy, luminous quality. Then comes a warm, sensuous midway fragrance of spice and wood: cinnamon, patchouli and cedar. The masterpiece ends on leathery amber notes. Few men's perfumes contain such a large quantity of vanilla scent.


Monsieur Jean Paul Guerlain is a horse-riding buff and the proud owner of several horses. Which is why he created the warm-toned Habit Rouge for all those horsemen out there. The maleness of Habit Rouge rhymes with skill, elegance and seduction. According to Guerlain's own words, it is geared to "an infinitely charming seeker of perfection". It is the first prestigious perfume for men with an oriental scent, and is still today a worldwide favorite among many men, as well as some women.

    Le parfum que tout le monde doit avoir dans sa salle bain. Il est unique, indémodable. Il se porte à tout âge. Je ne peux m'en passer.

    Une vraie merveille même si aux dires des anciens qui l'ont connu lors de sa création ce n'est plus le même, il reste cependant un parfum avec une signature qu'on ne confond avec aucune autre. Dans mon Top 5.

    I have been missing out. What interests me the most is that it contains a whole lot of vanilla for a man's perfume. Wonderful. I would love to try this, but it looks like I have to France. I'd love to have a reason to fly to France and this is it.

    C'est ma première fragrance "haut de gamme", à l'age de 17 ans au travers d'une crème à raser ! Depuis je n'ai cessé d’utiliser la gamme. Avec cependant une longue interruption de 1981 à ... je ne sais plus trop quand : quelqu’un m'avait dit, ravi, que cette "odeur était celle de son grand-père"... Il me semble que c'est vers l'année 2000 que je suis revenu dessus, à ma plus grande satisfaction.Depuis je l'utilise régulièrement en alternance. Très agréable à la pulvérisation, il se développe bien en laissant une odeur de cuir chaud et suave.Mais ce développement me semble cependant moins riche que celui de Pi de Givenchy.

    An all-time classic of perfumery - and a richly poetic commentary on masculinity - Habit Rouge combines citrus and leather with a sweet oriental base to create what may well be a perfect scent, ideal for all occasions. It's worth comparing the EDP, the EDT and the extrait (as well as the latest L'Eau flanker) to see how they emphasize different aspects of the construction.
