Maison Guerlain re-launches its successful Habit Rouge fragrance in a lighter and calmer form. Lightened of its leathery notes, Habit Rouge L’Eau is a fresh and contemporary orchestration of the legendary Habit Rouge.
Created in 1965 by Jean-Paul Guerlain, Habit Rouge was the first oriental fragrance for men in perfumery. Habit Rouge is considered at Guerlain to be the ‘Shalimar for Men’. From the moment of its launch, this tribute to Guerlain’s passion for the dressage of horses created an element of surprise with its scents of sensual and bold vanilla.
Habit Rouge incarnates a man who is enamoured of refinement and capable of all manner of audacity. He lives his life fervently and distinguishes himself with a trail of extreme sensuality. With its modern geometry and mastery of form, Habit Rouge has an eternally elegant French appeal.
The original Habit Rouge fragrance adopts the alchemy of a stylised and modern freshness. Habit Rouge L’Eau, created by Thierry Wasser, puts the finery of the classic version back in the saddle, especially its fresh facets, highlighted and underpinned by unexpected new notes.
It is a ‘softer, easy-to-wear and less contracted adaptation of the original. Delicately fresh, but with a less intense citrus opening, and a lighter base without any leather’. Wafting bitter orange notes and the botanical freshness of the hazel tree note light up the fragrance. Then, an evanescent jasmine note shines with flawless transparency, before vanilla and patchouli create an enveloping trail.
This flirtatious and intimate fragrance encompasses countless unforgettable sensations of romantic and thrilling moments, an exquisite duality between sensuality and freshness.
Guerlain Habit Rouge L’Eau is available as 100 ml Eau de Toilette.
