This is specifically to review the current, 2022/2023 formulation, in EDT.

I can't give accurate comparisons with formulations over the years, but I can say the current, square bottle, is wonderful. Continues to have the contrast the original was known for - which echoes Shalimar's contrast between its glowing topnotes and its "Guerlinade" base. I can also say that any trace of anise is gone, which isn't too upsetting.

I wouldn't hesitate in buying this formulation again. They're doing a fine job of keeping this (and Vetiver and HR) smelling great with growing restrictions.

A very pleasant citrus spice combination that is smooth and very easy for me to like. There seems to be an extraordinary scent of both vanilla and cacao combined but maybe that is the lesser known elemi coming into play. Its's hard to say. The dry down is masculine and pleasant and never becomes 'musky'. Another unique and high quality men's fragrance from Guerlain. Suitable for cool spring or fall days IMO. Just delightful...

Very pleasant cheap freshie but lacks interest and depth for me. Minty lemon pepper patchouli.

One of my favourites, it's a light, modern patchouli that is versatile and has a decent development. Lasts long enough too.

Lovely scent. Don't know if it's the elemi but it also feels boozy to me somewhere deep down. Like some sort of new, white rum infused with:
- oolong tea
- anise
- citron
- hibiscus

That's in the open and initial drydown.

A nice sandalwood-patchouli-elemi-pepper combo becoming dominant thereafter.

This is gorgeous stuff. Like Guerlain's legendary "Guerlinade" base, it's hard to describe and not fully agreed upon, but it smells amazing and complex and unique, but still crowd-pleasing.

I definitely smell vanilla and dry tobacco, together with Guerlain's signature green sweet pea note and topped with citrus. But the notes kind of don't matter because everything melts together into a fabulous smell that's just "Guerlain."

I miss the great Guerlains, and all the discussion about which one had the best Guerlinade instead of discussions about how they all suck now. This and LIDGE were probably the last great mass-market scents they put out, before the great marshmallow-fication of the house ruined everything. Thumbs way up.
